The new issue of the Independent is out, and I’ve got two pieces in it.? The main piece handicaps the coming county executive and council races….who’s the front runner?? You’ll have to read it to find out!

My second piece details a Cleveland event where PD columnist Phillip Morris decided to get all jiggy wit me….fun!

I don’t ordinarily post about fundraising pitches, let alone post the entire content of such a pitch in my post (after the break.)  However, I think its noteworthy that the Ohio Democratic Party just sent out a fundraising e-mail from Senate Minority Leader Capri Cafaro (D-Hubbard) capitalizing on the Senate GOP’s complete inability to resolve the budget.

First, the Senate GOP gave the Senate Democrats unprecedented political relevancy by committing to a plan that would require their support.  Now, their failure to deliver a plan that the Democrats can support has made them look paralyzed by rigid ideology that leaves […]

Well, well, well. After Modern notices how Kyle Sisk decides to smear an innocent man by using the man’s picture purely because the innocent man is black, Sisk removes the picture, and edits the line that puts him on the hook for defamation.

Granting clemency to murderers never sits well with the electorate.

Is now…

Granting clemency to alleged murderers, unsubstantiated murderers or whatever never sits well with the electorate.

“Or whatever”?? So clever.

Quit trying to create controversy where it does not exist.? Nice try though. NOTE: I may be an ass, but I’m not a racist thank […]

Apparently, conservative blogger Kyle Sisk thinks that Governor Strickland’s granting of clemency to an innocent African-American wrongfully convicted?of murder could be a political liability for Governor Strickland:

Granting clemency to murderers never sits well with the electorate.

Funny, they can be a little touchy about the subject…go figure.

For reasons that are painfully obvious, Sisk felt compelled to put a picture of Willie Nighten, Jr. on the post.? He calls him a murderer and says that Strickland’s grant of clemency to this black murderer could come back to haunt him if people like Nighten

go out […]

Former Vice-President Cheney is right.  Obama would have a much easier time dealing with Afghanistan by not thinking.  It’s so much easier to hick it down to the next Administration and, if it’s a member of the opposition party, you can then blast them for replacing your non-strategy with a strategy. Former Bush WH Spokewoman Dana Perino on FOX News: “We did not have a terrorist attack on our country during President Bush’s term. I hope they’re not looking at this politically. I do think that we owe it to the American people to call it what it […]

In a preemptive strike against the oncoming invasion of Hispanic immigrants and their eventual takeover of our government,
Lou Dobbs plans to run against Senator Robert Menendez “the Senate’s only Hispanic member aned a strong advocate for immigrant rights.”

I guess this is what he meant by “constructive problem-solving”.

The video that launched a thousand camera carrying bloggers at the vapid soul of the conservative movement, which became the #7 Most Viral Video of the 2008 presidential campaign, and created an entirely new genre of cinema verite starring the most ignorant fools ever to engage in political discourse….the McCain Palin Mob, as of this post, is less than 400 views away from hitting 2 million.?? At the current rate of around 300-400 views a day (which is a bump thanks to last week’s Palin book signing fun) it will cross 2 million views by Thanksgiving.

Some more […]

I got an email from GOP Chairman Michael Steele tonight that had me clicking around on the GOP’s beta website. While there I came across this strange header logo image:

GOP “faces” it says next to the image.

Which is really weird because I never would have thought that a chubby, short haired white guy in a light blue button down shirt would be the face of the Republican party.

Never in a million years.

So I decided to click through on the “faces” link to see what other ethnically and racially diverse set of faces represents today’s […]
