Oh, hey, it is Friday afternoon. Are you upset that your MacBook Pro still hasn’t shipped from China? Us too. I mean, who cares that it’s been “Prepared for Shipment” for three days?
Oh, did you know? We are going to waste our entire afternoon listening to this new Keane album released on Monday while drinking some elitist tea. We may even go enjoy some lady treats with some ladies, which you can’t do, because, well, who cares?
Also, we want to see that movie, W. So. Take us to see it.
The Republican Party of Kentucky is upset with Steve Henry confidant and State Senator Joey Pendleton and has requested that Attorney General Jack Conway investigate him. Pendleton violated terms of his employment with Murray State University by accepting salary from the school on days when he was actually in Frankfort on legislative duty. We’re including the RPK’s letter along with supporting documents. [RPK Letter & Documents (PDF Link)]
Louisville Metro Council President Jim King, known Mitch McConnell supporter, father of notorious and inexperienced attorney Katie King, and all-around asshat is effing things up in Louisville. Again. Imagine that. To think this guy thinks he’d make a great mayor for the city. In other news, he still hasn’t been cleared of involvement in the anti-gay Ken Herndon mailer from May.

Seems that every year Auditor Crit Luallen’s office tells Morgan County Sheriff Mickey Whitt the same thing. Clean up your act, follow the law, handle your banking like an adult and do what you’re supposed to do. And every year he forgets to, you know, do anything. He’s not the only one.

Not a rumor: Guess which boyfriend of a State Party political chair got upset when he was compared to a member of an opposing party. We call them like we see them here. And. Uh. It’s clear that the other side is better at “live blogging” for the Courier-Journal or whatever. [We Get Emails]
From the department of bullshiz and wasted money. Richie Farmer, Kentucky’s figurehead of an Agriculture Commissioner, is offering a contract for someone who wants to clip newspaper, magazine and interet references to… Richie Farmer, the department and its Kentucky Proud brand. The previous contract was $8,400 per year. And. Uh. We’re calling bull on this one. What a waste. SET UP GOOGLE ALERTS! Stop flushing money down the toilet. [PolSmo…watchers]
WATB Mitch Chickenhawk McConnell whined and complained to the Courier-Journal editorial board this morning. He defended his sickening attack ads against Bruce Lunsford, which he can’t back up at all. It’s too bad that like 900% of voters claim negative b.s. ads don’t work on them. And it’s too bad that the other 900% of people are brainless and believe everything they see on the teevee. [WHAS11]
