Suddenly Tom Noe Isn't Their Buddy Any More

Ohio and national Repugs are frantically falling over themselves returning donations from Tom Noe, the former go-to guy in Ohio who, it turns out, is, like a lot of Repugs, a major league rip off artist. The Toledo Blade - a good newspaper for years that escaped notice until it won a Pulitzer last year - has been on the case, much to the dismay of at least one Repug reader:

After seeing the Tom Noe coin scandal dominate your headlines for the past month, I have had enough. I wonder what The Blade would have done if this was a Democrat in the same position. The obvious answer would be that your liberal newspaper would have failed to print the story, or thrown it on the back page of the Second News where no one would have noticed.

What are you trying to prove with your two-plus pages of daily investigation? Everyone already knows that this paper hates anything and everything that deals with Republicans or our party.

Get over this story and move on printing the news like a newspaper should. While you're at it, go ahead and change that slogan from "One of America's Great Newspapers" to simply "America's Most Liberal Newspaper."

Hard cheese, old chap! Repugs who cheered when the media crucified Bill Clinton for lying about a blowjob - something most men do or want to do - get all titterpated when the truth comes out about one of their own. "Get over it!" Yeah, sure. As soon as your lot is the hell out of office.
