Has a presidential candidate sang "We're strong for Toledo" before? Obama won't

While you may say McCain is old, I don't think Obama or Kerry has ever song the song about Toledo. This story, which I mentioned last month or so, showed up in the New York Times today.

Strickland to be vice presidential choice regardless of nominee?

This in from Real Clear Politics.com:

A footnote: Support is growing in Democratic ranks for Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland as vice president. He would bring to the ticket maturity (66 years old), experience (six terms in Congress) and moderation (rated "A" by the National Rifle Association). He is very popular in Ohio, a state Republicans must carry to elect a president.

McCain's pastor?

McCain now knows "We're Strong for Toledo"?

From the Wall Street Journal. Ok who taught McCain and Carly Fiorina? Fess up.

McCain Raises $400K in Toledo

Sen. McCain raised $400,00 at an event held at the Toledo Club Tuesday evening. What does this mean for the voter of average means? To me, it shows that Sen. McCain will not be as eager to represent the average person’s issues as president as he may claim during the campaign.

How Effective Can Konop Be Now

Following todays commissioners meeting and the announcement by Oregon mayor Marge Brown that she will run against Konop when he is up for re-election, how effective can Konop be as a commissioner? What experience did he bring to county government when elected in the first place?

Haynam, Stainbrook, and Cross oh my!!!

F**d LeF*****e of WSPD will have Doug Haynam, Jon Stainbrook, and Gene Cross as guests tomorow.

Posted with tongue deep in cheek by F**d LeF***** of F**d LeF***** and the Morning News on 1370 WSPD.

What is the Number One Best Reason to vote for any of the Candiates? And Worst?

I realize I have been very negative about all the presidential candiates. And I also realize, that I am not the brightest bulb in the box & most political & economic things are way over my head.
