    The Cincinnati area is very red. And the Ohio GOP is petrified of the Tea Party.

    Jon Husted is a dick.

        Most people would assume that if there was a political motivation behind target tea party groups, it would be because the people targeting the tea party are liberals. Those who are pointing out that Ohio is deep red are likely thinking that it was a mainstream Republican partisan who started it.

        I side with those why think the mistake was made because someone thought it made sense to target groups opposed to taxation. Then again, as there is some overlap between the TEAhadists and the Sovereign Citizen movement, the extra scrutiny may have started out with some justification.

        Workers of the world, unite! You have nothing to lose but your shackles. It is by the picket line and direct action that true freedom will be won, not by electing people who promise to screw us less than the other guy.
