OK, so first report back from the U-N-I-T-Y event says that Sherrod Brown apologized for swiftboating Paul and for cutting his funding off at the knees…good….what? Huh? Paul apologized to Sherrod?

Free skate in hell…ya’ll come! I don’t mean to ask a stupid question, nor the obvious, but what in the world could Paul have to apologize for? Serving his country? Answering the call when asked to oppose DeWine? Getting swiftboated? Having fundraisers bullied? Getting netroots guys hired out against him and flipped? Ya, I guess all of that. Shame on you Paul Hackett. Shame on you!

Wow. Just […]

Space Over Ney in 5…4…3…

On July 10, 2006 By

Zack Space is pounding Bob Ney in an internal poll. Ruh-roh. Polling. Let’s get all geared up to fuss about numbers. You can say what you will, but I call this a bad sign:

The poll, conducted by Cooper & Secrest Associates surveyed 503 likely general election voters in Ohio’s 18th district on June 28th and 29th. Before any messages are tested, Space leads the race with 46 percent. Bob Ney is at 35 percent, with 19 percent undecided.

Uh, wow. Maybe I’m wrong about the Strickland effect? Or is it just that all these “red” districts are fed up […]
