Mike Wilson’ll Just Cold Conversatize You Maybe

March 31st, 2010 · 9 Comments

The best thing about Insight Communications’ broadband service? When there’s a failure every day. That way you forget about the 600 weekly piece of junk mail pushing “Insight Phone,” increased rates for decreased service and sloooow data speeds.

Okay. Which Way Is It, Lt Dan?

March 31st, 2010 · 4 Comments

Is Jack Conway for the coal-energy barons or is he against them? Here’s what you said in your latest email blast/fundraising request: My opponent’s cozy ties with utility executives and lobbyists, as well as his bragging about being the preferred candidate of the Washington establishment, equals more of the same for Kentuckians.  If you want [...]

March 31st, 2010 · Comments Off
