Did John Kasich’s campaign steal marketing ideas from pop music icons and sex websites? Having visited Kasich’s website it’s really hard not to make the comparison.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for developing a brand for your candidate.

But “a New Day”? “Tried,-Tested-and-Proven”?

These ‘slogans’ sound much too familiar.

I’m the exact opposite of a C?line Dion fan, but even I know they stole “a new day” from her Vegas show

Get yourself a frilly, white, tight-fitting pants suit and maybe we can talk about a campaign slogan that pays tribute to Canada’s most famous pop […]

Joe C’s Money in Serious Jeopardy

On February 25, 2010 By

Ruh roh. Looks like ACORN may be getting $100 from my wingnut friend Joe C. We made a wager (I don’t forget these things – someone still owes me a bottle of bourbon from the 2008 Presidential…cough…Keeler…cough). The wager came after I made fun of those on the right getting lathered up by an article taking comments out of context to indicate (they thought) that Obama was leaving open the option of not running for re-election.

Joe C was very sure of it and even put $100 on it. Given to our favorite charity. I guess Joe […]

Well, that was depressing

WKYC (Cleveland’s NBC TV affiliate, Channel 3) just left my apartment after an interview about the county council campaign.? I even took direction.? On the whole, I guess it was o.k., but still a bit depressing, and since I find it therapeutic to blog about this stuff, well, here it is.

I got a chance to talk about transparency in county government (which is why I’m running), but most of the interview was about my last name (not related) and my conviction from 2002.? Of course, I expected that.? Of course, I decided to run for this county council […]

This is just comical.

And he deftly recognizes that with the stimulus funds we do receive, they shouldn?t be spent to expand government, but instead for one-time needs so as to avoid creating a dependency we can?t meet once the one-time funds disappear.

Do I wish we didn’t have the stimulus at all? Of course. But we do, and if we’re going to spend this money, let’s do it responsibly.

Um, Kasich can’t have to both ways. He cannot decry Governor Strickland for accepting stimulus money because it “creates a dependency we can’t meet once the one-time funds […]

I was not the biggest Cash fan growing up. I bristled at anything remotely “country”. Dad was a big fan so I got a solid foundation on the basics. It wasn’t until his later years and his crossover to the rock side of the world that I gained more respect and began to pay more attention to him. I got to meet him once in the Nashville airport. Super nice and down to earth type. Smaller in stature than you’d think.

His cover of Soundgarden’s Rusty Cage solidified me as a fan. Bloody brilliant. One of the best re-tellings of […]
