As if Republicans needed yet another reason not to vote for Leslie Ghiz...

...today we hear the news that she has been endorsed by the Republican Leadership Council. The RLC is a group of left-leaning Republicans whose express goal is to drive the party further to the left. They call it "the middle," but believe me when I tell you, it is not that. Mark my words, gentle readers: This is the path of disaster and electoral defeat. Just ask, well, pretty much all the Republicans who lost in Ohio last year because of the "moderate" sixteen years we had under Voinovich and Taft. We do not need to be grooming more leaders in that mold.
Also disturbing: The email trumpeting this news contains a link to Leslie's campaign website, where we read:
Leslie is engaged to be married shortly after the November election. She and her fiancé, Steve, reside in North Avondale.
I know we are well past the point where we can expect model behavior from politicians, but when did we pass the point that they stopped pretending? I mean, why put this information out there? Not classy. At all.
