Sorry, kos, as of this afternoon, according to exit polls, nobody but Republicans seems very interested in the Michigan Republican primary. It's not a very nice day, turnout is light, according to the Grand Rapids Press.

On Tuesday there were both Democratic and Republican primaries and though ballot maneuvering left the Democratic side in essence non-competitive, apparently it kept some Democrats from migrating to the Republican contest — where they made up fewer than one in 10 voters. In 2000, Republicans made up only 48 percent of the GOP primary electorate; Tuesday they were two-thirds of it. A quarter of Republican primary voters Tuesday called themselves independent, down from 35 percent eight years ago.

still, even a few thousand Democrats bent on clusterf**k can create a lot of havoc.

No word so far on John Bambenek's groundbreakingly ignorant 6th grade homeworklegal challenge. As far as I know, kos is still laughing too hard pick up the phone and lawyer up.

Unfortunately for the clusterf**kers, popular ex-gov Bill Milliken went off on Romney yesteday. I think this will more than compensate for any Kossacks voting for Willard the rat .

I'd advise you all to emulate Matt Yglesiasand start loading up your John McCain stories, cause he's gonna be the doddering old white guy Republican nominee. And it is entirely possible that he will be elected president.....of Del Boca Vista, phase II.

Polls will be closing about a half hour after this diary is posted. Here are the poll guesses. Register your prognostication and get out the Orville. The GR Press link above will have exit polls.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
