Back in June Michigan’s openly gay Democratic Attorney General Dana Nessel, whose 2014 suit against the gay marriage ban in Michigan was eventually combined with other cases and taken before SCOTUS resulting in the landmark Obergefell v. Hodges decision legalizing gay marriage, spoke before a conference hosted by the Michigan Department of Civil Rights and joked, in response to the burning issue of “drag queen story hour”, that “drag queens are fun” and that “a drag queen in every school” might not be a existential threat to the republic.
Four months later enter the humorless Tudor Dixon, whose idea of a joke is reversing Joe Biden’s electoral victory in the state in 2020 in favor of the Orangeutan, berating Macy’s department store for selling hijabs to its Muslim customers, and advocating forced birth for a 14 year old child raped by her uncle, placing a web-ad attacking Nessel’s boss Michigan Governor, whom Dixon trails in their gubernatorial race by double digits, accusing Whitmer of deviously plotting to accredit a legion of RuPauls to replace school teachers – who are probably among Whitmer’s strongest supporters – to give children make-up tips…
And they want books in every classroom too! 🙄😂

Sounds about right…
A world with a drag queen in every classroom as opposed to active shooter drills in every classroom actually sounds pretty nice.

What about armed drag queens, would maga be on board with that?

So Tudor's basically running on putting a stop to Critical Gay Theory….

This is quite a leap, then again, people believed the whole litterbox thing.

One born every minute.
The new taco truck on every corner. Don’t threaten me with a good time! Think of how much more engaging and entertaining learning would be would be with drag queen teachers. But it’s obviously not an actual Whitmer policy. Sadly there aren’t enough drag queens.

Drag queen taco trucks on every corner! Now that’s a winning plank!
Are there that many drag queens in Michigan? Maybe they can get DeathSantis to fly some in to adequately staff classrooms.

Is that supposed to be a bad thing?

One would think that Dixon has a least one political operative smart enough to tell her she already has the batshit MAGA vote locked down and perhaps she should pivot to the middle and try to make up some ground there.
Good news for Whitmer – it appears she doesn’t.
