Flashback To 2006 With Newbie John Yarmuth

June 19th, 2013 · Comments Off

Remember this ad from John Yarmuth? That’s from September 2006. It’s a real shame he hasn’t had a credible opponent, you know, ever. Because we can only imagine how good the ads would be.

Abramson Wasted More Than Originally Thought

June 27th, 2011 · Comments Off

Jerry Abramson didn’t spend $180,000 out of his fancy discretionary fund. Turns out he spent some $214,000. And you know what? Receipts for what the money was spent on are essentially non-existent. So no wonder Matt Erwin at the KDP lost his shiz last week. [C-J/AKN] Activists are calling for stronger enforcement of the Clean [...]

Oh Snap Monday! It’s Still Holiday Slow Time

December 28th, 2009 · Comments Off

Haha, so, funny story… senile Jim Bunning was the only senator to skip the health care vote. Because he had “family commitments.” [Amanda Vanbenshoten] The Kentucky Division of Abandoned Mine Lands received $37.6 million in federal funding.

Yarmuth’s New Opponent Making Shiz Up
