And don't forget to subtract penalty points for not giving proper credit to Representative Louis Gohmert
This afternoon’s Ogden “newspaper” defended President Trump by resorting to the style and level of argument used by Representative Louis Gohmert (R, Texas). The Republican congressman from Texas is infamous for his racism, sexism, nativism, and fill-in-the-blankism. (Typical is when he wanted to make César Chavez's birthday "National . . .
Ohio State scandal and powerful liberals
Intelligencer editorial: Ohio State scandal is “disturbing”
One of this morning’s Wheeling Intelligencer editorials is concerned about what has been uncovered in the investigation of the Ohio State wrestling scandal:

The West Virginia economy: so much winning!

Time to cut spending: now that the rich got their tax cut, the Wheeling Intelligencer wants us to worry about the national debt
Not too predictable: this morning’s Intelligencer editorial wants us to rein-in spending
It’s been a while, but we now have editorial #3 on the national debt since the Republican tax cuts were passed last year. If you remember, our local “newspapers” couldn’t write enough great things about the tax cuts while they were being debated. . . .
