Mitt Romney won the Michigan primary tonight proving exactly why Michigan is the most dysfunctional state in the union. If Michigan were a person, they'd be put on "suicide watch."
Detroit has lost fully 50% of their population. Unemployment is the highest in the nation. Corruption rivals levels found in third world countries. And Michigan routinely enacts legislation that would drive any business from the state while raising taxes to certifiably insane levels.
And Mitt Romney, after completely changing his core values for Iowa and then changing them again for New Hampshire, put on an entirely new persona for Michigan, but this time it worked.
Romney became "Young Doctor Kildare." Boyish, Handsome. And dispensing the latest "miracle cures."
They say a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down, but Young Doctor Romney simply left out the medicine entirely, feeding heaping spoonfuls of sugar to the voters of Michigan. He promised a chicken in every pot and a new car factory in every town.
Just swallow Romney's magic elixir and you'll be young, good looking and irresistible to the opposite sex.
Unfortunately the only person that got well was Mitt Romney. And tomorrow he'll leave the state, shed his white Doctor's coat and probably try to become a "Southern Baptist Preacher," Brother Mitt, for the voters in South Carolina.
His promises of a miracle cure for Michigan will be forgotten.
But Young Doctor Romney wasn't the only person dispensing sugar tonight. There was enough syrup at the debate in Nevada tonight to induce a diabetic coma.
If tonight's long heralded Nevada Debate was a championship boxing event, we would have to assume Barack Obama threw the fight.
It's one thing to call a truce in the race war; it's quite another to concede defeat and surrender the troops.
Hillary looked Presidential. Obama came off like a star struck teenager.
There was more syrup in the debate than at your neighborhood House of Pancakes. Whenever Barack wasn't pouring syrup on Hillary, Hillary was copying the Young Doctor Romney prescription and pouring syrup all over Nevada.
Hillary told the people of Nevada exactly what they wanted to hear. Of course Nevada has all the wealth and prosperity that Michigan lacks. And Hillary was well prepared and had the facts and issues at her fingertips. But promises flowed freely off her lips, just like syrup.
At least I felt like she was a real doctor, capable of dispensing real medicine if the situation had warranted it.
