  •  Bite me (10+ / 0-)

    Bronte provided me with a polite, informative clarification of Mr. Conway's stance, without attacking me for asking the damn question.

    In case you've missed it, you've been attacking a supporter here.  I've donated a total of $100 in the past month.  May not seem like much to you, but not only do I have a monthly income of only $600, I am currently getting no salary while I fight a workman's comp denial after being injured seriously on the job.

    And another thing - I've given my time.  Time that is in short supply.  I've reached out to friends in KY and asked for their votes.  I've recced every single diary posted by Mr. Conway and the quilt crew the second they were posted, and I've shared the diaries on my FB page.  What have you done?

    So whatever.  Just keep using these tactics and making friends wherever you go.  Or not.

    •  I'd say asking for Mr. Conway's stance regarding (7+ / 0-)

      Bush's tax cut is more than legitimate, especially when most of us see absolutely no reason why it needs to be extended for the rich instead of only for those in the middle class who are struggling financially.

      What concerns me the most is that while Mr Conway's supporters are eager to tackle this question from different people either by stepping in to answer it directly or simply asking people to shut up about it, Mr Conway's campaign itself simply refuses to answer the question here even as they're asking for our financial support.  

      If we can't count on him to take the time to answer a legitimate question that is literally dividing the community here while he needs our help now, what's the chance that he'll answer to his constituents once he's been elected?

    •  Okay, Miss Blue, maybe I was a little unfair to (7+ / 0-)

      you and I can see, given the background you shared, why you would ask to be bitten by me.  Part of the problem is that I wrongly attributed the phrase "the not so artful dodge" to you, when, in fact, it was jonze who fired that salvo. You actually phrased your question pretty noncombatively and I probably should have responded jonze or skritchard inter alia. My opinion on this issue is that it's not a big deal if he doesn't want to be more definitive. His platform as a whole has been refreshingly progressive for a state like Kentucky and there's no question in my mind that he'd be anything but an asset in the Senate.
