Cashing In on the Gullible 9/11-Style

UofL Basketball Coach Rick Pitino – the Famous Democrat and supporter of Bruce Lunsford – is supporting 9udy 11iuliani and attended a major fundraiser for the presidential candidate at Jeff Ruby’s in Louisville yesterday. Definitely leaves one wondering whether or not Rick Pitino knows how to think for himself… and whether or not he realizes 9udy has done nothing but pretend to be the savior from September 11, 2001.

Coach P says 9udy 11iuliani uplifted NYC during a time of tragedy. We have to wonder if Pitino is talking about working with crooked Bernie Kerik? Maybe all the crap Mr. 9/11 never accomplished? Who even knows?

Pitino’s endorsement definitely promotes the 9udy 11iuliani insanity among the believe-it-if-it’s-on-TV crowd. 9/11! 9/11! 9udy saved the world! How embarrassing. Not that anyone takes him seriously when it comes to politics or anything.

This little incident reminds us of this amazing ‘Rudy for the Gays’ commercial:

The Gays Really Are Taking Over

Not only are the gays ruling the world from San Francisco and New York City (and Hollywood) but they’re flooding Kentucky. More than 10,000 couples identified themselves as the gay in Kentucky last year. That’s 12 times more than in 1990. RUN!!!

It’s really part of a national trend toward openness. More and more people feel safer in America and are beginning to let the government know via census data. Now that the heathen libruls have taken over almost 60% of Americans have the audacity to support such immorality. Totally ruining our valuable gay cards during election years.

Don’t worry, though, most of the gays in Kentucky have decided to empty out their closets in rainbow-colored Louisville. The city has experienced 151% increases in homo-satan couples since 2000. The gays have even taken over city government with as many as three holding elected office. The horrors!

If ever you’ve feared a major redecoration or intense scrutiny of your Ugg boots… or maybe your bad comb-over or that ugly double-breasted jacket? Now’s the time to hide. Protect yourself Betty Bowers-style because the end of morality is near! This guy is so taking over.

Allison Patrick: Used Car Saleswoman

Reading conservative blogs pays off. For real.

From Brett Hall:

Allie Patrick, the 22 year-old fiancée of Lieutenant Governor-elect Dan Mongiardo, is running in an online contest for a job selling used automobiles on Lexington TV. In her show audition today, Patrick appeared on Courtesy Pontiac-Acura’s Courtesy on Wheels show on WDKY TV, Lexington’s FOX affiliate. The show features host Dan Glass, along with a female hostess, hawking used cars that roll by in front of viewers. The auto dealership is conducting an online poll for a new show hostess in conjunction with audition appearances by several contestants.

Got that? This is what we have to look forward to. Four years (or until Dan Mongiardo runs for the U.S. Senate in 2010) of Allison Patrick selling using cars on television. Is she an HFH in the making? If Patrick and Mongiardo eventually get married… will she be allowed to remain on the tube? Will she do voice-overs for Insight? Maybe pose with a milk jug or two?

There’s no way this one can stay out of the news for long.

Peep the goods for yourself:

McConnell Calls Himself “Grim Reaper”

Mitch McConnell gave an address to the Federalist Society at its National Lawyers Convention on November 16. It was a typical McConnell speech about interpreting law, not making law… about doing everything to keep the Democratic legislature down and the rest of the country from edging toward progress.

As reported last week by BlueGrassRoots, McConnell generated a spectacular soundbite by referring to himself as the “grim reaper.” Just couldn’t get any better.

Here’s the full audio:


And here’s the clip of Mitch calling himself the grim reaper:


Video soon to come.

The campaign material just writes itself.

Tuesday Propaganda: Dept of the GOP Is Always Hunting Hillary

Don’t waste your time. Former Lt. Gov. Steve Henry and his former Miss America wife, Heather French Henry, will be guests on Kentucky Life “Christmas 2007” on KET December 22. They’ll be giving a tour of the Rosemary Clooney House… we mean the house filled with all of Heather’s crap in Augusta (not Maysville as the KET link suggests). The Henrys, you’ll recall, are embroiled in some serious legal disputes. Not to mention they’ve had some difficulty with the IRS (check with the IRS if you want proof) in maintaining 501(c)3 status for their “museum” because they use it as a residence. Par for the course. P.S. If you’ve ever visited the museum your contact information is now part of a political database. Just an FYI. [KET]

All birds leave the nest at some point. Mark Birdwhistell finally jumps ship as secretary of the Health and Family Services cabinet. According to Birdwhistell he’ll be returning to work at the University of Kentucky Chandler Medical Center as an administrator. He’ll also work to kill the rest of health care by serving as a consultant for Medicaid contractor Amerigroup. [C-J]

Purse much? Mitch McConnell loses his lips over Trent Lott during CNN’s footage of a press conference. Inappropriate, yes, but absolutely hilarious. Check the video at the link. [CNN]

Complete and utter crap. That Zogby poll released two days ago showing Hillary getting trampled by everyone and their mother? It’s complete crap. We won’t say we told you so. [Carpet Bagger]

Ernest Lee had horrible advisers. Steve Pence confirms the problems within the Fletcher misadministration and provides a peek into his own credibility by discussing his reasons for refusing to resign as Lt. Gov. Pence may have done some crazy shiz in 2003 but not caving to Fletcher’s obscure desires proves he’s a man of character. We’re sure his new practice as an attorney will be fruitful. [H-L]

Native American outrage. Ernie Fletcher appointed Bruce Brading as chairman of the Kentucky Native American Heritage Commission (KNAHC) and it turns out he’s quite the shady character. Indictments, fraud, illegal transportation of human remains. Talk about some scandalous hoo-ha. [Rural Democrat]

Good Wishes, Good Food and Such

Perched high in our ivory tower of dirty liberal heathenism we send you warm wishes this Thanksgiving.

We’re thankful for being cancer-free another day.

We’re thankful for mountains of vegetarian food on this particular day.

We’re thankful for dirty political scandals and wish there were more of them.

Oh– and we’re thankful for that time last year when a super-drunk Peppy Martin kept forgetting our name and spilled her Four Roses all over our new Ferragamos that probably cost more than her brightly-colored “dress.”

What are you thankful for?
