DeWine says dad was wrong about judicial filibusters (Howard Wilkinson, 5/27/05, Cincinnati Enquirer)

In an effort to make sure the "sin'' of the father isn't visited on the son, Republican candidate Pat DeWine made it clear Thursday he doesn't approve of the role his father, Sen. Mike DeWine, played this week in brokering a deal with Senate Democrats over judicial filibusters.

"I wouldn't have voted the way he did,'' the Hamilton County commissioner said Thursday. "If a person is appointed to the federal bench, he or she deserves an up-or-down vote.''

Ah, blood guilt.

that's why dear leader and baby assad and teddy kennedy are so different from their fathers. maybe the son is a great candidate, in which case he can try again as soon as his father is out of office.

of course the irony is, the son is showing the same loyalty as the father :)

Interesting point, but throwing Teddy Kennedy into the same subordinate clause as Kim and Assad, that's cold.
