Tag: Colleen O'Brien (loss)
By Kevin Rex Heine, Section News
Most everyone reading this site recalls, likely with disgust, the 2008 Detroit Lions season, in which the team originally known as the Portsmouth Spartans became only the second team in the post-merger NFL to rack up nothing but losses during an entire regular season. Team president and CEO Matt Millen was fired on September 24 (during the bye week), after eight years of management in which the team accumulated a league-worst record of 31 wins and 84 losses. Head coach Rod Marinelli and most of his assistants were fired the day after the season ended, and even though I don't think that was really necessary, as a military veteran I get that the guy in charge has to answer for such a grave failure, regardless of his personal culpability.
And yet, for the second time in my personal involvement with the Michigan Republican Party, we have a state party chairman trying to leverage a disappointing Election Day performance into somehow retaining his seat, though to be fair the 2012 defeat is perhaps best characterized as only slightly less devastating than the two shellackings we suffered through under Saul Anuzis. However, unlike 2007, when Saulius ran effectively unopposed for state chair, Mr. Robert I. Schostak does indeed face a serious challenger to his continued tenure as MIGOP Chairman. Though Chairman B. S. touts his election year successes as reason to retain him in his position, methinks this is so much . . . well . . . blown smoke.
