I have a challenge for Michigan conservatives – nominate conservative firebrand Justin Amash for U.S. Senate.
The home for Michigan's best political commentary
There has been a flurry of media activity around Karl Rove and his rich Super PAC, American Crossroads, for its ‘attack’ ads targeting actress Ashley Judd. The ads are in reaction to Ms. Judd’s exploration of a run against Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Kentucky. The Hill says the ads blast Judd “as a Hollywood … Continue Reading →

I’ve been off the grid for a couple of days dealing with real life, but I saw the latest conservative faux outrage over a poster the Obama campaign was offering that featured a stylized flag logo.
