NY Times: Blackwell's a Weenie

Posted By on Wed, Oct 18, 2006 at 1:38 PM

In breaking news reported by The New York Times, gubernatorial hopeful Ken Blackwell has been ruled an idiot. A Times editorial titled "And the Winner is . . . Me" blasts Blackwell and a supporter who is trying to have opponent Ted Strickland disqualified on a possible voter-registration technicality. The editorial board also asserts that having the state's election boss run for its highest office is perhaps not the best idea. "Voters in Ohio can be forgiven if they feel they have been beamed out of the Midwest and dropped into a third-world autocracy," they write. In a related story, The Times reports that the Cleveland schools could "maybe use a little tinkering." -- Lisa Rab
