Yesterday Mississippi, today Detroit and Emmet County

Anyone remember, like, five minutes ago when conservatives nationwide were outraged to learn that Thad Cochran's campaign strategy was to appeal to Democratic voters crossing over and casting a ballot for.  The outrage, she's selective.

Two emails have arrived in Ye Olde Inbox the last couple of days, including one beseeching Republican voters in Wayne County to cross over and vote for Bill Wild. I can't get it uploaded so's you can take a look-see at it. It contains a column written by Nolan Finley and a letter by a Tom Yack who puts "conservative" in bold and/or ALL CAPS an awful lot.

Meanwhile, from a different e-mail from Emmet County.

Emmet County Democrats have been receiving phone calls asking them to vote for Frank Foster in the Primary Election to help defeat "far right" Tea Party candidate Lee Chatfield. I was told that Democrats from downstate are making these calls. However, we can not be sure they are really Democrats making this request. The members of the Emmet County Democratic Party are NOT making these calls. We believe these are coming from paid Foster Campaign workers!

Big fun!

Ellis too?

The circus continues in what has been called "the nastiest primary" of the year by DC news outlets.

In a page straight out of the Thad Cochran playbook, mailers sent to Democrats at the last minute from Brian Ellis, the primary challenger for Justin Amash, are urging Democrats to vote for Ellis in the Republican primary Tuesday because he will be "reasonable," unlike Amash.

"You can remove Justin Amash from Office by voting in the Republican Primary," the mailer touts...

Mr. Ellis would face a write in campaign from Amash before he went anywhere, and with Amash's lead of nearly 25%, he should be ok.

Someone is fighting back against Wild
Earlier today, Mrs. Dudgeon got a robo-call (sponsor not identified) asking her not to vote for "Republican Bill Wild."

As they say on Hockey Night in Canada, "it's getting chippy out there."

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