Proof McConnell Fudging Some Military Facts

This is all you need to know:

Several correspondences later we decided to request the information we needed from the National Archives Southeast Region in Atlanta and they sent us Mitch McConnell’s complete Selective Service Classification Records and when we looked under column 7 Armed Forces Physical Examination it was blank, indicating that Mitch McConnell did not receive a Armed Forces Physical Examination as stated by Richard Flahavan, in his extract. If the Selective Service Classification Record is correct and Mitch McConnell didn’t receive Armed Forces Physical Examination, then how could he flunk the Armed Forces Physical Examination he didn’t take and what is the real reason Mitch McConnell didn’t serve his country during the Vietnam war?

Senator Mitch McConnell has an obligation to clear this up and I’m suggesting he publish his military discharge papers for all of us to see and until that time we have good reason to believe he has something to hide.

Ouch.

What’s Mitch got to hide about his military service? We’ll never know.

Some day the chickenhawks will come home to roost.

Rand Paul’s early lead is a sign of Republican Party division. Scott Jennings is smoking crack if he thinks Mitch McConnell is hugely popular in Kentucky, though. And Rand Paul is brain dead if he thinks attaching Trey Grayson to Bill Clinton is a bad thing in Kentucky. Because Bill Clinton is hugely popular in the Bluegrass. [Jack Brammer & Ryan Alessi]

A pipe plant is moving to E-town. I should win many awards for avoiding obvious jokes. [WHAS11]

Sounds like something that would happen in Kentucky. A Senator nominating his secret girlfriend/mistress to be U.S. Attorney. But it didn’t. Thanks to Max Baucus, it happened in Montana. [Roll Call]

David Adams, who has morphed into a cyborg of ignorance lately, should take note. Even the Washington Post says (re: the climate change emails he has a you-know-what over), “They don’t provide proof that human-caused climate change is a lie or a swindle.” So maybe it’s time for David to stop spreading his horse dung around as 100% solid on behalf of a U.S. Senate candidate.

Len Peters says it was solely his decision (because of performance – PROVE IT!) to fire Ron Mills from the Kentucky Energy and Environment Cabinet as mine permits director. Multiple sources in Governor Steve Beshear’s office still insist otherwise when I ask. They all say his firing occurred because Alliance Resource Partners wanted him fired. And they also say that the Gas Station Governor asked for him to be fired. Yet another reason Beshear is a one-term governor. Yet another reason nearly all of his staff have jumped ship. [Tom Loftus]

Ah, whattya know. Turns out it WAS Greg Fischer’s campaign that some how transferred an anonymous email address I maintain to Kimberly Greenwell. And to Daniel Mongiardo’s campaign. Yes, I’m pointing fingers, and I don’t like being lied to. [Pointing Fingers]

In other news, Crit Luallen or Jane Beshear need to move to Louisville ASAP so they can run for mayor in 2010. [Pipe Dream]

Mitch McConnell is suddenly a military expert. Guess he has forgotten that he is a first-rate chickenhawk and should probably always avoid anything having to do with the military. Primarily because of his own scandalous past involving the Floyd Family. [Politico]

Lt. Dan’s worst nightmare: the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies is hosting a panel on mountaintop removal today at 5:00 P.M. (too bad we all live in Kentucky) The panel, moderated by Roger Cohn, editor-in-chief of Yale Environment 360, will examine how mountaintop removal has destroyed or severely damaged more than a million acres of forest and buried 2,000 miles of streams in Appalachia.
