Whether you live up north or down state in Michigan, one of the most interesting aspects of the 2014 election that barely anyone's talking about is the split in the Republican big tent. And by split I mean yawning Hell's Canyon-deep chasm (Hell's Canyon is on the Idaho-Oregon border. I mention Idaho for a reason).
In the 107th state district, DeVos yes man Frank Foster was defeated by a young religious fundamentalist school teacher named Lee Chatfield in the August primary. Chatfield is openly hostile to gay people, Muslims, Obamacare and Common Core, which is programming our children to be gay Muslim Obamacare users if you follow the standard tea party rantings. Down state in the 98th district Gary Glenn beat Karl Ieuter in a very close race. Gary Glenn is openly hostile to gay people, Muslims, Obamacare and Common Core because that will program our children to be gay Muslim Obamacare users. Ask anyone in the tea party, they'll tell you it's true.
