    So what do you really think about Gov. Taft? 

    Ohioblog has been sharing at every opportunity what a disaster it believes Bob Taft has been as the state's alleged governor. Others share our opinion - even others in the Bush campaign.

    DailyKos reports a mole in Republicans Abroad with a voice recording of Republican operative Grover Norquist explaining which battleground state is most important and his concerns:

    ``We have to hold OHIO,'' Norquist said. ``We have an idiot, stupid, corrupt, dumb, rotten Republican governor in that state...who has been busy looting the state, raising taxes, lying to the gun owners. Ohio is the only state that in the nation that has lost jobs and isn't recovering because he's been beatingh the economy to death in the state. But he's not on the ballot, George Bush is on the state. It's not helpful. He should be taken out and horsewhipped.''

    That sounds too much like something that would happen in an Iraqi prison run by U.S. troops. We more reasonable Ohioans will settle for tar-and-feathering Taft. Make the tar hot. Very hot.
