    It may well be as only an advisory so folks can get an idea of the general sense of who Tea folks support, but it does get people involved.

    After the holidays, there will be more on this.


    Thanks for the input . . . (none / 0) (#6)

    . . . and I say that honestly.  There's apparently been a lot of disinformation floating out there with regard to MI4CS and what it's supposed to be accomplishing.  Quite frankly, the original article was written based on what I knew when I wrote it.  A couple of conversations later, evidently I don't know what I thought I knew.

    I well remember the dust-up at the August 2010 state convention as well as the charade that was the tea party town hall the night before (especially given that I was right in the thick of the whole thing).  With that first-hand memory still active in my head, I'll admit that it's awfully easy to smell a rat based on something not looking kosher.  The fact that key players in MI4CS don't seem to be interested in returning my phone calls when I'm just trying to figure this whole thing out doesn't help matters any.

    Given the fiercely independent streak amongst the several groups within the MI-TPPN, and that many of them were also heavily involved in that same goat rodeo, the FreedomWorks letter implying support for one candidate, and the apparent exclusion of some groups for no other reason than that they've already decided which candidate they're backing ("apparent" being the operative word) . . . I get where some of the caterwauling is coming from.  I don't necessarily agree with it, but I get it.  Mind you, I get that there's a need to scrounge through the master list of tea parties in Michigan (to the extent that such a list exists) and make an honest attempt to weed out the poseurs.  And frankly, I'm engaged in similar research.  Perhaps we should compare notes.

    Yes, I've recently registered for the MI4CS forums.  My intention is to learn about this process, accurately inform others about it (something I apparently do well), and perhaps assist (if there's a clear way to do so).  And if I could actually get to the forum index, then I'd gladly propose the "sacrificial lamb" primary challenge to Stabenow; in the meantime, feel free to make the proposal for me.

    Yeah, I saw the press release with regard to one candidate pulling out of MI4CS.  The feedback I'm seeing with regard to this press release is mixed to say the least (it's secured the votes of some and cost the votes of others).  Right now, I'm beginning to think that this fella might better serve the conservative insurgency by mounting a primary challenge to Dave Camp (someone many believe needs to be primaried).

    I fully agree with your closing point, "... learn from past lessons, and try to communicate and coordinate efforts ..." as well as Designated Conservative's view that the smartest thing that any of these candidates can do is to endorse the goals and priorities of the Tea Party movement and explain how they plan to support and implement those goals and priorities once elected.  IMO, that's a much smarter way to get tea party support than to go around seeking key endorsements.
