Cleveland Goes Republican


Last we checked, this was a Democratic town -- chock-full of factory workers, immigrants, and people named Russo. We even, in a moment of youthful indiscretion, elected a leprechaun named Dennis to be our mayor. You don't get more liberal than that. So it's a tad shocking to discover that Cleveland and its suburbs boast not one, not two, but six Republican headquarters, all currently being used to get Ken Blackwell elected. Even East Cleveland, a third-world city so impoverished that President Bush considered invading it, has one. When it comes to begging for your money, no one does it better than the GOP. -- Lisa Rab
