The Day Hamilton County Really Turned Blue
Hurley the Historian says many people may not realize it, but today is a very important anniversary in Hamilton County, Ohio, because nine years ago, RINOs at 700 Walnut Street proceeded past the point of no return in their masochistic “Long March” towards the “Bluing of Hamilton County” (which The Whistleblower had actually predicted ten-and-a-half years ago.) Chairman Mao would’ve been proud. Obama’s landslide in November 2008 was redundant. June 8, 2008 was the date our RINOs “Wandering in the Wilderness” had officially begun.
Ever since local Republicans got their asses kicked in the 2006 and 2007 elections, The Whistleblower had been searching for signs that local party leaders had somehow figured out why they lost and had come up with a plan to correct their mistakes before November 2008.
Finally, after Disgraced former Temporary Hamilton County GOP Party Boss George Vincent had been sent packing, we hoped we’d never again see anything like that sleazy, unprecedented, last-minute backroom deal Vincent made with Demo-Labor Party Boss Tim Burka to allow each other’s county-wide and judicial candidates to run unopposed.
We were even told it had been a humongous mistake for the Party of Reagan to endorse Devious DemocRAT Hamilton County Commissioners Odd Todd Opportune’s and David A. Pepper’s Super-sized $900 million Feel-Good-Social Programs Jail Tax Scam that would also have included a Memorial Hoosegow for our Senile GOP Sheriff Simon E. Leis.
And allowing Hamilton County GOP’s official spokesman, WLW Hate Radio Trash Talker Bill Cunningham, to embarrass the Hamilton County Republican Party nationally, was not exactly a sign that local party leaders had learned from the lessons of history.
It was no wonder those funny guys at “Not the Fishwrap” had come up with their “Save Us Alex” video, and card-carrying Conservative Gary Boldwater won that week’s Whistleblower’s Limerick Contest with:
This year when Hamilton County turns “Blue”
The RINOS won’t know what to do.
Those pitiful sobs,
They will have to find jobs.
Maybe then they will all get a clue.
Those “Not the Fishwrap” videos, like so many other things during the past twenty-six years in The Blower, have turned out to be pretty prophetic. It’s no wonder those consultants at NoMoreFreeAdvice.com can’t figure out why nobody’s been smart enough to try to hire The Blower to tell them what’s going to happen.
So At Yesterday’s Meeting of the Conservative Agenda…
Political Insiders were all asking Beloved Whistleblower Publisher Charles Foster Kane why the RINOs’ total abandonment of principles on June 8, 2008 was such a sure sign that Hamilton County had passed the point of no return on its way to become totally “Blue” in November of that year.
“Because that was the fateful date of that fund-raising brunch for our Finally Defeated, Corrupt, Evicted, Lying, Plagiarizing, Meddling, Overblown, Bought-And-Paid-For, Tax-And-Spend, Wrinkle-Puss RINO Bitch-In-A-Ditch Mean Jean Schmidt,” Kane said.
“That was no big deal,” said the Clermont Crusader. “The Crooked Cronies from Clermont County used to hold crappy breakfasts for their gal all the time.”
“But what if there had been some pretty big-name Republicans from Hamilton County on the host committee?” Kane asked.
“Like Bill Cunningham?” someone laughed. “Along with Skaggie Maggie at The Fishwrap, that draft-dodger’s been attacking Mean Jean’s enemies for years.”
Kane shook his head. Not even a media whore like Cunningham would’ve wanted his name associated with this group. “How about the Honorable Rob Portman?” Kane said. “His hand-picked protégé had ruined Portman’s 70+% Republican Congressional District, and he was still carrying her on his back. Then there was the Honorable Joseph T. Deters. Our County Prosecutor had even talked about running against “Mean Jean” a year before. Or how about the Honorable Me, Greg Hartmann and The Honorable Rebecca Prem Groppe?
“You seem to have a lot of so-called ‘Honorable’ people on that list,” somebody in the audience said.
“And that wasn’t all,” Kane explained. “There was then Ohio House Majority Whip Michelle Glass Slipper. When Michelle wasn’t living in sin, she and Mean Jean had been roommates in Columbus where they voted for each and every one of Boob Taft’s tax increases. And there was the Honorable Jim Petro (Even before the Dishonorable $tan Che$ley began paying him “over the table”). Remember when people said our former Ohio Attorney General had Republican principles? Or how about names like John Barrett— he was raising money for McCain. Toss in Dee and Benjamin Gettler, Steve Miller, former Hamilton County Party Doofus H.C. Buck Niehoff, along with Diane and Michael Oestreicher and Nancy and John Silverman, whoever the hell they are.”
“Was there anybody else?” a lady in the audience asked.
“How about Hamilton County Republican Party Boss Alex Triantafillou (pronounced Alex)?” Kane replied.
“But didn’t Old Blue Face acknowledge to Cincinnatus Standard Publisher Steve Fritsch that the Republican brand had been tarnished?” someone asked. “Didn’t Alex admit Republicans took it on the chin in 2006, and didn’t Alex also own up that as painful as it was for him to say, the Party had it coming, because for a long time RINOs had strayed from the basic core principles that bind Republicans together?”
“It doesn’t sound like our “Alex T., Mall Cop GOP” had learned very much, even then. No wonder we’re still calling him ‘Old Blue Face’ these days, Kane said.
Maybe that’s why our Quote for Today Committee chose Einstein’s Definition of Insanity: “Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”
“Maybe then new Chairman Blueface had just showed up at Mean Jean’s fund-raiser to help ‘unify’ the Party,” the audience said. “But didn’t he realize that lending his name to such an event, put the Party Seal of Approval on it and was a sharp stick in the eye of every Real Republican who’d already been disenfranchised by the Fourth Street Gang? Maybe Alex had planned to work every polling place in Hamilton County all by himself in November?”
“But you’re forgetting the worst part,” Kane said. “Don’t you remember where that feckless fund-raiser for Mean Jean with all those Hamilton County RINO leaders was held?”
“Do you mean the Empty Uppity Oprah Winfrey Campaigning for Obama, Under-funded, Ugly-ass Poorly-Planned Unnagraown Rayroe Museum Not-so-Free-dom Center?” the entire audience exclaimed.
“Here’s a clue,” Kane said. “Look whose name is on top of the list.”
It’s Worse than that,” Kane lamented…
“Nine years ago on June 8, Local Republican leaders chose to demonstrate their historic sellout at a fund-raiser for Southwest Ohio’s most embarrassing elected official in history (including Jerry Springer) at 9005 Camargo Road, at the Indian Hill estate of that Great Republican, perhaps the Greatest Republican in Hamilton County History, Greedy Hearse-Chasing, Disgraced-DemocRAT Clinton-loving, Fen-Phen Scandal Plagued, Disbarred in Kentucky, Resigned in Ohio Trial Attorney $tan Che$ley. And here’s a picture to prove it.”
“But that was nine years ago,” somebody in the audience said. “Everywhere Alex goes, he’s still telling people he’s learned his lesson and THIS time it’s going to be different.”
“Sure,” Kane scoffed. “Doesn’t anybody remember when Alex T. promised to go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court to see Judge John Williams take his “rightful seat” in Juvenile Court that he won fair and square after Disgruntled DemocRAT Tracie Hunter went whining to Judge Mrs. $tan Che$ley in Federal Court.
“And how about Hamilton County’s Disingenuous DemocRAT County Auditor (who was always allowed to run unopposed),” clamored a Hamilton County over-taxed payer getting ready to pay his jacked up property taxes in two weeks. “Even when Alex T. endorsed ‘Taxkiller Tom’ Brinkman seven years ago, the Disingenuous DemocRAT ran unopposed. Now The Old Dustbuster will feel free to jack up some people’s property values in a down economy out of petty personal vindictiveness and spite.”
“You’re right,” agreed our Greed Township Snitch (probably not Stadium Dave Linnenberg), who’s really happy about those 6,888 new Section Eight housing units that decreased the resale value of his house. “About the only thing our Mall Cop has been able to accomplish as RINO Party Boss was getting the Greed Township trustees to pass over 98 qualified applicants to give a $50,000 make-work job to his then soon-to-be-former spouse as part of his alimony avoidance scam.”
“And don’t forget the other maneuvers the chairman made in order to reward the Greed Township Trustees who hooked his wife up with that cushy gig,” Dan From Delhi said. “He pushed Passed-Around Patti Clancy out of the Clerk of Courts office to give Tracy Winkler a cushy new job she is also totally unqualified for. Then he got Runner-Up Rocky Boiman into Tracy’s old spot. Tracy got Greed Township Trustee Tony Rosiello a new job in the Courthouse after he lost his old one. Tony just so happened to employ Tracy’s daughter at the money-losing Greed Township Senior Center that also employs the wife of a Defeated School Board candidate.
“Dont forget that Alex also made “Bronze Star Brad” Wenstrup an offer he couldn’t refuse to get his Courthouse Crony a sweet gig with “Bronze Star Brad’s” Brigade so the Clueless Crony could goof off the next six months and then walk in to the Wenstrup Administration at twice the salary he made in the Courthouse,” said Sarah from Springdale, “and then the Courthouse Crony went to work for a DemocRAT after Brad double-crossed Alex and didn’t hire the bum.”
“And WTF was JayWalking Joe Deters thinking when he wrote a $25,000 check to SMLP Smithermouth at the local chapter of NAALCP before the 2012 Election?” asked CH Snitch at 1000 Main Street. “That looks like a whole new definition of the word ‘Blackmail.’ ”
“And as usual, the Republicans are asleep at the wheel,” exclaimed Angry Andersonian Trustee Andy Pappas. “Despite having far more staff than the D-RATS, they aren’t organized. They can fund “scholarship” programs for “interns,” but when it comes to doing actual work, they don’t accomplish a thing—zip, zero, nada! What did former DemocRAT OPERATIVE Ashtray Chloroform and his stuck-up, shoe-shopping, fashionista sidekick do all day to earn a paycheck?”
“And if you think that’s bad,” Bluegrass Bureau Chief Ken CamBoo added, “Do you remember six years ago when The Boondoggle TEA Party invited Eric “Call Me Crazy,” Big Mouth, Most Sanctioned, Ambulance Chaser, No Count of a Radio Host, Shameless Self Promoter, Willie Wannabe, Why Am I Now A Non-Attorney Spokesperson, Who Likes Bulldogs and Failed Roadhouse Operator Deters to be its featured speaker at its June meeting?” Well, two years ago, we were all still waiting for that unity rally after that year’s Bluegrass Primary Elections, when Louisville businessman and “TEA party” favorite Matt Bevin was the apparent winner of the Republican nomination for governor in Kentucky’s closest-ever statewide primary by 83 votes in a race Obama Supporters in the Press still call “too close to call.”
The Blower remembers when the TEA Party backed Congressional Candidate Thomas Massie from Lewis County (wherever the hell that is) embarrassed the Republican Establishment, by defeating our Trooper Babe, in spite of The Whistleblower’s “Legs” commercial, which if it had only been on TV a few more times, Alecia would’ve won by a landslide.
Remember: We never print all the bad stuff we know and certain people ought to be damn glad we don’t, especially, $tan Che$ley.
