From the monthly archives: July 2009

Plunderbund was the first to out the author of Third Base Politics, a blog that has been pretending to be an “Ohio blog” since last year. Modern at BSB goes one further and uncovers that Jon Keeling is actually an ex-staffer of both Tiberi and Kasich.

He lives in the DC area (Arlington, VA). We’re familiar with that in Ohio. DC hacks entering the fray pretending to be Ohioan. We call it astroturfing. It’s fake. It’s dishonest. It’s going to get figured out and blogged.

So late welcome to the fray Jon Keeling. Welcome to OUR […]

So I get a Facebook group invitation from Jordan Smith today. I get tons of those and ignore most, but this one caught my eye: “How about this: Brunner for the Ohio 12th Congressional District!”

Huh? LOL. Where have we seen this argument before. I KNOW! Paul Hackett. Don’t run for Senate Paul. Just be happy to run for that little Congressional job. There is someone else and it’s “their turn”.

Shit gets so old.

So the argument is that both candidates are great and all, but Jennifer should just settle for running for a Congressional seat […]

An ODB Shout Out!

On July 29, 2009 By

Plunderbund got a video shout out today from Ohio Daily Blog – also one of our favorites for some time. We also liked Anthony’s previous blog Blue Ohioan. You’ll note the killer tee Anthony sports in the video. You should have one too. The first series from a couple years ago were quickly sold out, so you can’t pretend to be OP (Original Plunderbund), but you can get one! They’re only $15 (same price as in 2007!

Get a PlunderTee

Thanks Anthony. Pre-sh8 the luv d00d.

Unreal. It’s Pavlovian at this point with these people. Automatically go for the Barack Hussein Obama. Even while slamming Birthers!

William Shatner reads Sarah Palin’s farewell speech as beat poetry:

I wanted to do a quick snap poll of Ohio’s “thoughtful center-right bloggers”. How many of you are birthers and how many of you are conservatives? Or both?

Just wondering. Please feel free to comment (even those of you previously banned). This is a very serious inquiry into the current psyche of the Ohio wingnut blogger base.

Thank you,


PS – If you answer birther, or think there is any hint of a doubt in your mind about possibly being a birther, Bill Pascoe wants you to stop!

If you’re going to blog under a pseudonym and be anonymous, it’s best not to make your name on your blog the same as the name on your Twitter account that also contains your real name, which also happens to be the first Google result for said anonymous name.

Or maybe DJ Tablesauce (AKA Jon Keeling) didn’t want to be anonymous afterall. Which is weird. Why not just blog as Jon Keeling then? Who knows. Maybe he was initially worried that Intrepics would not like paying him to take shots at liberal Ohio […]

So Rob Portman and friends gave his website a major overhaul. I wondered why. I doubted seriously it had anything to do with any parody. You’ll notice a few things about the new Rob Portman website:

1. No red
2. Lotsa green!
3. Grass!!

Odd, eh. You’d think as center-right as Ohio apparently is that Rob would want to use as much red as possible. Hell, you’d think he was a member of the Green Party after looking at this redesign. Fancy new green/blue logo and everything:

No Ohio flag. No Amurican flag. Nuthin’. Dude […]

A few days ago the ODP went live with a parody of Rob Portman’s website complete with matching colors, etc.

Today I got an email from the Portman campaign announcing they had redesigned their website.

Now that Voinovich has nothing left to lose he can finally say all of the stuff that’s been eating him up for years.

And in a recent Dispatch interview he did just that.

My absolute favorite part is the revelation that George thinks “Southerners” are the biggest problem the GOP faces right now:

We got too many Jim DeMints (R-S.C.) and Tom Coburns (R-Ok.). It?s the southerners. They get on TV and go ‘errrr, errrrr.’ People hear them and say, ?These people, they?re southerners. The party?s being taken over by southerners. What they hell they got to do with […]
