Sen. Voinovich has been a bit of a polarizing figure among Ohio Republicans since he entered the U.S. Senate. Going from a reputation as a fiscally responsible Governor to what many would only describe as a RINO hasn’t left many weeping for his retirement.
But now it’s clear ole Voino is more than happy to say whatever is on his mind. Even if it means making fun of the entire south.
The GOP’s biggest problem? “We got too many Jim DeMints (R-S.C.) and Tom Coburns (R-Ok.). It’s the southerners. They get on TV and go ‘errrr, errrrr.’ People hear them and say, ‘These people, they’re southerners. The party’s being taken over by southerners. What they hell they got to do with Ohio?’ ”
Do you think there was debate in the editorial room about how to spell that?
Oh, Georgie. You pistol.
