Carnival #156

Edition #156 is dedicated to the former NBC television show The West Wing. The show ran for seven seasons, from September 1999 through May of 2006. There were 154 episodes and two special episodes, for a total of 156.

First up this week is Buckeye Punditeers. What about someone who isn't a typical "suspect" for Ohio Senator? BP lists off key founders who weren't career politicians. However, as noted, the parties love how things are now because there is control in predictably. Next, what are the similarities between Jennifer Brunner and Ken Blackwell?

*Buckeye Punditeers is also debuting a new feature: BP After Hours....

Roland Hansen Commentary wants to know if Ben Konop has any loyalty to the voters, or does he just use them to further his own career? This thought comes as it appears another Konop promise will be broken. Next, is Toledo mayoral candidate Jim Moody a political spiderman?

One post from Buckeye RINO. ORP Chairman Kevin DeWine made a visit to the Erie County Republicans. Daniel Jack Williamson was able to ask DeWine a few questions one on one and he reports back on it.

"Despite the economy's downturn in 2008, the sale of hard liquor increased in Ohio," we learn at Free Market Politics. Sounds about right. Jeff presents us with a "glass half full / glass half empty" post.....but what does it really mean and what will the smart money do? I wish I was "smart money."

The role of Ohio's blogosphere is always evolving, writes Jill at Writes Like She Talks. She offers up some advice to candidates or potential candidates on how to engage all of us. Next, Jill thinks and states why people should give up the "should stay here" mantra when it comes to the 2010 Senate race here (stemmed from a comment she made on another blog). Third, a post that says the Ohio legislature should incorporate media literacy into K-12 education curriculum.

Why is the Fairness Doctrine exclusive to only AM Radio, Just Blowing Smoke asks. How is a one Clear Channel radio station in Toledo the same as the Toledo Blade? Tim Higgins for Secretary of the Treasury? Tim is joking, but the post does have some serious questions relating to the debt and circular lending pattern we find ourselves in.

Three posts from Conservative Culture. Ignacio Ramos (freed border patrol agent) was in Ohio in prison. They are now free but under house confinement for now. CC hopes for a return to normalcy for Ramos and Jose Compean. In a not so typical alliance, CC agrees with George McGovern. Lastly, one liberal clergy's protest. This clergy sounds good for worldly behavior but does this represent what he is supposed to stand for in the church?

NeoCon Panic Attacks has a response to this Progress Ohio article. The argument states that hemp is the universal solvent of economic disparity.

Tom Blumer of Bizzy Blog wants to know why the Cleveland Plain Dealer picked who it did to be local "housing experts," two community organizers and a government official.

What is the best way to frame last night's speech and the media and blog reactions than with lyrics from a Broadway show? There is only one choice, says Divided We Stand, United We Fall.

At the Keeler Report, Peter Lawson Jones announces that he is going to run for Senate. Well he didn't announce at my site, I just talked about it. I gave Dennis Willard of the ABJ a sarcastic comment about his Democratic Senate Primary column as well. Additionally, I updated the Ohio Politics page to reflect the new dynamics of Brunner vs. Fisher.

Thanks Everyone!

Great job,as usual. One cannot help by be a little envious (regardless of the agenda being pushed) of the talent and the skills to write this show as well as they did for such a sustained period.
