Michigan GOP: Stupid is as Stupid Does

There he goes again — Gov. Snyder, Michigan’s Great Equivocator, said that he’s “not going to get in the middle of all that” when asked whether former state lawmaker Rep. Dave Agema should resign from his post as Michigan’s representative to the Republican National Committee in the wake of his bigoted homophobic Facebook page post: “Everyone Should Know These Statistics on Homosexuals”. Republican Secretary of State Ruth Johnson similarly declined to offer an opinion and said it’s a decision for Agema to make for himself.

The essay Agema posted was written by Frank Joseph, M.D. who relied on “statistics” of Dr. Edward R. Fields, a non-practicing chiropractor a KKK-affiliated white supremacist, anti-semitic loon-case. The highly offensive piece was clearly not of scientific origin and should be a clarion call for GOP leaders to condemn such bigotry, especially as the party struggles to re-brand itself. But, in Michigan they cower instead.

Not that Democracy Tree is in the business of giving advice to Republicans, but this kind of thing is exactly what Gov. Bobby Jindal meant when he said “we have to stop being the stupid party”.

Stupid is as stupid does…Gov. Snyder.
