GOP nominee jokes about plot to kidnap Mich. governor

Source: NBC via AOL

Tudor Dixon, Michigan’s GOP nominee for governor, joked about a 2020 kidnapping plot against rival Gov. Gretchen Whitmer during a pair of campaign events Friday, sparking swift denunciations from Democrats.

“The sad thing is that Gretchen will tie your hands, put a gun to your head and ask if you are ready to talk. For someone so worried about getting kidnapped, Gretchen Whitmer sure is good at taking business hostage and holding it for ransom,” Dixon said at one event.

Later that day, in describing a recent appearance by Whitmer, Dixon said, “The look on her face was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, this is happening. I’d rather be kidnapped by the FBI.”

What the ever loving hell?

Well, if Agent Orange can publicly mock a handicapped man, I guess joking about a felony is okay too.

15. one way is to search, for eg, the school, team name, and 'radio affiliates' or sometimes they

use other terms - broadcast partners, radio stations, etc. they usually have a list on the team website. sometimes they're very helpful and link to the stations. otherwise have to search for the stations

the original search was limited largely to football teams and limbaugh stations so b-ball might turn up more stations and there will be other rw stations that don't headline limbaugh but follow the same republican trumping limbaugh script - they are all on the same page, although limbaugh croaking has disrupted that central messaging and the 'quality' of it.

18. talk radio is why republicans still have a chance. it's incredible what's gone on and they're still

in the running. it's still 1500 coordinated radio stations, 15 hrs a day. his croaking had a big impact but there's an army of wannabes and his 'students' still blowing out those megaphones and while they may not be as coordinated and intimidating they still make democrat discussions about 'messaging' fairly useless. he taught them all but now they're starting to wander a bit.

24. I agree. Conservative talk radio is an under recognized source

of unrest and angst in America.

25. Great movie plus Bette Midler actually lost the weight as the timeline in the movie

She shows how common household items can be used as a workout/weight room fitness regime. Kinda a knock-off on the gym rat trend of the time, ala Jane Fonda.

9. Whitmer is up 55-39

And it’s probably worse than that. Dixon is a total amoral fascist ghoul.

17. Dixon is clueless

Totally out of touch with the voters. MAGA repubs are running here on hurting small businesses because of Covid shut down.

19. Same As Here

Bailey running the same kind of ads against Pritzker here in Illinois.
In one of the ads, there's this seemingly rational guy complaining about state finances and business climate, despite the stare's credit rating going up 3 tiers in 4 years.
On top of that, the guy in the ad complaining has seen 300% revenue growth while JB has been governor.
Under Rauner, his revenues went up 16% in 4 years.
How bad could the business climate be?
Answer: it's fine & they're making it up.
