Vichy GOP Irritates Dan Riehl. Unwise.

I honestly had considered using my little platform here to try and encourage friends and fans to give you a pass, while shifting more time and money over to taking out Landrieu in LA. Thanks to your […]

Alice In Chains Salute To Sen. McConnell

by Smitty The ritual, symbolic sacrifices of Tea Partiers to Cthulhu will continue for months, of course.

Kentucky Atheist Teacher @ChrisRenfrow Wants to Repeal Statutory Rape Laws?

The statutory age of consent in Kentucky is 16, the same as in Florida, where accused sex offender Kaitlyn Hunt is in jail awaiting trial for her lesbian affair with a 14-year-old girl.

Primary Politics: Can the Grassroots Defeat the GOP Establishment in 2014?

Interesting developments: Matt Bevin is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky GOP primary.

Gee, I wonder why? The question of connections between Progress Kentucky […]

‘Democrat Ethics’

You seldom see those two words in the same sentence, except when a Democrat is convicted of ethics violations or — as occasionally happens — pleads guilty to felonies. The Democratic Party is the most successful criminal organization in American history, and the amazing thing is that they haven’t yet stolen everything that’s not nailed down. […]
