A Cincinnati Democrat gets the last word over Bush

A Democrat from Cincinnati will be delivering the Democratic response to President Bush's final State of the Union address.

A Cincinnati Democrat who happens to be governor of Kansas.

Kathleen Sebelius, daughter of former Ohio governor John J. Gilligan, will follow Bush's speech with the Democratic take on where the country stands.

It will raise the national profile of Sebelius, who was elected to a second term as Kansas governor in 2006. Earlier this month, the Washington Post listed Sebelius as one of seven Democrats who Might make good running mates for either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, pointing out that Obama might have a soft spot for Kansas, his mother's home state.

Sebelius, a graduate of Summit Country Day School, will be back in town next month for the Cincinnati USA Chamber's annual dinner where her father will be enshrined as a Great Living Cincinnatian.

Hmmmm... wonder if she will mention what her son's been up to lately.

Ohio should be SO proud.

And finally it was the voters in 2008 that had the last word when they soundly took back their country and let their voices be heard by voting for hope and change with Barak Obama.

I AM VERY PROUD OF ALL DEMOCRATS. What I'm not so proud of are hateful partisan politics and people who don't know up from down as is the case with the first comments author. But don't worry small minded people still get to vote in 2008.

...a graduate of Summit Country Day who was not permitted to address the current students there because of her aggressive support for killing unborn babies, especially Tillar the Killer in Kansas who's speciality is late term abortions. Hard to be
"proud" of that.

Cincinnati doesn't claim this witch. Let Kansas have her - she's a worthless political hack.

Here's what her son is selling out of the governor's mansion:

"Governor Kathleen Sebelius isn’t the only member of her family getting media attention; so is one of her sons — albeit in the “news of the weird” category. John Sebelius, 23, is selling “Don’t Drop the Soap,” a prison-themed board game he created as part of a class project at the Rhode Island School of Design, Associated Press reported.

The description of the game on his Web site (which also lists the governor’s mansion in the contact address) says: “Escape prison riots in The Yard, slip glass into a mob boss’ lasagna in the Cafeteria, steal painkillers from the nurse’s desk in the Infirmary, avoid being cornered by the Aryans in the shower room, fight off Latin Kings in Gang War, and try not to smoke your entire stash in The Hole.”

You may not like Sebelius, but do you really need to call her a witch?

I like how the libs on here complain about conservative name calling, yet they routinely refer to their political opponents as "Repugnicants" and compare the President to animals found in the zoo.

Wow, the right-wing wackos are out in force today, aren't they. The 27-percenter Bushies are going unglued now that America has waken up and sees these right wing goons for what they are.

Don't let the door hit you in the *ss on your way out after you lose the election, chumps.

I hate resorting to name calling but whoever left the anonymous comments at 3:09Pm today is wimpy little feeble minded fool. And because you exhibit all the characteristics of mentally challenged racist bigot you should be prevented from breeding. While I realize that everyone has the right to be heard, we don't exactly let the special ed kids play with bombs for good reason, this idiot shouldn't feel free to spew this racist garbage. He know it's true because he remained anonymous.

Sebelius is a good looking woman who is a very shallow politician. Her appearance as a VP candidate will not happen.

Sebelius is a good looking woman?!

Miss, put down the crack pipe.
