CINCINNATI (TDB) -- The GOP chairman in Cincinnati slipped out of Ohio for a vacation in an undisclosed location where there are palm trees and beaches. He says it's a Republican-controlled paradise. But he's uncharacteristically sour, calling Sen. Barack Obama a "self-proclaimed messiah" and "an empty suit." Maybe it's the heat. Or maybe margaritas fueled such brilliantly intellectual political commentary. He's definitely on par (sarcasm alert) with William F. Buckley's erudition. If Alex Triantafilou can find a single instance of Obama proclaiming himself the messiah, The Daily Bellwether will gladly send him a case of Corona to drown his political sorrows at the beach. If not, he should apologize and run across Fountain Square in a Speedo at high noon on a work day in August. Then people could decide who really is the "empty suit." Here's Triantafilou from the beach:
"I've really built a dislike for this Obama message and the man himself. A few months ago, I thought he was an attractive candidate and, as a political observer, I was impressed by his political skills. No more. He's an empty suit and a true believing ideological liberal who will kill the American entrepreneurial spirit by promoting class warfare, raising taxes on prosperity, and imposing a radical social agenda on America."
