Another Hail Mary

It appears that Mike Bishop is picking up where his buddy from
Oakland County, Mike Bouchard, left off with the Hail Mary passes.
In an 11th hour and last desperation gasp to jump start his sagging
campaign for governor, Bouchard reversed field and went full bore on
the Right to Work issue. It failed to be right or work.
Now comes GOP Attorney General candidate Mike Bishop with his rather
transparent attempt to squeeze some badly needed political juice out of
the Arizona immigration mess. This comes on the eve of the state GOP
convention where another A.G. contender Bill Schuette says he's fixin'
to wup Mr. Bishop.
Bishop, dropping into the back field, ala Bouchard, and on behalf of
the senate GOP caucus, has filed a brief to join the Arizona law suit
against the Obama administration as it attempts to nip this law in the
Can you say pandering?
Mr. Bishop can't and won't as he sees this as totally appropriate
since Michigan has borders with a foreign country. Never mind that not
one soul in this state has make any noises about Michigan facing the
same kind of "illegal" problems similar to Arizona. But then don't let
the facts get in the way of a good pander.
Bishop's political brain trust saw an opportunity and seized it.
As for it's impact on Bishop's candidacy, we'll know the outcome of
that this weekend.
Anyway it got him some free media attention and underscored his
ultra-conservative credentials especially with the Tap Party crowd and
it just might work…if some of those disgruntled Arizona residents show
up at the Breslin Center this weekend to vote for their guy Mike.

Mike Bishop is pure grease... there's nothing that he won't do to keep his nose in the public trough. Along with Granholm, the faster we get rid of him, the better off we'll be. Both are responsible for the sad state of affairs in Michigan.
