Michigan Mishegas/Raising Arizona

The Republican party is holding presidential primaries in Michigan and Arizona today.

“Mishegas” is a Yiddish term meaning “craziness.”  That certainly describes what’s going on in Michigan.

“Raising Arizona” was a 1987 film by the Coen Brothers.  This primary certainly could  have been scripted by the Coen Brothers.

No matter the results, tomorrow is going to be interesting.

  1. Senator Olympia Snowe, Republican of Maine, Will Not Seek Re-election

    WASHINGTON – In a stunning upheaval in the race to control the Senate, Senator Olympia Snowe, a three-term Republican from Maine, said Tuesday she would not run for re-election, citing excessive partisanship in the Senate.

    “After 33 years in the Congress this was not an easy decision,” said Ms. Snowe in a prepared statement. “My husband and I are in good health. We have laid an exceptionally strong foundation for the campaign, and I have no doubt I would have won re-election. It has been an indescribable honor and immeasurable privilege to serve the people of Maine, first in both houses of Maine’s legislature and later in both houses of Congress. To this day, I remain deeply passionate about public service, and I cherish the opportunity I have been given for nearly four decades to help improve the lives of my fellow Mainers.”
    Ms. Snowe, a moderate who cast key votes in bills that were dear to Democrats including the health care legislation and the stimulus bill, was facing a Tea Party-backed challenger, but one who had failed to gain much traction in a state where Ms. Snowe remained popular and well known.

  2. Mishegas sounds like a side dish for Huevos Rancheros.

    I hope somebody gets scrambled tonight!
