Happy Leap Day, Everybody!
- Leap Day magic is all around. Can’t you feel it? Unfortunately, due to Obama’s worldwide recession, there will be no Leap Day bonuses this year. Besides today being an extra day, other things happen every four years. This year there’s the Olympics in London. The Presidential Elections is now only “250” days away. And our Bill Clinton says “Thank goodness, BB&BJ Day comes every year on March 20.”
- Everybody’s still talking about the Oscars. All those Facebook fanatics who can tell you what every celebrity was wearing at the Oscars last year still can’t name Ohio’s two U.S. Senators. Those Dumbed-down, Self-absorbed, Media-influenced, Celebrity-obsessed, Politically-correct Uninformed Short-attention-span people still get to vote, too!
Hurley the Historian says on this Leap Date in 1940, Hattie McDaniel was the first black actress to win an Oscar for her portrayal of “Mammy,” a housemaid and former slave in “Gone with the Wind.” How’s that for another Black History Moment? Maybe that’s why our Quote for Today Committee chose Hattie’s “I’d rather play a slave than be one.”
- In other Black History Madness, our Late Night Jokewatcher says President Obama talked about rising gas prices today. He focused on the positive things his administration has done when it comes to energy prices. So, in other words, it was the shortest speech he’s ever given.
On the “Late Late Show,” Craig Ferguson says, “Obama is trying to come up with a new campaign slogan that would replace ‘hope and change.’ He’s thinking of going with ‘I am not Mitt Romney.’ ”
And Isn’t It Ironic? Obama’s food stamp program, which is part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever. Meanwhile, the National Park Service asks says “Please Do Not Feed the Animals” because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.
How do you starve an Obama supporter? Just hide their food stamps under their work shoes.
You know the real problem with Obama jokes? His followers don’t think they’re funny and, the rest of us don’t think they’re jokes.
- And with only six more days until the big Super Duper Tuesday Primary Elections on March 6, why have only 5,514 Hamilton County voters cast early ballots so far? Everybody’s waiting for all those Fishwrap idiotorials and e-mails from COAST so they know which candidates to vote for.
- In Ohio’s Second Congressional District, that well-funded Super PAC is still trying to get the truth out about “Mean Jean” Schmidt. Their robocalls don’t much care which other candidate you vote for, as long as it’s not That Corrupt Evicted Lying Plagiarizing Meddling Overblown Bought-and-paid-For Tax-and-Spend Wrinkle-Puss RINO Bitch-in-a-Ditch.
Like everybody running in the GOP Primary, our Bitch-in-a-Ditch calls herself a “Conservative.” But how many actual conservatives got elected to Congress the first time around with the benefit of $37,000 in DemocRAT Congressional Campaign Committee money? (Source: 1 2 3 contributions)
- Over at the Courthouse, Hamilton County Social Services workers are in training for “Child Neglect Awareness.” No kidding! Maybe that’s why Award Winning Photo Illustrator Artis Conception is showing us the kind of training they’ve had up till now.
The Cincinnati City Mess
What a bunch of chitlins! African American Elizabeth A. Rogers, aka Liz Rogers, is the beneficiary of one million dollars from city of Cincinnati funds to open up a second soul food restaurant named Mahogany in The Banks area. Rogers is currently the co-owner of a restaurant of that name in Hamilton, Ohio.
When announcing with great fanfare the huge financial giveaway, Cincinnati mayor Mallory and his Kentucky boy city mangler, Dough Boy Honey, didn’t mention Liz Rogers has a financial history of delinquent tax liens and legal judgments against her. Rogers had seven judgments against her in Butler County, including tax liens from the Ohio Department of Taxation for amounts up to $6,700. Reportedly, when these facts were recently revealed, Rogers suddenly paid the liens. Imagine that. And she’s mad anyone dares to mention her financial issues.
Cincinnati city spokesbabe Meg Olberding said the city was aware of Rogers’ financial problems but the city’s commitment to “diversity” in development came first. Some would say that’s a million dollars down the drain for a city strapped to meet its operating expenses. Does Liz Rogers serve baloney at Mahogany restaurant?
What else would you expect from your brand new extreme Liberal City Clown-cil!

More Politics Unusual
- Republicans for Higher Taxes report that Springdale Mayor “Royal” Doyle Webster and the Springdale City Council unanimously endorse the big property tax increase on the ballot for the Princeton School District. Princeton already spends more money than over 98% of school districts in Ohio, but to these tax hikers it’s still not enough. It sounds to us that Princeton needs a fiscally responsible school board, not another tax increase.
- Our Clermont Crusader says the Clermont County Tea Party is rallying around wealthy businessman Jack Kuntz as a replacement for Archie Wilson for the vacant Clermont County Commissioner seat. The bartenders and waitresses at O’Charley’s in Milford say that Mr. Kuntz is at least as colorful as Archie Wilson. Stay tuned.
- In Anderson Township, Darryl “Anybody Who Votes for a School Levy is Stupid” Parks says controversy is heating up over the Forrest Gump School District’s humongous tax hike so township property owners of $200,000 houses can pay $2,000-a-year to support the greedy teachers and administrators.
And somebody wants to know for what possible reason are the School Nazis keeping a data base of all those people with vote no signs in their yards? Let’s hope those people don’t have kids in the schools.
And are these nice pro levy supporters really planning to boycott Salem Hardware, just for handing out vote no signs? What happened to freedom of speech and the Constitution anyhow? As far as Liberals are concerned, Conservatives should just shut the hell up! But if you’re a gerbil stuffing tattoo wearing freak, you’re OK.
- Arn Bortz’s e-mail reply is an eye-catcher: “Sorry but I’ll be out of the office from 2/25 through 3/5. I won’t be checking emails or voicemail. If I did, that wouldn’t be much of a vacation would it?”
- Meanwhile, at yesterday’s meeting of the Conservative Agenda, Political Insiders were asking Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane when Anderson Township residents who are not “Persons of Consequence” can see CFK-TV’s “Political Science Theater 2012” concept on Anderson Community Television, which includes the disclaimer that says: “Opinions expressed do not necessarily represent those of the Anderson Community Television (ACT), the ACT Board of Directors, the staff of ACT, or the community governments or the cable company.”
“According to the CFK-TV Production Crew (Only) Advisory,” Kane explained, “It’ll be shown in prime time Wednesday night at 10:30 PM on Channel 18. Remember those people who want to be celebrities on TV can send us their creative concepts and YouTube links to CFK-TV@whistleblower-newswire.com.”
- Bluegrass Bureau Chief Ken CamBoo says The Blower has received hundreds of calls asking if we will follow The Fishwrap and ask our subscribers of to pay for our digital communications. Ken says when The Fishwrap broke the news that it is planning to charge for its digital service, 150 people who occasionally read that blog cancelled their subscription. Ken says he’s surprised that 150 people still read the blog. And as every good DemocRAT knows, the best things in life are free, especially when somebody else is paying for it.
- The CamBoozler says nobody was really surprised when former Tea Party gubernatorial candidate Phil Moffett endorsed current Tea Party favorite Thomas Massie, especially the other six candidates in that gaggle running for Goof Doofus’ Fourth District seat in Congress on the May 22 Bluegrass Primary in only 83 more days.
Now Trooper Babe Alecia Webb-Edgington, Boondoggle County Judge-Executive Gary Moore, Crestwood teacher Brian Oerther, Fort Mitchell business consultant Tom Wurtz, Sparta lawyer Marc Carey, and Crestwood building contractor Walter Christian Schumm will have to get their own endorsements.
- Gas prices increased in Kentucky last week, climbing 19.2 cents per gallon to an average of $3.68 per gallon at the start of the week, according to the gasoline price website KentuckyGasPrices.com. That’s not earth-shattering news. Kentucky was always going to be a Red State.
- Judge Once Moore says now that we will not have a casino at Turfway Park to keep the racing industry alive in Kentucky, maybe we could use Federal Highway Funds to support the horse industry because horses are a form of transportation just like trails are.
- Ken CamBoo says if it takes casino gambling to keep Turfway Park alive, wouldn’t that be considered welfare? Oh wait, you say most of those people working there are on welfare already? Ken said ask a Boondoggle County cop what area of Boondoggle County is the most unsafe. Bingo, oops, that’s gambling also.
- Finally, why does the Cabal out to Destroy Eric “Eric “Call Me Crazy,” Big Mouth, Most Sanctioned, Ambulance Chaser, No Count of a Radio Host, Shameless Self Promoter, Willie Wannabe, Why Haven’t I Been Disbarred, Who Likes Bulldogs and Failed Roadhouse Operator Deters want to know the exact date “Crazy Eric” began his 61 day suspension. Maybe they want The Blower to start counting down those days too.
