Lots of stuff about Mike “Tiny” Cox We could tell you how Cox is pissed off at Al Sharpton for doing something Al Sharpton-like. Or we could tell you how some police dispatcher says Cox attended the Manoogian stripper party. Instead, we want to talk about Andrew Shirvell, Cox’s former campaign manager and an Assistant Attorney General. Shirvell loves Cox but doesn’t care for the gays. When... Read more→

City Council takes the Dyspathy line Remember how Dyspathy called out convicted felon Kwame Kilpatrick for his complicity in Aiyana Jones’ death? City Council agrees. Are they readers? Anyway, Kwame Kenyatta wants Bill Goodman to write a letter to Groner explaining how Kilpatrick fucked up the federal monitoring process by (allegedly) fucking the federal monitor. Go City Council. Of course,... Read more→

“Democracy is the worship of jackals by jackasses.” – H.L. Mencken As one digs deeper into Sunday’s tragedy, it becomes clear this goes beyond what happened at the scene. Maybe there was a confrontation with the grandmother, or maybe the cops went in shooting. It doesn’t matter which story ultimately is proven truthful.

Do we have to talk about this? Yes. Because the Aiyana Jones story gets worse with every new detail. Geoffrey Fieger says the police started shooting before they were in the house. Naturally, the bishopocracy has something to say about this tragedy and (naturally) they miss the point. The Elmer Gantrys want A&E to stop being so mean to Detroit. In fairness, at least they have something to say.... Read more→

If you don’t tell your own story, someone else will tell it for you. It’s a basic PR rule. Since Dave Bing isn’t talking about last week’s transparent invite-only planning summit, we’re free to imagine how it went down. For instance this video imagines a pre-summit meeting between Mayor Bing and PR flack Karen Dumas. It’s based on the fine investigative and rhetorical... Read more→

Crazed, naked gunman reminds us of Sting We hate Sting. In addition to being a rock star (of sorts), the former Police frontman is married to an ex-model, lives in a castle, and is some kind of tantra sex expert. That’s too much for one person. You can have two or three of those things but not all four. Which brings us to this lunatic outside of WDIV. He shot this rickety old pistol into the air... Read more→

Dave Bing’s secret plot for global domination Public relations are for sissies. Dave Bing doesn’t go in for that fairy transparent government stuff. Instead, he convenes secret meetings and avoids public comment about pretty much everything. That’s why his most paranoid critics are able to spin bizarre conspiracy theories. Trails of tears! Pretty soon Agnes Hitchcock will have Bing as The... Read more→

Political nerd porn Yesterday was candidate filing day! Let’s review the fun. Starting in Macomb County, because that’s where we always find the awesome. Our muse Carey Torrice is running for state Senate and ready to shake up Lansing. Sadly, C. Montgomery “Matty” Moroun’s aged boyfriend Ted Wahby won’t run for County Executive after all. Former reporter Hawke Fracassa entered and then... Read more→
