It came from beyond…

Attack of the Killer Heads

In a time of darkness, when Hope seemed to have gone out for a pack of smokes and ended up on a boat to China, when television seemed to have become nothing more than an ad delivery service, when the most flawed candidate in the history of our state seemed like a credible threat, well, in those days the people of Michigan finally got a chance to have their say.

Vote, people, and get your friends, relatives and total strangers to do the same.

Michigan’s future isn’t for sale.

Ominous music to hum on Election Day!

Dick Devos has a Secret Weapon for the Debate!

October 2, 2006

Dick Devos has a Secret Weapon

There’s a lot of loose talk that Governor Granholm will clean Dick Devos’s clock in tonight’s Michigan Gubernatorial Debates. I should know because I’m the one who’s talking loose about it!

The plan is simple:

  1. Lower the expections for me “I’m just a business guy who’s accustomed to getting things done than talking about it.”
  2. Raise the expections for the Gov “The governor’s a Harvard-trained lawyer, a skilled debater, a good communicator.”
  3. Reap the return when I prove more skillful than expected due to a lifetime of sharpening my skills in talking people into really bad ideas like Amway!

Remember to tune in and watch Dick Devos debate Governor Jennifer Granholm right here at Michigan Debate Central (and watch the Disembodied Head hand it to the Liberal Legion at MichiganLiberal.com)

PS: I lifted part of this from some working stiff who can just count himself lucky that this is all I took!

Dick Devos is A-OK with Intelligent Design!

September 21, 2006

Dick Devos is A-OK with Intelligent Design!
The commie blogosphere and the Detroit Free Press is making a big deal out of Dick Devos’s thoughts on Intelligent Design. All I said was:

“Lots of intelligent people can disagree about the origins of life. In the end, I believe in our system of local control. Local school boards should have the opportunity to offer evolution and intelligent design in their curriculums.”

I’m fine with local people with no science credentials setting our educational agenda. If people want to teach that God created the universe in seven days, eight days, or even guided evolution with his infinitely wise nudges, I’m fine with that.

In fact, I’m quite interested in the teachings of this church about the mysteries of evolution.

Lookie! I stole this Flying Spaghetti Monster thingee that proudly professes Dick Devos’s committment to making new and exciting classroom materials available to Michigan’s students from Disgruntled Doug over at Devos is a Dick! What’s the matter? Somebody jealous their Daddy isn’t a multi-billionaire?

Dick Devos CAN Relate (he just doesn’t want to)

August 22, 2006

Pretending to Be SadIf I had heartstrings (or a heart), this letter to the editor from the Grand Rapids Press would really tug at them.

DeVos can’t relate

I commend Sue Guy for the wonderful letter she wrote about Dick DeVos (“DeVos’ deep pockets,” Pulse, Aug. 08). I couldn’t have said it better myself. I’m one of those people who lives every day in poverty. We work seven days a week 10 hours a day and still don’t have the money to pay rent. Most of us can’t get the health care we need or buy drugs we need because we just don’t make the money we need to live. So, we have to cut something out of our lives.

DeVos needs to come down to where we live, do our jobs and see what its like. Try eating Spam three times a week, or go without seeing a doctor, these are just facts of life for real people. I wish I could just blow my money, must be nice to go out to eat. Must be nice to not die from the heat or freeze from the cold, or even have money to buy a pair of shoes.

Just like in the Ten Commandments when Moses held a high office and was cut down to live with the real people. He found out only then what its like to have a hard life. And only then did he realize he had to do something to free his people. DeVos just doesn’t get it and never will.

MARYE PUNCHES/Wyoming

I thought I would respond to Mayre and the countless others who are suffering under the evil domination of Gov. Granholm.

Dear Marye,

Your letter touched me. At least it would have touched me if I weren’t just a Disembodied Head, floating far above the concerns of mere mortals such as yourself. I would love to come down and see how you live, but quite frankly I’m not comfortable in communities that aren’t gated. Besides, I can tell by reading that your story is one of despair. Jittery Jenny Granholm has been your Governor for 4 years and it’s actually all her fault. I know you’re saying “But what about the Republican majority in both the Senate and the House?” but I’m telling you that I have met that majority and if you expect them to help you, you’re just asking to be even sadder than you already are.

I have never tried Spam. Is it like foie gras? I’m sure if I did have to eat this Spam I would eat it the same way you do, probably under glass and served with a Pomerol Château Pétrus or some such. As to dying from the heat or freezing from the cold, let me tell you that I have caught terrible chills many times from $1000 dollar a plate fundraisers when the air conditioning was set too high and just last week when I got into my Lexus, the seats were so hot that I started sweating.

As to the shoes thing, while it might seem that Dick Devos has more shoes than Imelda Marcos, I actually probably have as many pairs of hand-tooled, Italian loafers in my shoe closet as you do!

In closing, everything is Granholm’s fault and I hold my Spam fork just like you do!

Your Pal,

The Disembodied Head of Dick Devos
