Today's evolving cornucopia of news and views from across the wide, wide internet ...

ANTI-UNION GROUPS IN HIGHLY-FUNDED EFFORT TO GET TEACHERS TO FREELOAD AND "OPT-OUT" OF UNIONS THAT PROTECT THEM
Eclectablog has an excellent report on the Koch-funded effort to destroy the MEA by lying and misleading teachers about their union, and its value to them.
I just wanted to make sure we're all clear what their intentions here are... The Mackinac Center's effort, put simply, is to destroy the political power of the MEA. Period.

Rick Snyder...still can't lead on the most important issue for Michiganders, even with his own party in full control of state government. That's a pretty amazing feat.

TEA PARTY SUPPORT OF SNYDER-CALLEY NOT A GIVEN, DEFEATED ACTIVIST WES NAKAGIRI SAYS
Wes Nakagiri, whose tea party bid to unseat Lt. Gov. Brian Calley was soundly defeated at Saturday's Republican convention, said today he hasn't decided whether he will cast a ballot for Gov. Rick Snyder in November and isn't sure how many of his supporters will do so.

Gee, that would be a real shame.

As the fall campaign season begins, Peters' new ad introduces him to the masses who, until now, haven't paid much attention to the candidates.

BURGER KING IN TALKS TO BUY TIM HORTONS AND MOVE TO CANADA
Except the company will continue to make most of its profits in the United States. It just isn't interested in paying taxes in the United States. Because, you see, corporations are people and ... uh ... and ???? Of course, if you or I tried this scam the IRS would be seizing our property and maybe sending us to the Graybar Hilton.

WALKER WANTED FUNDS FUNNELED TO WISCONSIN CLUB FOR GROWTH
That's the allegation and, sadly, that would be really illegal. Terri Lynn Land, take notes...

Yah, we seem fixated on Scott Walker today. But this post from the Daily Kos bears a startling resemblance to an earlier story on how Michigan's economy is lagging well behind that of Minnesota ... for many of the same reasons.
