Yeah, But They Still Have Kim Davis

Republicans are throwing in the towel in the Governor’s race in Kentucky, even with all that free advertising from Kim Davis, Ted Cruz, and Mike Huckabee.

The Republican Governor’s Association has stopped running TV ads for Matt Bevin with a little more than a month to go in Kentucky’s competitive governor’s race.

The association has spent $3 million on six ads for Bevin, mostly attacking his Democratic opponent, Jack Conway, for supporting the policies of Democratic President Barack Obama. But with two other governor’s races this fall RGA spokesman Jon Thompson said the group is “re-evaluating what is best for us to do.”

After spending a million dollars of his own money to win a 4-way primary, I bet his wife and kids are hacked off.  “Oh no, we can’t go to Europe this summer because Dad played Republican Roulette and lost.”

Last year, Democrat Jack Conway, who is currently the Attorney General of Kentucky, refuse to appeal the federal judge’s decision on gay marriage.

By appealing, he said, he would be defending discrimination “and that I will not do.”

Conway said he had prayed on the decision and felt he is doing what is right. He said that he was sworn to defend both the constitutions of Kentucky and the United States.


People thought he had pretty much written off his political career by doing that, but apparently people are sick to death of Kim Davis and her buttload of hate.  Even in Kentucky.

So let’s take up a collection and and send Kim, Mike, and Ted on a countrywide tour.


Don’t Cry For Me, Bobby Jindal

I predicted that Bobby Jindal would be the next Republican to face the  devastating fact that they can’t get elected President.

What I didn’t predict was this horror.  (Warning: What you are about to read contains disturbing facts and information.)

Willie Robertson, star of the A&E reality show “Duck Dynasty,” has thrown his support behind real estate mogul and reality television star Donald Trump, reversing his earlier endorsement of fellow GOP presidential hopeful Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.).

I know.  Shocking. What’s Jindal supposed to do with all his camo attire now?

So far, he’s in denial.  His campaign posted this on Facebook.

Nope.  Not happening.

“I do like me some Trump, I’ve got to admit,” Robertson said on Friday at the Oklahoma State Fair, where Trump held a campaign event.

When that’s the biggest endorsement you’ve got, can total wreckage be far behind?

Thanks to Sharon for the heads up.

My local newspaper, the Fort Bend Herald, is the least amount of stuff you can buy for $.75.

The entire masthead is white men, always has been and always will be.  You kinda know you’re in small town, Texas, when one of the choices on a front page poll about Planned Parenthood is “You betcha!”

Today’s editorial takes on an issue that I know you have been concerned about and is certainly something that needs the attention of the 1,000 small town people who read this newspaper.

They lament that Donald Trump is being treated unfairly by the press.  It’s not anything the press says.  It’s not even the fact that it’s 24/7 Donald Trump on all the news channels.  It’s unfair to show pictures of him. Undamnfair.

Screen Shot 2015-09-28 at 3.59.43 PMThe media outlets are providing a very particular lense through which to view the story. If the read- er sees a photo of Trump making a goofy face, they’re more likely to go into the story with a negative pre- conception of the story’s content.

And it isn’t run-of-the-mill news outlets that are guilty of this. Reuters and CNN have each published stories in the past week display- ing almost circus-like photos of Trump.

This is no different than Trump commenting on Carly Fiorina’s face …

Man, that’s heavy.  On my list of Things You Need to Have a Strong Opinion About, this ranks about … well, it doesn’t rank at all.  Let me tell you why:  here’s what I want you to do.  Go find me a picture on Google of Donald Trump that is not goofy.

Good damn luck.

Meanwhile, are we real sure that making everything Pumpkin Spice is a good idea?

Fun With Guns: But What If They Hadn’t Been Drunk? Edition

Okay, way to go Georgia!

At 3:00 am on Sunday morning, a fight broke out at a sports bar in Meriwether County.

Sheriff Chuck Smith got a report of trouble and found this …

According to Smith, there was gambling around a pool table that led to an argument.

Smith told Channel 2’s Berndt Petersen multiple people pulled pistols and began shooting injuring 11.

The sheriff’s department have no suspects in custody.

Think about that for a minute.  They are standing around a pool table and because it is, after all, Georgia, everybody has a gun. Eleven people were shot but no one was killed. That’s some kind of Southern Boy record. I hope their families are depending on deer season to eat.

When I first learned to hunt, my grandpa would tease me and say that I couldn’t hit the side of a barn … even if I shot from inside the barn. But hell, even I could shoot across a pool table.

Thanks to Ralph for the heads up.

Do you want to know when America will be great again?  When an announcement of water on Mars preempts Donald Trump on the news channels.

CNN, Fox, and MSNBC are all covering the Donald Trump news conference.  Only the BBC is covering NASA live.

They are saying that there may be life on Mars, but obviously not on cable network news.
