One thing Walter has the exclusive on, for certain, is being the KDP’s chief cheerleader. Yesterday he started touting how amazing Todd Hollenbach is and how awesome he is for being transparent. He also touted Hollenbach’s lack of press releases, which, really isn’t a good thing at all. [BGR]
We hear through the grapevine that Greg Fischer will be in Frankfort today with Bruce Lunsford. Looks like he’s finally getting involved in Bruce’s campaign to oust Mitch McConnell. This is a good move on Fischer’s part and should send a strong signal to progressives across the Commonwealth that it’s time to step up to the plate. [Various Gossip]
Which is worse for a congresscritter? To be corrupt or a known homosexual? Obviously, being gay trumps all else. You should go read this story all about Mitch McConnell, Ted Stevens and Larry Craig. Interesting way to spend a few minutes this morning, we assure you. [Bloomberg]
Anne Northup’s right-hand man Ted Jackson has a fancy “Nobama” campaign going from his Frankfort Avenue headquarters. It’s so retarded that the McCain campaign refuses to comment. But the RNC is all over it and in love. Hey, Teddy boy, bring us some of your gear for free (one of everything) and we won’t think you’re a racist. [C-J]
What? Now Steve Beshear is touting mountaintop removal because it creates flat land in mountainous eastern Kentucky? [Barefoot & Progressive]
By now everyone knows the federal investigation of Bill Nighbert and Leonard Lawson is in full swing. But if you didn’t, the latest news is that Governor Steve Beshear met with the FBI to answer questions relating to the investigation. Beshear says he has no evidence that the investigation is broader than Nighbert and Lawson. [Mark Hebert, PolWatchers]
Mitch McConnell tries his hardest in his latest ad to make fun of Bruce Lunsford. The only thing he’s got, though, is to make fun of Lunsford’s ad. Fortunately for Bruce Lunsford, Mitch has more than 24 years of a dirty record to make fun of.
PolWatchers has the low-down on the ad.
