Esquire smacks Blackwell

Posted By on Fri, Oct 13, 2006 at 4:08 PM

The new issue of Esquire endorses elves Kucinich and DeWine, but at least nails Blackwell spot on
The November issue of Esquire, which hits newsstands this week, devotes 17 pages to endorsements for the upcoming election. It's an odd choice for a mag that usually ponders such weighty issues as whether one can catch a cold from giving a blow job (one apparently cannot) and whether or not blind people "see" anything when they dream (depends who you ask). And I'm not sure I'd recommend it as a voting guide, seeing that they endorse two veteran Keebler Elves (DeWine and Kucinich). But give the editors credit: They pretty much nail our fine state's race for governor. "Ken Blackwell is a religious and cultural reactionary, a supporter of absurd tax cuts for Ohio's wealthiest, and the overseer of the at least questionable if not illegal Ohio voter irregularities in the 2004 presidential elections — but he's black. Which makes it all okay! At least according to the GOP spin. The reality is he should not be elected to anything by anybody." They leave out his penchants for fag-bashing and stealing kids' bikes, but other than that, they're pretty spot on — Joe P. Tone
