    Ohio think that Joe the non-Plumber makes sense, it is hard to gauge the native intelligence that is left in the state.

    •  Actually, it was very insignificant part (6+ / 0-)

      of the electorate. He lost in a massive landslide. The story behind that is all on the Republicans. Thanks to gerrymandering, the district isn't winnable by a Republican, so the sane candidate who was challenging Dennis Kucinich initially withdrew. Joe the Plumber was a sacrifice candidate. No one supported him or expected him to win.

      Jon Husted is a dick.
