BCS Sinking Into Laughability-Too Dumb To Be So Smart

Auburn? Laughing my ass off on the floor rolling.

Ohio State #11? Oh, maybe Boise State can end up #1 by beating the Columbus School for Girls field hockey team.

OTOH, Alabama still #7? Oh maybe they can climb to just behind Auburn by losing to Verde Valley School chess team by less than 13 moves.

The BCS is a joke, even by non-geek standards, and should be taken to the wood shed and left. Alone. Penniless. Shamed.

Who Is Trying To Buy Ohio's Gov Election With The $2.5 M Instant Special Interest Group "Our Future Ohio"?

The Democrats are flying a false flag about foreign money in American politics naming the COC. They know it's a lie. We know it's a lie. The press refuses to name it for what it is, a lie.

After having this lie hoisted up the political flagpole, the media rolls over and goes to sleep when a group, funded by secret money, starts putting up Huey Long demagogue ads about candidate John Kasich. The ads are shameless. Who cares? Not the media. If the once great Columbus Dispatch wanted a story to actually increase subscription rates they might want to find out who is funding the sleaze group "Our Future Ohio" being fronted by Strickland/Fisher/Union hack Alan Melamed. They won't. At least not in time for voters to make an informed decision.

Joe Hallett commentary: Election notebook has some interesting tidbits

• Hypocrisy is bipartisan. On Monday, Democratic U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown held a news conference decrying "the growing problem of anonymous money fueling American elections" and touting his co-sponsorship of a bill that would require independent groups such as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce to disclose the names of donors.

The same day, Democratic lobbyist Alan Melamed, a friend and political ally of Brown, acknowledged the creation of a new independent group, Our Future Ohio, to spend $2.5 million on TV ads supporting Strickland and other Democrats. He declined to identify the donors, and the nonprofit is not required to disclose them.

This is what the Columbus Dispatch has become. A day late and a dollar short publication written by bought and paid for writers like Joe Hallet. That is a sad end for what was once called "Ohio's Greatest Hometown Newspaper." The Wolf family must regret losing control.

So, since the voter won't get any assistance on this, let's all ask, "Who is trying to buy the Ohio governor's race by funding Our Future Ohio"? I'll bet it isn't Ohio voters. Not with Strickland and Fisher involved. Their involvement screams underhanded, possibly illegal, funding. It is how they do business. They lie.
Who is paying for Our Future Ohio and making Alan Melamed and his staff and cronies rich? Even with all those millions, I betcha they can't afford to tell the truth.
Ohio is tired of being lied to and Melamed and Our Future Ohio are not telling us the truth. For that alone our vaunted State Attorney General should shut them down. Yeah, like that is going to happen. Why bite the hand that feeds you, eh?
