That’s effectively plagiarism and the station has [...]

Alison Says She Has A Map But Clearly Doesn’t

November 8th, 2013 · 1 Comment

Did you pee a little bit when Alison Grimes pretended she’s a regular gun shooter? Because we did. And most of us are gigantic gays who shoot guns way more often than anyone reading this.

Mitch McConnell’s Wife Learned A Lot From Him

September 7th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Fox News contributor Elaine Chao has recently appeared on Fox Business to criticize Obama over the economy and push the falsehood that he stripped the work requirement from welfare.

June 27th, 2011 · 7 Comments

Look, I really like KC Crosbie and think she’d be a solid treasurer – way better than Little Todd. I just think she’s got an inability to you-know-what in the pot.

Two Kentuckians have been named Fall 2010 White House interns: Julie Crocker of Franklin (attending Centre College) and Brian Highsmith of Louisville (attending Furman University). Their internships run September 7 through December 17. [Press Release] Maybe it’s me, but I think it’s hilarious watching Trey Grayson pretend to support Rand Paul. [Ronnie Ellis] Looks like [...]

Jim Newberry Declared State’s Biggest Disaster

June 17th, 2010 · 6 Comments

Is this what some Republicans think of Kentucky’s U.S. Senate race? [That Mommy Lady] A carpetbagger counterpoint on health care? Yes, please. [MCL] Alert! Jennifer Moore said “Democratic Party” instead of “Democrat Party.” [Beth Musgrave] Todd Hollenbach is lying about being unaware of the office politics leading to the firing of Mary John Celletti. I [...]

This Is Too Mitch Rich For A Round-Up

June 16th, 2010 · 6 Comments

You know how Mitch McConnell pretends to be a man of the people? Yeah, about that. Check it. $25 million money market account? Check. $5 million home with rental property? Check. $50,000 in interest? Check. $193,400 salary? Check. That’s why Republicans refer to Mitch as “Daddy.” Because he’s loaded with sugar from hims Chinese government [...]

Oh Snap Monday! Puppies & Rainbows Edition

March 30th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Have you taken a look at the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance lately? Look at the final reports for Kelly Flood, Susan Westrom, Larry Clark and Bob Damron. They obviously had money left over in their accounts but they were zeroed out. What’s up with that? It’s like there’s no campaign account post-election. Has all [...]
