So who will be the MI democrats sacrificial lamb in the Governors race?

The news reports are making it out to be such a surprise that somebody from Granholm's administration (cherry) is not going to run for governor!

Who would have ever imagined that?!?!??!?


I can see them going after a big name, but I don't think anybody who has any hopes for political future would risk going for the bid.

I suspect we will see somebody who isn't involved at all in politics run, or somebody who is about done with their political career, and they want to give it a shot.

Yesterday Frank Beckman was talking that the Oblama administration asked Cherry to step down because they don't think he can win.

Channel 2 is reporting that Joe Dumar is being asked to run for the position of Governor.

Yep, since he knows how to play b'ball, he must be qualified to run the state.

CC if you want the bid I know we can drum up enough votes. who knows maybe if you don't get the Governors spot you could be a Mayor? at least then you could turn D rot into the biggest offroad park in the U.S.

It would be the wheeling experience of a lifetime. Fight off wild dogs and wild humans while making your way around condemned buildings and over numerous piles of rubble. If you and your rig make it to the river alive we'll refund your money!

the dumbocrats are like lice in a burning wig. they cannot jump ship fast enough. the good thing is that all dumbocrats are immediately linked with an unpopular obama.

the dumbocrats trying to get dumars is for the simple strategy that if we put someone popular up for election the people will like it. they don't have a leg to stand on so they are going to try and use star power. dumars would be an idiot as he has a far better situation in basketball.

the best possible candidate is a nobody, someone who has no face that we know. how do you think grand mole got elected?

on a side note I would ask that everyone bring trash to bury the remains of D rot. that way we can start our new park. I'll bet Canada would do it for free just so they didn't have to look at it anymore.

Nah, doesn't he wheel a Bronco? What do you need besides guns, things to hunt with your guns and a 4x4 to get you where you need to go to hunt things with your guns? :D
