The Kentucky Democratic Republican Party will pretend this isn’t based in reality: Obama, as we’ve noted before, has performed especially poorly in West Virginia and Oklahoma, where he took less than 60 percent of the vote. (His top opponent in West Virginia was a federal inmate in Texas, while in Oklahoma it was an anti-abortion rights activist). Obama also took just 77 percent in Louisiana, where several other candidates split up the vote. In the same vein, the Arkansas and Kentucky primaries tonight are likely to include significant numbers of Democrats spurning the president. In the former, Obama faces a one-on-one contest against attorney John Wolfe , while in the latter, he faces the “uncommitted” option. [WaPo]

Late last Friday, Buzzfeed reporter and Rolling Stone contributor Michael Hastings broke what looked like a big scoop: Congress was quietly planning to lift a 64-year-old law preventing the US government from using propaganda on its own citizenry. Before the House passed its defense budget bill Friday afternoon, Hastings reported, a bipartisan group of congressmen tacked on an amendment that would “essentially neutralize” a set of time-tested guidelines “that had been passed to protect U.S. audiences from our own government’s misinformation campaigns.” [Mother Jones]

    “Sometimes Only God Knows”

    The anti-gay pastor of Hager Hill Freewill Baptist Church in eastern KY apparently allows his flock “free will” only in an ironic sense. His form of free will is evidently to force his own obnoxious ideology on them. I thought such Baptists believed that every individual is created in God’s image and has the capacity to exert free will. Someone needs to set the “Right Reverend” STRAIGHT and free him of his prejudices. I also thought we were all God’s children. What say yee, discriminatory shepherd of your brethren and sisters?
