Candidates invade Ohio

# 341, October 31, 2004

COLUMBUS: All four of the big candidates are in Ohio today... Bush, Kerry, Cheney, Edwards. They're all here. They descended on Ohio and said they aren't gonna leave until every registered voter in the state, a hundred percent of them, agree to vote Tuesday. At least once.

These four have been here all along, just not at the same time. Why, I bet this is the first time they've ever been in the same state on the same day. Or for that matter, even in Washington, D.C.

Ohio is looking for a huge voter turnout. Right here in Franklin County they have 850,000 registered to vote. Out of a voting age population of 825,000 that ain't bad. Cleveland says they have 20,000 that's registered to vote in Ohio and Florida.

So don't be surprised if the total count equals the number of bonafide registered living voters, kinda the way it used to be in Chicago plus a few dead ones.

Well, politics ain't all that’s been in the news. After 86 years the Boston Red Sox broke the spell, with some help from a full moon and a total eclipse. The St. Louis Gashouse Gang had a great season but they picked the wrong time to run out of gas. The Red Sox had Curt Shilling, and the Cardinals didn't have any pitchers even close to Dizzy Dean.

College football had the Bedlam Battle in Oklahoma . The Sooners held on to beat the Cowboys. That football game was just a preliminary to the bedlam in their Senate election Tuesday. In Florida the Big 3 lost, which is almost as rare as the Red Sox winning the World Series.

Old Osama bin Laden tried to horn in on our election. He didn't come right out and say who he's for, but from the tone of the message I would say he favors Ralph Nader.

Historic quotes from Will Rogers:

"Conditions and not oratory is going to settle this next election." Radio broadcast, June 9, 1935

"There is only one redeeming thing about this whole election. It will be over at sundown, and let everybody pray that it's not a tie, for we couldn't go through with this thing again." DT #1953, Nov. 7, 1932
