Somehow, somebody somewhere put me on a list to get emails from the Democrats. They are a joy. Consider this one I got today from something called "People for Cherry":
Today, a group of municipal officials became the latest to join "A Whole Lot of People Supporting John Cherry."
"Local elected officials know that we need to make changes in how we operate here in Michigan," Traverse City Mayor Michael Estes said. "Cherry is the most appropriate individual to institute those changes and make them work.
"As a retired teacher, I have been impressed by John Cherry's focus on improving education," said Berkley Mayor Marilyn Stephan. "He has made a difference by helping to increase our number of college graduates."
I love the comment that "we need to make changes in how we operate here in Michigan" and that Cherry is "the most appropriate individual to institute those changes and make them work."
What? You're kidding, right?
Exactly what has our bold Lt. Guv been doing for the past seven years? Oh yeah -- NOTHING! And what changes need to be made? Not specified.
And why haven't these necessary changes been made over the last seven years? Good question.
These empty endorsements are so meaningless they're laughable. Unspecified changes. Increasing numbers of college graduates who promptly leave the state. Higher taxes, bigger deficits, dumber policies.
Remember the days when, if you called something "cherry" it was cool?
