    WERE conservative Democrats.

    And yet they couldn't muster more than 41% in the last 4 presidential elections.  Even Gore ran away from his more liberal side when he ran and he didn't campaign at all in KY or TN for that matter and he IS from TN.  He only became a real progressive well after he lost.  Kerry was the most liberal of the 4 and he had to explain why he was for the war before being against it.  

    If conservative Democrats could win in Kentucky the delegation to DC would have more than one Democrat.  It seems that running someone who is slightly better than a steaming pile of shit and telling the people of KY that they may be like that steaming pile of shit but taste a bit better isn't cutting it in KY.  Maybe people in KY WANT someone who is a bit different, with different ideas and different plans than the GOP crap and the bland not quite GOP crap they're fed on a continual basis.

    The only way we will ever know is to try and it seems many both here and in KY want to continue feeding the people of KY the same type of shit they're used to.

    The bottom line is we were not going to win this seat anyway.  McChinless has huge coffers and as the head of the party in the Senate will have all the guns blazing in support of him.  The answer isn't to run some bland alternative of him who will simply be cannon fodder.  The answer is to go for broke.  

    Judd is young, charismatic, can help self fund, has wealthy backers and is from Kentucky.  She can excite the younger crowds, women and minorities (granted there probably aren't many in KY).  She can change the voting demographics in the state and carry other Democrats to victory as well.  Alot of the criticism of her is pure bullshit.  Not a state resident?  When the fuck has McChinless lived in Kentucky?  How long has he been in DC again?  Oh she posed nekkid for some films.  Well she looked fucking smoking hot doing it too.  Can you say the same for Centerfold Scotty or Ahhnold?  Can you picture Mitch nekkid?  Would you want to?  She's against coal.  Well she's got an alternate vision for the state than the shit they've been fed for over a century.  Maybe the people would like to hear it.    

    And if she gets trounced by McChinless and the Dems lose state wide?  Big fucking deal.  They've been doing a bang up job of losing without her.

      Alright, we simply have a different definition of conservative.

        We just need people to campaign.  When was the last time a presidential nominee on the Democratic Party campaigned in KY after the primaries?
