Springer's back

The Hamilton County Democratic Party's perpetual infatuation with Jerry Springer carries on this week, as the Prodigal Son of Cincinnati politics returns once again for a big party fundraiser.

Every spring, the county party holds a Century Club fundraising dinner, one of its biggest events of the year. This year's edition takes place at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the junior ballroom of the Duke Energy Center (tickets are $150 each, or $1,500 for a a table). Springer is being touted as the "guest of honor" but the featured speaker is Ohio Treasurer Richard Cordray.

Cordray is something of a TV star himself -- in his younger days, he was a five-time champion on the game show Jeopardy, where he is still considered a legend. Unlike the "guest of honor," though, he has never refereed a slap-fight between two women on national television.

Springer is still the most articulate and rational voice in Cincinnati politics. It is a shame that his career has led him where it has because he would be a fantastic public servant.

Jerry's experience refereeing fights between fat whores is perfect training for Democrat fund raising!

Jerry's infatuates Democrats for one reason: Fat Checks.

Now, he buys his recognition.

Anon 8:33, not true. Springer's voice in unique in its honesty and pragmatism. He really is the only sensible voice in Cincinnati politics, Dem or Repub. Watch him speak and you'll know why his voice is so important.

The checks are a product of his passion. His passion is what brings his recognition.

The local Democratic Party has to be delusional to think there is any benefit to putting Jerry Springer front and center as their "guest of honor" at a fund raising event.

I'll be there to throw a few chairs and report later on the experience.

Will Jerry offer an "uncensored" tape of the fund rasier with Victoria Wuslin in Victoria's Secret? On second thought, let's all hope NOT.

Passion!?!?

God Springer has passion for one thing: Himself. And anyone who thinks he has any insightful ideas (he is a predictable lib) is simply "infatuated.

Springer is no more repugnant than corrupt, philandering Newt Gingrich, who the GOP brought here to raise money for Chabot.

You have obviously never heard him speak. He is certainly NOT a predictable lib. I remember watching him follow Chris Redfern at an event an the contrast was striking. Springer is honest and divorced from the politics of the issues. He is genuine and sincere--things that are sorely missing from both sides of the political debate.

The Democratic Party should be embarrassed to have the king of sleaze Jerry Springer as its face. Is Eliot Spitzer busy?

CincyJeff, please do us all a favor and come out of the closet. Embrace your real self, and start having some fun. Life is too short to hate yourself and, quite frankly, for the rest of us to read your bilous hatred.

This is going to be such a washout for the Repugs this year that they will think of Election Night 2006 as "the good old days."

If they lost big with $2.50/gallon gas, wait till gas is over $3 a gallon.

If they lost big when there were 3,000 Americans killed in Iraq, wait till we pass the 5,000 mark.

If they lost big when we spent $500,000,000,000 on this illegal war, wait till we hit the trillion mark.

If they lost big when the dollar was on par with the Euro, wait till they face the voters when Chimpy McHitler has plunged us into his 2nd recession and the dollar is worth less than the Canadian loonie, on its way to even-Steven with the peso. (Well, that will take care of some of the 12 million illegals BushCo let into the country to drive down working-class wages.)

If they lost big when Bob Ney and Mark Foley were the only criminal Repugs in Congress, wait till they face the voters with 8-10 more Congress criminals' mug shots on the TV commercials.

If they lost big when the housing sector of the economy was running well, wait till they face the voters with 2 million more American families in foreclosure and entire communities devastated by Repug housing/lending policies.

If they lost big when Bush and the Repugs gave corporations tax breaks for sending 2 million U.S. jobs overseas, wait till they face the voters with 5 million Americans being replaced by people too lazy to sneak in illegally.

If they lost big-time wehn the American public didn't know that Bush's Consumer Product Safety Commission was looking the other way while China poisoned American kids and pets, wait till the voters go in to the booth fully aware of how damaging and literally life-threatening Repug policies have been to them.

Bush, Cheney and the Repugs have made America hated around the world and Americans too poor to travel anyway.

Finally, if they lost big with corrupt Repugs like Ken Blackwell couting the votes, imagine how big they will lose when the votes are finally counted honestly.

The Great Myth used to hold that we had two political parties, each with their own ideas and visions for making America stronger and more prosperous. Now, there is only one political party committed to that goal.

The people currently running the Repugnicant Party would literally let each and every one of the people reading this, even their most loyal party stalwarts, die a horrible death if the alternative was that some industrialist somewhere might not make as much money as he or she had wanted to.

Thanks to the Repugs, the insurance companies can take life-saving medical treatments out of your hands.

Thanks to the Repugs, corporations can take your jobs and your health insurance with it and hire someone in another country and pay them less.

Thanks to the Repugs, corporations can kill you, your children, and your pets with unsafe and poisonous products and there is nothing you can do about it.

Thanks to the Repugs, America's senior citizens are paying twice as much for life-saving medicines as they were before.

Oh, yeah, don't forget the record budget deficits and trade deficits we are running up just so the wealthiest one percent of us can pay fewer taxes.

No more embarrassed than the Republican Party is to have George W. Bush as its face. Is Larry Craig busy?
