Will we ever have to worry about the DeVos's again?
I just moved here in early August. DeVos scared the crap out of me because I saw in him a clone of all of the Texas Republicans I remember from my years there who have made that state a living hell for working people. Of course, Betsey thinks that Michigan workers are overpaid and over-unionized. And her brother is a war profiteer. So I was glad to see DeVos lose and lose bad. Does this mean that we don't ever again have to worry about this spoiled brat and his brainless trophy wife sticking their mitts into Michigan politics again?

5. Yes, but as someone pointed out to me today,
Edited on Tue Nov-14-06 02:44 PM by jeanarrett
who else would want the devosforpresident domain name? They apparently buy these up so some crackpot doesn't start a goofy website about them or so they don't have to pay big bucks for it in the future if they ever want it and someone else has it.

2. Only when a naive relative buys a garageful of soap
and tries to sell some of it to family and friends.

3. Only every two years for the rest of our lives, as the DeVos family
continues to pour millions of dollars into right wing causes and campaigns here in Michigan, and across America.

4. Betsy is always someone to be concerned about
I doubt Dick will run for president any time soon, but he's not an old man yet. If the regular GOP (Brooks Patterson, David Gorcyca, etc.) take back the Michigan party, he and his wife are done running for any office. If the religious right from West Michigan and northern Macomb county hang on to control, they'll be back.

6. Betsy is not brainless...
she is the driving force behind the empty suit that is Dick DeVos.

That family has enough money to be able to foul Michigan's political scene for years to come.

7. Repubs saw the MI gov race as one of their few pick up opportunities
and it wasn't even close. She beat him by 18% I believe. I think it will be hard for Repubs to get into that guy again.

8. Betsy "The Bitch From Hell" DeVos is like a cockroach.....
A can of Raid wouldn't kill the nasty little vermin. She'll DEFINITELY be back...maybe not in the form of her dolt of a husband, but she'll be spreading her trademark GOP hate and intolerance for a long time to come, both on a state and national level.

I loved it when she cried during the Dick's concession speech. I thought that any day Betsy DeVos cries is a glorious day for Michigan.
