Let's review all the accurate predictions and spot-on analysis from the Kamrass supporters this year:
Kamrass for the WIN said...
"The 28th won't even be close."
- You're right, it wasn't.
"If you've spoken with Dever at all in the last week, you know that he knows he is going to lose."
- I'd suggest you listen more closely next time, or become a better liar.
"Micah Kamrass is the choice of everyone except a few fringe wacko nutjobs who love Dever's hate. Jonathan Dever is a mentally ill psychopath who takes advice from the angriest loser in all of politics."
- Do you think any Dever campaign advisors are angry right now? Someone from the Kamrass campaign needs to quit projecting.
Blue Ash Bomber said...
"One person who will never win this award is that carpet-bagging, negative-campaigning Tea Partier Jonathan Tyler Dever because he will never be elected to anything"
- Sorry, what were you saying?
Toss Out said...
"Anyone who thinks this race is still a toss up is living in serious denial. The nasty campaign run by Dever, I mean by the Republican Party with absolutely no input from Dever whatsoever is turning voters away from the GOP in drives."
- And we certainly can see that was true.
"After all the lies, all the smears, all the venomous hatred being spewed by Dever and the GOP is going to leave a bad taste in the mouths of voters for a very long time. Dever isn't just sinking himself. He is turning large numbers of suburban voters against the entire Republican Party."
- Maybe this is happening in a shithole like Springdale, but this year suburban voters couldn't find enough Republicans to support, including Dever.
Let's Face It said...
"Democrat Micah Kamrass has the party unified behind him. Democrat Micah Kamrass has nearly $100,000 in the bank. Tea Party Republican Jonathan Dever just ran a nasty campaign that greatly offended much of the Republican organization in Blue Ash, Sharonville and Reading, three communities which Republicans need to win big in order to have a chance. Tea Party Republican Jonathan Dever has almost no cash left.
So, instead of a Republican tax-hiker winning this seat, it will once again stay in the Democrats' column with their own tax-hiker.
Once again, Republicans' bitter infighting and complete political ineptitude hands the Democrats a seat on a golden platter and will give Democrats yet another launching pad for an ambitious politician."
- And this, ladies and gents, is what a dumbass writes.
Simply Amazing said...
"The Dever campaign is so bad that Campaign Expert Matheny will finally win one, with help from such upstanding citizens as Jerry Springer, Stan Chesley, and Al Sharpton."
- Tell me more about how bad the Dever campaign was.
The Former Future said...
"What an amazing year! I went from candidate to campaign manager to campaign groupie while working so hard to make a difference in the lives of children at a still-undisclosed location. It might seem like a fall from grace to certain self-righteous hypocrites. Even so, I'll have had a better year than Dever."
- So I guess you won your Judicial race Susannah?
That's Right said...
"Dever won a primary by a mere 66 votes, with a last minute attack mailer that Rick Bryan had no way of responding to. It was effective, to be sure. The problem is that none of that has worked against Micah Kamrass and this time Dever is alienating Republicans he needs n order to win. Face it, the nasty campaign run by a nasty person is toxic in the 28th,"
- For Dever to win by 12 points something sure worked. Like not listening to you, for example.
Boss Burke said...
"Hey, guys, thanks for making it so easy for us to keep the 28th in Democratic hands, and for giving us a shot in the 27th now, too."
- It was our pleasure Bossman. Now you've got Micah to shine shoes and run errands full time.
Ohio House Democrats said...
"Thanks for letting us keep the 28th. So glad you're comfortable having the distinction of the most Republican district actually represented by a Democrat. Please, keep nominating those extremist nutjobs"
- Please keep nominating those electable candidates like Micah Kamrass, Joe Otis, and Chris Redfern.
Let's Face It said...
"Micah Kamrass has 20 times as much cash on hand as the Republican nominee, who is too extreme for the Tea Party. He won despite being slightly outspent because of huge last-minute smear campaign. He faces a much wider funding Gap in the general, and he will not have the luxury of his cronies running such a nasty last-minute campaign, since COAST lacks the resources for effective general election messaging. Coast and the Tea Party can get their extremist candidates through a primary but not the general when so many people vote and when so many people reject the last minute smear tactics and extremist messages COAST pumps out. Turns out, this candidate is too extreme for the Tea Party. He will get little if any help from he state party and even most members of he local party want nothing to do with him. Yet another winnable seat taken away from the Republicans by conservative extremist evangelicals."
- Blah blah blah. The new guard defeated Rick Bryan, get over your bitterness.
Trust Me said...
"Micah Kamrass will get more votes from Republicans than any Democrat besides Dusty Rhodes ever has. This is what happens when a weakened Republican Party kowtows to the extremists and doesn't support one of our own. This is what happens when the Party looks the other way when their right flank campaigns dishonestly and their candidate sneaks in on a smear campaign. This is what happens when the Party acts like none of the above ever happened and trot out their standard line about supporting the primary's winner, even though no one seriously believes that they do. I hope the Ohio House Republican Operating Campaign is taking note of the shenanigans conducted by the carpet-bagging extremists, learns from past extremist nutjob candidates we've shamefully selected as our nominee, and doesn't waste $100,000 on the 28th District this time. Find some winnable races elsewhere in the state to offset the fact that in Hamilton County the inmates are running the asylum"
- Please keep sharing your wisdom with us.
Tim Burke said...
"So proud of Alex for seeing to it that an unelectable candidate was nominated for this seat, yet again. Thanks for letting us keep the 28th. We're really enjoying our control of the sheriff's office, as you may have noticed.
Your Good Friend Tim Burke"
- We were happy to take this seat back from you.
Dever supporters everywhere
Oh No said...
"Deceitful Dever's past is catching up to him in a big way. He won't even show his face in public by November 4th."
- Do you think he'll show up for his swearing-in ceremony? I know you won't.
Bitter Is as Bitter Does said...
"The only bitter people are the angry lonely Republican white male sociopaths who have never been able to win in the 28th and never will, because bigotry is never going to get a majority here. It doesn't matter if it's the angry wing nuts in Columbus or he jobless losers here in Cincinnati. Voters here aren't buying the hate you're selling."
- C'mon, don't talk about Rick Bryan's supporters like that!
Here We Go Again said...
"Thank you, Republicans, for backing yet another loser if a candidate for a very winnable seat."
- Yes, thank you to losers like Julie Matheny, Mark Painter, Walt Reuszer, and Royal Doyle Webster for messing up Micah's campaign instead of Dever's. We couldn't have done it without you.
Blue Rock said...
"All across the United States, a red wave is building, Republicans will gain in the US. House. The GOP will pick up a slew of Senate seats. Elsewhere in Ohio, it is looking like a Reoublican rout, thanks in no small part to The Wreck of the Edward FitzGerald. Republicans are looking great from sea to shining sea. Except in Hamilton County, that is. Republicans are set to lose a 57% index seat-- yet again-- because the party nominated an angry, hateful, divisive person who won't tell us what he will do because then the voters would really reject him. At the same time, Republicans will lose the probate court judgeship because they out up a socially awkward and uninspiring judge with no name ID outside of Green Township to run against a man with universal name recognition who is still seen as a beloved conservative on the west side. Way to go."
- Now I know who to get my advice from.
Blue Rock said...
"Micah Kamrass can take a million dollars from Satan himself and still win this race. The reason? His opponent is a mean, nasty, divisive individual who actually turns off the people he meets during campaigning door to door. Dever is the worst candidate for a competitive office I've seen the GOP put up in more than 30 years. It isn't that Dever is conservative. Chris Monzel and Steve Chabot are to the right of the center of their constituents, no doubt about it. Dever is running a nasty campaign with a caustic personality. He is the male version of Jean Schmidt. Thanks to the cosmic ineptitude of Chairman Alex, the 28th will be a blue rock that can withstand the red wave otherwise washing over the United States."
- Oh, you're still here Blue Rock? Please keep sending us your great analysis.
No Laughing Matter said...
"A sneaky last minute mailer isn't going to work anymore after the nastiness Dever has spewed in the general. I am glad to have sat the primary out because Rick wasn't going to win this either. The simple fact is that the Republicans can't win close races like this because three don't get good candidates and don't run good campaigns. They are the Ohio StateBuckeyes of politics. Three win races they are supposed to win but they are too dysfunctional to win he close ones anymore."
- Well let's see - Dever did win, and so did Ohio State. You're 0-2, just like the rest of those "Rick Bryan Republicans for Kamrass" losers.
Here We Go Again said...
"Republican attempts to smear their way into winning the 28th will fail... again."
- Thankfully the Democratic smear machine failed.
