Odd anti-Cranley ad

On October 26, 2006 By

TASERing children? Really?

Take Back Cincinnati has the scoop.

Nice endorsement from Suburban New Papers here in central Ohio. The papers reach more than 185,000 households.

Although this is Shamansky’s first run for public office in more than 20 years, he still shows a firm grasp of the challenges facing the nation. If Democrats win control of the House on Nov. 7, Shamansky will be a clear, strong voice for change, especially in the Bush administration’s disastrous foreign policies. And since he’s financing his campaign mostly with his own money – to the tune of more than $1 million, he says – Shamansky, who previously served one term in […]

Good Kilroy ad

Again, I refuse to drive traffic to this guy’s site, rewarding this kind of behavior. But it should be documented.

After printing some unsubstantiated “rumors” the other day, he continues today, “documenting” these rumors with an email from his “informant.” An excerpt:

I was at [redacted] almost all day last Monday trying to get evidence to support the rumor we have both heard. I got his 180 page personnel file and nothing hinted of the arrest.

That’s his evidence! THAT THERE IS NO EVIDENCE!

How much you want to bet that Corsi picks this up in World Net Daily, […]

Apparently Tiberi is suffering from tendonitis. Eric speculates that it might be from too much rubber-stamping, and suggests a solution.

Collation of election projections

On October 23, 2006 By

Unfutz has done some excellent work, pulling together in one place a summary of the predictions for the upcoming election. General consensus: Democrats win the House, the Senate hovering right around a split.

I’ve provided here the most recent predictions as of the time I wrote this post, but you can visit Unfutz to get the most up-to-date version regularly (it’s updated frequently).

Shamansky making inroads

On October 18, 2006 By

Time is starting to run out, but as early polling showed if Shamansky can get his message out there, he can win this district. CQ updated OH-12 from “Safe Republican” to “Republican Favored”.

12th District: Are you old enough to remember ? really remember ? the 1980 presidential race between Democratic incumbent Jimmy Carter and Republican Ronald Reagan? The disco era? The Philadelphia Phillies defeating the Kansas City Royals in the World Series?

Then perhaps, at least if you hail from an area of central Ohio in and around Columbus, you might recall the name of Bob Shamansky ? […]

Council for a Livable World

On October 16, 2006 By

I’ve been wanting to write about the NRCC ad attacking Zack Space. Here is the ad:

And here is why the ad is wrong, from the Zanesville Times-Recorder.

To the Editor:

A television ad paid for by the Republican National Committee implies that the supporters of Zack Space are in league with our enemies. The truth is that the Council for a Livable World was established in 1962 by a group of physicists who participated in the development of the atomic bomb.

Realizing the destructive capabilities of such weapons, they felt it their duty to […]

The NRCC is abandoning several races, and it looks like Pryce is one of the candidates being thrown to the wolves.

In this week’s House Line, Reps. John Hostettler (Ind.), Don Sherwood (Pa.) and Deborah Pryce (Ohio) are all cracking the top five for the first time. Republican strategists are extremely skeptical about any of the three returning to Congress in 2007 and may soon focus their resources elsewhere.

Good news. My pessimistic side was thinking that despite Kilroy’s good showings, the overwhelming media blitz against her was going to work. Apparently, the NRCC doesn’t think so.

New Shamansky Ad… “Anvil”

On October 7, 2006 By

Checking my mail before I head out to pick apples with the family and then watch the OSU game (hey, it’s the weekend – bloggers are allowed to have actual lives!), I found this gem…

I think it’s pretty funny, but sometimes you don’t know how these things will go over with the general public. I have to say, Bob is in full-court press mode right now.
