The theme of this morning's blog posts: Ohio is really f&*king strange, and without a doubt, winning the "Ohio or Florida?" game this week.

Next stop: Columbus.

The governor of Ohio doesn't read Ohio newspapers.

That's fact, straight from the mouth of John Kasich himself. The exact quote: "I don't read newspapers in the State of Ohio."

We'll forgive his feeble grasp on the English language and assume he didn't mean that he doesn't read newspapers while he's physically within the geographic boundaries of Ohio, and that he really meant he doesn't read newspapers that are based in Ohio.

One could infer from the wording that he at least reads some newspapers, just not ones headquartered in the Buckeye State, but that's still a flabbergasting statement.

Why doesn't he read them? Via Ohio Capital Blog and Plunderbund, it's because it doesn't give him an "uplifting experience." Full video below.
