tomorrow. Gov's race looks like a savage beating. Last tracking poll just in. Democrats RIP, after 32 years of good socialist rule here.

I wasn't in this one directly (wrong Dumocrat faction), but the last few days I've pitched in to help bail the sinking ship. Alas and alack, too little, too late.

Steam, Doug ... I surrender. You guys are the wave of the future, and a obviously a thousand year ... uh, BENIGN REIGN .. is upon us. Let me know what I can do to help. We're all PATRIOTS after all, eh?

Where do your guys/gals GET those jackboots, by the way? I need me a nice, shiny pair ...

Of course, you'll have to pay for it, but perhaps your daughter's new in-laws might spring for the treat. You are well-deserving.

The future is the Middle.... man.

Maybe your (other faction's) guy is a Moderate Republican kinda feller?? They're not all Evil Neo-con artists.

So where does this, Fletcher is it, stand on the spectrum as you see it? On a scale of Evil to Good (as that is how we talk about people and politics under Mr. President's Old Testament rule. -:O)

Just did my part regarding casino gambling and slot-machines at harness-raceing tracks....

the American Conservative Union (is that the name of that right wing outfit? Whatever it is.) in his Congressional voting record.

I doubt he's a neo-con. Like Bush, he's not smart enough to be a neo-con. But, if the neo-cons ever develop some strategy for colonizing existing states as part of their New World Order, I'm sure they'd dupe him easily enough into goosestepping right along.

Man, these N!zi references just roll off the tongue so easily on this Dark Day. But evil, nah. Even Dick Cheney isn't Evil. Ann Coulter IS, but that's another story.

I'm off to vote again. Vote early and vote often, we Kentucky Dumocrats say ...

A great day for Kentucky from a KentuckianPaulCL

Sorry, OldEd, but as a Kentucky Republican, its nice to see the change. A client of mine who is a politician told me the good news about the polls a week ago. Paul Patton is, was, a sleezeball IMHO. A Bill Clinton clone. Maybe the old fashioned 'good ole boy' politics in Frankfort will be shown the door.

I'm no big fan of Ernie Fletcher, but change is good. I'm curious if the Gov's race success (or failure from your point of view) will bleed over into the other races. We'll see. In all fairness, this morning I did vote for two republicans and one local democrat.

Look at the bright side: now you can complain about state politics along with federal politics. Rush Limbaugh has made millions complaining about the other side.....
Aw, come on--Fletcher's just a moe-ronCory

Well, to be fair, I didn't start paying attention to him until a couple of weeks ago. But jeee-ZUZ, as Grandpa used to say. He's the kind of candidate that makes you shake your head and wonder what happened to the educational system and the free press.
interesting then on how...PaulCL

...the man made it through medical school. He must have some brains upstairs. Only time will tell. Besides, the option to Fletcher was no option at all.

I think the wave of the future will be fiscal conservative/social liberal (uh, sorta like Libertarian, eh?). Spend less and let people do what the heck they want with their own lives.

Whichever of the main parties figures that out best and first will probably prevail.

Of course, that's just my opinion. I could be wrong.

Fact is, Bill has the 'Southern boy' definition of sex. Which is screwing. Period. When I was growing up, it wasn't considered 'having sex' unless there was intercourse. We were often shamefaced about it. 'Naw, man, I never had no sex with her. I tried and I tried, but she shut me down. It's EMBARRASSING man. I spend all that money on dinner. All I got was a blow job. But no sex' No kidding, and this isn't a political thing: When Clinton split that hair, I understood INSTANTLY. No intercourse, no sex. I was truly shocked to discover that most people (apparenly) consider a BJ to be sexual relations. To me it's just ... heavy petting or something.

...I don't buy this meek submission for a minute. Give him a few months, a few years, to lull the neo-con lackeys into accepting his good ol' boy sycophancy, and then watch that bourbon-fueled sh1tstorm erupt when their guard's down. Yessuh!

Ed, you'd be more than welcome to come out to Sacramento for a trial run...
