Carnival of Ohio Politics Number 86

As I was searching for images related to number 86, even though I'm not a Steelers fan, this one caught my eye. Not just because it is number 86, it is my last name and I am a fan of the NFL but because football can be like politics. A quote attributed to John F. Kennedy says, "Politics is like football; if you see daylight, go through the hole". So off we go to see which Ohio bloggers score touchdowns this week.

First up is Mark Adams with a post written on As Ohio Goes, going into some of the reasons Why Weirauch Rocks. Then Mark turns his posting attention on Dispassionate Liberalism to the sport of baseball, Yankees Suck which is then followed by Yes, Yankees Still Suck. I'm guessing Mark isn't a Yankee fan...

From Thurber's Thoughts, Maggie Thurber shares a post on the Same Story Two Perspectives and she can't help pondering if she is the only one that sees the bias. Toledo's Mayor and his quest for Toledo to win the most livable City Award is the focus of the next two posts penned by Maggie, Toledo Mayor Begging for Money and Begging for $40,000 for Livcom.

Ben from the Keeler Political Report first posts his thoughts on Cleveland trying to block efforts for a new suburban on ramp in Lorain County if they can't get a share of the tax dollars, Cleveland is the Worst. Ben then shares an update with an outcome that he expected on a Cuyahoga Falls ballot issue with the news that Jennifer Brunner ruled with the Democrats.

Ohio Daily Blog the home of YellowDog Sammy heads into the 3D virtual reality world of Second Life to report on the presidential politicking happening there. If you have recently felt a squeeze when it comes to health costs, you aren't alone and YDS has the facts from the Ohio Health Policy Review. Still on the topic of health, Governor Strickland still has hopes to expand Medicaid coverage for children even if the veto of President Bush stands.

Daniel Jack Williamson from Word of Mouth highlights a guest blog from Bill Sturgill, candidate for Lorain School Board, "Election 2007: WoM Candidate Forum: Bill Sturgill (Lorain BOE)". Daniel also shared Henery Hawk's "Who Cares?" as the next recommended post from WOM followed by "If the election were held today . . ." by Loraine Ritchey.

King's Right Site delves into recent court decision where it's stated that State Senator Shirley Smith is not immune from civil action. Bad parenting is Ralph's next focus with two recent situations involving a mother and a father he hopes faces the full fury of the legal system. I'd have to say I share his hope.

For a moment when I saw Jill's first contribution from Writes Like She Talks and I saw the word "orgy", I did a double take, then I realized it was a bit of related to a political consultant orgy at UAkron's Bliss Institute of Applied Politics that fans of JMZ will be happy to know she's part of the panel. Next Jill wonders why no one is talking about Cleveland City Council member Mike Polensek's fear coming true after people focused on his chastising a teen for bad behavior. On the news of GE planning to shutter plants in Ohio Jill ponders what would happen if the legislature forced divestment?

In my part of the blogosphere over on Glass City Jungle, we've had a disturbing death of an infant who's mother did not use a car seat that has people wondering if she'll be charged. Still in the wondering department, Is Commissioner Ben Konop on the outside looking in is an issue I take a deeper look at.

Thank you to everyone who participated this week!

I think some might be mad about the picture..........ha

Jill said...

I'm telling you - the bar goes up every week - mostly on the image choices! ;)

Great job, Lisa Renee. :)

Mark W Adams said...

You have no idea how much the Robin Weirauch Rocks, or how much the Yankees Suck! ;-)

And yeah, axe that Steelers jersey.

Jeff said...

Great job, Lisa Renee! Thank you!

Although I'm still a fan of my childhood NFL team (Green Bay Packers) and not my current hometown team (Cleveland Browns), I'm painfully aware of the aversion toward the Pittsburgh Steelers in Ohio, or at least in this part of Ohio.

I say, bravo! Stir things up!

Lisa Renee said...

The Steeler's jersey was a risky move, but you'd be surprised at the number of fans they have here in NWO.

My favorite NFL team is actually the Dolphins, has been since before their perfect season.

Jeff I know quite a few fans of the Packers here too. Here in Toledo there might be more Lions fans than Browns fans...


Ben said...

Tough year for the Dolphins.

ohdave said...


The STEELERS?!!! Are you friggin kiddin me?????

Here's an alternative photo that's a little more Ohio-centric.


Lisa Renee said...

Dave, I could have gone with Michigan...(hehe)

Ben, it's been a rough year for the Dolphins for quite a few years, all I can hold on to is we still have the perfect season...though friends get tired of hearing me say that.
