… and it actually makes quite a bit of sense:
With a history of meddling in our primaries, why don’t we try and return the favor. Next Tuesday, January 15th, Michigan will hold its primary. Michigan Democrats should vote for Mitt Romney, because if Mitt wins, Democrats win. How so?
For Michigan Democrats, the Democratic primary is meaningless since the DNC stripped the state of all its delegates (at least temporarily) for violating party rules. Hillary Clinton is alone on the ballot.
But on the GOP side, this primary will be fiercely contested. John McCain is currently enjoying the afterglow of media love since his New Hamsphire victory, while Iowa winner Mike Huckabee is poised to do well in South Carolina.
Meanwhile, poor Mitt Romney, who’s suffered back-to-back losses in the last week, desperately needs to win Michigan in order to keep his campaign afloat. Bottom line, if Romney loses Michigan, he’s out. If he wins, he stays in.
And we want Romney in, because the more Republican candidates we have fighting it out, trashing each other with negative ads and spending tons of money, the better it is for us. We want Mitt to stay in the race, and to do that, we need him to win in Michigan.
I’ve been kind of annoyed with the big flip of the bird the DNC gave Michigan because we had the audacity to actually, you know, have some impact on the next presidential election. Which, when you consider the condition of our economy, isn’t an unreasonable desire in my mind. I’ve never participated in a primary before and I’m officially registered as an Independent, but I might just be willing to wade into Republican territory this time out seeing as there’s not much point in participating in the Democratic side even if I were so inclined. And it’s been awhile since I’ve gotten into any mischief.
