It's primary season, and here in central Ohio the heavy ad buys are from Republican candidates trying to out-conservatard each other. The one below may be the worst. State Rep. Larry Householder is a former speaker of the Ohio House who left office in 2004 while under investigation for ethics violations related to political fundraising and kickbacks. He reclaimed his old seat in 2017 and is up to his slippery old tricks, raising boatloads of money, twisting arms and angling to be House speaker once again. He's the same power-hungry snake he's always been.
Householder's vile ad kisses Trump's ass and pushes all the deplorables reliable hot buttons: guns, god, heartbeats, and a big, stiff conservative dick.
Does Householder hold a valid license to hunt old TV sets? Do you really need to wear a camo-costume to bag a Magnavox?
Thankfully, he's not my rep, and although the GOP has a gerrymandered stranglehold on the Ohio legislature and Householder will be reelected easily, I hope he won't be the next speaker. Let him stick to his guns, especially if he sticks 'em where the sun don't shine!
(For the record, I enjoy a good steak from time to time.)
