Kentucky Tea Party Fav Goes Down in Defeat

    Kentucky Tea Party Favorite Goes Down. Election Day in Kentucky today. I know that the Mods encourage local diaries so here we go. Despite living in Indiana, I work in Kentucky so I consider this primary to be a semi-local election to me because so much of what happens in Kentucky affects my life (like the tax rates in the KY county I work in). | Read More »

    More liberal babble about religion and the state

    This appeared on Yahoo this morning: http://news.yahoo.com/video/us-15749625/noah-s-ark-tourist-attraction-sparks-debate-23382098. The state of Kentucky is helping to finance building of a “Noah’s Ark” tourist attraction which is projected to create about 900 jobs and boost state revenue by about $250 million a year. Erwin Chemerinsky is shown in the video criticizing this as unconstitutional because “the government should not be using its money to advance religion”. Of course, Chemerinsky | Read More »

    Stepping out, er, on…

    This has the potential to not go well. The headline is “Woman’s head stepped on by Rand Paul supporters”. I can bet that liberals and anti-Paul, anti-Tea Party types will take that line and run with it. It’s laden with assumptions and stereotype. Thoughts about Kenneth Gladney’s beating by SEIU thugs at a Russ Carnahan townhall last year come to mind, but clearly there is | Read More »

    Chris Matthews brings DOOM unto Jack Conway.

    Yes. That Chris Matthews. Matthews apparently did not personally approve of the way that Jack Conway smeared Rand Paul with a recent scurrilous ad, and so took the opportunity to smack Conway around for over seven minutes of pretty much relentless, aggressive interviewing. Yes, again: that Chris Matthews.  As I remarked just now on Twitter, watching this was like watching Jack Conway get mauled by | Read More »

    ‘I will not be shaking his hand tonight…’

    That will probably be the most quoted line from the Rand Paul / Jack Conway debate last night, and for good reason: it represents a rather drastic line in the sand drawn against the scurrilous and vituperative wave of attacks made by progressive Democrats desperate to keep their tottering Congressional majorities. The video: What Dr. Paul is referring to is this exceptionally offensive and cynical | Read More »

    Seeing Less Blue in the Bluegrass State

           In the Bluegrass State, the big story is the ascendancy of Rand Paul in the Republican Party.  He was perhaps one of the first Senate candidates to be supported by the TEA Party to go up against a party establishment nominee in the primaries.  Backed by the national GOP, the state GOP apparatus and most importantly, Mitch McConnell, Trey Grayson, the state’s Secretary of | Read More »

    Is Jack Conway surging in Kentucky?

    The last SurveyUSA poll of the Kentucky Senate race showed Republican Randal Paul running away with it from Democrat Jack Conway. However the new one tells a completely different story in its top line. When two polls by the same firm of the same race differ by that much, there has to be a story behind the story. Fortunately SurveyUSA’s detailed public reports make it | Read More »
