  •  John Bambenek is the culprit....AGAIN (8+ / 0-)

    The guy is "Part-time pundit" and he hates kos. He filed a complaint with the FEC which was scornfully blasted because he wasn't aware that the FEC had already decided the question in a previous case:

    In Matter Under Review (MUR) 5928, the Commission determined that Kos Media, L.L.C., which operates the website DailyKos, did not violate the Federal Election Campaign Act.  The Commission rejected allegations that the site should be regulated as a political committee because it charges a fee to place advertising on its website and it provides "a gift of free advertising and candidate media services" by posting blog entries that support candidates.  The Commission determined that the website falls squarely within the media exemption and is therefore not subject to federal regulation under the Act.

    He's from Illinois, and he isn't the  brightest bulb in the chandelier. Here's  one place he blogs.  He likes to call himself an "academic professional," and you can guess what that is and isn't.
    Meanwhile, back in Michigan:

    At the polls, voters will be required to state in writing which ballot they wish to receive—Republican or Democratic.
    There is no party membership requirement to participate in the primary and voting a particular ballot does not register the voter as a member of that party.
    You need not be a registered member of the party to vote and requesting a partisan ballot will not make you a registered member of that party.

    John Bambenek, blowing as hard as ever.

    fouls, excesses and immoderate behavior are scored ZERO at Over the Line, Smokey!
