Reader: Judge John Plough is the New Kucinich

Here’s one caller’s response to last week’s story, “Judge Nasty,” a glimpse into one of America’s most terrifying judges, John Plough: “I remember the judge while I was a professor at Kent State, obviously in Portage County, and you know it reminds me of the famous saying, I believe, by lord Acton – power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. And here’s an idiot! I mean, my God! The man is a fool! And he doesn’t know it! You know, I’m an independent voter, but I compare him to Denny Kucinich. You know, Denny doesn’t know he’s an idiot, but then again, this is what happens when you have power. And, you know, it’s sad. It’s a sad state of affairs that there are not the proper checks and balances available to say how do you stop clowns like this. Do you wait for the next election? There’s got to be a better process. The man is a jerk and he doesn’t know it. That’s the tragedy, isn’t it? When you’re an idiot and you don’t know that you are the court jester. Thank you.”
