Jennifer Granholm, the special brand of crazy that graced last night’s Democratic National Convention, isn’t exactly news to those of us in Michigan forced to live under her for eight years of misery. She was the worst Governor in contemporary Michigan history, overseeing record numbers of lost jobs, closed factories, and people moving out of Michigan in droves. It’s a microcosm of what Barack Obama did to America. We’re used to her hyena-esque rants. She repeatedly pulled that crap at Detroit Red Wing and Pistons victory parades . . . and was booed and laughed off the stage. She was also laughed out of Michigan, after she told us, “in five years, you’ll be blown away!” But the only thing blown away was any hope Michigan had of an economic recovery.
Here’s the Jenny From the Block Granholm we suffered in Michigan:
When Jennifer Granholm ran for Governor in 2002, she ran comical commercials about being an immigrant who worked her way through school. Nope, she wasn’t a Vietnamese boat person struggling to survive and then make ends meet in America. She was the Canadian-born daughter of a wealthy bank president. And her reign over Michigan’s destruction was just as dishonest and fraudulent.
Our recession began under Granholm in 2003, much earlier than in the rest of the country. We went from 6.8% unemployment to 15% unemployment. And Granholm responded with the silliest, kookiest, Kardashian-like measures. She threw tax money at something she called the “Cool Cities Initiative,” giving gay-dominated and supposedly hip cities money to retain their “coolness” and attract young college grads from around the country. The money went poof, and few new grads came here. She then forced Michigan’s small business owners and taxpayers to finance a 42% Michigan film tax credit and tax-free status to Hollywood films and TV shows produced here. People like Drew Barrymore came here for a few weeks, then took the money with them back to Hollywood, and laughed all the way to the bank. Several of the movies were semi-porn, and most went straight to video or to nowhere at all.
And during all this time, there was a reason Michigan needed the auto bailout: it had a Governor–the Governatrix Gran-HO, as I called her on my then CBS Radio show in Detroit–who did nothing to help the auto industry remain solvent. Instead, she spent like there was no tomorrow, made Michigan an inhospitable place for business, and was a union chick, bolstering unions and making it impossible for jobs to remain in Michigan. And she hired Ismael Ahmed, an anti-Israel, pro-Hezbollah/HAMAS cretin whose Arab Muslim welfare organization committed gazillions in Medicaid fraud for pregnant Muslim aliens seeking for you to pay for their birthright citizenship tourism, to run Michigan’s largest agency: the one charged with administering Medicaid. More waste there. A Michigan Arab American Commission meeting I attended featured her administration’s chief job recruiter, bragging that 20% of all hires and appointees in the state were Arabs and/or Muslims and they aimed to bring that number up to a third of all hires and appointees (Arabs and Muslims are 1.5% of Michigan’s population, at the most).
And while Granholm was busy ruining Michigan, her chief advisor and guru–effeminate hubby Dan Granholm Mulhern (he changed his middle name to her last name to reflect who really wears the pants in the family)–a former candidate for the priesthood, AIDS awareness fundraiser, and positivity consultant–was busy putting on programs for Mr. Moms and men who assume the bra-and-panties-wearing positions in their marriages. It was comical, but I had fun with it on my radio show. Most everyone with a pulse and a working brain believes he’s gay. I especially had fun with the Governatrix and her lesbian chief of staff decrying having to wear skirts to Inaugural events. We can’t have masculine alpha she-males wearing skirts. It’s an insult to their testicles.
Jennifer Granholm’s biggest achievement in life is that she fooled Michigan voters repeatedly, but she was helped by Republicans who gave us lame, faux-conservative, Romney-esque candidates as alternatives. Her second biggest achievement was her removal of several facial moles she pretended she was proud of. After telling girls they should accept their physical flaws, she hypocritically didn’t accept hers. After all, she had a show to host on Al Gore’s TV station, once she high-tailed it out of the Michigan she destroyed with big government, higher taxes, massive, silly spending, and a lot of needless regulations, all coupled with unfettered liberalism both fiscally and socially.
So, given all of this, is it really a surprise that Jennifer Granholm, horrible Governor, far-left fanatic from Berkeley, and crackpot Current TV host, had a Howard Dean style screech-fest and freak-out session at last night’s Democratic Convention?
Nope. Those of us in Michigan were forced to live it for eight years. And we’re now glad to be rid of her, even if it means foisting the nutjob-ette on others.
This is, after all, a woman who wanted to become a famous actress in Hollywood (but Hollywood didn’t want her) and became a contestant on “The Dating Game.” The same woman who put on a hoodie in solidarity with Trayvon Martin in a cheap publicity stunt to get attention for her crappy show, which only two vegan cat ladies in Seattle are watching.
Now, she’s getting the fame she always sought, and the world is seeing her and the screechy unhinged creature we always knew she was.
