Local Execs Still Trying to Buy Government

From the Business Courier:

Three Cincinnati business leaders known for their financial support of Republican candidates and conservative causes are among the largest donors to a new political organization chaired by former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.

Carl Lindner (American Financial), Dick Farmer (Cintas) and Bob Castellini (Reds) have given $800,000 total to the group American Solutions for Winning the Future.

The "solutions:" to defend America and our allies abroad and defeat our enemies, to strengthen and revitalize America’s core values, and to move government into the 21st Century.

Non-B.S. translation: Obama is kicking our ass. If we convince enough people that offshore drilling will lower gas prices they might forget we have no real energy policy and vote for us.

Keep that tire gauge handy. That's about the only sensible thing the Republicans have been handing out lately.

I became an out-of-touch liberal this past Tuesday (i.e. I put some air in my tires).
