  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    For support, questions, and general help with Scoop, email support@scoophost.com

    Tag: National Popular Vote Interstate Compact

    The return address on the envelope is familiar, and it should be, though strangely enough no name (business or person) is provided with it.  So far as I can tell, this letter was sent out to the entire voting membership of the Michigan Republican Party state central committee (117 people) . . . at a minimum.  If the letter was sent outside that list, and how far outside that list if so, I don't know, nor do I think it much matters at this juncture.  What I find disturbing about the letter is the lengths to which a self-proclaimed conservative republican will go in order to advance yet another progressive cause.

    That's Saul Folks . . . He Still Hasn't Learned

    You would think that, after the mudhole he had stomped into his keister back at the May state convention, lame-duck National Committeeman Saul Anuzis would understand that we the people are a tad more aware of what's going on politically in our state, especially with regard to stealth initiatives aimed at permanently undermining either our individual liberties, or our constitutional protections against government overreach.  Unfortunately, you'd be wrong.

    You might then think that I'm referring to the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, which Saul has subtly pushed on his blogsite at least four times since the May state convention; either suggesting the possibility of one candidate (perhaps Romney) winning the popular presidential vote while the other (perhaps Obama) wins the Electoral College, or suggesting the possibility of an Electoral College tie.  Never-you-mind the reality that, according to Nate Silver of FiveThirtyEight, the statistical likelihood of the former is currently either 2.0% or 3.2% (depending on which way the inconsistency breaks), and of the latter is currently 0.3%.

    You'd be wrong there, too.  No, Saul has a whole other trick up his sleeve this time around, and a whole different progressive cause that he's advocating for.

    A Message To Our Legislators - Beware False Choices

    Because I couldn't have said it better myself, I wanted to share with you an e-mail that I received from State Representative Tom McMillin a couple of hours ago.

    Yesterday, State Representative Dave Agema submitted his Convention Candidate Affidavit of Candidacy to the MIGOP Policy Committee (via the State Party Chairman), complete with the approval signatures of eight district chairs.  Now, it's officially on.  And an indication of how this campaign is going to be fought is the name that's showed up on my caller ID five times in the past 36 hours (though he somehow hasn't yet seen fit to leave a message on my voicemail).

    How to NOT Court Tea Partiers

    Tags: U.S. Senate - class 1 seats, MIGOP 2012 U. S. Senate Primary, Clark Durant, Saul Anuzis, National Popular Vote Interstate Compact, Dick Wadhams, tea party hater, Michigan Tea Party Patriot Network (all tags)

    So far as I'm aware, there are currently about 152 separate organizations (including umbrella groups with their franchises) comprising the Michigan Tea Party Patriot Network.  I say, "so far as I'm aware," because I'm still doing some digging with regard to publicly-available information (there are at least four lists, and none of them are identical) for another research project; but the larger point that should not be lost is that the tea party movement in Michigan is without question a force to be reckoned with.

    However, out in Colorado earlier this year, the then-chairman of the Colorado GOP, Dick Wadhams, seemed insistent on blaming the Colorado Tea Party Patriot Network for two major losses (governor and senate) in 2010 as he pulled his reelection bid for COGOP chair.  Never mind that this cat's been on a losing streak since 2006, nor that the republicans picked up two congressional seats, one State Senate seat, and six state house seats, flipping the congressional delegation and the state H of R . . . nope, it had to be the tea party's fault.  At the time, Mr. Wadhams didn't know what his next career move would be.  On Mackinac Island last weekend, we found out where he landed.
