Brilliant Herb Asher Quote of the Day
From the Dayton Daily News:
About 30 local businesses are participating in a program to link conservative consumers with businesses owned by conservatives to help support the Tea Party.
Donald Hutchinson, a businessman and Tea Party supporter, calls his initiative the Tea Party Exchange Inc.
Tea Party supporters who obtain a TPX-Great American card — similar to a customer-loyalty card consumers can attach to key rings — and show it at a participating business can get a discount on the company’s services. The local merchant then gives 5 percent of the sale revenue to the local Tea party chapter to help fund rallies.
“It might attract some customers. It might drive some away,” said Herb Asher, an Ohio State University political science professor. “If I were a businessperson, the first thing I’d ask: Is this a winner or a loser for me?”
Asher isn’t just a political scientist… He is also a Democrat operative who wrote the failed pro-Democrat Reform Ohio Now redistricting ballot issue in 2005. And today, we learn his business acumen is beyond reproach.
