Trolling the Links

Some stuff from The Internets that is catching my eye --

McCONNELL PROMISES SHUTDOWN WARS IN A GOP MAJORITY
If ever America had a reason to elect a Democratic controlled Senate, here it is. The Kentucky Tortoise is promising to use "must-pass" spending bills as bargaining chips, even to the point of frequent government shutdowns.

MICHIGAN GAY RIGHTS PUSH SPURS OUT OF STATE CONTRIBUTIONS, PUSHBACK FROM SOCIAL CONSERVATIVES
Looks like some pro-equality rich guys are trying to "encourage" Speaker Jase Bolger with some very large campaign contributions. That's not making the anti-gay caucus of the GOP very happy. And props to Bolger mouthpiece Ari Adler for the line of the day, saying of anti-equality former Michigan legislator (and former resident) Jack Hoogendyk "his lack of accomplishments while he was in office speak for themselves."

OPEN CARRY ADVOCATES MARCH IN SOUTH DALLAS
Normally, an NRA wet dream. But (horrors) THESE marchers are African Americans, specifically Black Panthers and the Huey P. Newton Gun Club, protesting police violence. OMG!

MICHIGAN PUBLIC RADIO: WILL WE SEE CANDIDATE DEBATES THIS FALL?
Few or none, I predict. When you have limitless cash it is far more effective to flood the airwaves with your spin knowing that most people won't bother to check to see if you are lying. A lie, told often enough, becomes "truth."
