Midweek, a lot more going on in Lansing than you might think based on the few posts locally. Of course D Conservative has put a bit of work into his Redistricting analysis cross posted to us from The Western Right But who else is talking Michigan politics?
Start with Jack McHugh of the Mackinac Center, who thinks the DRIC discussion isn't one to embrace with Four Reasons Why the Tea Party Should Ignore Detroit Bridge Controversy
K-12 School funding suffering at the hands of Snyder? To give to 'higher education"? A Conservative Teacher thinks so.
Over at The Rougblog, the motor city described as a city governed by the delusional lives in a state of delusion
Traverse City Schools move a meeting to a never used time to avoid public input and objection. Bill at TCFamily.org thinks so as the LBGT agenda moves forward in Northern Michigan.
And if you didn't see the post over at MTTM, a Seriously Condescending Upton Man gets all smart alecky with a constituent.
If you know of any blogs not listed here that have to do with Michigan politics, then add them in the comments.

As many of you know, the new body makeup gives new life to rule of law.
May 25th 2007 was an important date. Remember this.
So was the day the lights were turned out in the house early August of 2008.
The 25th of May was a discovery date for a certain member of Congress. It was the date that a certain high ranking congressman discovered the radical potential of wealth that could be generated by high gas prices. IF.. one holds an interest in breaking Natural gas technology that is.
So, who wants to be a hero to the Michiganders who instead of paying their mortgage, filled the tank to get to the job that was about to go away? Who would out of the gate, set their sights on the person who for the sake of profit, broke the back of the American worker already on the ropes from a declining average income? And, who designed and capitulated in 'green' contrivances which had little effect except the destruction of an economy that once seemed unbreakable.
