Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
It's more east vs west. East side of the state is pretty democratic, Detroit, Ann Arbor, the thumb I think. Grand Rapids and environs, plus the northern part of the state is pretty republican. Kinda early to tell how the 2010 elections will go, though a similar split between house and senate is likely. People are starting to line up for the governor's race, but no name really stands out except for maybe Terri Lynn Land, who is a republican.

Monica Conyers gets called out and ****ing BRUTALIZED by an eighth grader. Watch the whole thing.
Other proud moments on her resume:
In April 2009, one day after denying the relation, Conyers admitted she helped her brother, Reggie Esters, a convicted felon, obtain a city job that was originally to last four months, but was extended to two years, ending only when Esters' absenteeism became an issue. Esters is reported to have submitted a false resume.In February 2009, Conyers was involved in a confrontation with fellow councilmember Kwame Kenyatta. After Kenyatta insisted that Conyers submit in writing her request to cut his budget Conyers insulted Kenyatta about his hearing aid, health, and lack of education. Conyers stated that Kenyatta needed to "learn how to talk a woman", to which Kenyatta replied that when he was with a woman, he will do so. Conyers then had to be restrained by a council staffer and a council security officer as she attempted to approach Kenyatta.In March 2009, Conyers led a group of five Detroit City Council members that blocked the transfer of ownership of Detroit Cobo Hall (the home of the North American International Auto Show) to a regional authority consisting of representatives from Wayne, Oakland and Macomb Counties. During a heated council meeting discussing the deal, she told Isaac Robinson, a white official of the Teamsters union, that most of the people that work at the show "don't look like me. They look like you." She was quick to deny any implications of racism to the media when questioned about the comments. Conyers went on to claim Black people "cannot be racist".
People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.
