Yes, I believe that Kentuck is in serious danger of becoming a whirlwind of fabulosity like San Francisco. Just look at the house prices! You can hardly get a garage for your car for a million bucks in Kentuck, right?
I'm guessing that Kentuckians are thinking "do we want to be goobers all our life, like this guy, or do we want to be part of the world?" And they're voting D.
Pat Boone is still alive? Or is this a post-Halloween corpse reanimation?
New Jersey has the most awesome constitutional amendment on its ballot. This one would restore voting rights to 'idiots and insane persons.'
Just in time for the Republican presidential primaries! They've got to get out the vote somehow.
Let's hope NJ voters do the smart thing and reject that santorum sandwich.
Fletcher avoided prosecution for illegal state hiring practices by the skin of his teeth, and had to survive a vicious primary to even show up for the beating he's probably going to take tonight.
It would be neat if this was a backlash against a culture of stupid, but it probably isn't.
"San Francisco treats"... tricks... there's a funny joke in there somewhere.
So much for Fletcher losing with grace.
Pat fucking Boone? Was the guy who drove a stage-coach on two episodes of Dr. Quinn; Medicine Woman busy?
i've been all over kentucky, and met the gays in lexington, louisville, and covington/newport.
kentucky ain't never going to be san francisco.
kentucky wishes it could be san francisco.
Wow, it's hard to know how to take a homophobic insult from Pat Boone, of all people. It's not like the guy is the poster child for butch masculine straightness, if you know what I mean. He's sort of his generation's Michael Jackson.
I can't wait to see the closing numbers for this race. I want to see how much of an effect this tomfoolery has on the Kentucky voters.
With 25% of precinct reporting, it's 64-36 for Beshear.Current results from the Louisville Courier-Journal.
More up-to-date and official from the Kentucky State Board of Elections. As I write, it's 46.9% of precincts, and Beshear has 59.7% of the vote.Half of Kentucky's 120 counties haven't yet started reporting. The western 1/3 of the state is in the Central Time Zone, so their polls are open an hour after the Eastern ones (with most of the state's population) close.I note also that in the 15 minutes or so that I've been looking at the official results, about seven percent of precincts have reported. There's something to be said in favor of poll-voting, though I don't have information on KY's use of DRE versus opscan.
so....america is on the verge of fighting a never-ending war with various middle eastern countries, the housing market is trashed, gas prices are going to stay high for decades....and us gays are your biggest problem huh...ummmm....YOU are going to fight the wars...not me...YOU are the ones with no disposable income...not me....ok.....lets face it the gays are not your worst enemy you are
Resolution to impeach the VP are now in the Judicial Committee. This is the furthest ANY impeachment action has made it in the House of Reps in dealing with the Bush Administration. And for you Constitutional Junkies out there, Articles of Impeachment have to come out of the Juducial Committee.
WRITE TO JOHN CONYERS!!!!! TELL HIM TO PURSUE THIS!!!!!
The old GOP standby of resorting to gay bashing when they have no other issue to stand on doesn't seem to be working any more. If homophobia can't win voters even in as red a state as Kentucky then maybe that's a good sign that this country isn't as fucked up as I thought it was.
Yep, looks like Kentuckians didn't buy it. HOOWEE
