Election Fraud Hotline Results Are Not Exciting

November 9th, 2011 · Comments Off

No excitement on yesterday’s election fraud hotline. “I appreciate all of the voters who served as our eyes and ears on the ground yesterday to report any voting irregularities,” General Conway said. “Be assured, each complaint will be thoroughly reviewed and the appropriate enforcement action will be taken for any that appear to be criminal [...]

Flashback to 2007: Democrats Did The Same Thing

October 19th, 2011 · Comments Off

Remember when the Republican Party of Kentucky filed a complaint with the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance (like this) begging them to take Bluegrass Freedom Fund ads off the air because they weren’t revealing their donors (remember Bill Yung and his $1 million contribution?)??? Remember that? They were alleging collusion because donors of the group [...]

We Told You The Feds Were Coming To The KRS

October 11th, 2011 · Comments Off

Yes, we treated yesterday as a holiday that was established in honor of a genocidal maniac as an actual holiday. Why do you ask? We got all kinds of work done. Many (read: most) of Steve Beshear’s 2007 campaign pledges remain undone. He didn’t balance the budget as he loves to bullshit, didn’t pass gambling, [...]

Papaw Beshear’s Boots Were Made For Walkin

October 5th, 2011 · Comments Off

Four years and a few days ago we took a look at the zillions of checks then-Governor Ernie Fletcher had doled out around the state in an attempt to garner votes: Thought it’d be a good idea to take a look at all the crap Steve Beshear’s done in an attempt to get votes, primarily [...]

Steve Beshear In 2007 Versus Himself In 2011

October 5th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Woah. Watch this video of Steve Beshear debating Ernie Fletcher in Paducah from 2007: Isn’t it nearly mind-blowing to hear Beshear say all of those things about ethics and corruption? Only to know that he’s single-handedly done everything he accused Ernie of doing? Political firings, illegal campaign contributions, questionable special interest funding, wasting state tax [...]

My, How Time Flies For Papaw’s Empty Promises

September 27th, 2011 · 2 Comments

Here’s what Steve Beshear promised four years ago: What was that, again, about politicians only doing what’s best for them? Unfortunately, David Williams is incapable of taking political advice and direction and he continues to make misstep after misstep. His top campaign brass have departed and only his longtime friends remain. We like David a [...]

2007 Flashback: Papaw Said He Was Gonna Pass It

June 10th, 2011 · Comments Off

Four years ago Steve Beshear said he wouldn’t have to answer questions about what would happen if casino gambling didn’t pass. Why? Because he said he was going to pass it. See for yourself in this old Ernest Lee video: You know what didn’t happen? He didn’t pass it three times over. He refused for [...]

“Explosive” Turned Out To Be A Mere Crop Duster

April 12th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Sweat monster Daniel Logsdon held a press conference today to offer this “explosive” information (that’s already been in the mainstream for a week?): At a press conference held at Kentucky Democratic Party (KDP) headquarters, KDP Chairman Dan Logsdon today called on Moffett and Williams to open up their personal financial information. Kentuckians have a vested [...]

On Talking Out Of Both Sides Of The Mouth

March 18th, 2011 · 1 Comment

Here’s what Steve Behsear’s campaign manager had to say in an email blast yesterday: Unfortunately, Senator Williams hasn’t stopped his false, misleading attacks on Kentucky’s schoolchildren, teachers and law enforcement. Instead, he has doubled down on his misleading rhetoric and cheap political stunts to court extremists prior to the Republican primary. Bill Hyers What was [...]

Thank Goodness For Tennessee & Utah This Week

January 14th, 2011 · 5 Comments

No, lobbyists should NOT be allowed to serve on the Kentucky Board of Elections. Primarily because public servants can’t be lobbyists. It is unethical and highly damning for the governor. [Tony McVeigh] Just because it’s legal? Doesn’t mean it’s right. You should read this and take it to heart. [Ralph Long] You should consider serving [...]
