Ken Blackwell is Desperate (Don't Ya Love It!)
In August, I let you know about how Blackwell operatives were engaging in telephone push-polling in Ohio. Now, soon-to-be-private-citizen Blackwell is engaging in a particularly nasty innuendo campaign against his Democratic opponent Ted Strickland. I heard Blackwell repeating this bilge on Hugh Fuckwit's radio show.
Blackwell sounded optimistic on Hewitt's show but it ain't gonna happen: The latest CBS News/New York Times poll has Strickland leading by 25 points. When a candidate is that far behind, it's too much of a deficit to be made up by cheating (as Blackwell did with the Ohio presidential vote in 2004). Let's hope that when Strickland becomes governor that he does a full investigation. Blackwell belongs behind bars.
Note: The Patriot Project has an informative post on the nature of push-polling.
