With less than two weeks left before the mid-term elections, it really shouldn't surprise anyone that the Democrats are behaving like, well. . .Democrats.
9th District- Marcy Kaptur over Rich Iott- 60-39%
-it's a shame that the 9th is saddled with two very flawed candidates. At least, Marcy won't be sitting next to the gavel anymore.
5th District- Bob Latta over Caleb Finkenbiner and Brian Smith 63-35-2%
-no surprise here.
Governor- John Kasich over Ted Strickland
The Tea Party and Himmler's Black Legion
By Omer Bartov
The revelation that Rich Iott, the Republican candidate for the 9th Congressional District seat in Ohio and a Tea Party favorite, has been in the habit of dressing up as a Waffen-SS soldier, is just one more sign of the heroic ignorance that characterizes large sectors of American politicians, the media that covers them, and the public that votes for them.

Joshua Green - Joshua Green is a senior editor of The Atlantic and a weekly political columnist for the Boston Globe.
Why would a national publication be remotely interested in a candidate in the Ohio 9th Congressional race? It doesn't take someone with the IQ of a brick to figure out that someone had to have tipped off Atlantic Monthly about Iott's re-enactments and that someone was probably involved with or a supporter of the Kaptur campaign.
Now, the definition of McCarthyism: 1) The practice of publicizing accusations of political disloyalty or subversion with insufficient regard to evidence. 2) The use of unfair investigatory or accusatory methods in order to suppress opposition.

Richie Iott dressed as a Nazi
While West Toledo is suffering with a Rat influx Sylvania Township is suffering from another form of RAT, Kaptur sign thieves
Yes, its true! A new form of unethical RAT has invaded Sylvania Township streets. The RATS are of one partisan group who refuse to respect those of a differing point of view. Today October 7th whole streets in Sylvania were stripped of Marcy Kaptur signs leaving only Richie Rich Iotts to radiate his poison. Is this the type of unethical criminals we want to run our country?
