Yay.. and.. yawn.. its official.. A guy with a wish list and some pocket change wants to take advantage of a no win situation for Democrats in the upcoming Michigan Governor’s race. Spend a lot of money and assume the position of head monkey flag bearer for the state GOP.. Just Ducky.. According to the AP through Forbes:
Snyder said he wants to revitalize Michigan’s economy by drawing on his business background. Michigan’s unemployment rate has been highest in the nation for 26 of the last 27 months. It hit 15.2 percent in June.
What type of businesses would his background help? Stem Cell research facilities harvesting dead babies for their product? Businesses specializing in insurance for the newly accepted “gay worker wife plans?”
A relative newcomer to Michigan’s political scene, Snyder may have to mount an expensive campaign to promote his name and political platform. But being considered an outsider could help him. He said Tuesday he won’t accept political action committee money, but instead will rely on donations from supporters.
Supporters.. Family and friends? His personal banker? Gay lobby? Being an outsider (newcomer) he should stay clear this round.. Considering an earlier report by the Free Press:
He supports using human embryos to create stem cells for medical research. He favors government recognition of rights for gay and lesbian couples much like those accorded married couples. He opposed the ban on race and gender preferences approved by Michigan voters in 2006.
OK three out of three.. that-are-wrong. Why is he a Republican? Oh yeah, I noted in the first part that this is a no win for a Democrat. He wants his bucket list complete perhaps? His “biological clock is running,” and that baby needs to be born?! Who the heck knows.. But his positions run contrary to conservative and generally Republican stands, and this time, that might just matter… it better.
What the hell, I am going to throw my hat in too! I mean I don’t have wide name recognition, have a failed business experience or two to draw upon, but wait.. oh yeah.. I don’t have oodles of cash to piss away like a born again adolescent buying a brand shiny new little red sports coupe. So I guess I’ll just kick back and bitch about stupid people who would put Jenny II with a Republican Doo in a position to maintain a “green” State that will STILL HAVE NO JOBS.
Yeah.. But hey he gave the Republicans $500 in 2005.. But.. On the other hand Dingell a Democrat, recieved $1000.00 from Snyder in 2006. Hmm Bet I know whom he voted for in the last presidential cycle… Can you say Spasibo Comrade? ..Nyet..?
Why is he in the Republican side of the race again? Oh Right.. “bucket list.”
Speaking of which.. Any one have a spare parachute and feel like .. nah never mind, it ain’t gonna happen.
