  •  P'Pool tries to bring back Aqua Buddha (1+ / 0-)

    in the Kentucky AG race. He is getting desparate. And I have still managed to hold off on a P'Pool joke, but I don't guarantee that I will if he keeps this up.

    David Williams and his father in law may have a motive to want P'Pool as the AG. I don't see how there is not an investigation of the Restoring America fiasco. Now his father in law is trying to say the money may have been to go to Ohio, but does anyone buy that?

    •  Kentucky will be a bloodbath (0+ / 0-)

      But there are a finite number of national politicians that could put it in play presidentially. And none of the ones that could would be met with anything but vitriolic hate at Kos.

      •  I don't think there's really "vitriolic hate" for (5+ / 0-)

        conservative Democrats as long as he/she is representative of their constituency. Lieberman deserves all the "hate" he gets though.

        Other than that I could see Gov Schweitzer put KY in play as he's pretty good with the populist messaging that should work in KY

          And Liebermann is a tool.

          But there is a lot of malice to go around for people like Evan Bayh, Joe Manchin, Blanche Lincoln, Collin Peterson, Gene Taylor, Ben Nelson, Mary Landrieu, Earl Ray Tomblin, and Dan Boren. All of them represent(ed) Conservative to VERY conservative areas. Not exactly Connecticut....

          •  Sure there's annoyance, but not "vitriolic hate" (0+ / 0-)

            Most of those people have been unnecessarily douchey at times, esp. Bayh. Someone like Landrieu, who is fairly conservative but doesn't necessarily have to go on the attack against her own party to do so seems to be accepted in these parts.

            •  I think that also (0+ / 0-)

              the norms around here are different for Senators and Representatives.  A Senator opposed to a party priority can usually make a lot more trouble for it, and force more changes, than a Representative.

          •  Its one thing to be socially conservative ... (0+ / 0-)

            ... in a socially conservative district. Its another to be a megacorporate tool. Blanche Lincoln and Mary Landrieu are excellent examples of pushing anti-middle class agendas under the excuse that at least some attacks on the middle class is required to be a "moderate" when the Republicans have staked out a position of exterminating the middle class.
