“Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall. Humpty Dumpty had a great fall. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men couldn’t put Humpty together again.”

Michigan politics seems a lot like Humpty Dumpty lately. The Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey said that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer was “on the bat s--- crazy spectrum” during a presentation to students at Hillsdale College last month. Thankfully, a Hillsdale campus newspaper reporter did his or her job and reported this breach of class by the Senate majority leader. Following that college news story, the Senate majority leader did apologize. Earlier this month, Gov. Whitmer was even able to laugh off the event by sending Shirkey a birthday present, a cake with a bat prominent in the frosting.
