Three terrible people want to be Senate Majority Leader

by: Eric B.

Thu May 29, 2014 at 13:00:00 PM EDT


Three names have emerged as potential successors to Randy Richardville as Senate Majority Leader: Jack Brandenburg, Arlen Meekhoff and Pat Colbeck. Brandenburg won the Macomb Chainsaw Massacre with the help of a raging homophobe, Meekhoff was the jerk who sponsored the bill that opened up the spigots of money into Michigan politics and helped the DeVos clan nearly singlehandedly finance the Republican House and Senate campaigns earlier this year, and Pat Colbeck doesn't understand the U.S. Constitution or really anything.

When Randy Richardville was given the job in 2011, most people felt as if the state were spared the worst instincts of the Republican Party because he was something of a moderate. Then Trucker Randy and one of the other clowns in the Tea Party tried to blackmail him into moving Right to Work legislation by saying that if he didn't do it, they'd tell everyone that he was cheating on his wife ... thereby publicly giving away the piece of informationn they hoped to use to blackmail him. Then, Right to Work legislation moved anyway and Amway Guy jackstomped Richardville's objections.

That won't happen with these three, and the state's chances of having a Senate Majority Leader who isn't utterly loathsome the next four years basically rest with a miracle Democratic tsunami that turns the chamber blue or a meteorite striking the planet and killing us all. I'll give the odds of option two as greater than option one.

Oh my God (0.00 / 0)
Talk about rightwing extremists. The only thing that would make that race more extreme is if Joe Hune got into the race. Meekhoff also chaired the witch-hunt known as the Committee on Compliance and Accountability that went after teachers unions because they made rouge teachers follow the rules they agreed to. He claimed the committee would investigate other things, but it hasn't met since they grilled MEA members and threw softball questions at the rouge teachers and their lawyer  from the Mackinac Center.

Pat Colbeck will be lucky to be back in the Senate next session (4.00 / 1)
nonetheless as Majority Leader.  The delusions of grandeur are strong with that guy.  Here's to Dian Slavens kicking ass all around the 7th SD.
