When in doubt, throw some red meat at the base.

J. Kenneth Blackwell appears ready to jump-start his stalled campaign for governor by returning to the strategy that secured him the Republican nomination on May 2.

Trailing by double digits in the polls and lagging in major newspaper endorsements four weeks before the Nov. 7 election, Blackwell said yesterday that he plans to wage the rest of the campaign on tax cuts and his stands against abortion rights and same-sex marriage.

Unfortunately for Krazy Kenny, the base is starting to wise up to the fact that they are being manipulated, and cheaply, by politicians who ultimately hate the base.
