State House candidate compares Detroit civic leaders to wayward children

by: Eric B.

Tue Jul 01, 2014 at 09:00:42 AM EDT

Back when the Tea Party got started, Wendy Lynn Day was in on the ground floor. She was the spokesperson for the anti-Obamacare ballot drive, and when they failed to get the required number of signatures she called it a victory. Then, she moved on to telling the people in Dan Scripps' old district that the public trust doctrine is a communist land grab. Eventually, she turned to the last bastion for people who want to be in the limelight but have no business being in it. No, not Reality Tee Vee. She's running for the state House.

This morning, in response to a mailer being circulated on her behalf by the Americans for Prosperity (same people who used a cancer patient to lie to the people of Michigan and then used that cancer patient as a human shield), she "clarified" her position on the Detroit grand bargain. Last paragraph.

Like the parents of a child who has lost his way, we must train the government of Detroit to behave responsibly; any money must have strings attached that require transparency, accountability, and the end of corruption. We must insist on structural change and oversight with an eye to building a city that can be trusted to provide the core functions of government, and the freedom to thrive.

Emph. mine. It's this morning's tribute to the going notion that the people of Detroit aren't capable of governing themselves with a wink-wink-nod-nod "and we all know why that's the case" notion popular in certain circles.

Every good teabilly knows
that "those people" are 100% responsible for wasting all the resources and tax money showered on Detroit by the state over the decades. And unions. Also.

You don't have to be a dog anymore to hear the Republicans' dog-whistles

A government that robs Peter to pay Paul can always count on the support of Paul.
