The end is extremely effing nigh and no hope remains. The final day for Ernest Lee’s campaign is sure to be filled with reality crashing down around him. But don’t get too excited, Democrats, you got lucky this year by having a horrible opponent. Learn something from it. [C-J]
Nowhere near reality. Turns out Stan Lee’s tirade about 287(g) saving the world from Mexicans barely pays for training and nothing else. Training doesn’t do much to curb illegal immigration when there’s no money to actually do something about it. [H-L]
Resurgence. The Washington Post says Democrats are resurging in Kentucky. Buncha problems with the story, though, because Louisville is not Northern Kentucky and Crit Luallen and Ben Chandler are not the only potential McConnell challengers in 2008. We’re also not certain who those “prominent Democrats” are who “opted out” of the gubernatorial primary. Who? Jerry Abramson? Brereton Jones? Please. [WaPo]
Catching up. The Herald-Leader and Courier-Journal play catch-up with with us on the Ernest Lee & Pat Boone gay-hater party. Oh, how scary Kentucky would be if the gays were everywhere. Maybe mullets and mom jeans would finally go out of style. The horrors! [PolWatchers, C-J]
Faux breaking news. Just this weekend WHAS11 claimed credit for the story about bigoted Pat Boone’s robo call in support of Ernest Lee Fletcher. Yet another story we broke which WHAS claims as its own. We’d link to their story but there’s no way to navigate their terrible website. Imagine that. The station that allows right-wing racists to post their video but not us has claimed credit for our story. Thanks to three WHAS11 reporters for pointing this out.
