On Wednesday, John Kasich was taken on a short fishing trip on Lake Erie.   According to the Blade, Kasich showed up at the boat dock around noon, a great time for getting a photo op in the afternoon sun, but probably the worst time to head out on the lake if you actually want to catch any respectable type of fish.   Not surprisingly, the governor didn’t catch any walleye or perch, but he did bring up a couple of sheephead, considered by many to be Lake Erie’s premier trash fish.

John’s crack media team was quick to post a photo on Facebook of master fisherman Kasich reeling in his big catch.   The photo drew lots of hilarious comments about the type of fish as well as his choice of fishing attire.    The best ten are included below.





Vito Boscaino: Could you at least dress like you were going fishing. Nothing like a forced photo op…..

Robert Easton: Couple things here. Change the clothes and throw the sheep head back. Other than that I hope you had fun.

Mandy Gwirtz: Nice outfit. I support you on most things but you look ridiculous.

Michael Neal: Should have went golfing with obama again….rino

Gary Stieber: Who fishes in an oxford shirt?

Richard Roth: That’s the first thing I thought too. I get a “photo-op” but dress for the occasion….Unless you’re Michael Dukakis!

David P. Elias II: You can go ahead and throw that nasty governor fish!

Gary Stieber: Look closely you can see the scuba divers

Kevin Spencer Squirreldogs: Gov John You are the best thing we’ve had in Ohio in a LONG time. But next time I would wait for the photo to show a nice Lake Erie walleye. Not a sheephead! I sang for you in Mansfield before your election. I sang “God Bless America Again” and I brought you to the stage when I said and God Bless John Kasich!!

Jim Stavropulos Sorry Gov, that’s a photo op… Good try. You’re still doing well though.

Alan Slocum Give ’em Hell, John… and get some feeshin’ clothes!

    This rivals the fork in the road photo out in the middle of nowhere with the clueless look on his face. Don’t we deserve better than this fool?

    Who thinks this guy is a Rino?!?

  • wetsu

    Our intrepid leader must be prepared at any time to move “at the speed of business” at a moment’s notice. This is especially the case when one considers the blistering pace of job growth Ohio has seen under Johnny Rocket, ergo the choice of clothing ensemble.

  • Think.

    Might an extremist who’s more unusually excessive than an average Republican be called a RINO?

  • dmoore2222

    Yeah. He may be needed on short notice to hand out a barrel of JobsOhio cash to a political donor for some phony “job creation” project, which is really just corporate welfare.
    But, hey, those who voted for him got what they voted for and those who didn’t show up to vote, namely democrats, got what they didn’t vote for. Elections have consequences.

  • Retrofuturistic

    He’s not dressed right because he was on his way to privatize some more schools and prisons, so that those now unregulated and non-unionized entities can bring in more taxpayer money to his donors.

    So typical . . . a Republican WASP trying to fit it . . . Pathetic!
