This week Governor Steve Beshear spends 2:56 discussing Memorial Day:
The corruption in Lexington is spread far and wide and people are just beginning to wake up to it. Time for Crit Luallen & crew to roll back into town. [H-L]
Seriously, there is some shiz going down in Lexington. Massive cover-up. Mayor about to pee all down his leg. [Linda Blackford]
I think somebody needs to call up Miss Thang Sylvia Lovely and have her testify before the council in Lexington. That would be hot. [Just Saying]
Now that Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell has essentially passed, will the gays flood the military? I think we’re going to take over, re-arrange everything and turn everyone else gay, for fun. [HuffPo]
Mitch McConnell never gets upset when something happens to the little man. Ever. But he sure gets worked up with tax cuts for the rich don’t get extended. [The Hill]
Former President Bill Clinton is going to Nicholasville to talk about his hearing loss. [H-L]
Wouldn’t it help to, you know, include the name of the Saudi Arabian prince visiting the Kentucky Horse Park when you’re doing a television story about him? [WKYT]

The Palin worldview is hilarious. And this graphic is even more hilarious. [Wonkette]
WHAS11’s Joe Arnold linked to a story about Rand Paul and commenters tried to eat him alive for daring point out that someone is questioning the U.S. Senate candidate. Earth to Paulbots: it’s a campaign. Candidates get questioned during campaigns. You don’t get a free pass even if you’re the greatest person on the planet. You need to flipping deal with it. If you and your candidate can’t handle scrutiny now, how are you going to handle the pressure in corrupt Washington, D.C.? [Joe @ WHAS]
The state budget will fund a new $129 million Eastern State mental hospital. [H-L]
I hear from reliable sources that Ben Chandler will be voting for the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

David Boswell is a lying bag of dicks. He told on himself in this story about putting his version of Jesus into the classroom to save some souls. [National Journal]
Letting the gays in the military just makes sense. Not all of us know how to redecorate your shiz. [C-J]

The area around Mammoth Cave is getting a makeover. The land surrounding the park will return to its once natural state. [C-J]
At the last minute this morning, FACES of Coal decided to tell the rest of the world (outside of the few who knew) that Trey Grayson would also be speaking at their Rand Paul rally in Louisville. [Press Release]
Looks like Republicans in Warshington are skeerd for Trey Grayson’s chances to win the election. [Politico]

Check out the fax all members of the State House & State Senate received today. I’ve transcribed it so you won’t be burdened with a large file:
Judges 12:22 20:5
1 Cor. 5.1-5 9:-11
Mark 4:11 6:14
Oh Ye of little Faith means Abomination
To All Members of the General Assembly
Senate and House of Representatives
We need to put a stop to the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell attempt by President Barack Obama. The Bible clearly states in Leviticus chapters 18-20 that Homosexuality is Abomination…… Men are not to have sexual relations with men and women are not to have sexual relations with women…….
I am an Air Force Veteran and we marched day and night for God and Country. In the beginning God and Alpha and Omega. The president event says “May God Bless America”. So how can he suggest such a thing??? We Americans are supposed to be going to Heaven and not to hell…. I am supposed to be waiting on the Second Coming of Jesus Christ and not the devil.
The National Prayer Breakfast is the truth…. The homosexuals may not and cannot have a national Prayer breakfast to pray through Abomination. There is no such thing as praying through Abomination. The Bible clearly states that the penalty is DEATH…. The Uganda Bill is the truth in the matter too…. DEATH!!!
Integrity is the word that is clearly misunderstood and misused…. We are never to disgrace the uniform. Abomination is a true disgrace of the Flag and the Uniform. Who is buried in Grants Tom!!!! I believe in Though Shall Not Kill too.
Homosexuals are lost people. They need to read the Bible and get themselves Baptized just like all Americans do. They may not marry each other etc. The Bible says this is all Abomination. This is all wrong!!!!!!! We are to read and do God’s Holy and Inspired Word. IN the beginning was the Word and in the ending was and is the Word.
Rev. Joel Osteen says “This is my Bible. I am what it says I Am and I have what it says I have. Today I will be taught the incorruptible Word of God. I boldly confess. My mind is alert. My heart is receptive. I will never be the same in Jesus Name”. How can Bishop T.D. Jakes preach at the Presidential Inauguration and they do not
believe in homosexuality, I have checked, and how can President Barack Obama say something like this in public? The Joint Chief of Staff should be written. How can Gen. Colin Powell agree to such bad behavior?? Washington and the Military are to be run as President and Mrs. Barack Obama Man and wife… Jesus Church the Bride. The Parables are about the Second Coming of Christ. Please write to Washington, D.C. for me and I will write for you and we must put a stop to this wrong in Government. This would probably freak out our troops etc. We are to be the number one Superpower in the world…. Rev. Rick Warren says we are to Pray for Our Purpose In Life.
God bless you,
You get that?
This Doug Jones guy sent faxes to our state legislature calling for the deaths of thousands of Kentuckians.
UPDATE: Jones faxed his letter from Crestwood Baptist Church in Frankfort.
