Chris Redfern's Swear Jar

Thats a nice fuckin smile you got there, Chris. Oh shit, thats $1 to the swear jar.
  • That's a nice fuckin' smile you got there, Chris. Oh shit, that's $1 to the swear jar.

Last week at a rally for the new health-care reform bill, Ohio Democratic Party Chair Chris Redfern not so delicately referred to opponents of the plan as “fuckers.”

No surprise that Redfern scored with his audience — he was addressing steelworkers in the eastern Ohio border town of Clarington. But he also drew a fresh round of fire from the conveniently puritanical Ohio Republican Party.

“Ohio Democrats have clearly lost it before they’ve lost it,” Republican spokesman John McClelland told a Clarington TV station, demanding an apology from Redfern. “It’s unfortunate that a few bad poll numbers have them lashing out at voters with name-calling and profanity. Let’s show a little class.”

Redfern, whose first words after “hello” are “have you made a donation yet?”, deftly fashioned his blooper into an innovative fund-raising opportunity: He’s posted “Redfern’s Swear Jar” on the Ohio Democrats’ website and invites all of you f**kers to fill it.
