Wednesday Updates. Clinton Fever Breaks.

C.J. Parrish, in a letter to the C-J, shakes blowhard legislators to their core by shedding light on the reality that it, you know, actually takes a man to create a baby… so men should be held responsible. That sound you hear is the tiny lipstick mafia (nod to the former Bitch Caucus) in Frankfort cheering as people like Jody Richards cower in fear. [C-J]

Speaking of blowhards. If you missed the comment wars on Page One last night, don’t forget to check both of them out today. Hilarious. Absolute hilarity. Did you know we went into Iraq to kill Saddam, not to allegedly go after al Qaeda? That’s the new talking point. [Here, Here]

Someone named April saw Bill Clinton in Paris. Photos, personal freaking out over him. A great read about what it’s like for a non-politico to attend one of our crazy politico functions. [April’s Website]

Who in their right mind believes that Steve Beshear will be able to lure Volkswagen to open a manufacturing plant in Kentucky? Really, who? Or are we just Negative Nancies? [C-J]

Speaking of people who aren’t in their right mind. Is anyone paying attention to this weird phallic building the Webb family wants to bulldoze an entire block in Lexington to erect? Barefoot & Progressive’s Joe Sonka has been leading the fight to wake people up. Check it all out. [H-L, B&P]

Clinton Update – Finally Something Funny

From PolWatchers re: Bill Clinton’s appearance in Paris:

Former Miss America Heather French Henry spoke as the crowd waited for Clinton, describing herself as a “Clinton fan.” She praised Hillary Clinton for helping with her Heather French Henry Foundation for Veterans.

During his speech, Clinton thanked “Heather French Smith” for her support.


Two things:

  1. I’d like to see the proof that Hillary has ever helped Heather’s faux 501(c)3.
  2. Heather. French. Smith. Hilarious. Why is the Clinton Camp allowing her to troll for them? Risky.

Clinton Rally Kills Disclosure Bill

Everyone in Frankfort is rallying for Hillary Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton. And by everyone we mean everyone. Especially lawmakers.

From John Cheves at PolWatchers:

Lawmakers skip hearing, disclosure bill stalls

A Senate bill that would require greater disclosure from groups promoting or opposing constitutional amendments may have died Tuesday because not enough House members attended a necessary committee hearing.

The sponsor of Senate Bill 148, Sen. Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown, waited in the audience for about 20 minutes into the scheduled 8:30 a.m. hearing of the House Committee on Elections, Constitutional Amendments and Intergovernmental Affairs. But most of the panel’s 12 members failed to arrive, and Kentucky State Police officers could not quickly locate them in the Capitol Annex.

Chairman Darryl Owens, D-Louisville, then canceled the meeting, the last planned for the 2008 session. While it’s possible a special meeting could be called later, Thayer’s bill is important and complicated enough to need serious study, more than a special meeting might be able to offer, Owens said.

Good luck getting any news that’s not about Hillary today.

Obama Campaign Steals Lunsford Idea

What’s that? Oh, yes, Barack Obama has copied the Lunsford-Stumbo Blueprint for Change. Hahahaha.

For real.

How hilarious is this? After all of the controversy the plan caused (courtesy of paid hack Mark Nickolas) during last year’s gubernatorial primary, a presidential campaign has taken the ‘Blueprint for Change’ idea and run with it.

Here’s the original:

Could someone please read both of these and tell us what’s going on? We can’t stop laughing.

Super Decider With Kentucky Ties

Former Lunsford-Stumbo Director of Operations (and friend of Page One) Ed Espinoza was on CNN’s Election Center last night discussing the role of Democratic superdelegates.

He gave crazy former San Francisco mayor Willie Brown the what for. Crazy Willie wasn’t down with following the will of American voters. So Ed nearly choked him.

It was kind of awesome.  (Wasn’t near the TiVo, only had the camera on my phone handy.)
