In Van Buren County, Michigan, Antwerp Township Supervisor Daniel Ruzick has been accused of “embezzlement” and similar wrongdoing. Harold “Butch” Cirino began making these accusations after the Township Board, chaired by Ruzick, replaced Cirino as Antwerp Township’s Building Inspector.

Cirino then launched a campaign against Ruzick to win the elected position, and its salary and benefits.

In the August 7, 2012 primary election, voters decide between Ruzick and Cirino for Township Supervisor.


Road Romney

Given Mitt Romney’s history with day trips, the campaign’s current promotion seems bizarre. The 29 June 2007 Boston Globe summarized the tale of an unfortunate 1983 cartop ride of Romney’s Irish Setter, Seamus:

…hours into the ride, Seamus apparently suffered diarrhea, which ran down the back window of the car. Romney’s sons, all under 14, howled in disgust. Romney pulled off the road into a service station. There, he borrowed a hose, washed down Seamus and the car, and they drove on to Ontario.

That may not sound like the sort of road trip you would enjoy — but now you have a chance to find out!


Dumb Critics

Right leaning bloggers are in a frantic huff over the Newsweek cover story for 23 Jan 2012, entitled “Why are Obama’s Critics So Dumb?”

Rather, most are in a huff over one word on the cover: “dumb.” That’s dumb.

And, they’re wailing about it across social media — an “Occupy Dumbness” movement — thus increasing sales and traffic for Newsweek, which they claim to hate with a vengeance. That’s incredibly dumb.

It’s even more dumb than it sounds — because most of them obviously didn’t read the article.
