Steelers fan Kasich is clueless

In pitching for his Issue 2 (SB5), Governor John Kasich made this blunder:

“We never thought (former Cleveland Browns quarterback) Bernie Kosar would bring the Browns back and win that big championship game,” Kasich said.

Kasich, a Steelers fan who grew up in suburban Pittsburgh, apparently didn’t know that Kosar never won a championship game with the Browns, going 0-3 in AFC title tilts with trips to the Super Bowl on the line.

No wonder this guy is such a terrible governor. How could we elect a Steelers fan?

Richard Cordray gets a big job:

President Obama nominated Richard Cordray, the former attorney general of Ohio, to officially have your back. If and when Cordray is confirmed, he’ll run the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the agency created last summer to defend consumers against abusive practices by banks and other financial institutions.

The article goes on to analyze why Cordray was selected. Many expect him to run for governor of Ohio in 2014, so this can be a big stepping stone for him.

Just when you think Dennis Kucinich has some common sense, you have him saying ridiculous things again. His latest loony statement has him suggesting that President Obama’s Libya strikes might be an impeachable offense. Good grief . . .

Politico has an interesting tidbit on how some are hoping to draft Drew Carey to run for the US Senate from Ohio to take on Sherrod Brown in 2012. Carey made some noise recently when he produced a series of videos with Reason, a libertarian think tank, on how to fix Cleveland.
