    Olongapo Crotch Rot got one right (1.00 / 1) (#2)

    Big whoop.  Michigan isn't the only state level Republicans that have drawn an scrutiny, look at Iowa and Maine.  The alleged end all be all caucus solution is not immune from establishment corruption either.  Sure, Saul needing to go is a given, but how some were able to give benefit of doubt to Conservative conviction with regard to the Party chair still puzzles me.

    For the sake of argument, I'll give the benefit of the doubt on in-state dems outside of Stabenow (who is up in 2012) and chalk it up to builders politics. But Gore? Lieberman in 04? Bill Bradley? Mark Udall and Ben Cardin for key open seats in 06 and 08? Byrum over Rogers? Carnahan in a key swing state. This isn't one, two, or three democrats, but several, and some key ones including presidential campaigns.

    Maybe Schostak is party switcher. I hope that is the case and if so, would explain some of the donations.

    But I have a major concern. There's some schisms and rifts within the party. They will come out in the 2012 elections. I see some "third way" (Clintonian/DLC) tendencies in the donation history. Leland, Jacobs, Stabenow, Lieberman, Gore, Kerry, Byrum, Udall, Cardin, Crist, and Reed. I see that as well in the Romney support for 2008, and later McCain. I don't think Schostak ever cared much for the Daily Kos or Kucinich wing of the dems.

    There's also a schism especially between the Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin wings going back to the end of the 2008 race. For the record, I support neither as my first choice in 2012. There are several candidates I would support before either of them.

    However, it's the MIGOP's job to support who the nominee is. Can I count on Schostak to support whoever the nominee is and do the necessary work to give the candidate a solid chance to win Michigan?

    Let me make this clear, that is not a slam or put down towards Republican Michigander.  It is the best and clearest thoughts available on the Party's choosing of its chair that readily comes to mind.  I just happen to be a bigger skeptic than others as I was when Bushite RINO Weiser was trying to cover dumping on the TEA folk August 2010.  Hindsight is mostly 20/20 and it is more than apparent that chair Schostak does not hold transparency nor Conservative principles in the same regard as a 'native son' and his well funded Progressive personal whims.  Next time though, when anyone looks at where a businessman's money is thrown I would strongly suggest to heed Jack's words.  Those that fund the agenda of Left should not be trusted.  Ever.

    Both Saul Anuzis, and chair Schostak, should resign effective immediately in attempts to restore some semblance of integrity within the Party for the upcoming U.S. Senate election.
