Lexington Mayor Jim Gray backs K.C. Crosbie over Todd Hollenbach for State Treasurer because he knows Todd is a complete waste of everything. The entire state would know it, too, if Mary John had the guts to file those suits she continually claims she’s filing. [Ryan Alessi]

Remember when Kathy Groob spent all kinds of time attempting to defame me for pointing out what she was doing as part of a political campaign? Particularly about being anti-choice? Turns out she’s pro-choice again. [Feministing]

You excited for Kentucky Tonight on KET at 8:00 P.M. Eastern Monday? Scheduled guests: Daniel Logsdon, Jennifer Moore, Steve Robertson, John David Dyche. Hopefully Robertson and Dyche will remind Dannyboy and Jennifer of the many Beshear-Conway scandals. The Republicans won’t be winning but the least they can do is hold people accountable.

    On KET, if Robertson-Dyche open the door to a discussion of “scandals”, I’m guessing the other side could fill some time discussing scandals . . . political and personal.

    Sixty minutes of negativity on KET is a wash, and Beshear wins the argument if it’s a wash.

    If Steve & John David try to hold people accountable and are met with a counter-attack on gambling, broken marriage vows, lost refrigerators, and big-screen tv’s, who really cares?

    Especially 10 hours before the poll open, and on KET, where the viewers have already made up their minds. Doesn’t move the dial and nobody’s accountable for anything.
