From the Macomb Chainsaw Massacre to Right to Work

by: Eric B.

Mon Nov 19, 2012 at 14:22:16 PM EST

Remember 2010, when Jack Brandenberg, Leon Drolet, and Kim Meltzer waged a Macomb County live act version of the War of the Five Kings? That was the first time we heard the name Brian Pennebacker. He was one of the guys who pointed at Drolet and coughed out, "Gay," a couple of times. He's back, pimping for Right to Work.

Brian Pannebecker of Shelby Township, a spokesman for Freedom To Work, said Republicans who drag their feet on this issue, with a December closure of the 2011-12 legislative session on the horizon, will pay a political price.

“This is going to be a very fast-moving story,” said Pannebecker, an aide to GOP Sen. Jack Brandenburg of Harrison Township, an outspoken right to work advocate.

In short, Republicans who don't support the Lannisters will find their castles burned out and given to Tommy Carcetti, former mayor of Baltimore and governor of Maryland. Be warned, bitches.

Why is it that these people always, always, always have to resort to threats to get their way? Would it kill them to make a case based on the facts?

I said it in the other thread, but let the tea party continue to push the state and national party over the cliff.  They don't even know.  Let them think this is Mississippi and see what happens.  Let them deliver every state-wide office in 2014 back to the Democrats with this disaster they are about to unleash.  Talk about continually misjudging the political landscape of this place.  Good lord.
