neonvincent: For general posts about politics not covered by other icons (Uncle V wants you)
The first comment is the last one I left on Elaine Meinel Supkis' blog. She managed to get on my last nerve and that was before she jumped on the Trump bandwagon. The final comment might look familiar, as I recycled it in Trump threatens to 'Lock Her Up!'

Comments I left at the blogs of Elaine Meinel Supkis, James H. Kunstler, John M. Greer, and P. M. Carpenter behind the cut. )

I only have one from last month, an exchange in comments to my Booman Tribune Weather Channel diary.

"[S]uch measures will not affect the thinking of a single Trump voter and will cause the jackasses to bray and dig their hoofs in even further."

Remember, we Democrats are the donkeys and the Republicans are the elephants. That sentence should have read 'the elephants will trumpet and dig their feet in deeper.'

Important voting information for UW-Madison students
May 10, 2012

Dean of Students Lori Berquam emailed the following information to UW-Madison students Thursday, May 10 in an effort to help students vote in the June 5 recall election:

Dear Students,

As you are aware, Wisconsin's recall election will be held on Tuesday, June 5.

As always, I strongly encourage you to be educated about the candidates and cast a ballot. Recent changes in voting laws, combined with the end of the semester, may require you to plan ahead.
Thank you, Dean Berquam. I have only one thing to add. May the UW's students do their part as important players in the following movie.

Romney wins Michigan and Washtenaw County but splits delegates with Santorum
Washtenaw County Elections 2010 Examiner
For the order of finish of the top four Republican candidates, their vote percentages, and the splitting of the delegates between the top two candidates, Washtenaw County mirrored the results of the state of Michigan as a whole. On the other hand, the turnout, percentage of the vote cast in the Democratic primary, and order of the lower ranked candidates on the Republican ballot differed significantly from the rest of the state and displayed Washtenaw County's distinctive take on politics. Elsewhere in the state, Democrats crossing over to vote in the Republican primary may have had an effect on the result in at least one Congressional district.
For the rest of the article, surf over to Examiner.com. My blog here isn't monetized, but Examiner.com is.

As for anything I left out of the article, note that I assign part of the responsibility for Santorum's splitting the delegates between the Republicans in the Michigan legislature, who came up with the redistricting plan that moved Calhoun County out of the 7th District and replaced it with Monroe County. That worked to protect my former representative Tim Walberg from a challenge by my other former representative Mark Schauer, but it also made the district more friendly to Santorum. Without that slick move, Romney would have won that district and its two delegates. The rest I give to Democrats crossing over to vote in the Republican primary, although the clearest example involves Democrats voting for Ron Paul, not for Rick Santorum. Sorry, Markos Moulitsas of Daily Kos, Operation Hilarity wasn't as effective as you thought it was, despite your bragging. Even so, the video is hilarious.



In other news, one of my New Year's resolutions was to resume writing for Examiner.com. As you can see, I finally got around to it.

Forgot these posts from November in yesterday's post. With the loss of Herman "Plan 999 from Outer Space" Cain, they're a bit dated, but otherwise still topical until next Tuesday's Iowa caucuses.

If the GOP primary were a CEO search

Rick Perry blowing his answer to the Jeopardy theme

Those last four have been surprisingly popular. The day after every Republican candidate debate, these posts jump up into the day's top ten most viewed entries. Praise be to search engines!

Still on the agenda--global and national environmental issues, local (Michigan and Metro Detroit) sustainability issues, and Tea Party screw-ups.

Nate Silver displays Newt Gingrich's unimpeachable conservative credential

It's beginning to look a lot like Gingrich

You're a mean one, Newt Gingrinch

I know I've posted the above two links before. Hey, I'm an environmentalist. I recycle.

Perry fails to make VA GOP primary ballot

Now Gingrich misses the Virginia ballot

More political links tomorrow, most likely on either local issues or how Tea Partiers are screwing up sustainability.  Actually, there's a big overlap between those two categories; just Google Janice Daniels of Troy to see what I mean.

Now, off to play Star Wars: The Old Republic with my wife.

Sorry, Governor, the correct answer was "What is the Department of Energy?"

These three posts have been very popular, as I had a bit fewer than 200 hits yesterday and more than 200 hits so far today, and it's not even noon.

Here are the previews.

And here's the post about the debate itself.

Video clips from last night's Republican debate

My summary judgment about the debate was that Perry lost by shooting himself in the foot. Cain should be grateful for that. The sharks were circling him before the debate. Now they smell someone else's blood.
