Thursday Afternoon Update Dept of Craziness

July 31st, 2008 · 23 Comments

Did you know? Martin Cothran says a story about gay-hating really had nothing to do with gay-hating. How quaint. Also, Jake thinks he’s “big stuff” these days. And yeah, those who do nothing but complain about the gays all the time are probably closet queens, Marty. For example: Mark Foley, Larry Craig, Glenn Murphy, Jr. […]

Most Sickening Story of the Week: Toby Keith is a Racist Hack, Just Like Sonny Landham

July 31st, 2008 · 38 Comments

You’ve gotta read this story: Toby Keith’s Pro-Lynching Publicity Tour Hits Colbert, CBS and More While Keith belted out “Beer For My Horses,” Colbert’s studio audience clapped to the beat, blithely unaware that they were swaying to a racially tinged, explicitly pro-lynching anthem that calls for the vigilante-style hanging of car thieves, “gangsters doing dirty […]

More Mitch McConnell Hypocrisy? Oh Yeah

July 31st, 2008 · 3 Comments

We love that Mitch McConnell is continually opening the hypocrisy door because it’s eventually going to bite him in the butt. His latest mess? He’s released a new attack ad complaining that Bruce Lunsford has investments in big oil. Never mind that Mitch himself owns up to $250,000 (PDF Link) in a fund that invests […]

Interesting State House Leadership Rumors

July 31st, 2008 · 5 Comments

We hear through the grape vine that University of Louisville president Jim Ramsey is making telephone calls in support of Larry Clark in the Speaker Pro-Tem race against Joni Jenkins. We’re pretty sure this is bad news for Larry Clark. Aside from the fact that Clark was probably the only person other than Tony Lindauer […]

Thursday. Day Before The Dead Pig Picnic.

July 31st, 2008 · 14 Comments

Be glad you’re not Chris Koster, a party-switcher running for attorney general in Missouri. His ex-wife bought nearly $200,000 in airtime ti take down his campaign. How insane is this? WE LOVE IT! [KC Star] Jim Bunning is suddenly all upset over China’s spying and poor treatment of, you know, everyone. He apparently isn’t familiar […]

Does Mitch McConnell Know Where He Lives?

July 30th, 2008 · 7 Comments

Apparently not. It may seem silly to get picky over how Mitch McConnell signs his letters to major newspapers. But you’d think when running the most fiery re-election campaign of your U.S. Senate career, you’d want to make sure every last one of your constituents believes you’re a tried and true Kentuckian, right? Right. On […]
