Something about Cox and Granholm, Peter Karmanos follows in Tony Giacolone’s footsteps , and Brighton’s right to dry hump

Granholm-Cox health care reform slap fight
After a year of legislative wrangling, the health care bill is law. Naturally, while most people are moving on to other battles, third-raters Jennifer Granholm and Mike Cox are suddenly very concerned about health care reform. Cox, in an effort to protect the taxpayers, will use the taxpayers money to file a Constitutionally-dubious and frivolous lawsuit. TORT REFORM NOW! Granholm doesn’t like it, but she’ll back down. Hell, she didn’t have the backbone to support her own symbolic “yay vegetarians” proclamation, do you really think she has the moral integrity to defend universal health care? (MLive)

Wasting the Court of Public Opinion’s time
Convicted felon Kwame Kilpatrick’s restitution/probation hearing of the century is set to go into its seventh month. Yesterday’s testimony revealed that reputation quack Mike Paul was only paid $1. So far. That only came out after he tried to play the confidentiality card on the witness stand. Paul has the Ron Ziegler-like ability to make his client look worse. And some tacky city contractor gave the Kilpatrick kids money because Elham Shayota cares about education. Maybe she considered a five-figure donation to  the Mosaic Theater, United Negro College Fund, or Think Detroit PAL. But how would that help education more than throwing cash at the Kilpatricks? (Freep, more Freep)

Feds question Karmanos, score one for Hartford
Well, well, well. It seems that you can’t pay an elected official to influence an official act (i.e. resignation) by said elected official without answering some tough legal questions. And, totally unrelated to any business relationship between Karmanos and Team Kilpatrick, Karmanos also made some donations to the Kilpatrick Civic Fund. He just loves to fund civic good works. Like convicted felon and former other woman Christine Beatty’s $100,000 “consulting” contract from the Civic Fund. The Congressmother also testified. Just for Bernard “the Killer” Kilpatrick’s information, the U.S. does not have an extradition treaty with either Zimbabwe or North Korea. (DetNews, Freep)

Showdown on the AM radio
Dull chatster Frank Beckman interviewed old Congressman John Dingell on his daily broadcast for the aged and ignorant. Dingell, who is clearly slowed by father time, pretty much took apart Beckman’s paranoid assertions about the new health care law. Rush Limbaugh fans listening (because they had to get up early and call MARVIN) were probably horrified. Clearly tired of Beckman’s factless passive-aggressiveness, Dingell accused the once-serviceable sportscaster of “spreading useless terror” and even employed the classic Reagan line: “there you go again.” Beckman feigned outrage at this attack upon his honor. Then there was a Sleep Number bed commercial, the end. (WJR)

They can take away our prom, but they can never take away OUR FREEDOM!
The jackbooted educators at Brighton High School wish to ban sexually suggestive dancing at prom. The students will have none of it and threatened a boycott. Don’t you see? If they can ban freaking today, then tomorrow they can ban slow dancing, and the waltz the next day. On and on until students are forced to drive out to the old mill and heterosexually dance with Kevin Bacon and Chris Penn. It that a future you want to live in? I just want my prom back. (DetNews)

This, totally.

Not to mention there are probably pretty good pubic schools in this upscale suburb they live in now, and $120,000/year should be sufficient to fund tuition. But there I go again expecting the Kilpatricks to use their own money to fund their lifestyle.

PUBLIC. Crap. (shamefacedly sneaks away).

Hey, I went to pubic school. There’s no shame in that.

Actually, I’d be willing to give the Health Care debacle some much needed time on the back-burner if the idiots in DC would put the same energy into doing something about this godforsaken shitty economy.

Unfortunately, I think the economy issue will continue to gather dust while the “green movement” gets to be the next windmill that’s tilted at.

Mike Cox, he wrecked.

I think the health care problem is a big part of the shitty economy, Lord Xenu.
