ORP Chairman DeWine on Shaq, Ted, and Cleveland

"At least Shaq's not going to Cincinnati, where he'd be emptying his wallet to fund David Pepper's infamous jock tax. Of course, with Pepper campaigning to be Ted Strickland's lapdog in the auditor's office, it's probably just a matter of time before he's pushing a statewide jock tax as Ohio's next big money maker.

Maybe the governor can welcome Shaq to Cleveland by cleaning up the public corruption that's giving the city a black eye. It's ridiculous that Gov. Strickland has time to send out a press release welcoming a basketball player, but he has nothing to say about the growing scandal involving prominent members of his own party. At least the people of Cleveland have a basketball team they can be proud of. Their politicians are an embarrassment."
I have to admit, I kind of like this one...
