Ohio: Blackwell caught in photos with Bush
Edited on Thu Aug-03-06 04:19 AM by NEOBuckeye



Seems that good ol' J.Ken didn't want to be caught in photographs with his good buddy Dubya whom he helped out so well in 2004, for fear that Dubya's negativities would come to be associated with J.Ken's gubernatorial campaign.

Lucky for J.Ken, the Plain Dealer snapped these gems, coming soon to a telephone pole near you!

Please spread these around as much as possible! Photoshop them, make flyers out of them, do whatever it takes to make sure that visually, Blackwell is forever associated with Bush.

2. Oh jesus, Bernie Kosar?
I'm sure that's who that is, albeit heavier than I've ever seen him.

4. That IS Bernie, unfortunately
According to the caption under the pics at the Plain Dealer/Cleveland.com website.

A shame. I thought he was a little bit smarter than to associate with fools like Blackwell and Bush. Must have been banged in the head too many times from being sacked.

8. You're on the losing team, once again, Bernie!
Fuck Kosar. He sucked as a QB. But he seems to be a good Bushbot.

11. Kosar's wife is right-"bizarre and erratic behavior".Maybe he wants to be
'co-czar'?

...Babette accuses Bernie of ''increasingly bizarre and erratic behavior and various other addictions,'' according to court docs. He has been ''giving away money and interest in other significant marital assets including real property to family and friends.'' He acts ''financially irrationally and irresponsibly'' -- and even plans to buy a house four doors from where they now live, she says.

Kosar needs ''help'' . . . and should ''focus his energies on his mental health and not on the purchase of the home,'' she says. Besides, ``it will be almost impossible . . . to develop independent lives . . . in such close proximity . . .''

No one will comment on the ''addictions'' she refers to. Some case documents are sealed -- at Kosar's request. That's because she ''makes very detailed, personal allegations'' about his ''character and mental well-being,'' he says in court papers.

In their 1990 prenup, Kosar listed his assets at $20.76 million, and she listed hers at $56,234. He is now worth way more. Their household expenses are $54,099 a month, documents say...

NFL quarterback $78,000 Republican
$7,000 Democrat
total: $85,000

13. And why not?
Another overrich fascist, who thinks he "earned" gazillions of dollars by dint of his own efforts, and not as the result of a genetic lottery, whose most memorable football exploits include being on the losing sideline when Doug Flutie threw that pass to Gerald Phelan, and when John Elway marched his team 98 yards down the field in the final seconds of a playoff game.

7. Oh, Bernie. Say it isn't so, Bern.
Please don't show him with LeBron James. The entire city will collectively reach for the razor blades.

9. Pic #1 - right after this flick
Secret Service wrestled Ken Blackwell to the ground. They later apologized when they realized that they had just arrested the Republican candidate for Governor. Blackwell explained that he thought that Bush would enjoy a good prank like Bush pulled in Germany ...
