Al Cross loves talking about Bruce Lunsford and absolutely loves coming up with little analogies for his political ambitions. “If Lunsford makes it through the primary, the extravagantly funded McConnell will make a piñata out of him and his record. But Lunsford is probably the only Democrat with the money and party support to make a piñata out of McConnell.” But Cross fails to recognize Bruce isn’t capable of using his money to eat McConnell up without giving McConnell the chance to rake in more than $30 million overnight.

Larry Dale Keeling says Steve Beshear screwed up in the 30th Senate District race and “That “non-endorsement” endorsement Beshear gave Bruce Lunsford in the Senate primary was also a mistake. Lunsford’s wealth makes him the instant favorite in the race. All Beshear’s statement did was needlessly alienate supporters of other D candidates.” Woopsie daisy. [H-L]
Rep. John Yarmuth gave MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough an Article 1 button that he wore while interviewing spineless Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. No word on whether or not she was terrified of the button or if she hit her head on any desks. And Cathy Bailey is back from Latvia. What’s next on her plate? RPK power? [C-J]
Pat Crowley comes unhinged over a bridge in northern Kentucky and sticks it to Kentucky’s pitiful legislature, “State legislators and business leaders are way too complicit in this tired poor-mouthing. A stand needs to be made; no, Mr. President, senators and congressmen – do your jobs, meet your responsibilities and don’t hand off the most expensive infrastructure project in our region’s history to the locals.” [Enquirer]
Mitch McConnell sneakily used University of Louisville faculty to feign endorsements and no one is happy about it. Better yet, UofL faculty were stupid enough to say in a public record e-mail that they want make their little political nightmare disappear. Do none of our state institutions have quality public relations staff? [C-J]
And just for kicks. We know Mondays are awful. Why not enjoy your morning?
