Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither, and lose both.
-- Benjamin Franklin

Ohio, Kentucky, what’s the difference?


The governor of Ohio has pleaded no-contest to charges he accepted illegal contributions, but vows to stay on. Of course, we’ve not really yet investigated the shady dealings where state funds were invested in a risky rare-coin fund, run by his buddy.

Not to be outdone, I guess, Ernie Fletcher, the republican governor of Kentucky, has issued blanket pardons to nine of his cronies who are (I guess were, now) being investigated by a grand jury for violating personnel hiring laws.

God, I’m so glad the republicans are restoring integrity to government (sarcasm, for those slow of wit).

What is the possibility of having two republican governors impeached simultaneously in two adjoining states? It would be justified, but will probably never happen, due to the principle of IOKIYAR.
