From a commenter.

This is what I just sent to Emily’s List. I live in Ohio.

I have been a longtime supporter of Emily’s List. I went to college with Ellen Malcolm and our fathers were college roommates. But this time I am not renewing my membership because I am furious that you have not supported/endorsed Jennifer. I have worked for her for the past year and know that she is the PERFECT EL candidate. She has even been bold enough to come out in favor of gay marriage. What more do you want from a candidate? […]

?I just came here looking for some common sense? to be put back into politics, he said.

So naturally, he looked for common sense and found Sonny Thomas.? Those common sense Tea Party values!

There’s a PD story today on just how primordially primitive Jon Husted’s Pavlovian teabagging of the Tea Party has been on its face, and how “angry” this all has made our good friends in the Tea Party (whatever the fuck that is).

Chris Littleton, president of the Ohio Liberty Council, said Husted’s overtures to the Tea Party are all propaganda that would make him laugh if he weren?t so angry. He said Husted declined to attend many candidate forums put on by Tea Party groups and similar organizations.

The reporter, Joe Guillen, even goes on to quote head Cleveland […]
