Some Central Kentucky Teabagger Senate Fun

Guess who held a funtimes straw poll or something.

Yep, everybody’s favorite Central Kentucky Teabaggers.

Here you go:

Subject: First Poll
From: Central KY Tea Party Patriots

Hope lots of you are going to Fancy Farm Saturday. I plan to have
tear-sheets listing the website of 28 page document showing Mitch being one
of the biggest sellouts in DC. He didn’t get his multi millions by just
being a senator.

In the Kentucky Republican Primary for US Senator, who will you vote for?
Matt Bevin 57%
Mitch McConnell 40%
Other 1%
Total Votes: 658

If the Kentucky General Election for US Senate were held today, would you
vote for . . .
Matt Bevin (R) 57%
Mitch McConnell (R) 41%
Alison Lundergan Grimes (D) 0%
Other 1%
Total Votes: 654

You can be certain they don’t dislike Mitch McConnell because he’s an obstructionist who never does anything. It’s because he’s not extreme right enough.

Pee Alert: Teabaggers Worked Up Into A Froth

Breaking news! The tealiban (translation: the two people in Kentucky who hype up people like this in order to personally profit) is freaking out over Matt Bevin, going out of their way to play down the racism of the organization that endorsed him:

As we made quite clear yesterday, the author’s race doesn’t change the racist, disgusting content.

Funny, though, that the guy who lost to David Williams (of all people to lose to – a guy who got his ass handed to him by Steve Beshear) and a guy with a rap sheet a mile long with his own history of race-baiting are defending this hogwash. Right.

Carry on, teatoots. You’re digging your own hole again. Carry on.

Was Bevin Endorsed By Super-Racist Organization?

Really, Matt Bevin?

We’re supposed to believe the Madison Project is a big deal?

Take a look at this. It’s called “Emancipation & The Master Class” and was published on February 15, 2013.


Some of the racist/white supremacist highlights:

“The Republican Party is not black America’s team.”


“Don’t sit down with the black elite while wearing the Republican uniform.”


“Put it this way: my great-grandfather (and yours) would be astounded that there is an entire class of black people who get rich by calling other black people N*****.”


“Obama could have given his campaign speeches standing in front of a burning cross while wearing a Klan hood and he still would have outpolled Romney in black precincts.”

We’ve been waiting on other mainstream media outlets to run with this story but they’ve been sitting on their hands. So here you go, folks.

Matt Bevin has the gall to promote an endorsement from an organization standing behind such trash.


P.S. No, the author’s race has no bearing on whether or not the content is racist.
