Why they've gone exactly where I've said the creative Conservative Right would go. They're dominating social media.
"The conservative candidates---Republicans and Tea Party members---definitely used Twitter more visibly and showed a more coherent set of messages and topics," assistant professor Eytan Adar said in the release. "They also followed each other much more closely. I think it's fair to say they were much more cohesive in a lot of ways and at the end of the day that makes for a stronger campaign."

There ya have it... let the maladroit Progressive Left drones have their preprinted signs, tribal drumming, smelly wannabe hippie kids and bussed in goonion slug protests.
Frankly, it is all they've really got to work with.

It hit me this morning while I was brushing my teeth. I got swept away with the water running, standing there for maybe ten minutes, enjoying the sound with a nagging feeling that there was something happening today that I was forgetting. Suddenly a light bulb flashed on over my head, joining every other hundred-watt bulb I'd left running in the house all night. (It was bright.)
When your kids head to school, when you turn on the local news, MSNBC or CNN you'll learn pretty quickly that today is a special day. Take a look at your calendar if you don't believe me. It's a big day. A high holy day, almost. The kind of day that certain special interest groups hope will help inspire you to help change the world, one energy efficient light bulb at a time.
When you get to the office and you see Jane trying to pull off a precarious balancing act, standing on a chair... in heels, trying to change that burned out bulb, give her a hand. This is HER day.
That's right, today, April 22, 2009 is Administrative Professionals Day, formerly known as Secretaries Day. So make sure that special lady (or man) in your life understands just how much you appreciate her. Sign the office card... heck, print her a dozen of them on heavy, non-recycled cardstock. Pitch in a couple bucks for an ice cream cake even if you have to crank the air conditioning to the max to keep it from melting. Tell her THANKS.
I don't have an administrative professional myself, but I've worked with some awesome folks in the past so I'm still going to do my part. Every other day of the year we look at the news from a Michigan perspective and that's great and that's important. But today is special.
Today we're going to look at the news and the events of the day with the administrative professional first in our minds, even those administrative professionals who may be victims of the Cherry-Granholm economy and the Democrats bungling of Michigan's climate. Michigan's job creation climate.
