Friday was John Kasich’s birthday.

And I guess someone in the Governor’s office, realizing it would look really bad if some “idiot” cop pulled Kasich over for driving with an expired license, thought to ask John if his driver’s license was up-to-date.

It turns out it wasn’t.

Friends of Plunderbund have informed us that Kasich then showed up at the Bureau of Motor Vehicles office on Broad Street in downtown Columbus on Friday afternoon accompanied by Public Safety Director Tom Charles.

The BMV is a subdivision of the Department of Public Safety and it appears as though Charles used his pull as Director to get the Governor escorted passed all the patiently-waiting riff-raff and straight to the front of the line.

We dedicated a number of posts during the campaign to documenting the many stories about Kasich’s selfish, “Don’t you know who I am?” behavior. And it seems like Kasich has (kind of) learned his lesson.

Now, instead of personally berating and belittling hard-working employees in front of other customers, John Kasich brings along someone else to do it for him – someone who people actually do know.

    Well, we now know what Tom Charles is good for.  I wonder if he polishes the Governor’s shoes, too.

    There is a good line there…but best left unsaid.  Otherwise, they did not need the “loco-tion of the gov at the BMV office.  Get him in and out.  Take that any way you want.

    There are no rules for evil Prince John. He did learn to make his minions do his dirty work.

    Wonder if people booed him. That would be interesting. Otherwise, nothing to see here, move along.

    Life is good when you’re the biggest frog on the lily pad.
     

  • That makes two people I guess. You and John.

    The BMV employees are hard working civil servants who work hard to serve the people of Ohio. The last thing they need is John Kasich showing up with their boss ordering them to give priority to the Governor ahead of the other Ohioans who have been patiently waiting their turn.

    Even the GOP cannot trust Kasich in public where he might scold “you people” or some other group he despises waiting in line, thus the escort.

    Clearly the GOP Kasich handlers are learning that Kaisch is
    toxic when he has the opportunity to deliver his notorious undisciplined rants
    in public.  Even scheduled appearances
    are painful to watch when Kasich goes berserk with his trademark “…let me tell
    you” certitude.
     

    With Kasich, it’s all far-rightwing political blather all the
    time with no substance at all.  It’s all
    downhill whenever Kasich speaks his mind since there seems to be little therein
    other than right wing talking points and major mistakes.

    It’s no wonder that the GOP has squeezed the cash out of
    corporate sponsors, e.g., Scott’s and AEP, two of Ohio’s largest polluters he
    funds to deliver the message that Kasich cannot deliver.

    They’re hiding Kasich and must be terrified whenever Kasich
    is near a camera or microphone.  Mean,
    ugly and stupid – Kasich is the prom date from hell, a lesser chief-executive
    and the worst leader that the GOP could scrounge up.
     

    In Kasichstan, it’s only money that talks and that is only that which somehow
    gets funneled to him for his political glory and power, so it’s pay-up time for
    corporate Ohio.

    Why is this even news?  Who cares?  Look at it from another angle.  He’s a governor of a state who is woefully short of money for the budget and he’s a busy guy.  Maybe it’s a good thing that he doesn’t have to stay in the line for 3 hours with the “riff raff” so he can get back to doing his JOB, the job that riff raff elected him to do.  And riff raff, go to other DMV’s, like the ones in Gahanna and Bexley that are NEVER busy.  Just a thought.

    Give it a rest.  You’re mad about SB 5.  We get it.  Move on.  Besides, it’s all Bush’s fault, right?  Riiiiiiiiight.

  • Anonymous

    It matters to me, Anon v2.0, because the longer he spends in line the less time he has to do his “job”.  He’s been doing a “job” on Ohio for five months and so far all he has accomplished is to prove what a complete sock puppet he is.

  • Annekarima

    yeah, if he had been timely, he could have done this thru the mail. 

  • Annekarima

    Another thought – any real news going on out there? 

  • Anon

    No, I hate evil Prince John, PERIOD! 

  • Fotogirlcb2002

    He had to be escorted — he cant find his way by himself.
    The King never stands or sits or walks with the subjects.
    I am surprised the BMV wasnt moved to a balcony so he could look down……………….
    I hope they were all nice to him or he will privatize out their jobs to a buddy…………………….

    Aww, come on, give the guy a break. It must hurt to sit down with all that Butthurt he has against Unions, Black people, You people, Little people, DFHs, and the occasional independently-minded state rep.

    Kasich is the new face of Governance by Butthurt.

    Re: the BMV: Just another repug-nican “moment.” Forget party politics, he’s just an ass. Also, I forgot K-man was once a Lehman exec. Starting to wonder if this is just one part of some preordained, apocalyptic path — with Kasich simply fulfilling hius prophetic role as jackass who takes us for his insane ride. This jackass also repealed the very important ban against exotic animals in Ohio. This guy is SCARY dangerous. Hey, mabye that loose bear will maul him; only, I wouldn’t want the bear hurt.
