Lt. Gov. Brian Calley on Tuesday called for a special election to fill the seat of U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, who resigned suddenly on Friday.
Nice, eh? Mass confusion created for an establishment player's write-in campaign.

And Nancy, you want a fight? You may have it.
There is no way your campaign will get an ounce of help from real conservatives before or after the primary, if you pursue the unnecessary path of a write-in campaign. Especially when there is a candidate on the ballot who not only meets the standards of being a Republican, but also has followed the rules, played the game appropriately, and was willing to live with the results of the contest prior to the fraud perpetrated by McCotter's bumbling help.
It frankly demonstrates WHY its a good idea to have a primary EVERY time. At least we HAVE someone there.
But a write in campaign? Now this is getting into stupid season.
First its Rocky, who courted the Tea Party, was backed by the TPX, had OUR support, but showed his true BLUE colors in dissing the ONE guy who played the game right. Never again Rocky. You FIGHT the Tea folks next time.
Then its Saul and company, acting all comfy with tea folk until it didn't select one of his hand picked favorites, and he uses the machinery of the MiGOP to steal a delegate when completely unnecessary. We know how THAT landed.
Now Nancy, you want to test your will? You should have at least been there from the start. YOU should have filed when the others did. But you didn't, and you believe that fading fast RINO Patterson? Do you REALLY think you have a chance? Really?
