I have to admit, I am a semi-reformed political junkie.  In a former life I was a political consultant and ad-man for some very powerful players in the Democratic party, at least the Democratic party of the state and surrounding region where I live.  Ten years ago I changed professions, I teach now, and entered a twelve step program to free my life of politics.  Thanks to the support of my loving wife I have been politically sober for over 6 years now.

KY-03 Northrup Calls it Quits

by colvinatch

Rejoice, Kentucky Republican Anne Northrup was just seen on Kentucky Educational Television conceeding the race to Yarmuth.  Her 10 year reign of conservative terror is over.  She ran a filthy race and still couldn't win, this is a bellweather race and could mean that the wave has begun here in Ky.  My only regret is that McConnell is not running  this year.

This is my first diary entry, and it will be brief, I was listening to the radio in the car this evening, an came on claiming that soldiers had found "hundreds of shells filled with mustard gas and nerve agents, proof that WMD's were in Iraq" this ad went further and demanded an apology from "liberals who claim that all those soldiers died for nothing... but we probally won't get one."  It was paid for by people for democracy or something to that effect, frankly I was in such a state of shock that I didn't catch the whole ending.

Is this happening across the nation?  

Has the right wing (notice I didn't say Republicans, but someone is using this group as their proxy) become so desperate that the will air outright boldfaced lies to attempt to rally their base?

Is Anne Northrup in any way connected with this group and if not will she speak out agianst the use of public airwaves to spread flat out lies regarding our involvment in Iraq?
