Democrats

Remember when the Dems said the Tea Party would undue the GOP this cycle

Another Dem Governor candidate now must answer some tough questions.

I initially thought that the Dems might gain a Governorship or two this cycle as the GOP would be entirely focused on the Senate and Governorships are harder races to "nationalize" but now with Ohio now probably a "Safe GOP" keep and this new news about Burke plagiarizing her campaign platform that takes two of the possible flips off the table.

Voter Fraud does not exist!!!! But wait.....

There is no such thing as Voter Fraud. It doesn't happen. It's a figment of your Republican imagination. Voter ID laws are only to prevent minorities from voting.

Another Crackerjack idea from the OWS crowd

Earlier this week I joked that about an Occupy Best Buy movement about people camping out for Black Friday deals. Apparently the idea to occupy stores during black friday has hit the OWS movement.

This is just further proof that no one needs to combat the OWS movement. They are their own worst enemy.

#9? C'mon we can pass Akron and Detroit. We just have to believe.

Toledo made yahoo's featured section today. While I'm glad we're in the top ten I think we can do better than #9. Detroit is #3 and Akron is #6. We can easily pass them if we try hard enough.

If the article makes you mad just blame the local GOP who've been in power driving Toledo down for so long.

And now for something completely different! This made me laugh.

Completely out of left field, but this made me laugh.

Americans are ready for the third party.

In a recent WSJ/NBC poll (http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2010/05/12/wsjnbc-poll-does-the-two-party-...) Americans are ready for a third party. With both the democrats and republicans taking the country down a spend happy road filled full of massive spending, enormous debt and entitlements for all; they are having a party at the expense of the American citizens and we'll pay the high price for their actions for decades to come.

Poll Shows Plurality of Americans are Independent

Dianna Heitz reported this on Politico.com yesterday:

"The percentage of adults identifying as independents has swelled to match its highest point in 70 years, according to the biannual values survey from the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, while the percentage of self-identified Republicans fell to its lowest mark in at least 25 years.

Thirty-nine percent of respondents self-identified as independents, compared with 33 percent who considered themselves Democrats and 22 percent who identified as Republicans.

Race for that shower on the 22nd Floor

So Maumee-resident Keith Wilkowski has officially lined up at the starting line for the race to the 22nd floor office in One Government Center.

What do you think?

Who, if anyone, might be interested in running against him for the Democrat Party endorsement? Who could possibly run on the Republican ticket?
