First a personal note. I’ve been quiet around here due to some business travel followed by the worst kind of sickness. Two things I learned from my trip to Vegas: Fold aces preflop (lost with them in every way imaginable) and poker rooms and planes are flu breeding grounds! Ugh.

On to the topic du jour. While I was away we had a potential candidate to challenge Jennifer Garrison in a Democratic Primary for Secretary of State, Sharen Neuhardt. We had the ODP force Garrison out of the race and anoint their own candidate in hopes of avoiding a […]

Is there a delete button at Progress Ohio? Someone needs to use it.

Hell, give me admin privileges again and I’ll do it.

Saw this over at Harding’s PO blog. Glenn Beck apparently lost his arbitration on the rape and murdered a young girl in 1990 satire meme. The owner of the domain was obviously protected under the 1st Amendment. Funny Glenn never stood up for this right given how big he is on The Constitution and all.

In a big middle finger to Beck, Isaac Eiland-Hall sends him a letter doing a victory lap and then turning the domain over to him. Classic. LOL.

Still no word on whether Glenn Beck actually did rape and murder a young […]

I swear I woke up this morning and it was 2006. Like groundhog day. I find Joe Hallett misrepresenting blogs and (after having admitted reading them) belittling them in a way that left his own credibility in the matter wanting. I also find Brian Rothenberg stepping into the blogosphere and getting his ass handed to him.

Let’s take them one at a time. Joe first.

…and that’s just the good news.

The bad news? He did do some work for them and I’ve been hearing about it from just about everybody that heard it and knew I started PO with Rothenberg back in 2006. Countless emails and IMs that basically all start “dude, wtf?”.

So here’s the truth of the matter, which neither Naugle or Russo had right.

Leo Jennings was paid in some capacity to do some work but was definitely NOT “hired” by PO. He was never in an employee relationship with PO. It’s still one of the dumbest […]
