Dear Lansing: Stop Screwing Each Other and Fix the Damn Roads

Michigan is a mess. Everybody's talking about Tea Party Republican State Representatives Cindy Gamrat, Todd Courser and their freaky-deaky love affair.

First, it was the fake gay sex email scandal. Then, they fired a staffer for having actual morals. Then, it was claims of blackmail. Now, it's long rants on Facebook about how Todd Courser thinks he represents Jesus. If this were fiction, nobody would believe it!

And now, the State House Speaker Kevin Cotter (R) is looking for ways to screw the political careers of State Reps Courser and Gamrat.

Here's the one thing everybody's missing: The roads still suck!

The Republicans in Lansing have a virtual supermajority - they could get this done tomorrow.

So, in the interest of having a really, really, reaaallly short blog here, I'm just going to put this out there:

If Lansing Republicans spent as much time screwing each other as they did working on the roads bill, I wouldn't have to replace the shocks on my Ford Focus this week.

Oh, and, while I've got you here, legislative Republicans: If you're going to fix the roads, make sure to do it in a way that doesn't screw us residents, too, ok?

A nice touch might be raising the diesel tax instead of the gas tax and then passing State Rep. Jim Townsend's graduated income tax bill. Or maybe by finding creative ways to reduce the prison population like, I dunno, legalizing marijuana, since the State of Michigan spends more than $2 billion per year on our prisons.

I'm just sayin'.
