Quote
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland, a Democratic Senate candidate, has apologized for cheering the timing of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's death.

"My friends," the former governor said Monday at an Ohio AFL-CIO event in the Cleveland area, a lot of average citizens out there don't understand the importance of that court.

"I mean, the death of Scalia saved labor from a terrible decision," Strickland continued, as his audience clapped and laughed. "And I don't wish anyone ill, but it happened at a good time, because once that decision had been made it would have been tough to reverse it."

The Republican presidential nominee just threatened to assassinate his leading opponent, and the Plain Dealer is up in arms about this???

Shame on the Plain Dealer.

If only he were Trump, then this would be proof that he's a politically incorrect, no-nonsense guy who tells it like it is. Since he's not, though, this is a bone-headed thing to say.

Scalia's death was the best thing to happen in 2016.  He was a truly evil person and the world is a slightly better place now that he is no longer in it.  RIH Scalia.

No Ted, you don't say such things. As much as I disagree with Scalia's views, I wish he would have just retired instead of died.

Any Democrat cheering at these remarks disqualifies himself from adopting morally superior attitude toward Trump and all the right wing nutjobs.

I know, for Strickland it was likely an one-time slip, but we're suppoused to be better than this, right?

It was an awful thing to say, and in any other election this could even be a career-ender, but thanks to Donald Trump the GOP can't attack him on this. Cheesy

Strickland is right, though.  I like Supreme Court justices who don't die in the middle of their job.

That was a terrible thing to say. This is even worse than Trump's comments. Disgusting.
