    Giggle of the morning.

    Aside from the EFM and Bankruptcy taking away the fun of being mayor of Hiroshima North, the election's write in results are worth a guffaw. Mike Dugeon, a last minute write-in candidate for Mayor who was supposed to take away a number of votes through confusion from Mike Duggan got no more than the number of votes in his immediate family. The voting result:

    Detroit Mayor
    Write In: Mike Duggan     44,395     45%
    Benny Napoleon             28,352     29%
    Write-In (other)    5,916     5%
    Krystal Crittendon     5,295     5%
    Lisa Howze             4,581     3%
    Tom Barrow          3,690     2%
    John Olumba          1,327     1%
    Fred Durhal Jr.     841     1%
    Willie Lipscomb Jr.     303     1%
    Angelo Scott Brown     182     1%
    Herman Griffin     165     1%
    Sigmunt Szczepkowski Jr.     146     1%
    Mark Murphy     142     1%
    Jean Vortkamp     138     1%
    John Telford     110     1%
    D'Artagnan Collier     91     1%
    Write In: Mike Dugeon     17     1%
    17 Votes.

    A few days ago Dugeon was carjacked.

    It seems there was an encore performance.

    Nope. The real performance begins... (none / 0) (#1)

    ...when the person(s) who put someone up who wasn't even remotely interested in voting (not even for Pres. B.O. ... GASP!), doesn't even show up to debates, and runs for for mayor of all things, is finally "outted".

    Get ready for a real show...

    So does that mean . . . (none / 0) (#2)

    . . . that we have Mike Duggan vs. Benny Napoleon in the November runoff (only now Duggan's name will actually be on the ballot)?  Because that's how I'm reading it.

    And, I missed it... (none / 0) (#3)

    ...by that much.  OABTW - Republican Michigander's comment is spot on.

    Which makes me wonder... how many do you all think, of Treasurer Andy Dillon's cronies were deployed to help with the writing?

    C'mon, 61% - 39% for a carpetbagging creepy ass cracka write-in candidate in the City of Detoilet.  Really?

    Just saying...

    Just for the record . . . (none / 0) (#5)

    . . . when the hell was the last time a write-in candidate honestly did that well?

    Betcha this TV spot had something to do with it:
