I wrote about messaging yesterday.
There was no better messenger than this man. Someone who spoke his convictions without fear of what the "other side" thought, and in the end, captured the hearts of those others, minus only a few who were so hateful, and make up the Democrat party elite today.
If anyone wishes to know how even using 'truthful' statements, an agenda through media can be moved forward, it is shown today in Traverse City's paper of record. I fully expect an upcoming editorial decrying such intolerance by elected officials,and perhaps even further, a call for a countywide ordinance not unlike the Traverse City ordinance recently passed.

Titled Commissioner: Pedophilia linked to Homosexuality - Comments made during official business visit, the article relates my calling "homosexuality a perversion" during a visit to the health department orientation. The visit was in the offices of Fred Keeslar, the health department director. The visit which had in attendance myself, Fred, and one other employee. A visit in which a number of things were discussed, including services we provide, the possibility of growth, and some data that demonstrated where we are (as a county) year to year in communicable diseases.
One of those diseases discussed was HIV.

Lets talk about wolves pretending to be sheep..
If Santa Claus dressed himself as Batman would he be Batman? He may fool some, but his bulbous reality would reveal at the very least he wouldn't very likely LOOK the part. And unless some of that magic Santa dust can perform some miraculous effect, a fat man doing the dark knight's work might end in disaster. Besides, apart from a "girth" issue, there would also be the small problem of his entourage, be they smelly little elves, reindeer, or a bunch of little kids (who are smarter than the average bad guy) following him around and KNOW that its really Santa Claus, that would blow the fat man's cover.
Well.. the entourage is REALLY the secret in the sauce for the Truth Squad, a new "service" that suggests it is there to help voters determine who is taking creative license in their political advertising.
Let talk about it.. below the fold.

In responding to an article, "Michigan Republicans must look towards the future to win" by Dennis Lennox, posted 4/22/09, I took the opportunity to opine, sharing my own convictions with my fellow Republicans about the overall subject: Using Conservative Unity to lead the party out of the 'wilderness' that's born of divisive politics, demographic pandering, and (I will add here) a perception that we should somehow be ashamed of our heritage as conservatives.
It was recommended to me that it was worthy of its own post, so here it is as written. Let us UNITE to win elections. Right and Truth do not 'evolve', rather, handed down from antiquity.
CLARIFICATION: Please note that any appearance of 'class-warfare' points are intended to be a criticism of some politicians on the Left. I do not subscribe to class-warfare arguments in the slightest, but I think such arguments the Left makes against their opponents is much more applicable to themselves; it's how they think.
