Michael Cassaro Supports The Gays

OH NOES! The world will end. A candidate for U.S. Senate in KENTUCKY favors the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

Can you imagine? Someone running for statewide office who doesn’t hate the gays. Someone who actually believes everyone should be able to be honest about who they are if they’re willing to die for their country. (Don’t worry, we wouldn’t die for our country. Loved ones, probably. But not our country. Don’t hate.)

Read Cassaro’s release about the ho-mo-sexuals after the jump…

Tuesday Updates. Almost Afternoon Edition.

Anyone having issues with Insight Communications today? If so, we’d love to hear about it. Dealing with Insight’s horrible customer service wasn’t frustrating enough so we want to hear your complaints.

Geoff Davis apologized to Barack Obama for referring to him as “boy” in the most racist slip-up in Kentucky in easily a few weeks. The dude may not have meant it in a racist manner but that doesn’t negate the fact that it was said. Will anyone in the 4th District actually care either way? [PolWatchers]

Brad Cowgill now heads Kentucky’s higher education system and Steve Beshear is NOT happy. Words like “very disappointed” and “bulldozed” were used. [Hebert]

The gubernatorial run-off is dead. Is that exciting? [The Arena]

Apparently it’s the end of the world that we aren’t attacking Trey Grayson. Some people are still hung up on the fact that former candidate (who wouldn’t campaign or raise money) Bruce Hendrickson lost to Grayson in the fall. And some people who are afraid to leave comments with their own name enjoy spreading complete horse crap. Oh, these fancy internets. [TRD]

Faux Rights Group Slanders David Williams

As Ben reports, the faux rights organization Kentucky Equality Federation has killed the last remaining ounce of credibility it allegedly had.

The organization is no longer making up names of board members and claiming a legal counsel who isn’t a member of the Kentucky Bar Association (because she allegedly doesn’t exist). Nor are they attempting to ruin the credibility of the long-standing Kentucky Fairness Alliance as the org has done in the past. Nope. Wait for it.

The “Federation” is now claiming that Senate President David Williams is gay.

Take a look:

Family in the Kentucky Senate?

A blogger claims there is homosexuality (or same-sex acts) in the top ranks of the Kentucky Senate. Click here to read.

This is ridiculous. Even if the man was a known homosexual, why on earth is a self-proclaimed gay rights organization (aka front group for cash) spreading such information? Without any evidence but nasty rhetoric, the group is, of course, attempting to assassinate Senator Williams’ character. He may be a first-rate hack, but this is low.

We call on the Senator to rebuke this horse crap of a nasty allegation immediately. And on the Republican Party of Kentucky to dig their nails into the Kentucky Equality Federation. Anyone who has contributed funds to this organization should request a refund and the Secretary of State should revoke their non-profit status.

Attacks like this should not be tolerated in today’s society.

Wednesday Updates. Clinton Fever Breaks.

C.J. Parrish, in a letter to the C-J, shakes blowhard legislators to their core by shedding light on the reality that it, you know, actually takes a man to create a baby… so men should be held responsible. That sound you hear is the tiny lipstick mafia (nod to the former Bitch Caucus) in Frankfort cheering as people like Jody Richards cower in fear. [C-J]

Speaking of blowhards. If you missed the comment wars on Page One last night, don’t forget to check both of them out today. Hilarious. Absolute hilarity. Did you know we went into Iraq to kill Saddam, not to allegedly go after al Qaeda? That’s the new talking point. [Here, Here]

Someone named April saw Bill Clinton in Paris. Photos, personal freaking out over him. A great read about what it’s like for a non-politico to attend one of our crazy politico functions. [April’s Website]

Who in their right mind believes that Steve Beshear will be able to lure Volkswagen to open a manufacturing plant in Kentucky? Really, who? Or are we just Negative Nancies? [C-J]

Speaking of people who aren’t in their right mind. Is anyone paying attention to this weird phallic building the Webb family wants to bulldoze an entire block in Lexington to erect? Barefoot & Progressive’s Joe Sonka has been leading the fight to wake people up. Check it all out. [H-L, B&P]

Oh Snap! Monday. Updates. Mexicans. Dougie.

Everyone is pissed that the Beshear Misadministration is acting all open and happy and such. But the crew is really more restrictive than Ernie Fletcher or whatever. At least everyone can spend all day every day reading Page One. [Ralph Long]

Are you black or female? Probably not if you’re an elected official in Kentucky. Apparently it takes Barack Obama for our state’s newspapers to realize we’re a little backwater in the Bluegrass. Woops. [H-L]

Bill Clinton in Morehead and such. Dozens and dozens of jokes commence. And no, we probably won’t be able to drive the six hundred hours back home to see him on Tuesday. Basically, eastern Kentucky is going to prematurely you-know-what all over the place because the savior is visiting. It’ll be worse than Jim Gooch at a Shoney’s buffet. Ugh. Unclean. [C-J, PolWatchers]

Lexington hates mexicans, Doug Hawkins (R-Collagen-Lipped Protector of our White Women) should move there. Long story short: some dudes rented to some mexicans and the courts went crazy, ACLU got involved. Moral of the story: renting to mexicans is bad for you if you’re a landlord in Lexington. [H-L]

The centralized pocket of freepers in Louisville still use the tired argument that only Democrats raise taxes and cost us money. (See the letter: “Taxes going up? Democrats must be in charge”) Some concern troll wrote a letter to the Courier-Journal proclaiming that the end is nigh because anyone would have the audacity to raise the cancer stick tax. [C-J]

Florida resident and Kentucky Congressman Ed Whitfield penned an op-ed for the Courier-Journal detailing the important (please, hold your laughter) work he’s done to stop doping in major league sports. Yeah, that’s what the residents of the first district are worried about. [C-J]

TGIF Update Dept. Great Flood Edition.

From mayor of Lexington to substitute teacher: Teresa Isaac whips the kiddies into shape in various Fayette County schools. That’s gotta be more fun than listening to a bunch of old codgers fight over crap 24/7. [H-L]

George Clooney’s new movie – Leatherheads – is premiering at the Washington Opera House in Maysville. (Yeah, we know.) Those expected to be in attendance include Gubnuh Steve & Jane along with Heather French Henry and her husband, disgraced former Lt. Gov. Steve Henry. No mention of whether or not Steve will be paying for his ticket with illegal senate campaign fund dollars or misused non-profit funds. [Maysville Ledger Independent]

Giant idiot Jim Gooch is dicking around with his position in the legislature, queening out over the fact that his stupid corruption doesn’t get a leg-up from every committee under the sun. Apparently the committee system is broken because everyone hates his fat ass. Also, Greg Stumbo is gonna pounce on his big, fat ass like ASAP. He’s all fired up. Ugh. When is the mainstream media gonna tear that idiot to bits? What an embarrassment for Kentuckians everywhere. [PolWatchers]

Gay hating, Barack Obama is black! OMG!, scary internets, and David Williams gets scared of some children after the jump…

Homosexualization of America Continues

Frank Simon cowers in fear! Everyone hide your children! The gays are coming for your first born.

In a 9-6 vote, the House Health and Welfare Committee loudly and clearly rejected Senate Bill 112 (sponsored by insecure Vernie McGaha) – which would have made it illegal for all universities and state agencies to offer domestic partner benefits to employees.

Quite a change from two months ago when the Senate voted 30-5 in favor of the backwater and discriminatory ban, eh?
