You Don’t Say?

Inside Michigan Politics ranks its most conservative and most liberal legislators, and guess what?

HB4736Susan Demas, not exactly known for sympathy to conservative causes must be having fun.

Recently editing the Inside Michigan Politics scoring of conservative and liberal state representatives, she gets to shame Republicans with their own rhetoric, and as a bonus, can gloat over the self inflicted loss of true conservative voting in the Michigan house. Her report:

Inside Michigan Politics has compiled the definitive rankings of the “Most Liberal and Most Conservative” members of the House of Representatives for 2015. The rankings are based on 28 litmus test roll-call votes this year.

“Most Conservative” winners Courser and Gamrat both notched 4.8% liberal voting records. Following them is Rep. Gary Glenn (R-Midland) with a 7.1% liberal record. Reps. Jim Runestad (R-White Lake) and Lana Theis (R-Brighton) tied for third by posting 10.7% liberal voting records.


A reminder BTW, that such ‘diehard’ conservatives Glenn, Runestad, and Theis all voted yea on the expulsion of Gamrat, and the expected expulsion of Courser prompted him to resign prior to expulsion.  Gosh, they could have used a vote or two of support on HB4736, as each voted correctly to deny the government beast more of our kibble.

    Even if every single Republican had voted to stand beside them at that time...the only people who really mattered (their constituents) obviously didn't soon afterwards.

    Furthermore, If statewide 'conservatives' were so worried about defending either of them from expulsion they would have put pressure on 'somebody' to act accordingly.

    That pressure never came and the 2nd (final) shoe finally fell (the botched "PowWow" being the first) on a whole lot of people's hopes for a (current) legitimate opposition party here in Michigan.

    I don't blame either of them for any of the above.

    We need to blame OURSELVES for (literally) fielding a consistently nonexistent 'bench' after almost 7 years of trying.
