Romney Beats Santorum in Michigan. Both Sore Losers

Rick Santorum didn't win in Michigan yesterday.  That's the good news. The bad news is that Mitt Romney did.  In a better world, the vote would have been for "Noton Yourlife", but we've come to accept that even those destined to be harmed the most by that bunch will vote for the one who promises to hurt them hard enough to leave scars.

Because Michigan is an open primary state, there was a push by certain of the left to make it a win for Santorum.  The reasoning was that his relentless, escalating, off-the-wall, on-the-pulpit rantings would finally do him in and, come November, nobody in their right mind would vote for him.  With Santorum in the race Obama would handily claim the prize. 

Obviously, they haven't been paying attention.  It doesn't matter who wins in Michigan or anywhere else.  Big Money is going to back the Republican nominee and since it's worked so well for them all these long ages, they'll pay big to keep the hate machine going.

The hate machine is all the Right Wing has left.  It's what fuels their desperate efforts to make the country in their own image and they've been at it for so long they're not about to give up now. This is their moment.  They're on the verge of complete control.  They've already taken over states like Michigan, Wisconsin, Ohio, Arizona, Virginia--and who knows how many more would fall if they could finally eliminate or at least emasculate the federal government?  What a coup!  And all done legally, without a single shot fired.  It could all happen in the voting booth.  The United States could be the first sovereign nation in the world to vote themselves out of existence.

In his Wasn't-I-Great-in-Michigan? concession speech last night Santorum repeated the same old stuff:  I'll keep hating on Obama, I'll repeal that crazy health care act, I'll make sure we can pray and preach anywhere we want to, I'll. . .I'll. . .okay, goodnight, then.

In his We didn't win by as much as I would have liked but dammit we won acceptance speech, Romney promised to keep on hating on Obama, to repeal Obamacare, to lower the taxes on business, and to run the country as any good cost-cutting CEO looking out for his best buds would do.

To say that each of them lied through their teeth is to repeat the obvious.  Over the days and weeks we'll keep harping on the lies, blathering on about what lying liars they are, as if pointing out the truth is some sort of weapon.   Pea-shooters against Goliath.

We're in for a long fight.  November is a long way off.  But history will never be able to record that Rick Santorum won the Republican primary in my beautiful state of Michigan.   That's my energizer this morning.

At Peace

 Onward.

What amazed me is that Kid Rock who is supposedly ALL about Detroit, ENDORSED Romney! You know, the same guy who said to let Detroit go bankrupt..Unbelievable.

I guess I have to say that nothing surprises me anymore when it comes to Republicans and elections. There is no normal anymore. The turnout was low, however, and not surprisingly, the Republican women voted against Santorum. (Why there are still Republican women DOES surprise me.)

Just discovered you blog. Looks good. Honestly I haven't had much time to look around yet but I'll bookmark it for tomorrow. I am cruising all the progressive blogs and saw yours mentioned on a blog list.

Here's my own. Take a look and maybe we can work together sometime if you are interested.

Welcome, Nomad. Went to look at your blog and it looks good. A nice addition to a growing progressive catalog. I've added your link to my blogroll by using your home page addy but it's stuck on something from two weeks ago, for some reason. I'm hoping it'll straighten itself out

Thanks for linking my blog to your blogroll. I'll check back when I can.

But the real reason I'm hijacking this thread is because. . .okay. . .I didn't see my blog on your blogroll. How's come, Yooper? You're on mine.
It's kinda hard to put a blog on the blogroll if you don't know the blog exists, which I didn't know about your blog until today.

From your info I gather you live on Drummond Island. I live a couple hundred miles west of there in the "highest community in Michigan".
