Okay, ladies and dudes, are Tom Jurich and Rod Blagojevich separated at birth or what? Similar hair, similar wardrobe, similar swagger. They both love having a huge ego. Both love playing dirty. Both get people fired if they don’t like what they have to say. Creeped out?
We hear through the terrible, America-hating rumor circuit here in Kentucky that DSCC folks are heavily researching Jack Conway (and everyone else) for 2010. Call us crazy, but we’re pretty sure no Democrat will be able to beat Trey Grayson. What a race this is shaping up to be.

Jim King and David Tandy are going to fight each other until the bloody end. The King Mafia will probably try to print “Dr. King” signs for the west end again, he’ll figure out a way to get his daughter to, oh, who knows?, he’ll take all of your money and starve you to death and David will continue not being corrupt. And in other news, both want to be mayor. One will use the office for personal gain and for getting revenge. One won’t. [LEO Weekly]
