Joe the Plumber Poll Wrap

89% of you thought that Joe was getting the shaft again. Only one vote that Obama's peace takes precedence over all else. Mongo, you amaze even me. (Actually, I have no way of knowing who voted, much less who voted for what.)

Meanwhile, back in Ohio, the plot just keeps getting better. Vanessa Niekamp, the woman who called up Joe's child support records, is now alleging that her department deputy dictated precisely how she should cover up the activity. I'm no lawyer, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, so I'm thinking, obstruction of justice, a criminal offense. And what prize do we have for the clueless Ohio bureaucrats? Some jail time, maybe? Regardless, I'm not holding my breath that state employees will get more severe punishments than the private sector firings at Verizon for perusing Obama's cell phone usage.


  1. I think the Ohio civil servants should get a bailout. Why not? Everyone else is getting one.

  2. But the Bailout should only happen in order to bail them out of jail.

    - One ex-pat Ohioian angry as all get out over the failure of Ohio to take a stand for ethics.

  3. Every day I become more and more convinced that our problems are cultural and not economic or legal. In this case, no one will be held to account for their actions. It sounds a lot like the looters in Atlas Shrugged who keep repeating the phrase, "It's not my fault!"
