Kildee for Governor? Not So Fast

Dave Barber's thoughts — via Facebook — on a possible run for governor by Dan Kildee? Not a chance.
"I love the quote, "I feel strongly obligated to think about this." Obligated to "think" about it? I'm obligated to think about breathing. Dan must be laughing his ass off. He's milking this for all it's worth. His stock continues to go UP. He is NOT going to run for gov. That's wayyyyy too much work. Off to DC for Mr. Kildee. Lunch at the Palm, Larry King Live and five star hotels. I hope he's started his book about shrinking cities. Then he can go back to obligatory THINKING."

  1. Hubby and I talked about this deal last night. I grew up knowing many of the Kildee's and the one thing we agreed on right off the bat was Dan has no polish and isn't very well put together. He would be laughed out of running. Poor little boy.


Thanks for commenting. I moderate comments, so it may take a while for your comment to appear. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at
