Within days of the recount in the GOP primary being called off with former Taft Agriculture Director/’08 nominee Fred Daily concede to freshman State Senator Bob Gibbs, the Zack Space congressional campaign wasted no time taking a swing at Gibbs with a fore-star attack ad that will have Gibbs asking for a mulligan on the GOP primary.

Either that presumably 50 ft. tall “Vote Steve Stivers May 4th” sign was photoshopped into a Tea Party crowd shot by the Ohio Republican Party or I missed the headline in the Columbus Dispatch:

58 Tea Party protesters killed by falling giant Stivers sign.

Christ, guys, don’t photoshop something where the sign looks so large that people’s heads are smaller than the dot on the “i.”? They actually cropped the bottom edge to make it appear like it was behind those folks and tilted the writing to give the impression it was displayed at an angle.?? What did […]

After reading my live blog of the Kasich-PalinTaylor press conference today where I noticed ads by employers looking to hire Ohioans popped up every time one of them said jobs, a fan of the site sent me this even better screen capture:

I bet Ohio GOP Chairman Kevin DeWine clicked it to see if it applies to political marriages.

…no, not really. Silly. But if they did you might be able to get the T shirt:

Kind of cool I guess, but kind of dumb just the same. Only some headlines have little T shirt icons next to them and you can’t make up your own headlines and order Tees. THAT would be sweet.

You can, of course, change the URL parameters to make your own like I did above – but don’t try ordering. It will crap out. Missed an opportunity there CNN! Stupid lawyers I imagine nixed that idea. 😉

Maybe I […]

I was just sipping on something sweet
I don’t need political process

Cause i don’t care where you’ve been
And I don’t care what you’ve seen
We’re the ones who still believe
And we’re looking for a page
In that lifeless book of hope
Where a dream might help you cope
With the Bushes and the bombs
A-re, Tranquilized

PlunderPool 2008

On March 16, 2008 By

OK, so I’ve already given myself the segue from politics to college basketball. So let’s talk some college hoops for a bit (at least until the first week of April and for sure all this next week!).

I’ve set up a tournament pool online and you are invited to join. All are welcome (yes, even you conservative types and Hillary supporters LOL). You will be asked for a password to keep the random people out. Use “plunderpool”. We’ll have some fun with it and everyone probably agrees we’ll need something to temporarily take some of our focus off […]
