Working hard or hardly working?

Even more fun from today’s absolute mess of a press conference was Ted Strickland’s statement about how he, unlike the Senate GOP, worked hard over the holiday weekend on both Saturday and Sunday in an effort to solve Ohio’s budget issues.

How hard?

From WMFD in Mansfield:

[On July 4th] More than 5,000 people attended the event which featured games, food, a car show, eating contests and a parade.

The highlight of event was the Jello eating contest. Gov. Ted Strickland rolled up his sleeves and joined the other competitors in eating a bowl of Jello in record time.

I wanted to have a witty caption for this photo, but honestly nothing could do it justice. I mean, look at him. If that isn’t the look of defeat, I don’t know what is.

And while Ontario, Ohio is a mere 81 miles up I-71, I wouldn’t exactly call going head to head with a 5-year old in a jello eating competition “working hard all weekend”.

You’ll get him next time, Guv.
