Cool Hand-off

I don’t watch Hannity but I’m glad I did see the Tucker-Hannity hand-off today. Tucker had criticized Bezos and his ridiculous wealth on the show, and Hannity just had to tune in with some really inane free-marketeering slogans. The faces Tucker was making at him while he did that were priceless.

Tucker’s got more viewers which goes to show that people are ready for a more complex conservatism than the failed “less taxes more war” kind.

  1. In Ohio, our House speaker has been arrested by the FBI. This is the second House speaker in a row this has happened to (our last speaker resigned in disgrace in 2018; this guy replaced him.) Householder took bribes from a nuclear power plant company and exchange bailed them out with a controversial bill.

    “This is likely the largest bribery, money laundering scheme ever perpetrated against the people of the state of Ohio,” said U.S. Attorney David DeVillers, whose office will lead the prosecution of the case. “This was bribery, plain and simple. This was a quid pro quo. This was pay to play.”

      1. The arrest, at least, is a cause for celebration. Nobody is surprised that Householder was corrupt; it’s something we all knew. It’s just a pleasant surprise he’s finally been arrested. I hope it doesn’t stop here; the entire legislature is corrupt.

          1. Oh, it’s strong here, just more disorganized than Illinois. Different corrupt factions in the GOP fight for power here, while in Illinois Madigan’s control is ironclad. And then these factions gets sloppily caught by the FBI. This isn’t even the first time Householder has been under FBI investigation.

            If you really wanna look into things, look up “Coingate.” That was a while ago, but the Ohio GOP hasn’t really improved since then, they just manage to avoid getting caught (until now.) Having looked into Ohio politics, a large number of the bills are pay-for-play. I’m sure actual illegal behavior is avoided much of the time, but it should be illegal (and I’m confident that blatantly illegal stuff is happening all the time; it happened with our previous speaker Cliff Rosenberger and it’s happening now.)
