A seat Democrats should lose: John Conyers, Michigan

Months ago, everyone believed that Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich would not run again. Many Democrats were elated by that because the incumbent is too old and incompetent to be in office. He is a very good example of what is wrong with Detroit and Michigan. He is partly responsible for the loss of business and industry in Michigan. He is a rotten apple in a bushel of Democrats. When he was so inept as to fail to file for reelection, there must have been a sigh of relief.

Now, on appeal, a judge has reinstated Conyers for inclusion on the state’s primary ballot. Well, here is hoping that his bungling is enough to make some people think twice before advancing him again. Awaken Michigan, to save yourselves from deficient representation.
