We’ll be sporadic for a few hours. Everyone decided to schedule every appointment on earth today.
Fischer gets an embarrassing mention in The Hill, as the publication names Lunsford the pick of national Democrats. Or maybe it’s not embarrassing because being the ‘pick’ is a little embarrassing. [The Hill]
Looks like 400 attended the Obama opening in Lexington last evening. And the RNC’s Mike Duncan was kind of in the mix. Not bad for central Kentucky. [PolWatchers]
Scott Alexander, while apparently a loving father, really is a giant tool when it comes to being a state representative. He went to Costa Rica for a week DURING THE SESSION after being told not to by Jody Richards and Rocky Adkins. Imagine that. [H-L]
Really, who is king of Frankfort? Harry Moberly? David Williams? They have both been known to embarrass us as Kentuckians. And lately, the craziest one seems to be more bi-partisan and honest than the calm and collected guy. So who is it? [C-J]
Proof the Kentucky Democratic Party is turning Republican-lite? Dunno. But definitely not because Thom Karmik, the KDP’s new spokesperson, once worked for a Republican and criticized Dick Durbin for being worthless. The KDP has sorely needed new blood who could be critical of their own party for decades. Anyone who disagrees has never stepped foot in Frankfort. [Brett Hall]
Teacher layoffs on the horizon? Yay, Steve Beshear! The education governor! [PolWatchers]
