Schuette Shoots for Surplus

 

There must be something in the water they drink in the Attorney

General's office because it turns the occupants into a finely tuned

headline gathering machine.

 

Current occupant Bill Schuette has picked up right where Attorney

General Jennifer Granholm and Frank Kelley left off.

 

Whether it's promoting the notion that he alone is standing at the

mouth of Lake Michigan to battle the Asian Carp from invading our

waterways, or battling those medical marijuana shops that popped up all

over the state, Bill Schuette is on duty and this time it was to fight

what else? Crime, of course.

 

Mr. Crime-fighter wants to swipe $140 million of the state's $500

million surplus to hire 1,000 new cops. And funny thing, the law

enforcement community showed up in force the other day to provide the

human backdrop for his big announcement. Why not? They would share

most of the largess.

 

Mr. Schuette waxed on, as the phalanx of TV cameras recorded his

every word, suggesting that if Michigan was ever going to enjoy an

economic recovery, it would first need to make the state safe.

 

Hand it to the Billster it was a great pitch, a great performance

but it did not open to rave reviews across the street where lawmakers

will decide the plan's fate.

 

"I don't want to give the money to anybody," the crusty and stingy

chair of the House budget committee rebutted the Schuette sound bites.

 

"I'm willing to talk to him about it," countered the equally

unenthusiastic chair of the Senate budget panel.

 

Put Rep. Chuck Moss and Sen. Roger Kahn down as "maybes" leaning

toward a no.

 

Those two guys control the purse strings and they note that Mr.

Schuette is not the only one standing in line for a surplus hit.

 

"Do we want a thousand teachers? Or a thousand inspectors for

nursing homes?...We can't afford all the good things that everybody

wants," Mr. Moss concluded.

 

Mr. Kahn would only describe his position as "not a complete

rejection."

 

So despite the masterful media manipulation of the issue, Mr.

Schuette got his media fix for the week, but his chances of landing the

cash?

Don't count on another glitzy news conference if the answer is a

big fat N-O.

Yah, there is something in the Attorney General's water.

 

Its called Dioxin.

 

Much like a vampire needs the defiled soil from its homeland to sleep in, Attorney General Bill Schuette requires the Dioxins that occur "naturally" in the waters of his Midland homeland's Tittabawassee River to rejuvinate his strength and sense of purpose.

 

Its ironic that Bill Schuette, much like his father and step-father before him, draws life, vigor, and wealth from a substance that causes weaker, less important Midlanders to contract cancer and die from the Dioxins.

 

Schuette is a rare creature indeed to be able to transmute those toxic Dioxins from a poison into the very Water of Life.
