    Of many Kentuckians than you might think.

    I live here in KY, too. The GOP's tying Obama to Ben Chandler is ultimately how he lost his House seat in 2012.

    Obama is kryptonite in this state.

    I'm a "right-wing freak show," or at least that's what one nobody on DKOS seems to think.

    •  Has KY given it's electoral votes to a Dem (0+ / 0-)

      in any recent presidential election?

      KY is for all intents and purposes, the "deep south".

        when Bill Clilnton carried Kentucky.

        Also, I agree that the "random dude" is more representative of Kentuckians than one might think. In fact, this person who does not connect the dots between a state ACA exchange and "Obamacare;" probably represents a lot of low information voters nationwide.

        They don't like Obamacare because they don't like Obama. They will gobble up resonably priced health insurance under the state's or federal exchanges without knowing or figuring out it is the same thing that the RWNJs are railing against.

        The word "parent" is supposed to be a VERB, people...
