  •  Pls. cont.-MI-Fed "Blue" + State lev. "Red"=... (7+ / 0-)

    Disaster for the people of states, like MI, that are in this political nightmare, thanks to some combination of GOPer gerrymandering, and a state/ local Dem Party that just can't seem to fight the encroachment of the GOPers.

    The serial and escalating outrages of the tea-partyish MI GOP dominated state legislature is something that IMHO shows the importance of local politics.

    Focusing solely and/or primarily on federal level elections and politicians can have consequences that adversely impact residents of states like MI on a daily basis.  I didn't think that MI would ever be dominated by a power-drunken super-conservative republican legislature and enabling allegedly "moderate" GOPer Gov. who come up with new outrages on a daily basis... Yet--here we are.
