Sen. Sherrod Brown’s Racial, Partisan Speech to Interns at Nonpartian Event

June 30th, 2010 Matt View Comments

In case you forgot, Chris Moody at the Daily Caller reminds us that our junior senator is nuts:

During a bipartisan education seminar for congressional interns last week, Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown told a crowd of young people that those who opposed the Democrats’ health-care reform plan were on the wrong side of history, much like segregationists who opposed the Civil Rights movement.

While most speakers who participate in the summer lecture series discuss what it’s like working in Washington or use the time to motivate the internship class, some who were present during the Tuesday meeting said Brown took the opportunity to launch what they considered to be “a partisan attack.”

“He said that people who were opposed to health-care reform were similar to the bigots and racists that were against desegregation reform,” a Republican congressional intern who attended the lecture told The Daily Caller. The intern requested not to be named. “It was ridiculous,” he added.

I grew up in Sherrod Brown’s former Congressional district in Lorain County, and I can tell you that this sort of rhetoric is tame. When he spoke to my High School in 2000, he informed my entire class that Republicans were physically keeping blacks out of the voting booths in Florida during the Presidential election.

Brown is a true liberal agitator and has no problem stirring up racial issues, just like his kooky wife does in the pages of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

But make no mistake- In private when speaking to Lorain steel workers, Brown had no problem making disparaging remarks about blacks.

Annoying Facebook Updates from Mrs. Sherrod Brown

April 5th, 2010 Matt View Comments

A friend thinks I should make this a regular feature…. Updates from Connie Schultz’s Facebook page. What do you think?

Anyway, here are two to get us started:

First, it’s time to picture her in bed with her husband:

“This week we’re celebrating our sixth wedding anniversary.

When people ask Sherrod what it’s like to be married to me, he often offers a story from summer 2008, in Denver. He was giving a talk to about 200 Democratic donors, thanking them for their support, when the man standing next to me leaned in and said, “I can’t stand that guy’s voice.”

“Really?” I said.

“Yeah,” he said, then curled his hands in front of him to look like claws. “Like fingernails on a blackboard.

“Hmm,” said. “I really like his voice.”

“You do?” he said, incredulous. I motioned for him to lean in closer. “You know when I really like his voice?” I said.

He shook his head. “When?”

“When he rolls over in the middle of the night and says, (insert gravelly voice imitation here), “I love you babeeee.”

The color drained from his face. “Oh, my God, you’re Sherrod Brown’s wife!”

You bet I am.

Boredom eludes us.”

And of course Connie was driving:

“Sherrod and I were headed to Columbus last night when the Honda, bearing a McCain-Palin bumper sticker, first appeared on our left. I was driving.

The guy looked at us once. Did a double-take and looked at us again. He started waving his hand and mouthed, “Is that Sherrod Brown? Is that Sherrod Brown?” I smiled and nodded. Then he wagged his finger and his car started veering right-to-left, to the point where I decided to slide over just a bit. Then he leaned way across the front seat and, still yelling, gave Sherrod the finger.

OK. Fine. We kept driving, and first he pulled in front of us, then drove to the right of us, then fell behind at quite a distance. I thought it was because he saw me photograph his license plate. I always carry a camera these days, and whenever someone recognizes us and starts bullying on the road I hold it up and shoot, without a flash. Usually, they realize I’ve just captured either their faces or, in this case, the license plate, and it freaks them out enough to leave us alone.

This time, however, I looked in the rear view mirror and it was clear he wasn’t finished with us. The driver was shuffling some papers, writing something down, and then he started speeding toward us. I turned to Sherrod and said, “I think he has a sign.”

Sure enough, he pulled up close behind, then suddenly veered into the lane to our left. Driving with his left hand, he leaned far over and waved a sign that read, “1 TERM 4 YOU.”

We stared straight ahead, but he kept veering into our lane. So we switched to the far right.

And that’s the punch line, I guess.”

I’m surprised he doesn’t have a driver. It’s a little known fact that Marc Dann once used to drive for Sherrod Brown… Maybe Dann needs an extra job now?

Sherrod Brown Has the Most Partisan, Liberal Voting Record in the Senate

March 3rd, 2010 Matt Comments off

I knew how far left Sherrod Brown was ever since then Congressman Brown spoke to my middle school. And not to mention he is married to the same socialist, feminazi pinhead columnist in the upper-right corner of my website who will probably remain there at least for all of 2010.

And former House Speaker Verne Riffe had Brown figured out in 1974 when Brown was recruited to the Ohio legislature. Riffe, who was disappointed in the Yale student’s messy hair and radical ideology, referred to Brown as a “goddamn hippie sonuvabitch.”

But apparently, Ohio media outlets are just figuring out who our pot-smoking domestic abuser Senator is:

U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, really is a liberal, at least according to the National Journal, a Washington, D.C.,-based magazine that keeps a close eye on Congress.

Ratings released on Friday, Feb. 26, by the magazine showed Brown tied with three other Democrats — Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island and Ben Cardin of Maryland — for the Senate’s most liberal voting record in 2009.

Sherrod Brown, Beta Male

January 28th, 2010 Matt Comments off

Mrs. Sherrod Brown, better known as Connie Shultz, wrote this week about so-called gender income-inequality. Do you get the sense she is telling us about why she fell in love with Senator Brown?:

The memory of my parents’ struggle over who controlled the money hit me last week like a rough ride through a time tunnel after the Pew Research Center reported on the rise of the breadwinning wife. More wives are out-earning their husbands, in part because more of the lost jobs in this current recession belonged to men. But more women are getting college degrees, too, and pursuing careers. The equation of marriage is changing. As Pew reported, in 1970, 4 percent of husbands had wives who made more money. In 2007, that number rose to 22 percent.

Oh, boy. Lots of coverage about the “mancession” and “alpha wives” vs. “beta husbands.” You’d think the overwhelming majority of women were now out-earning the men folk, and in their spare time lopping off vital male anatomy just for sport.

Of course, income disparity between genders has been a serious issue for a long time. Most women still make less than men, even in comparable jobs. But the public hyperventilation over the Pew report illustrates how too many of us — men and women — are burdened with a traditional definition of manhood.

Most men, it seems, still determine their worth as human beings by the number of zeros in their take-home pay. Some women buy into this; others don’t. Hence the latest flurry of stories and blogs about high-earning women insisting their husbands must make more than they do, or lamenting that they can’t find men who make less and don’t care.

Maybe I’m reading too much into this. However, Sever held a job in his life, continued being a pot head long after his days at Yale, and… uh, oh yeah his name is “Sherrod.”

Connie, as a true product of the 60s, is still still campaigning for blurring the lines between men and women. Considering how depressing and negative her columns always are,

But if Connie is truly worried about income inequality, she will join me in opposing the Lilly Ledbetter law and other rules against workplace discrimination. Why? Because they make the expression of discrimination costless. But when market is left alone, discrimination becomes extremely expensive.

Protectionism Blows up in Zack Space and Sherrod Brown’s Faces

December 17th, 2009 Matt Comments off


WASHINGTON — A Chillicothe paper mill is losing millions of dollars in sales after becoming the unintended victim of an international trade fight sparked by the shutdown of a pilot program letting Mexican trucks operate in the United States.

Enough is enough, says Rep. Zack Space, D-Dover, who wrote to Obama administration officials yesterday pleading for “swift action to end Mexico’s imposition of retaliatory tariffs on American products.”

Congress voted to halt the truck program last spring, and Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, was one of the leading congressional critics raising safety questions about the Mexican trucks.

Space was among the large, bipartisan group of lawmakers who favored ending the program. But now, Space, whose district includes Chillicothe, wants the Obama administration to do something about the resulting trade-war fallout. Mexican officials said the trucking initiative was approved under the 1993 North American Free Trade Agreement and should have meant full access to the U.S. market years ago, not just a pilot program.

In retaliation for the shutdown of the pilot program, Mexico in March slapped a 10 percent tariff on U.S. imports of carbonless paper, part of $2.4 billion in higher tariffs on U.S. products entering Mexico.

The Chillicothe plant on S. Paint Street, owned by Pennsylvania-based Glatfelter, generates $338 million in annual sales of carbonless paper, about $12 million of that to Mexican customers.

Since the tariff went into effect, Glatfelter’s carbonless paper sales in Mexico have dropped by half, said William Yanavitch, a Glatfelter vice president.

It is fun watching politicians suck up to their union masters. NAFTA, which has been a widely abused program by protectionist politicians like Sherrod Brown and Zack Space- Roughly 55% of Ohio’s exports go to our trading partners in NAFTA: Canada and Mexico. That is higher than the national average of about 35%. And Ohio’s real problem are caused by those screaming the loudest about free-trade, as Ohio is a high-taxed, heavily unionized state without a right-to-work law.

Once politicians start pushing for trade wars on behalf of special interests (while making the costs of the goods you buy more expensive), countries have no other option but to retaliate. I couldn’t be more pleased to see Brown and Space get a taste of their own mercantilist medicine, but it a shame that a profitable, job-creating Chillicothe paper mill has to suffer in the mean time.

A Fantastic Description of Sherrod Brown

December 9th, 2009 Matt Comments off

Did you know his daughter worked for the SEIU?

The poster boy for these two broken promises is Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown. If you’ve never heard of Senator Brown he is probably most famous for being mistaken for an African-American by Rush Limbaugh because of his name. He is actually a child of privilege who was raised in Northeastern Ohio. Senator Brown has never had a “real” job. After graduating from Yale, Senator Brown entered politics taking a short break to go back to college for an advanced degree. Despite the fact Senator Brown has never worked in the private sector much less gotten his hands dirty with physical labor, he likes to see himself as a common man.[...]

Senator Brown was one of the brave legislators who when he saw how the whole open town meeting thing was going last summer staged a number of “community roundtables” in heavily Democratic areas. Senator Brown claims to have visited voters in every Ohio county but has dodged my county and my invitations to appear at a true open town meeting. His propaganda events were heavily attended by stooges from the SEIU and other Brown operatives. Public input was heavily limited and also staged as I have documented in the past. These union “workers” would have been easy for Senator Brown to turn out as his daughter is employed by the SEIU. His other daughter works for the Ohio House Democratic Caucus.

This is my second favorite description of our gargling-saltwater sounding Senator, right behind former (Democrat) Ohio House Speaker Verne Riffe’s description of Sherrod as a  “goddamn hippie sonuvabitch.”

Considering what he does in Congress, his daughters’ work, and his wife’s terrible columns, I suppose you could say they are all one big BROWN stain on Ohio.

Sherrod Brown Should Have Stayed at Yale, Smoking Pot

November 2nd, 2009 Matt Comments off

From his press office:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) announced his support for a bill that would provide for an extension of emergency benefits to unemployed workers and expand the homebuyer tax credit. Brown is a cosponsor of the Worker, Homeownership, and Business Assistance Act of 2009, which would extend unemployment insurance by 14 weeks (with an additional six weeks for workers in high unemployment states like Ohio) and expand the first-time homebuyer tax credit to include existing homeowners who have not moved for five years or more.
“This legislation is critical to getting our economy back on track,” Brown said. “Not only does the homebuyer tax credit make home ownership accessible to more Ohioans, it pumps money into our state’s economy. Unemployment insurance helps Ohioans who worked hard and played by the rules meet their household needs while stimulating the economy. This legislation will help create jobs, stabilize home prices, and rebuild communities.”

So to get the “economy back on track” we should incentivize people to stay away from entrepreneurial activity for even longer periods of time. Then, because government has such an incredible track record when it comes to manipulating the housing market, we will continue to help people live in larger houses than they could otherwise afford.

Connie Schultz Comes TO My Defense on DailyKOS… Calls Me Creepy

September 3rd, 2009 Matt View Comments


My goodness, I hate writing about myself. If I was even 1/2 as interesting as Lyndsey Teter, I’d write about myself all the time. But I have to respond to this.

First of all, thank you for filling us in on that mysterious newspaper lingo. After print newspapers go out of business soon, it will be important to document such details for historical purposes.

I’m not mentally handicapped, although I have no sense of fashion and style. For that, I apologize.

Many weeks ago, I tried to explain to Connie by email that because of her husband, at a horribly offensive speech he gave to my graduating high school class about Republicans keeping blacks from the polls in Florida during the 2000 election, I decided to become more involved in politics to stop idiots like that.

Sherrod, along with his wife, are soulless leftist agitators right out of the pages of Rules for Radicals. And I think it is smart for conservatives, who aren’t exactly the protesting types, to learn from such tactics to fight back in defense of liberty & the principles of the Constitution, which our side is effectively doing via Tea Parties. It is really the only way to fight back against Obama’s perpetual Presidential campaign squad.

I didn’t go to the event to see Connie. I went because more than a dozen of my freedom-loving friends confirmed that they would be there. I didn’t know she was there until Sherrod mentioned her.

And just because she stays awake with cold sweats thinking of me on those lonely nights while Sherrod’s away in DC finding new ways to kill off the private insurance market, doesn’t mean that I would bother FOLLOWING her. good grief

Ultimately, it is people like Connie Schultz and Joe Hallett- the type who pretend that politics is a noble profession- who will never be in on the joke. In the mean time, if ObamaCare passes and I desperately need a treatment for a serious illness which isn’t government-approved, it would be a distinct privilege if the wife of a US Senator could pull my plug in honor of our new socialist utopia. To the State, dear Commie Connie!

Connie Schultz, You Ignorant Slut

August 26th, 2009 Matt View Comments

(Update: Apparently, people who are my age and younger haven’t spent much time watching old episodes of Saturday Night Live. My apologies to anyone who didn’t understand the reference. Apparently, my lame jokes are best understood by men who are at least 50 years old.)

Connie Schultz was in this segment on state-controlled MSNBC tonight. Feel free to scroll pass more than 3 minutes of attitudinal, leftist ideological comfort-food before her segment:

Visit for Breaking News, World News, and News about the Economy

I especially enjoyed how Schultz was essentially defending her husband’s shameless use of human tragedies as stage props, as emotionally hysterical women are more memorable than facts and flow-charts. (Funny, because when I think of crying women, I am inclined to think of the ex-wife that Senator Brown used to abuse.)

The thesis of Schultz’ argument is “Trust your government. Trust my husband. They will take care of you. In loco Parentis.” And if it wasn’t clear before, it is now certain that Mrs. Schultz will not rest until everyone must plea with her husband’s office to for surgeries and treatments that might not be “approved.”

And “neighbors helping neighbors” is meaningless to Connie Schultz, as liberals like her are not exactly known for their uncoerced generosity.

And how are conservatives using fear? We are simply concerned about government taking over 15% of the private economy, and the inherent reduction in the quality of service that this sort of centralized-system leads to. In Connie’s view, is it always fear-mongering to be skeptical of government?

Instead, the only use of fear is by Connie and President Obama, who say we are in a “health care crisis!!” and yet are willing to completely scrap the “public option” for political reasons. And because lefties, using the Saul Alinsky model, thrive on fear and chaos, she did not hesitate to mention threatening phone calls from crazies or Democrat-LaRouchites comparing President Obama to Adolph Hitler.

Also, the she mentions has been known to show bias. Schultz didn’t mention non-partisan, which showed that ObamaCare will pay for abortions and it that absoutely isn’t true that everyone gets to keep their insurance under this plan.

Without the costs of ObamaCare included, the US deficit is now anywhere between $9 trillion and $14 trillion. I’m not quite sure how to picture those numbers, but if it helps- light travels roughly six trillion miles per year.

Busybody Senator Sherrod Brown’s Latest Effort to Control Your Life

August 18th, 2009 Matt Comments off

Sen. Brown is teaming up with an EVIL OIL COMPANY to encourage house weatherization. Because you can’t be trusted to adjust your house insulation by yourself:

Aug 17, 2009 — CLEVELAND, OHIO – U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) visited a Cleveland home on Friday to announce the launch of a new clean energy job training program. At a Cleveland home currently undergoing weatherization renovations that will improve its energy efficiency, Brown joined the National Community Action Foundation (NCAF) and ExxonMobil to announce funds that will be awarded to the Ohio Green Workforce Training Partnership through an inaugural grant from the NCAF ExxonMobil Weatherization Training Partnership.

“The weatherization program employs Ohio workers, using Ohio products, to lower energy costs for Ohio homeowners,” said Brown. “This program is not just about reducing energy use–it’s about job creation and economic development in Northeast Ohio.”[...]

Brown is a longtime champion of the weatherization assistance program, which helps homeowners save on energy costs through insulation improvements and energy efficiency improvements. Brown fought to increase funding for this program through the economic recovery legislation, under which Ohio is receiving more than $266 million in funds.

More insulation may be a good idea, but mandates on light bulbs, insulation, solar panels, “weatherization”  et cetera can be very expensive and takes years to pay for themselves. Not to mention that over-insulation can be quite unhealthy.

And this comes in the same month that Sherrod Brown hosted a sham town hall last week to tell us why he wants Government to control your health care and announced that Federal dollars (ie, YOUR money) will be used to do the job of venture capitalists in so called “business incubators.”

Does Brown ever get tired of advocating for more government in every aspect of our lives? Apparently not. Maybe next week, in keeping with his backwards protectionist views, his next expensive scheme could be a plan to block all access to natural light in order to boost Ohio’s artificial light industry. And why not? That proposal would certainly “create jobs.”

Sherrod Brown & Death Panels

August 14th, 2009 Matt View Comments

While radical leftist Senator Sherrod Brown is busy insulting socialized health care skeptics as brain-dead robots programmed by insurance companies, he noted that there really aren’t death panels in the proposed ObamaCare. And yesterday, it was reported that Democrats are now dropping these “nonexistent” death panels from the legislation.

But the problem is, nine states already have versions of ObamaCare- And for example, Oregon, a state with legalized euthanasia (“Good morning. The Doctor will KILL you now.”) already has death panels.

Sherrod Brown has long put populism over economic fact, so it is up to us to stop him. And regardless if explicit “consultation” boards exist to discuss with seniors their health care “options,”  the demand for a service offered for free (at the margins) will always mean demand will be greater than supply, which leads to shortages and rationing. This quite literally means government, in order to cut costs, chooses who lives and dies.

And even though Sherrod Brown is no fan of tort reform, you can bet the government will not subject itself to malpractice lawsuits once it starts playing God.

Sherrod Brown Is A Cowardly Jerk With a Terrible Hair Cut

August 14th, 2009 Matt Comments off

More videos are surfacing from Senator Sherrod Brown’s Sham Health Care Town Hall at OSU on Tuesday:

And according to his staff, Sherrod Brown is not a fan of town halls:

And if you ask a tough question, Mr. Clean would like to have a word with you outside!

In addition to the left using classic Saul Alinsky tactics by talking about Nazi imagery, they simply don’t want to believe that the outrage at these town halls about government taking over 15% of the private economy is NOT coordinated. The left can’t believe it because they are used to things being organized in a top-town Politburo fashion (such as most of Tuesday’s pro-Brown supporters), and their backwards ideology prohibits the left from understanding spontaneous order.

Remember, this ProgressOhio email blast below, which wasn’t even sent out to every member of Progress Ohio’s email list, went out the day prior at 1:13 pm the DAY BEFORE THE EVENT. Sherrod Brown’s staff handled this event exactly the way they should have if they wanted a controlled environment. But instead of a health care town hall sponsored by OSU’s medical center, it was a campaign event:

progressohio(Click the Image to Enlarge)

So for future reference, if you want to know when the next Sherrod Brown sham town hall will be, email Brian Rothenberg at . Apparently, he is politically connected enough to know when these events will occur… And those sorts of high level connections will be useful for the Rothenberg family if ObamaCare is enacted and Ohioans start having to beg Senator Brown for unapproved or expensive medical treatments to save the lives of relatives.

Sherrod Brown’s Sham Townhall

August 13th, 2009 Matt View Comments

I was there, only after seeing emails from the Ohio Democrat Party, Progress Ohio, and Obama’s neverending web campaign, but the room was small and his staff recognized me so I was not allowed in. The best report I’ve seen of it is from Shelby Holliday of UWIRE. I know Ms. Holliday, and every report she does on Ohio puts the state’s dinosaur media to shame:

Although thankfully, lots of reasonable people got to ask their questions and express their reservations about the proposed government takeover of 15% of the private economy. Here is the video I took of Senator Sherrod Brown LYING about President Obama’s support of single payer health care:

The way to make single payer happen is to have a public insurance competitor on steroids (an unfair advantage), which will slowly kill off private insurance. Sherrod Brown was the champion of single-payer health care as a Congressman (He doesn’t accept the Congressional health care insurance, which gives him more opportunities to talk about the issue as if he is “one of us.”) and he knows this sort of transitional stage is necessary to make socialized health care a a reality.

Exit Question: Why does Sherrod Brown talk like he is gargling with salt water? Perhaps he should go to Cuba and have a doctor check that out.

Ohio Democrats Not Thrilled With Obama’s Health Care Bill & Abortion Funding

July 24th, 2009 Matt Comments off

Maggie Thurber has quotes from Zack Space, John Boccieri, Mary Jo Kilroy, and Tim Ryan- all of whom have concerns about ObamaCare and could easily lose their next election based on this one issue.

And they are especially divided over the public funding of abortion:

In addition to taxes and cost containment, the Ohio delegation remains divided over abortion funding. Democrats Marcy Kaptur of Toledo and Steve Driehaus of Cincinnati say they would oppose a bill if it used Medicaid to pay for abortions.

Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Niles, an opponent of abortion rights, floated a possible compromise. In a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Ryan urged that the final version of the bill “makes clear that no insurance company will be required to pay for an abortion except in extraordinary circumstances.”

And don’t forget Sherrod Brown probably isn’t allowed snuggle up next to Connie Schultz’s award-winning hairy armpits and is still sleeping on the sofa after saying this:

Despite contrasting views on abortion, both U.S. senators from Ohio oppose including abortion coverage in any new federal health care plan, their offices said. Republican George Voinovich opposes abortion as well as government subsidies for covering abortions. Democrat Sherrod Brown backs abortion rights, but notes that current federal insurance programs don’t pay for abortions, except in cases of rape, incest, and to save the life of the mother. He says those rules should apply to future federally funded health care programs.
