He's creepy looking alright, and apparently he likes rape more than most people.

That said, I had never heard of the guy so I checked out his wikipedia page and I was astounded how someone w/ virtually zero finance experience can be elected as treasurer for a state w/ $1.5B+ in tax revenue. I run the treasury for a public company w/ ~$2B in net revenue, and it took ten years of direct experience plus CFA/MBA to get the job. Talk about setting the bar at a different level...

I know. I'm working otherwise I would watch it. Mandel is firmly in a "Dead girl, Live boy" situation. It will take a massive collapse by Brown for him to win. Expect Mandel to possibly go full Tea Party.

I will admit that I voted for Mandel for treasurer. I didn't know much about either candidate in that race at the time so I kinda bit into the Vet ads (Since I myself am a vet). Teach me to not do my homework. First thing Mandel did in office was announce he is running for the Senate. Just curious though, what is this facebook stuff you are talking about?

Once upon a time, I had Republican friends of mine touting Josh Mandel as the Next Big Thing in the Ohio GOP. Smart kid, former Marine, etc etc.

Then the party anointed him to take on Sherrod Brown and it all went straight to his head. No shows for his Treasurer job and fills his assistant positions with friends. Brown's been teeing off on that all year long and its been paying off in the polls. Mandel's about to become a political footnote and he's not even 40.

So, yeah. Desperate former Marine is desperate.

I'm no fan of Sherrod Brown, but Mandel is a weasly egomaniac. He managed to get himself elected as Ohio's treasurer, then held that position for about three months before declaring his candidacy for the Senate. Look, moron, you knew Brown was up for re-election in 2012...finish the job you were elected to (even if you're woefully unqualified), then run for a bigger public office (if you manage to survive your term without screwing up too bad). And just because you were in the Marine Core doesn't make you qualified to be a US Senator any more than Lee Harvey Oswald.
