Scott Alexander is know for being so damned dumb that if he’d made this comment, we could assume he didn’t know basic geography and didn’t misspeak. With Williams, who knows how to both speak English and not look like a total dumba** whenever he’s in public, you can assume it was a simple slip of the tongue. Stupid ad.

But the people in Harlan and Bell love it. All it does is remind them when Mongiardo took a jar of local water and showed to Williams and Williams said, “what is that your urine, hu, hu, hu”. He laughed his big ass off after this comment on the ad. So screw him! Tying Smith and Williams together in a very good political move, because the people hate Williams so much here.

That is, his first trip out of Frankfort and out IN the state is to Harlan and Bell. Dumb ad indeed, we all know Williams didn’t say that and didn’t mean what the ad implies. His own district is a mountain district.

Ah that poor man, we should send David Williams a nice fruit basket for displaying him as the devil he is. Very Effective!

The reason this ad is ineffective is that folks who aren’t politcally active dont have any friggin clue who David Williams is. I know that will seem shocking to all of you…but outside of Frankfort and his own District, Williams is not a household name. Not an effective ad the last week of the race. And seriously…Scott Alexander is such a bafoon i simply cannot understand why the party wanted him so badly. You CAN live in the mountains and speak the King’s English!!

David Williams: Wrong Prepositions, Wrong for Bell and Harlan counties.
Is that all Alexander’s got?

Bitt – Actually Scott Alexander does or did have more. I love Cyberhillbilly and his blog, especially since it shows Alexander’s past legislative record:

Voters’ Choice in House 84:
An Expensive Suit or an Empty One
Former State Rep. Scott Alexander was once ranked the State House’s least effective member. But that isn’t stopping him from throwing everything including the kitchen sink at incumbent Rep. Brandon Smith in his bid to unseat Smith.
In what has to be one of the most unusual low blows (albeit not the lowest) in the campaign season, Alexander is accusing his opponent of… I hope you’re sitting down for this… it’s a real shocker… “wearing $2,000.00 suits”, “gold cuff links” and going to receptions. Huh?
His ad also accused Smith of being too close to Governor Fletcher. Even the Herald Leader shot this one down: In reality, however, few GOP lawmakers have been more outspoken critics of Fletcher than Smith, who vocally opposed the governor’s move to change how coal severance tax funds are distributed in counties.
During his four year tenure in the State House Scott Alexander passed a single bill. Shockingly, he wasn’t even able to garner the UMWA’s endorsement despite his experience in the coal industry. Meanwhile, here’s what the Herald Leader had to say about Smith:
“Smith has played a leading role in several key pieces of legislation. He sponsored a bill in 2003 that gives disabled children a choice in their care. And he co-wrote legislation this year that created a supplemental fund to help small businesses cover their employees’ health insurance. He has written 29 bills during his six years in office, and six of the bills have passed, making him one of the more productive members of the minority Republican caucus.”
So the choice voters in Harlan and Perry County’s 84th House District face is simple: do they want an expensive suit in Frankfort or an empty one?

Steve Bittenbender : All Smith has is that Steve Beshear was mean to Roger Noe. I’d say there about even.
