SHADES OF BLUE
Those who attended the Mackinac Policy Conference, an annual policy and political shmoozefest put on by Detroit Regional Chamber, reported it had a definite “blue” tint to it this year, held May 31-June 3, on Mackinac Island. In past years, it’s been a GOP hunting ground, with nary, or very few, Democrats hanging out on the storied Grand Hotel porch. This year, purportedly because of vaccination requirements indoors, more Democrats attended than Republicans, although some who attended said there was a collegial bipartisan atmosphere, allowing everyone to relax and actually chew the fat together. But hold your horses. Once they all left the island, toxic tactics came back into play.
