Television shlock jock Jerry Springer has just announced that he will not be running for the Senate in Ohio, as he fears that his connection to his show will hurt his ability to get his message across. (Translation: he realized that his negative opinion numbers mean that there’s no chance in hell he could win. A recent poll had his negative number running around 70%.)
I’m sure all the neo-Nazi midget strippers who had been abducted by aliens and forced to endure Beta-Reticulan dieting techniques will be terrifically disappointed that their man won’t be in the Senate race. Springer’s false populism was as sickening as his trashy show, and his hasty exit from politics is a good thing for the state of Ohio and the nation at large.
