Why did Kaptur say no to WSPD?

Why did Kaptur say no to WSPD?
Toledo Blade letter-to-the-editor
Sunday October 24th
Quote from letter written by Laurie A Bahnsen:
"It makes sense to have WSPD-AM, 1370, sponsor an Iott/Kaptur debate before the Nov. 2 election. But I was told by Brian Wilson, a host on WSPD, that Miss Kaptur refused. If Mr. Iott has no problem participating in debates sponsored by The Blade and the Toledo Free Press, why did she refuse a WSPD-sponsored debate?"


Auburn #1, Michigan State #2, Missouri #3: American Heartland Bar and Grill College Football Top 30- Week 8

Co-Games of the Week:
#2 Auburn 24, #4 LSU 17
-Quarterback Cameron Newton delivers a Heisman-worthy performance for #2 Auburn.
#5 Missouri 36, #1 Oklahoma 27
-Coach Gary Pinkel gets his signature win and the Tigers get the Sooners ‘monkey’ off their back. Despite the AP, Harris, and BCS rankings, this was not an upset. One, if you looked at Missouri’s schedule, they were way underanked to begin with. Two, the Sooners deserved to be in the #1 slot because of the schedule and wins. However, there were chinks in the armor and Missouri was able to take advantage of them in Columbia.

Mickey Mouse Discovers the Government Cartoon Conspiracy Against Glenn Beck

Glenn Beck's Response

Food for thought

‎‎"A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men.

Democrat Election Shenanigans (I know, big surprise.)

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

Michael Miller's, "Iott should exit, stage reich" is not alone

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.

FIve Myths About Sarah Palin

From Matthew Continetti's article in the Washington Post.

1. Palin cost McCain the 2008 election.

"She didn't. CNN's 2008 national exit poll, for example, asked voters whether Palin was a factor when they stepped into the voting booth. Those who said yes broke for McCain 56 percent to 43 percent.

The Middle of the Road Radicals

What's Wrong With Nazi Reenacting

Joshua Green - Joshua Green is a senior editor of The Atlantic and a weekly political columnist for the Boston Globe.

Left-Wing McCarthyism

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.

Is Rich Iott misrepresenting the truth?

Last night debate Laura Emerson of WUPW's News Dept. produced a FEC Federal Election Commission form of a $500 donation to the RNC by Rich Iott. On the form Rich Iott states his occupation as "soldier". When confronted Rich had no explanation he admitted he was not a veteran and not employed as a soldier.
