    Costly Consequences Driven By... Party Establishment

    That's right.  CD-11 just told the only Republican on the August Primary ballot, FU.  Yup.  Party establishment is going to make the whole disastrous CD-11 process a costly primary and general election battle.

    Former state Sen. Nancy Cassis, a Novi Republican, is the consensus candidate among a group of 11 GOP leaders in Oakland and Wayne counties to run a write-in 11th district congressional campaign in wake of the botched effort to put U.S. Rep. Thaddeus McCotter on the ballot.

    The name of only one Republican, Kerry Bentivolio of Milford, will appear on the Aug. 7 primary ballot.

    A group including Oakland County Executive L. Brooks Patterson voted unanimously this morning to back Cassis after interviewing several candidates. Former state Sen. Loren Bennett who had launched a write in campaign last week will drop his candidacy, Patterson said.

    Rest here

    Wouldn't it be ironic if meddling ringleader Brooks, lost the district in the general and we all end up with a Nancy anyway?  As in, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Part II.

    Stranger things have happened...

    All articles from here out should have several deviations in spelling of the name Cassis, or was it Classic, or Casssis, or Cassiss, or Casis, or Casios..  gosh, now I am confused.

    Oy vey!  No way in hell I'd vote for Nanny Casiss.

    The confab was necessary, Patterson said, because the party can't get behind Bentivolio, the Republican who made the Aug. 7 primary ballot. Bentivolio raises reindeer and launched his candidacy to challenge McCotter on issues like government spending and borrowing.

    "While there is an individual on the ballot, the people deserve a choice, and that shouldn't be an accidental choice," Cassis said.

    Accidental?  Ya mean like FRAUD on Thad McModerate's behalf?

    "Patterson said Bentivolio's priorities were too extreme for him to accept."

    As they say," Let's go the tape!"

    "What does Kerry Stand for

    I stand for The Constitution every single time.
    No exceptions and no excuses. We are a
    rule of law country.

    The Constitution is the
    Supreme Rule of Law. It's purpose is to restrain
    the government and protect the life, liberty and property
    of the individual.

    How I Will Determine My Vote

    Article 1 Section 8 gives specific enumerated powers
    to Congress. Anything not expressed within this section
    is outside the authority given to Congress.

    These are the questions I will ask on every bill:

    1) Does the Constitution give us the authority to act on this issue?
        -If yes, continue to question two
        -If no...then vote no!

    2) Will it benefit ALL of the people?
        -If yes, continue to question three
        -If no...then vote no!

    3) Can we afford it NOW without having to borrow?
        -If yes...vote yes
        -If no...then vote no!"

    <sarcasm> Yeah, I can definitely see the problem here!</sarcasm>

    Either Brooks has fallen off of the wagon, or he has some SERIOUS explaining on where the above conflicts in any way with this.

    I did a cursory search on Ms. Cassis' record.

    It isn't pretty.

    I'm a little short on time, but I'll have something up this weekend.
