Lieutenant governor pals around with avowed bigot to stump for terrible idea

A part-time Legislature would be a terrible idea for Michigan. It's a lazy solution to the wrong problem, asserting that the solution to terrible, incompetently written legislation is squeezing the amount of time that terrible, incompetent people can write it rather than making it more likely that our laws are written by people who aren't terrible and incompetent. Among the most terrible and incompetent since the advent of term limits, perhaps in fact the most terrible and incompetent of them all was Goat Killer, who gets his name from the fact that he left town to kill animals rather than fulfil his single real constitutional obligation and vote on a state budget and became angry when his absence was noted as "unexcused." So terrible and incompetent a legislator was he that any idea that he gets behind should be assumed to be terrible and incompetent until exhaustively proven otherwise.

But, he's got help in boosting the terrible, awful idea that is a part-time Legislature ... the lieutenant governor.

CASCADE TOWNSHIP, MI – Lt. Gov. Brian Calley and Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema are teaming up to promote a part-time Michigan Legislature.

Calley is expected to join Agema, a former state lawmaker from Grandville, from 3-5 p.m. Saturday, May 17, at Brann’s Steakhouse & Grille, 5510 28th St. SE. Agema’s trying to spark the campaign as it tries to collect enough signatures to get a proposal on the statewide ballot.

Goat Killer is less known for killing goats while skipping the most important vote he was asked to take his entire career in the House and best known for being a public asshole to homosexuals and Muslims. He's nationally famous for that, in fact, so much so that the entire leadership said that it hated him and that he brought shame upon them all and their party but were incapable to get rid of him because they didn't want to cause a giant schism in the party by their bylaws and were left to say he should resign. He naturally didn't, and it exposed the party's leadership as impotent in pursuing the party's best interests, and it means the party is made up of various wife stalkers, tax felons and bigots, but no one really cares about those details ... and here is the lieutenant governor publicly making nice with the bigot in pursuit of a truly terrible idea.

The End.
