Oakland County Commish Brooks Patterson is Michigan’s most competent pol – so naturally media snobs hate him. When Lansing decreed that all businesses ban smoking (except the politically-connected ones like casinos), it inflamed Patterson’s property rights instincts (for the libs out there, that’s “P-R-O-” . . . ). The mob recoils and Patterson backs off a politically ill-advised legal challenge. Which doesn’t mean the man doesn’t have a point. Thus the toon.
