croghan27,Catch the whiff of a bad smell coming from Lansing? That's the stink of failed leadership hanging over Mike Bishop, the Senate Majority Leader who continues advocating for angry mobs instead of real solutions to Michigan's budget crisis.Bishop said he welcomes "an angry mob" turning against the governor's budget proposal, and more than 1,000 of you have written demanding that Bishop quit advocating violence and mob rule.Join us in standing up for lively, robust, free expression of all points of view, but against suggestions that angry mobs are acceptable. Write Senator Bishop today and make your voice heard,and forward this email to your friends.Let Senator Bishop know that enough is enough.Sincerely,David HoltzExecutive DirectorProgress MichiganP.S.Maybe Senator Bishop should take his cues from some conservatives who are balking at extreme tactics advocated by DC-based, lobbyist-led front groups as right-wing protests grow out of control Here's a sampling...-Sen. McCain scolded the recent angry disruptions at town halls on his twitter feed when he said "we should allow everyone to express their views without disruption."http://twitter.com/SenJohnMcCain/status/3145665284Even after urging conservative activists to help "break" President Obama last month, GOP Sen. DeMint has backed away from the town hall protests, calling the orchestrated disruptions "unacceptable" and saying "we have to show our respect."http://www.mcclatchydc.com/homepage/story/73304.htmlEven Sarah Palin tried to warn protesters not to get "sidetracked" by aggressive tactics, despite her provocative claims that reform is evil and would lead to death panels. As TPM puts it: "She is calling for civility in the manner of the debate, so as to focus effectively on how evil and disturbing her opponents are."http://tpmdc.talkingpointsmemo.com/2009 ... hp?ref=fpbGOP Rep. Jack Kingston separated himself from Sarah Palin's debunked "death panel" claim by saying "it's a scare tactic" and "there are no death panels."http://thinkprogress.org/2009/08/09/kingston-palin/-After fanning the flames for angry crowds last week, Glenn Beck issued a warning to his viewers, saying that one lunatic like "Timothy McVeigh could ruin everything."http://thinkprogress.org/2009/08/04/beck-mcveigh/-GOP Rep. Bob Inglis told town hall protesters to turn off Glenn Beck.http://www.mediabistro.com/tvnewser/pol ... 123878.aspÂ© 2009 ProgressMichigan.org.

The latest nutcase theory was that Obama was actually born in Canada (most likely Vancouver). 'Bout time the USians ditched their "natural born US citizen" stuff, nowadays when people move around so much. Why the hell should it matter?
