  1. Speaking as a resident of the Greater Cincinnati area, I would like to take a moment to point out that Jerry originally reached noteriety by using a personal check to pay for a visit to a Kentucky whorehouse.

    This is not what I would term an intelligent use of resources…

  2. Wasn’t he mayor at one time? At least he’s held an elective office, which is more than Hilary ever did.

  3. Yes, the mayor of Cincinnati. And he was holding that office when the “whorehouse” incident occured. Which should tell you something about the Queen City. đŸ™‚

    Actually the point I was trying to make in my first post was that he used a _personal check_ to pay. Fer cryin’ out loud didn’t he think of paying cash?

  4. sounds to me like he’d fit in the Senate quite well.

  5. And would probably do as good or better than a majority of the characters currently serving.


  6. It’s more honest to pay for sex than use a position of power & authority to obtain sexual favors from a chunky intern.

    Springer’s show is an advertisement for what some people call “traditional values.”

    -Springer’s show demonstrates that faithful monogamy is superior to having multiple sexual partners.

    -Springer’s show demonstrates the importance of staying in school & obtaining an education.

    Phyllis Schalfly should be his campaign manager.

    Love from Australia.
    Hell, send him over here, he can be Prime Minister. He’s gotta be better than that sycophant John Howard. You Americans know John Howard. He’s the little wart on George Dubya’s butt!
