Georgia has issue, man. Serious issues. This story is just an example:
Patrick Lanzo likes to generate negative attention, by openly displaying his ugly racism and hate in the most vile and public ways possible. The owner of a roadside bar in a small Georgia town, Lanzo recently erected a giant sign in front of his Ku Klux Klan themed speakeasy, with the message: ?Obama?s plan for health-care: Ni**er rig it.?
I don’t take to using the little ** to soften the hate. Pat’s sign says Nigger rig it. It even got him on CNN, where he lies about being […]Full Story... →
I. really. don’t. know. what. to. say:
Update: Tim’s video in which Ralph King denounces the Hitler sign and the Latin singing Larouchies. It’s always good to see those you battle with politically online in person. I always thought Ralph was a decent guy. One I disagree with pretty strongly and one who tends to get carried away at times, but a long ago conversation with him on the phone led me to believe he was not the nuttiest of wingnuts. Still owe you $20, Ralph. We should get a beer sometime. Thanks for the […]Full Story... →
And you think liberals are mounting a War on Christmas? Watch this monstrosity… if you dare. It’s bad enough to make you want to drown yourself in the eggnog bowl. After stopping the bleeding from your ears, first.
So, what’s a bigger attack on Christmas? Desiring that government not meddle with it and allow people to observe how they wish, or appropriating a classic carol for partisan political purposes… badly Ick.Full Story... →
This is astonishing.
I have now received three (3) student papers that discuss Iraq’s attack on the Twin Towers on 9/11. All three papers mention it as an aside to another point. I’ve had two papers on the virtue of forgiveness that argue that if we had just forgiven Iraq for the 9/11 attacks, we wouldn’t be at war right now. I just read a paper on the problem of evil which asked why God allowed “the Iraq’s” to attack us on 9/11.
The thing that upsets me most here is that the the students don’t just believe that […]Full Story... →
Are you freakin’ kidding me? Hunter was serious?

I hate driving traffic to RAB, but I can’t pass up this picture-perfect opportunity. Matty said:
But the Dispatch said:
“The renovation will be underwritten by private donations to the University Foundation, and no tax dollars will be used,” said James C. Schroeder, foundation president.
Maybe the students “don’t care” because they aren’t paying for it, chucklehead. Strickland’s tuition cap has nothing to do with the university renovating the president’s residence with private funds. Nor does it have anything to do with comments made by a former university president.
But don’t let that keep you from trying […]Full Story... →
When I finally got close to the front of the line at my polling place in 2004, a pollworker told me to cover my T-shirt. It had the words “Vote Explosion” on it.
Seeing as I had nothing to cover it with and had just spent 3 hours in line, I politely pointed out that there was no partisanship expressed by the shirt. Vote Explosion was just a loose group of friends registering folks to vote at rock shows. She replied that they were trying to avoid even the slightest possible implication of impropriety.
OK, fair enough. Polling places are supposed to be inner sanctums of nonpartisanhip. Neither voters nor pollworkers may wear political shirts, stickers, or buttons within a 100 foot radius. Although the words “Vote Explosion” aren’t explicitly partisan, neither are the words “Eagle Forum” or “MoveOn.” I think it was a wise move to err on the side of overzealousness, and simply prohibit T-shirts bearing all of the above.
The guy behind me in line loaned me his sweatshirt, and I was able to step forth to express my partisanship in the privacy of the voting booth. As an ongoing tribute of thanks to sweatshirt guy, ever since that day I’ve stowed an extra large, plain T-shirt in my purse whenever I go to vote – just in case a fellow voter is asked to cover up.
Until I read Monday’s Columbus Dispatch, it had never occurred to me that I might someday want to offer my spare shirt to a pollworker.Full Story... →
So, we here at PB have taken some heat for attacking Matt Naugle for his falsehoods and irrelevant personal attacks. I understand that some people think we are wasting our time, and to a certain extent, I understand that view.
But I also understand that the “most prominent right-wing blog in Ohio” has a responsibility – be a good citizen in the blogging community. Lying about the facts is not a part of good citizenship. Neither is attacking family members of politicians or bloggers. I think ignoring these attacks is a mistake. I believe that this kind of […]Full Story... →
I’m not exactly sure what Matt Naugle’s problem is, but he seems unable to resist implying that Ted Strickland is gay, and prefers younger men. Let’s not forget the innuendos about Strickland’s vacation with a staffer, and that his wife may not even live with him. Of course, all of these “allegations” are implied rather than said directly, and all done without any shred of evidence. Not that it matters in the final analysis – I couldn’t care less if we had a gay governor.
One might think that Naugle does this to attempt to discredit Strickland with the […]Full Story... →
