The Kos Michigan strategy

Filed under: Politics — Tags: , , — David Kirkpatrick @ 2:40 pm

Markos over at the Daily Kos is proposing some Michigan mischief. The idea is the Michigan primary is meaningless for Democrats because for the moment the state’s delegates have been stripped for violation of party rules.

Kos suggests Democrats should vote in the GOP primary for Mitt Romney. He reckons a Mitt (and his enormous bankroll) win will keep the GOP race much tighter with the candidates spending money and fiercely battling amongst themselves rather than preparing for the eventual Democratic presidential nominee.

There is a storied history of just this sort of behavior in Michigan. Among other incidents, the GOP crossed over to vote in 1988 giving that primary to Jesse Jackson.
