Silly me, this fact didn’t even occur to me, but Michael E. Hanke over at the Canton Repository points it out

Shame on Republican Ken Blackwell for saying his opponent for Ohio governor, Democrat Ted Strickland, will raise taxes if he is elected. A governor can?t raise taxes. He might propose a tax, and he might even veto a tax bill, but only the Legislature can raise taxes. And since hell has a better chance of freezing over than the Democrats have in taking over a majority of seats in either house of the Ohio Legislature in November, you aren?t going to see a tax increase proposal from a Democrat governor pass in Ohio.

All this “Ted = Tax” hullaballoo from wingnuts just doesn’t make any sense.

Hat tip to Yellow Dog Sammy over at Ohio2006.

    They are both dirty politicians. Vote for Bill Peirce… we need a frickin’ economist for governor!

    Why woudl I want to vote for the Libertarian? The policies don’t work. Or rather, they are bad for average people.
