    The unions withdrew their endorsement and explained why. I then wrote that Book had agreed to withdraw from the race rather than press the issue. You then accused me of making it up but before you hit send, Book's withdrawal was announced.

    If you had any question about the withdrawal you could have called the Tri-State Building Trades Council, and they would have talked your ear off about Book's daddy. But instead you prefer to mislead the DKOS community by saying you couldn't find it in an Ohio paper -- even though many south Ohio papers have no online access.

    Of course, I could disclose that Ted Strickland was the one who gave the order for Book's withdrawal, so the true allegations would not haunt Strickland's campaign. But no, I think I'll save that one for October.

    In the meaantime you go on saying that Book withdrew because his campaign was failing -- exactly the opposite of what you said before he announced his withdrawal, when you claimed he would win the primary handily.

    That actually makes the story about Strickland giving the orders more interesting.

    •  What SOUTHERN Ohio Papers DON'T have internet? (0+ / 0-)

      The Portsmouth Daily Times is online.  So is the Community Common.  So is the community paper in Wheelersburg.  As is the Pike County paper and the Ironton Tribune.

      In fact, I can't think of a single paper in that area that ISN'T online.

      Seriously, try again.

      Yeah, you have sources.  Crazy "Ohiobama" who embarassed the new Mayor of Portsmouth by his anti-nuclear rantings at a SODI meeting.   I bet she's still taking your calls, too.
