Ohio wins and loses at voting booth

President Obama speaks to Joe the Plumber | Google Images

Tuesday’s primary elections were a mixed bag for Ohio.

Nickie Antonio, an at-large city councilwoman of Lakewood, won the Democratic nomination for District 13 of the Ohio House of Representatives. Antonio is an out lesbian and would represent Lakewood, a suburb of Cleveland with a sizable LGBT population, in the Ohio House if she wins in November.

But, of course, the bad always balances out the good: Samuel “Joe the Plumber” Wurzelbacher — former presidential candidate Sen. John McCain’s average Joe, who wouldn’t be able to make ends meet under Obama’s economic plan — won a seat on the local Republican Party committee in Lucas County.

The group he’ll serve on meets a few times a year to elect the county chairman and sets the party agenda, the Associated Press reports.

After FOX News yanked Sean Hannity from Cincinnati Tea Party Rally last month, Wurzelbacher filled in. He was met with cheers when he advised the crowd to not allow “a bunch of liberal pansies” to take away their rights.

“I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children,” Wurzelbacher told Christianity Today. “But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing.”

It’s people like him that make me just so proud to be an Ohioian.

  2. I just have one question, why is Joe The Plumber even relevant in this time? He’s a complete moron with the education of a sixth grader. No offense to those in the sixth grade, I’m sure they’d prove smarter.
