  1. Sneak Sneak Sneak

    Now comes the ballot initiative to re-write the Michigan Constituition.  

    Michigan voters are being asked to sign a petition, called the 'Reform Michigan Government Now' referendum - But it is partisan.  Few petition circulators even know what the petition is asking - the circulators are simply stating it "cuts costs"  and representing the multi-page doc as that.

    And the instigators of the petition will not reveal themselves. 

    Well the Detroit News writes has something to say about this http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080622/OPINION03/806220309/1271/OPINION01

    The last line sums it well   "But this drive to enshrine a partisan advantage in the Constitution is the slimiest I've seen. "

    This is what Republicans must deal with.
