Where politics and faith dance in the shadow of the windmill.

So Ken, why not tell us what you really feel?

It was a genuine Michael Kinsley moment, when the politician makes a gaffe of accidentally telling the truth.

In the 2008 Election Guide, published by the Grand Rapids Press, Ken Yonker, one of the candidates for the Michigan House of Representatives (SH-72) was asked about utilities:

The state’s largest utilities want a guaranteed customer base before they invest in new plants. Should they have this guarantee?

Ken Yonker: Shakedown. Sorry, but I don’t negotiate with people this way.
There’s coffee all over the keyboard on that one.
