Wednesday Morning Dept Of Git Yer Guns!!!

You know what’s awesome? There’s a gun show coming up in Louisville and Rand Paul will be there. But… the company putting the event on? Is running advertising promoting Rand Paul. No disclaimer. No language about who paid for the spot. Rand & crew will apparently never take campaign finance seriously. [Lacking Common Sense]

Rand Paul is now blaming the DNC for the controversy surrounding his comments that he said. HE chose to appear on television all those times. HE chose to write those letters to the editor. HE chose to continue “explaining” things. [Joe Arnold]

Wait for it – the Kentucky Equality Federation is once again trying to revise history. Jordan Palmer’s mother accused me of slander while impersonating another individual. See it for yourself and take a trip down memory lane. In the meantime, I believe you should support other fairness groups. [We Get Comments]

The teabaggers are all over YouTube re-tagging videos with non-whites as ‘vote rand paul.’ As is pointed out, that’s kind of desperate. [That Mommy Lady]

How does Steve Beshear feel about potentially running against Richie Farmer? Please, like he’s going to admit he fears Reeeeeechie’s popularity. [Ryan Alessi]

Since Mitch McConnell is so tight with AT&T, maybe he should do something about the poor service provided in Kentucky by the company. [C-J]

Roger Alford, the Associated Press stenographer, says Rand Paul is distancing himself from the Libertarian Party. Reality is, however, that the Libertarian Party in Kentucky publicly distanced itself from Paul a couple weeks ago. What is it with the AP these days? First, inaccurate stories about the Steve Henry scandal and now misleading headlines and stories about the U.S. Senate race. [HuffPo]

Former Metro Corrections employees are suing Louisville Metro Government. Mayor Jerry Abramson’s crew are directly involved. And before Jerry’s staff tries to dismiss everything? The plaintiff’s attorney is Andrew Horne, a guy doesn’t say or do anything he’s not 100% behind and extremely confident in. [Bennett Haeberle]

Will Rand Paul defend this soldier from oppressive federal “gun grabbers”? [Barefoot & Progressive]

Massey Energy and Don Blankenship are on the war path, trashing the MSHA in letters to governors. What is it with folks who never take responsibility and always want to blame the government for everything? [H-L]

Can You Believe It's Only Going To Get Hotter?

If you missed it earlier today: Rand Paul’s got some strange ties to big oil. And his comments about Barack Obama are ringing hollow this afternoon. [Page One]

Yup, it’s true. Jack Conway and Rand Paul are neck and neck in the latest polling data. [Daily Kos]

Glad to see Talking Points Memo has latched on to Rand Paul’s fake ophthalmology organization. [TPM]

Here’s my original story which raised all of those same questions. [Page One Flashback]

Steve Beshear and crew have no one but Larry Clark to thank for screwing up this bourbon mess. They should stop negotiating with terrorists. [Ryan Alessi]

HAHAHA. Dear Courier-Journal: Please keep it up with these hilarious Rand Paul cartoons. [C-J]

Haha, wait for it. Rand Paul is but a politician straining to be born. Just like in the above linked cartoon. [National Review]

If it takes 10,000 words to suggest Jack Conway isn’t credible? You may be grasping at straws. [Marcus Carey]

Could Kentucky Right to Life work against Rand Paul? Yup. [That Mommy Lady]

Kent Ostrander and the faux Family Foundation are still fighting against the bourbon industry and sent out YET ANOTHER email blast today. [Email Blast]

Ron Paul is out fundraising for his son, Rand, defending him every chance he gets. And Washington, D.C. is terrified of him. [MSNBC]

The Public Service Commission today fined South Kentucky RECC $9,250 for safety violations that lead to an accident injuring two contractors. [Press Release]

Senate & Congressional Race Shenanigan Funtimes

John Yarmuth’s Republican opponent addressed me directly. He says the military doesn’t discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. Really. And he doesn’t like being a called a bigot. Maybe he’ll think twice about his tight association with Frank Simon if he’s not keen on that label. [The ‘Ville Voice]

Rand Paul says that if everyone were Christian? We wouldn’t need laws. [LGFB]

The IFC Media Project is kind of a big deal and has Kentucky ties. Season 3 begins tonight at 8:00. [C-J]

That GOP Mommy lady is not having any of the tea the Louisville teabaggers are spewing. [Ruh Ro]

Saint Dr. Rand Paul says the gold Amero is coming! Run for the hills! [Mother Jones]

Earth to Al Cross: Jack Conway didn’t make the U.S. Senate race about Rand Paul. Rand Paul made the U.S. Senate race about Rand Paul. [C-J]

Today at 2:30 First Lady Jane Beshear did a radio with racist Lou Dobbs about the World Equestrian Games. More than disappointing.  [Press Release]

Governor Steve Beshear says Rand Paul’s philosophy is radical. So maybe his wife shouldn’t appear on the radio with a guy who lost his job for hating Mexicans. [Ryan Alessi]

Why won’t Ben Chandler’s opponent, Andy Barr, say whether or not he agrees with Rand Paul’s statements about the Civil Rights Act and the Americans With Disabilities Act? Seems to me that it’s an easy answer: “I support both the ADA and CRA.” Why can’t Republicans admit whether or not they support discrimination on the basis of race and disability? If the Republican Party of Kentucky takes bettering this state seriously, it’d be wise of staff to clean this mess up right away. [Barefoot & Progressive]

On top of all that, check out this audio of Rand Paul saying he agrees that American today is like Hitler’s Germany. [More B&P]

The special session is under way. How long will it take Frankfort to fall apart? [Bluegrass Politics]

Louisville is the 5th-most sluggish city in the country. Behind Detroit, even! [MSN]

Martin Cothran Bigoted AND Anti-Semitic

Don’t you love it when Marty Cockring gets homophobic AND Anti-Semitic in the same breath?

Check out his latest rant that’s reminiscent of Nazis and Hitler:

Jake at Page One Kentucky is once again marching at the head of the goose-stepping Tolerance Police, and his group of Brown Shorts is now heading for the campaign office of Renee True whose crime seems to be that she supports traditional marriage.

-SNIP-

Folks, this is what we’re in for from the gay rights extremists like Jake: if you believe in marriage as it has traditionally been defined, then you should be disqualified from holding public office.

Now it’s interesting that there is nothing in the amendment that says anything about whether gays can hold office or do whatever they want. Yet Jake himself is for preventing anyone with a traditional view of marriage from public office.

Heil Jake!

Obviously, no one is shocked. It’s just a matter of time til each and every obese gay-hater gets caught Larry Craiging some hot po-leece menz in the Walmart restroom.

Just goes to show you what these bigots do in Kentucky. They not only spew homophobic rhetoric 24/7 and personally attack, they spew Anti-Semitic rhetoric at the same time. It’s a constant cycle for them to complain about everything that’s a little queer and they always use their Jesus and morality to do it.

To think this is the guy the anti-gambling David Williams of the world use as their spokesperson and chief hack.

Now he’ll be complaining that I’m crying discrimination. It’s a cutesy game of Christianity and morality or whatever for Marty.

(What he doesn’t realize is that I’m far worse than Hitler– I want to abort all children forever and force women to be actual second-class citizens. Fat people will be put out to pasture and/or indentured servitude.)

Sometimes We Get Awesome Socialism Email

Like this message:

Name: Benny B.

Subject: socialism

Message: I can’t believe 40% of Americans want socialism. It seems that if you offer some Americans something free they will sell out there own mother’s. We are becoming just like europe….50% taxes. Americans better wake up before it’s to late.

Just like roads, the fire department, police, Medicare, public water companies, the very internets the guy used to send the message.

SCARY SOCIALISM!

Reminds me of a line an uncle by marriage fed me a week ago… Medicare isn’t socialism because people (him) need it.

Saint Dr Rand Paul Just Cold Hates Seatbelts

And he told the New York Times to suck it, cause seatbelts infringe upon freedom!

But in light of your distrust of the federal government, where are you on an issue like seat belts? Federal legislation requiring people to wear seat belts could obviously save lives.

I think the federal government shouldn’t be involved. I don’t want to live in a nanny state where people are telling me where I can go and what I can do.

You shouldn’t trivialize issues of health and safety by calling them nanny issues.

The question is, do you want to live in a nanny state where the government tells you what you can eat, where you can smoke, where you can live, what you can do, or would you rather have some freedom, and freedom means that things aren’t perfect?

Nanny state! Can’t have no dang nanny state seatbeltin going on. But it’s cool for the nanny state to legislate what ladies can do with their ladyparts.
