Monday Afternoon Roundup. Primary Eve Edition.

Dropping Cynacism and Negativity? Who said “When people drop cynacism and drop negativity and work together, we can do anything?” Guess. It wasn’t Bruce Lunsford. Peep the video for proof. Something about doing Mitch McConnell’s dirty work? [YouTube]

Former racist Klan member and 700-year member of the U.S. Senate Robert Byrd (D-WV) endorsed Barack Obama. “Barack Obama is a noble-hearted patriot and humble Christian, and he has my full faith and support,” Byrd said. [Ben Smith/Politico]

One of the names listed on Greg Fischer’s illegal Obama flyer is none other than Paula McCraney. McCraney, you’ll recall if you’re in the Louisville media market, is the former spokeswoman for the Circuit Court Clerk who was fired after “someone” unsealed documents in the prominent local murder case of Ivan Cano. [WHAS11]

Someone is making phone calls at– get this– 3:00 A.M.— to voters, claiming to be from Bruce Lunsford’s U.S. Senate campaign. The calls are not coming from the Lunsford campaign. Stinks of retarded ass Fischer campaign behavior. What’s up with this, Kim & A.J.? [Press Release]

A Frank Simon-esque mailer that is sickeningly homophobic went out across the Louisville Metro Council’s 6th District attacking Democratic candidate Ken Herndon. Herndon’s opponent, incumbent George Unseld, is holding a 3:30 press conference to denounce it.

We’ve redacted a portion of the text from the mailer (claimed to have been paid for by “Citizens for Family and Moral Values”) because it’s, well, sick and inappropriate.

Take a peek:


The front of the mailer has a photo of four men at a gay pride parade and suggests that Ken Herndon tries to hide his sexual orientation, which isn’t true. “I guess when you live a life of trash…” is just some of the fancy language used.

The back is just beyond belief. It personally attacks a member of Herndon’s campaign staff, alleging that the staffer is a drunk driver and alleging that said staffer was “charged with being a pedophile.” Yeah, that’s right. Vomit-inducing.

Is this what DEMOCRATIC politics have come to in Louisville, Kentucky’s largest city? Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is despicable.

ALERT: Gays are Taking Over America

That’s right, kids. That California Supreme Court just struck down the state’s gay marriage ban.

SAN FRANCISCO – The California Supreme Court has overturned a ban on gay marriage, paving the way for California to become the second state where gay and lesbian residents can marry.

The justices released the 4-3 decision Thursday, saying that domestic partnerships are not a good enough substitute for marriage in an opinion written by Chief Justice Ron George.

In case you were wondering: This means Kentuckians should immediately run and hide and/or start peeing their pants. The gays are taking over. They’ll slowly begin recruiting your children, infiltrating your schools, flooding the evil liberal media, and scaring people on the internets.

So get ready, “conservative” bloggers and Frank Simon disciples. Start spreading the fear.

Frank Simon Rears His Hateful Head Again

Crazy/bigoted/racist/sexist/homophobic/anti-semitic hack Frank Simon is back in action. No, he’s not blaming the Holocaust on us gays again. This time he’s endorsing Democratic candidates who not only don’t want his endorsement but never asked for his endorsement. We received reports of Simon’s activities and immediately started digging. One endorsee’s name stuck out at us. Turns out Simon chose to endorse Brent Ackerson, a Democrat running for Louisville’s Metro Council in the 26th District.

I gave Brent a call at his home last evening to get to the bottom of things. He told me– emphatically– that he never sought Simon’s endorsement, doesn’t want his endorsement and wholly denounces his endorsement. So that should set the record straight in the ongoing saga of Simon craziness.

This isn’t the first time Frank Simon has pulled this trick. He did the same thing in 2006 when he endorsed Charlie Cunningham, who was running for judge at the time. Charlie never sought nor wanted Simon’s endorsement. It’s just a tactic he uses to harm people he doesn’t like, has a grudge against or wants to lose in the general election. It’s time local media woke up to Simon’s shenanigans and put an end to them once and for all. And the Republican Party should denounce his offensive activity.

Stupid People Are Everywhere

You thought people were stupid in Bardstown? Oh jeez.

Check out this racist dude in Marietta, GA who is marketing an Obama in 08 t-shirt with CURIOUS GEORGE peeling a banana on the front of it.

The publishing company that owns the Curious George image says it is considering legal action to stop the sale of a T-shirt depicting Barack Obama as the monkey from children’s books.

The T-shirts are being peddled by Marietta bar owner Mike Norman at his Mulligan’s Bar and Grill in Cobb County. They show a picture of Curious Georgie peeling a banana, with the words “Obama ’08” underneath.

VOMIT.

Clinton Campaign Pushing Racist Buttons

This is probably the most stupid thing the Clinton campaign has done to date. Seriously. The Clinton campaign’s latest “Rapid Response” email blast is about Barack Obama and his problem with whites.

The message includes a full article from Juan Williams of the New York Daily News and, you guessed it, is all about how Hillary is the only person who can win because white people like her/hate Obama or whatever. Read the story for yourself.


Today’s Must Read: Barack Obama’s got a growing problem with whites

New York Daily News (NY): Face it, Democrats: Barack Obama’s got a growing problem with whites
BY JUAN WILLIAMS

Hillary Clinton, down to her last straw, is making the case that she is the better candidate to run against the Republicans because, unlike Barack Obama, she can win white Democrats.

She is right. But because she is daring to touch the hot button of racial politics, she is being told to shut up or risk being charged with exploiting racial tensions for political advantage.

Gagging yet? Read the rest by clicking here.

Oh Snap Monday! Obama’s in Kentucky Edition

One in five Kentuckians are insane and should be committed. According to the Herald-Leader/WKYT poll, one in five say, essentially, they won’t vote for Obama because he’s black. But 56% interviewed said race wasn’t a factor. Thank goodness the entire state isn’t beaten regularly with the stupid stick. Except this idiot, Bill Donovan of Inez, who thinks Obama is a Muslim. Why even do a poll in KENTUCKY about race and gender? The H-L also told us at 11PM that Hillary is leading the presidential primary in Kentucky. Wasted money much? [PolWatchers]

In case you’ve forgotten, general Barack Obama will be in Kentucky this evening so people like Olivia Morris Fuchs can protest outside of the Kentucky International Convention Center! Errr, actually it’s so Obama’s camp can rally the troops for his eventual loss in Kentucky on May 20 and the eventual national nomination when Hillary finally gives up. 7:00 P.M. tonight. Thousands expected, he’ll be McCain-focused and will mostly ignore Clinton. [Page One]

Danny Briscoe says Greg Fischer’s ads have been so bad that he should sue the people who made them. Oh, and that they have no effect because no one knows who Greg Fischer is. We’re talking Danny Briscoe, a man aligned with every Lunsford-hating entity on the east coast. [The Morehead News]

Many Republican bloggers are trying to ignore this. The Executive Branch Ethics Commission reprimanded Robert H. Wilson, Jr., a former Fletcher personnel official, for taking part in hirings and firings based on politics instead of merit. The Ethics Commission has five more related cases to handle: Dan Druen, Darrell Brock, Basil Turbyfill, James Adams and Dick Murgatroyd. [C-J]

Speaking of Republicans, some enjoy obfuscation so much that they refuse to admit that Great Britain has been as racist as could be for a loooong time. Oh, no, gotta blame liberals for racism. Because “liberal” is a dirty word. FYI: “liberal” doesn’t mean the same thing every where you go unless you’re a Republican. [BGRS]

How does poverty affect health care in Kentucky? Here’s your chance to examine it on a county-by-county level. [Stephen Shepard]

In an interview with the Herald-Leader, Michael Cassaro still thought he could win the senate primary. And he said he had no political baggage. We guess that means he’s paid his campaign staff, didn’t try to cover up harrassment allegations and didn’t have his attorney try to keep former staffers quiet. [H-L]

In addition to what’s in the Cassaro story above, here’s some info on the also-rans in the U.S. Senate race. [C-J]
