Josh Mandel = Jim DeMint

*  The far right Republicans and their PACS are targeting Sen. Sherrod Brown (OH-D). The smear campaign pushed by conservative, anti-middle class, pro-corporate groups hope to put empty suit Republican, Josh Mandel, in the Senate. Mandel supported SB 5 and has supported drilling in our state parks. Newser has all the details on the far right money.

Josh Mandel is still going on the attack against Sherrod Brown.  However, Mandel is very tight-lipped about revealing his own views/goals (see Cleveland).  It could be that Josh Mandel's opinions are so far to the right that Ohioans would shudder at the prospect of someone promoting the same extremist, Tea Party policies of Sen. Jim DeMint.

Some people in the Ohio Republican Party are hoping for the failure of the Kasich administration so that their favorite, Jon Husted, could move into the office of Ohio Governor. Husted is far more ambitious than just being Ohio Secretary of State. He has been heavily supported by big time contributor/charter school owner, David Brennan. 


> If the name "Cheetah" makes you think of a chimp, you obviously are old enough to remember the Tarzan/Jane/Cheetah movies.  Cheetah, the chimp, has just passed away.


A Florida animal sanctuary says Cheetah the chimpanzee sidekick in the Tarzan movies of the early 1930s has died at age 80.

The Suncoast Primate Sanctuary in Palm Harbor announced that Cheetah died Dec. 24 of kidney failure....

....Cheetah was the comic relief in the Tarzan films that starred American Olympic gold medal swimmer Johnny Weissmuller. Cobb says Cheetah came to the sanctuary from Weissmuller's estate sometime around 1960.....

Cheetah was definitely an important part of the films.
