    I recently saw my U.S. Senator "circulating" through an exhibit on the history of a steel company strike that became violent that was sponsored by local unions. We were chatting and he was fascinated by this history. He's also legendary for frustrating his schedulers by stopping to talk to baggage handlers and hotel maids.

    I have real issues with the broad brush because I think it's part of the reason we don't get more better people.

    Jon Husted is a dick.

    •  Well yes, there are exceptions - Sherrod being one (5+ / 0-)

      Years ago I was at an Indians game. I was walking back to my seat and I noticed him sitting several rows behind me with his girls. I started over to him, then thought better of it. He wasn't there to meet the voters; he was just another dad taking his kids to a ballgame.

      The other notable thing about that was the seats were out in right field - not the cherry seats he could have gotten behind the dugout or home plate by throwing his weight around. He was out there in the bleachers with the rest of us.

      Reforms come from below. No man with four aces howls for a new deal.
      Keystone XL will raise gas prices!
