My local bird cage liner, The Plain Dealer, reported today that a “source” told them that there is a telephone poll in the works that will ask Ohio voters about a hypothetical Democratic ticket pushing the former U.S. Rep. Dennis Kucinich as a gubernatorial candidate.
The UFO-seeing, hot young ginger wife having former boy mayor of Cleveland, got booted out of Congress after redistricting pitted him against Ohio’s 9th district incumbent Marcy Kaptur in the 2012 Democratic primary.
From The Plain Dealer:
The Ohio Democratic Party is aligned behind Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald as its candidate against Republican Gov. John Kasich. Portune expressed interest in a primary challenge last month, after FitzGerald’s first running mate, State Sen. Eric Kearney of Cincinnati, dropped off the ticket due to his financial problems.
Kucinich, the former mayor of Cleveland who spends much of his time in Washington after losing his seat in a 2012 redistricting battle, earlier refuted speculation that he also might throw his hat in the ring. On Wednesday, his response was notably different.
“No comment,” Kucinich said by text message after being asked specifically about the poll and whether he was considering a run in the Democratic primary. Read More Here…
Being of Croatian decent, I’ve always felt an extra pang of embarrassment for the half Croatian, half Irish Kucinich. But I gotta say a Kucinich vs Kasich Governors race pitting two candidates of Croatian decent would be pretty cool, and probably pretty hillarious to watch as a political observer as well.
This vintage PSA by the Ad Council really makes the itching, burning, tenderness & pain in the genital area all seam pleasant and worth it. I could just imagine the kids in 1970 watching this ad an being all like, “wow this VD looks pretty cool, where can I get some?”
Throughout her failed 2008 presidential campaign, aides to Hillary Clinton, kept a detailed “hit list” of political enemies. The list was made up of people who had crossed her by endorsing Barack Obama, claim Jonathan Allen & Amie Parnes in their new book “HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton.”
Here is a small snippet of a larger excerpt of the upcoming book posted at the Politico:
There was a special circle of Clinton hell reserved for people who had endorsed Obama or stayed on the fence after Bill and Hillary had raised money for them, appointed them to a political post or written a recommendation to ice their kid’s application to an elite school. On one early draft of the hit list, each Democratic member of Congress was assigned a numerical grade from 1 to 7, with the most helpful to Hillary earning 1s and the most treacherous drawing 7s. The set of 7s included Sens. John Kerry (D-Mass.), Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.), Bob Casey (D-Pa.) and Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), as well as Reps. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Baron Hill (D-Ind.) and Rob Andrews (D-N.J.).
Yet even a 7 didn’t seem strong enough to quantify the betrayal of some onetime allies.
2016 Is sure going to be an interesting circus, I mean election.
Well now here comes a new development. Remember the days when people used to get attacked and even killed for their Nike Air Jordan’s? Well no longer are people just getting beat up FOR their Jordan’s, they are getting beat up with them.
Sirgiorgiro Clardy, 26, a Portland pimp was was wearing a pair of the Nike shoes when he decided to stomp a mudhole into the face of a customer that refused to pay for the services rendered by one of Clardy’s working girls. During the beating he also took the money from the john and for good measure beat the crap out of the 18-year-old girl who failed to collect the payment.
A jury found Clardy guilty of assault with a dangerous weapon (the Nike’s), robbery as well as the assault on the working girl. He was sentenced to 100 years in prison.
Here comes the part where the story gets fun.
Clardy claims that the assault was totally not his fault and could have been avoided if not for the failures of Nike chairman Phil Knight and his company. In his three page handwritten in jail complaint, the incarcerated pimp claims that Nike failed to properly warn consumers that their product could be used as a dangerous weapon.
Via The Oregonian:
“Under product liability there is a certain standard of care that is required to be up-held by potentially dangerous product …” wrote Clardy, who is representing himself. “Do (sic) to the fact that these defendants named in this Tort claim failed to warn of risk or to provide an adequate warning or instruction it has caused personal injury in the likes of mental suffering.”
Clardy wrote that he’s tried to starve himself and kill himself multiple times.
He asks a Multnomah County judge to order Nike to affix warning labels to all their “potentially dangerous Nike and Jordan merchandise.”
In the past, Oregon defendants have been convicted of using a wide array of items or substances as dangerous weapons. The list includes boots, rope, a phone receiver, scalding hot water and HIV-infected blood. The “dangerous weapon” classification can spur longer prison sentences.
Clardy filed his suit this week in Multnomah County Circuit Court. Read More Here…
Here comes some news that will surely make stalkers, serial killers, child predators and all of the other creepers of the world rejoice. A Las Vegas tech start-up has a new app for Google Glass or smart phones that will allow the aspiring next BTK Killer or next Ted Bundy much easier access to being able to seek out and stalk victims.
Riding the bus and see someone whose face you want to cut off and wear as a mask? But you just don’t know if they are the type of person you want to torture and kill. Well now, the folks at NameTag are making it much easier for you. Just snap their pic using your smart phone or Google Glass device and the app will send the picture NameTag’s server, where it will compare the photo to millions of online records and return with a name, social media profiles, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and access to a whole lot more pictures and information. Being a sick twisted fuck has never been easier.
Kevin Tussy, NameTag’s creator claims that the goal of his app are much more wholesome in nature then what it will surely be used for. NameTag is working on technology that will allow scanning of profile piuctures on various on-line dating sites.
“I believe that this will make online dating and offline social interactions much safer and give us a far better understanding of the people around us,” Tussy said in a statement last month. “It’s much easier to meet interesting new people when we can simply look at someone, see their Facebook, review their LinkedIn page or maybe even see their dating site profile.”
While the idea of being able to screen registered sex offenders does have certain merits to it, the overall destruction of privacy that this app will create is huge. While Google has already banned facial recognition apps from Google Glass due to “privacy concerns.” It’s still a relatively easy jailbreak.
The same type of technology that the NSA is using is now soon to be in the hands of just about anyone. I don’t think even Orwell could have envisioned what this could mean.
Here in America we have liberal-kook politician Dennis Kucinich who has claimed to have seen a UFO (I’m still hoping they’d come back to take him home), but our little brothers to the north have one-upped us. Paul Hellyer, Canada’s former Cold War era defense minister, not only claims to have seen a UFO, which he said, “…just looks like a star,” he also claims that aliens have been visiting Earth for thousands of years.
But that’s not even the crazy part, Hellyer claims that the reason that our interstellar neighbors have not revealed themselves to us is because we have created the atomic bomb. You see E.T. Is afraid that the whole balance of the cosmos will be thrown out of whack because if we know of their existence that we may use our nuclear weapons again.
According to CNET:
Hellyer used to believe that there were between 2 and 12 different species of alien. Now, he says he’s received reports that there might be as many as 80.
What’s perhaps most interesting to our self-centered species is that some of them apparently look just like us. Indeed, he claimed that two alien ladies went to Las Vegas to shop dressed as nuns and no one was any the wiser.
Why would they be? This was Vegas. Try that in Springfield, Ill.
In case you feel you might have met one in your home town, some are tall (“Nordic blondes”), some are short (“Short Grays”), and some look like aliens in cartoons.
At this point, you’ll be worried about whether these aliens are mean-spirited. Hellyer said that only one or two species might be threatening. He didn’t mention whether they spoke Klingon.
In previous pronouncements, Hellyer has insisted that aliens know how to make us greener.
The aliens would, it seems, like to teach us better ways to live. Hellyer believes, though, that they are waiting for our consent. Moreover, they’re scared that if they revealed themselves we’d throw a conniption.
Honestly, it’s as if these aliens have never seen a single sci-fi show. We’ve been begging them to sort us out for many a year.
You’ll be wondering, though, about their technology. The aliens are “light years” ahead of us. And, apparently, “a lot of the things we use today, we got from them.”
In order to devote his time and efforts in mounting a third-party campaign for the US Senate seat currently occupied by Democrat Kay Hagen, a city councilman in Indian Trail, NC has resigned in a very novel way. By writing his resignation letter in the Klingon language.
“Folks don’t know what to think of me half the time,” said David Waddell, “I might as well have one last laugh” on the board.

Soccer players for Royal Antwerp in Belgium prepare for an indoor soccer tournament in a very special way, by kicking PK’s off the backsides of hotties from Clint Magazine.
I personally love soccer, but maybe this is the sort of thing we need to make the world’s most popular sport finally gain some ground in America.
