Democrats in OH have to be clever. Outside of Cleveland, Democrats don’t have much of a foothold. Their websites are better than the GOP, with printable tickets for the college kids. The GOP website wanted me to register, I guess so they could email me every day. Also the GOP site didn’t have a printable ticket. Not a good sign, I think. Anyway none of the Democratic candidates mention anything about being a democrat.
A good example is Jay Perez, a guy running for judge here in Columbus. I read his bio, a former cop, son of a Cuban immigrant, sounds like a good guy. Then I see this quote:
“As Supreme Court Justice, Oliver Wendell Holmes said, the life of the law is experience, not logic.”
Now all I really know about OWH is that he was the best supreme court judge ever and we should all bow down and revere him. Bar none. No question. But the more I think of that quote, the more I think it just doesn’t pass the puke test. I mean, wouldn’t one have to experience an event to truly judge it? If you are judge in a piracy case, do you have to be a pirate? Victim of piracy? Then I start reading about how Justice Holmes was influenced by Malthus, sheesh, I feel like slapping my 6th grade history teacher. The only thing expanding to Malthusian proportions these days are government spending and regulation.
