Hello. NAMBLA. You're. Quite. Good. At. Turning. Me. On.

Imploding Ohio gubernatorial candidate Ken Blackwell is taking heat from all sides for his unsubstantiated attacks on his opponent's sex life. (Refresher: In the 1990s Democrat Ted Strickland employed a straight staffer who had exposed himself to kids as a 21-year-old college student. Strickland, who is married, and the staffer, who is straight, took a post-1998 election vacation in Italy, which Republicans are using as grist for a "Strickland diddles boys" rumor.) First he lost the endorsement of one Ohio paper that had previously backed him. Now, he's inspired a video mash-up hosted by Washington Post smartass Dana Milbank.

The joke wears a bit thin over 90 seconds, but the "Ken Blackwell? Governor?" gag is good for another 18 days.

UPDATE: Please note that I used a Simpsons reference in the headline to allow unfettered use of South Park references in the comments.

  1. I didn’t know the Super Adventure Club had a chapter in Ohio?

  2. What does this have to do with the North American Marlon Brando Look-Alike Association?

  3. Great video. This video just opens the eyes and mind on the issues, which people have to deal with. This video is very real, I find.

    Thank you for sharing this video with me !

  4. nice try with the pop culture reference, David. However, I knew Tim “Culturemeister” Cavanaugh. Tim “Culturemeister” Cavanaugh was my friend. Frankly, sir, you are no Tim “Culturemeister” Cavanaugh.

  5. First Katherine Harris then this guy’s spectacular decline. There’s a lesson here kids: don’t steal an election for Bush. Sure, it seems cool at the time but a few years later you’re on the one-way bus to Palookaville.

  6. Maybe Libertarian candidate Bill Peirce will get a bump from Blackwell’s death spiral. If he pulls 5% of the vote it will secure ballot access for the LP in a state with some of the worst petition requirements in the country.

  7. I’m starting to think the GOP knew they’d lose so they ran this guy as a sacrificial goat with hopes that he’d lose and go away forever. Seem to be working.

  8. At least we’re not murderers

    (Cmon, everyone knows Mr Show trumps south park and the simpsons)

  9. sorry to continue the threadjack, but…

    Nambla – I don’t really care for Mr Show. They come off as completely sanctimonious pricks.

  10. Well, to each their own, but I must implore you to watch it again. Too much funny in one place.

    Try the 3rd season.

  11. Vote Bill Peirce. There is no “wasted vote” argument against voting Libertarian in this one. Any “libertarian” who doesn’t is….

  12. Take it from me, I love you!

  13. Why the hell is a candidate for governor standing on the stage during a televised debate talking about “man-boy sex” and NAMBLA?

  14. Why the hell is a candidate for governor standing on the stage during a televised debate talking about “man-boy sex” and NAMBLA?

    It’s either that, or coins and corruption.

  15. Be brave, be strong, and most of all.. Be proud to be a boy lover!

  16. Out ’em all.

  17. The best way to watch the Mr Show DVDs is with the commentary on.

    Now, hold on, let me think of a Family Guy reference…

    Jeez, this is harder than when I used to be a security guard for George Harrison…

    (Thread hijacking complete.)

  18. I guess this is the place to share scurrilous bric-a-brac from times gone by.
    Many years ago, I attended a breakfast fund-raiser for one of Kenny’s earlier political escapades.
    I was surprised to be seated at the table with his momma and his brother, and that the table was so way out on the fringes.
    I wasn’t surprised moi was out there, but his immediate family? (We made small talk. It was a little strange.)
    smaacky!

  19. I didn’t know the Super Adventure Club had a chapter in Ohio?

    They don’t have a full chapter – just a few pages.

  20. You mean Ken Blackwell is black? I just figured he was aother fat, pirogue-eatin, beer-swillin, coin stealin’ white guy.

    I gotta get around more.
