Every time Sherrod Brown opens his mouth, it just makes me want to put my head in my hands and sob. How did this guy ever get elected?

This time, here is the quote:

Reid may not be able to count on the full support of his own party for the measure, as liberal Democrats are protesting its heavy emphasis on tax breaks. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) said the parts of the bill he’s seen haven’t convinced him to back it.

“Why not think about things like taxing bonuses and send money directly into small-business loans?” Brown said. “Things like that we need to be talking about, not some of the same old, same old.”

This is truly spoken by a guy who has never been in business. First, most “bonuses” are paid in small businesses, because the cash flow is too uncertain to support a steady payroll. Second, in many businesses, the “bonus” is actually part of the compensation, usually as an incentive to high production. So, once again, Ohio’s moron Senator wants to discourage productivity by taxing it. Then he wants to take the money earned by businesses and loan it back to them.

This guy is way too hopey changey for me. And for Ohio. We need someone in office with actual real world experience.

We can hardly wait to dump Sherrod in the next available election. Too bad we have to wait until 2012.
