Bill Clinton is Coming to the Barley House

This is what I think about W. 6th.
  • "This is what I think about W. 6th."

Former President Bill Clinton will be dropping by the Warehouse District on September 14 for an appearance at the Barley House.

Will he be wearing a striped shirt?

Will he also think the street has become the epicenter of the douchenozzle universe?

Is it simply a cover mission to scope out the finest and loosest of Cleveland's women?

No, it's a fundraiser for Governor Ted Strickland's re-election campaign, though we're sure Bill can fit in some extracurricular activities in between glad-handing and bites of overpriced bar food.

The Plain Dealer reports:

The lunchtime fundraiser falls on the day of the first gubernatorial debate in Columbus and could cut into Strickland's preparations.

Clinton's relationship with Strickland, a former six-term congressman, dates back to the 1990s. Clinton has credited Strickland with casting decisive votes on such issues as the Family Medical Leave Act. Clinton is also thanking Strickland for his fierce support of Hillary Clinton in the 2008 presidential primary, in which Clinton defeated Barack Obama in Ohio.

The event is hosted by businessman Tony George (who co-hosted a fundraiser for John McCain and Sarah Palin in 2008) and by Lana Moresky, the area's top Democratic fundraiser for Hillary Clinton.

Kudos, however, to the Barley House for attempting to bridge the race gap that has threatened to destabilize the W. 6th area by inviting the second blackest President this nation's ever seen to spend some time there.
