The Weed Patch GOP Ohio Elite

On September 29, 2016 By

In  the brief  pause after the first debate,  I want to  recognize a special group of Republican Ohio politicians that I will continue to do  up to election day.

It’s  the shadowy group that endorsed Donald Trump and then took the first covered wagon out of town.  Now you see ‘em and now you don’t.   Profiles in courage they aren’t. That’s an attribute that only shows up in their yard signs.

Allow me  to share the list with you:   Sen. Rob  Portman,  U.S. Rep. Renacci,  Atty. Gen. Mike DeWine, Secretary of State Jon Husted, Treasurer Josh  Mandel, Ohio House Speaker […]

The Debate

On September 27, 2016 By

OK. It’s behind us. The historic first debate between Donald and Hillary, I mean. Considering the media hype, I hung on to the end hoping to see the Martians land. lnstead, it was Donald the Mud Wrestler being Donald the Mud Wrestler and Hillary the Calm Diplomat being Hillary the Calm Diplomat. Sorry if I gave away the ending.

Obviously, even Roger Ailes, the predatory media exile who was Trump’s advisor for the debate, didn’t do much good. You discovered that much when Trump credited himself with being smart about not paying taxes. And despite volumes that recorded his approval […]

The Submissive Ohio GOP Pols

On September 27, 2016 By

From the party whose foul-mouthed leader says that he knows more about ISIS  than all of the generals, who insists that Mexico will pay for his wall, who asked Putin to hack Hillary’s emails,   who built his favorite tower on the backs of undocumented Polish workers, whose career has moved from one bankruptcy to another, who lives each  day with a vision of his name added to the U.S. Constitution and his face on Mount Rushmore, I am ashamed to admit as an Ohioan that the GOP political class in Columbus has  endorsed him.  Gov. Kasich is the only one […]

Renacci Endorses Trump Then Hides

On September 26, 2016 By

As some of you may not know, nor need to know, Rep. Jim Renacci, a Republican, posts a weekly report online  reeking  with goodness.  That would include the absence, week after week, of  any mention of his safely embedded endorsement of Donald Trump.

Renacci, it can be reported,  is among the GOP’s  winkers  who are trying to survive the Trump horror as a candy ass .

Ah, but otherwise there is good news in his reports, as with the latest one that begins in grand style  by telling us that he had a “very productive and successful” week in  Washington.  […]

Junior Skittles : Like Father, Like Son

On September 22, 2016 By

When Donald  Trump Jr.  breezily compared Syrian refugees to a bowl of Skittles, it revealed once again the Trump Culture so coldly detached from today’s bloodily inhuman  conflicts. At 38, “Skittles” Trump, as he shall now be known,   is  the dauphin who someday will inherit billions from Daddy’s purse and sees no reason to cast himself today as a worry wart over other people’s hardship.

As news sources begin taking a closer look at him, they are finding copious evidence that he has become the poster figure for right-wing militants, racists and other  radical groups  that  joined his father to […]

Pence: I Want To Be Cheney-2

On September 19, 2016 By

Did it surprise you to learn that Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, the Republican Veep candidate, wants to be Dick Cheney-2?

C’mon.  Even in jest, the times are too  serious to attach such idiocy to the snow-topped Republican who is proud of his reputation as a man of deep religious conviction.

But there he was on ABC’s “This week” as Cheney-2 by telling the audience,  “I frankly hold Dick Cheney in really high regard in his role as vice president and as an American”  and hopeful of being his role  model. I wonder if anybody reminded him that Cheney was not […]

It’s been a horrendous year  for the national media ever since it grabbed a deranged tiger by the tail as the alleged Republican presidential candidate. Nor were many of the network gurus prepared to accept America’s first woman presidential candidate. I mean, a country as big as ours that Donald Trump, whose rap sheet would traverse Lake Erie, wants to make great again by keeping a mere unqualified “crooked”  female out of the Oval Office?

Ah, but the network execs were saying at the outset that Trump was an audience builder, a marketable quantity when they defended cutting away from […]

The world isn’t flat and President  Obama is not a usurper.

We’ve known about the flatness thing since our kindergarten days.

But it wasn’t until Friday Sept. 16, 2016 that we  were informed by Donald Trump that the president was an American citizen in good standing. In a deplorable 27-second statement, the deplorable Republican candidate said  Barack  Obama was born in the United States. PERIOD.

Period? As the deplorable candidate explained  , he wants to get back to making America great again. For starters, he should get out of town.

Until yesterday, Trump had suckered his fans into  believing that […]

Michele Bachmann, the dumb forever-whining ex-congresswoman from Minnesota now serving as Donald Trump’s advisor on things religious, has issued a warning to those of us who are not  paying attention:  She asserted on the Christian Broadcasting Network that if Hillary is elected it will be America’s “last election”.   She said she really believes  it “beyond a shadow of a doubt” because with Hillary in the Oval  Office presiding over an off-white skin (brown and black) nation, we face an apocalypse.

Michele’s Doom’s Day histrionics are not new. . You may recall that she once complained about the burden of government […]

Bossie Lands On Trump’s Muddy Track

On September 6, 2016 By

Donald Trump has been so busy adding thugs to his smearing committee that his latest appointment of another cut-throat as his deputy campaign manager (whatever that means) hardly made the columns of many newspapers and newscasts.

We refer to David Bossie, whom Dan Rather described as a “professional political hitman”.

Rather warned us that you can expect the worst from him in the final two months of the presidential campaign.

Bossie has devoted much of his time with a shovel to dig up anything that might scandalize the Democratic presidential nominee. He’s also scandalized himself as the president of Citizens […]

Happy (Organized) Labor Day!

On September 4, 2016 By

Well, here we are on the eve of Labor Day and guess who is showing so much gratitude for the workers? 

Would you include right-wing officeholders like Ohio Republican Sen. Rob Portman and Rep. Jim Renacci, both of whom have endorsed Donald Trump (although  they hope you haven’t noticed!)

But about Labor Day, which was inspired by labor unionists whose programs have been so defiled today by Republican anti-unionists. Anybody on planets Portman or Renacci remember that a couple of union-headed workers named Matthew Maguire , a machinist, and Peter McGuire, a carpenter, inspired the creation of Labor  […]
