It turns out Franklin County voters aren’t all bad

According to WBNS, voters have approved the Franklin County MRDD Levy.

Good work, people.

With 79% of precincts reporting, 69% have voted YES – and only 31% NO.

My only question is: who are these uncaring, unkind and unsympathetic people who voted NO?

My guess: Rich Republicans with healthy children.

With 69% of precincts reporting and John O’Grady leading Cindy Lazarus 56% to 44% I figure I’ve already lost favor with the soon-to-be-new Franklin County Commissioner, so it doesn’t hurt too much now if I post the stuff I heard today about him.

1. John’s been sending out emails and advertising himself as having “the unanimous endorsement of the 141 neighborhood leaders of the local Democratic Party” even though, I’ve been told, “there were people that abstained from voting at the endorsement meeting” – which means he did NOT get the unanimous endorsement of all people- just those who decided […]

Exit polling…

On March 4, 2008 By

Watching the basketball game, but I was looking at CNN’s exit polling and something interesting jumped out at me…

Despite Clinton supporters claiming that Obama and his supporters are sexist, of people who answered the question “was the gender of the candidate important to you?” in the affirmative went for Clinton 57% to 43%. Voters who answered “no” split nearly down the middle. Additionally, of voters who said that the race of the candidate was important, Clinton was winning 56-43. Of voters who said race wasn’t important, voters split down the middle.

Very interesting.

It’s a damning indication of how poorly things have gone for the United States during its five-year misadventure in Iraq that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad can drive in broad daylight though this war-ravaged city and spend the night at the presidential palace, but George W. Bush can’t.

Mr. Ahmadinejad was greeted with lavish ceremony yesterday as he became the first Iranian President to visit Baghdad, a trip some said reflected Iran’s great and growing power in Iraq and how severely the U.S. effort to remake Iraq into a Western-friendly democracy has gone awry.

Nearly 4,000 American soldiers have died since […]

GOP foreign policy endgame

On March 4, 2008 By

Supporters of the Iraq War often state that the war has “proven” that we are willing to attack if necessary, and thus was a successful bit of foreign policy. (Funny – Iran doesn’t seem to be acting any better now than they were before.) This odd “peace thru belligerence” approach nearly came to a head on October 27, 1969, when Richard Nixon loaded up 18 B-52 bombers with nuclear weapons and launched them towards Moscow with the intent of terrifying the USSR into pressuring Hanoi into making concessions at the peace negotiations in Paris.

Codenamed Giant Lance, Nixon’s plan […]

According to a new Washington Times/Rasmussen Reports poll

Republicans like Sen. Barack Obama nearly as much as they like their own likely presidential nominee, Sen. John McCain…

The survey determined that a quarter of self-identified Republicans rated Mr. McCain most likable, but nearly as many — 23 percent — chose Mr. Obama as most likable. And among all adults surveyed, Mr. Obama was rated likable by more people than Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Mr. McCain combined, underscoring the Illinois senator’s appeal to voters across the political spectrum.

No shit.

Hillary Clinton told reporters that both she and the presumtive Republican nominee John McCain offer the experience to be ready to tackle any crisis facing the country under their watch, but Barack Obama simply offers more rhetoric. “I think you’ll be able to imagine many things Senator McCain will be able to say,” she said. “He’s never been the president, but he will put forth his lifetime of experience. I will put forth my lifetime of experience. Senator Obama will put forth a speech he made in 2002.” Clinton was referring to Obama’s anti-war speech he delivered […]
