With encouraging predictions from the GOP’s resident gurus, Karl Rove and Dick Morris, that Gov.Kasich would defeat Democrat Ed  FitzGerald by 57 points, several low-ranking Republican lawmakers from southern Ohio are rumored  to be putting the final touches on a bill that would eliminate the 2014 gubernatorial election altogether.

One of the probable legislative  sponsors, an entry level statistician in JobsOhio, the secret Skull and Bones-style fraternity,  said he was impressed by crunching the numbers of campaign dollars and votes.

“It would save the state  money and create 627,492 – maybe even 627, 501 – jobs,” he said. “Who could be against jobs?”  he asked triumphantly.  

Who, indeed, when, by his account, 9  more jobs might even  be created?
