    'Tea Party' off Michigan ballot

    Not the one you think:

    'Tea Party' off Michigan ballot | detnews.com | The Detroit News

    The Michigan Supreme Court ruled today the controversial Tea Party group -- criticized as a Democratic ploy to siphon votes away from Republicans -- will not be on the November ballot. "We are definitely pleased that the scam that was being perpetrated has been stopped," said John Pirich, an attorney for tea party groups around the state. "We also hope that the investigation into this activity proceeds as expeditiously as possible."
    ...

    The ruling comes a day after The Detroit News reported links between Democrats and The Tea Party group with 23 candidates that included the former stepmother of the former leader of the Oakland County Democratic Party being recruited to run as well as another candidate who had placed last in a 2008 Democratic primary. The scandal over The Tea Party group forced the resignation of Mike McGuinness, the former Oakland County Democratic chairman, and the firing of Jason Bauer, an organizer for the county Democrats who has been accused of notarizing many of the nominations.

    ...

    Susan Qashat, a Tea Party candidate for the 26th district house seat, told The News in an interview Thursday she thought she was running for an office to help the Democrats but later learned it was The Tea Party her former stepson, McGuinness, had signed her up for. "I was surprised as hell when someone called and said you're a candidate for The Tea Party," Qashat said. "The Tea Party is a Republican movement. I'm a full-fledged Democrat."

    I'm in agreement with you.

    On the other hand, I think getting on the ballot at all is more of a pain in the ass than it should be.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    This is bad. Talk about dirty pool.

    The "Tea Party" isn't a party at all from what I'm told.

    The Dims (no spell error) will resort to anything now that their Savior is under attack and being exposed as the Amateur he most certainly is. Remember the shots fired at the Dim office a few months ago and they caught the guy whole did it and he turned out to be one of them involved in a false flag operation.

    Please also keep in mind that the Liberal accuse Conservatives all the time of doing things that they themselves are guilty of. It's right out of the ruled for radicals that the Lefties have been using for a long time.

    Those who stand for nothing fall for anything.

    I personally love how some folks know Alinsky inside and out yet attribute that to people they disagree with. Which rule is that?

    Maybe this will help. It's good to know what your opponent is up to. Obama taught from Rules for Radicals
    ************************************************** *****************************

    Those principles are the ones that the late left-wing activist Saul Alinsky outlined in his 1971 book “Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals.” Leahy’s book, “Rules for Conservative Radicals,” boils them down and scraps Alinsky’s more “amoral” suggestions. “The problem that conservatives have with Alinsky is that, for him, the ends justified the means,” explained Leahy. “I’m suggesting that we take the successful Alinsky rules, we update them and apply them to new social networking technology, and we execute them in the Judeo-Christian tradition.”

    Yup, Democrats will resort to any tactic, even attacking a veteran who left 3 limbs on the battlefield as unAmerican and a terrorist sympathizer..... Oops, that one wasn't Democrats, that's what the GOP did to Senator Max Cleland of Georgia.

    Get off your high horse, there are douche bags on both sides here.

    Lent your copy of the book out did you?
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
