John Kasich likes to present himself as if he was Johnny Everyman. Today, in the Columbus Dispatch, Kasich, an avid Steelers fan dating back to his origins as a Pennsylvanian transplant, uses a sports analogy to illustrate his sheer awesome ability to pull the Building a Better Ohio campaign across the finish line:
“We never thought (former Cleveland Browns quarterback) Bernie Kosar would bring the Browns back and win that big championship game,” Kasich said.
First of all, if you’re using a Cleveland Browns reference as an analogy for your “winning,” you obviously aren’t winning. Hollywood would make a movie about the Indians chasing the pennant, but not one in which the Browns go to the Super Bowl. Second, Kasich is factually correct. We didn’t believe Bernie Kosar could bring the Browns back and win that big championship game. And for good reason:
Kosar never won a championship game with the Browns, going 0-3 in AFC title tilts with trips to the Super Bowl on the line.
Man of the people FAIL Who-Dey!
