McCain's Inaction Speaks Louder Than Words

0 Comments · Wednesday, July 23, 2008
If the way Sen. John McCain is running his presidential campaign in Greater Cincinnati is any indication, maybe it's a good thing that he's trailing Barack Obama in all the polls. McCain's judgment is under scrutiny again after he appointed Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters as his campaign's southwest Ohio regional chairman despite a record of questionable actions.

A local judge put the smack down last week after a defendant mumbled that it was bullshit that he'd have to stay in jail until his court date. Hamilton County Common Pleas Judge Robert Ruehlman thought that an alleged Northside Taliband gang member saying "bullshit" in his courtroom was actually bullshit itself, so he sentenced him to six months.  

Obama Should Revive Federal Writers Project

1 Comment · Wednesday, December 3, 2008
In recent months, the government has pledged hundreds of millions of dollars to help out banks, investment houses, insurance companies and others ensnared by the mortgage-crisis-induced financial meltdown. Auto companies might be next. Our new president should consider reviving the Federal Writers Project, a Great Depression-combating New Deal program that put some 6,600 people, not all of them trained writers, to work.

We at WWE! don't always try our best. But our journalistic indifference results in harmless poop jokes and curse words, unlike Cincinnati Enquirer reporters, whose bad sense of humor often results in the public embarrassment of poor people.  

Lunch With Andrea

I couldn't believe Andrea was putting more salt on her French fries. We were having lunch together at the Frisch's on Glenway Avenue. She got the Big Boy platter but paid more money and substituted onion rings for the cole slaw. I had the salad bar that features, of course, iceberg lettuce.

America has spoken. Our next president is Barack Obama, and although I didn't vote for him I accept him as my president and hope for success unprecedented in the history of the United States. God knows we need success right now. I hope he's up to the task and leads all Americans to a renewed prosperity and continued safety.

A Catholic church in South Carolina has some new rules for its parishioners who voted for Barack Obama for president: They have to tell God they're sorry before taking communion again.  

Getting It Right on Election Coverage

Credulity does not suit journalists or our audiences. We’ve moved from believing something because “I read it in the paper” to “I heard it on the radio” to “I saw it on the Internet.” It’s never so dangerous as when a comment or story is credible. It makes sense. It’s the kind of thing that What’s His Name would say. Long before the Internet, people were inventing or repeating quotes and attributing them to famous people to add authority to their arguments.

I'm writing to extend my sincere appreciation for your support during this campaign. When Michelle and I undertook this journey more than 21 months ago, we knew that we had to have your help in order for this movement to succeed.

Helping Barack Obama and his kids choose the best pet for the White House

1 Comment · Wednesday, November 12, 2008
I know that change starts with me, and so I've been wracking my brain trying since Election Day to figure out how to become a better American. Then I thought of a quote Barack Obama said to his daughters during his victory speech: "You have earned the new puppy that's coming with us to the White House." That's it! Take one of mine.
