Looks about reasonable. Have the nukes been flying or are people starting to come home to the GOP?

Haven't heard much at all about this race in the past week or so.

What's really interesting is that Democrat Conway leads the entire GOP field for governor. But this isn't a slam dunk, because you can count on the right-wing media machine to kick into high gear.

McConnell's wife, former labor secretary Elaine Chao, is drawing heat for sitting on the board of an anti-coal nonprofit headed by Michael Bloomberg and on the board of Wells Fargo, which divested itself of coal-related investments.

After Wells Fargo kept making harassing phone calls to me while trying to collect a debt from someone I don't even know, my opinion of Elaine Chao just sank even lower (if that was at all possible).

Is there any evidence that John Walsh's life hasn't been exemplary except for the plagiarism accusation?

Daily Kos is my leading news source.

I wouldn't vote for a blind guy who illegally drove around for like 10 years.

But he didn't drive around for 10 years. He didn't drive around at all except when he had a license.
31  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: How large will Kasich's victory be? on: August 06, 2014, 11:03:44 am
If we was still driving, breaking the law and putting others in danger, I could definitely see why folks would be concerned.

It turns out he did have a very limited license at the time - just not a full license.

If FitzGerald had active epilepsy and was barred from driving due to seizures, would the right-wing media make a "scandal" of that too?

What if he was legally blind?
33  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: How large will Kasich's victory be? on: August 06, 2014, 10:42:20 am
So the big "scandal" is that FitzGerald didn't have a driver's license for 4 years of his adult life? How is this a "scandal"? If you don't drive, why get a license?

The right-wing media makes me sick.
34  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: John Walsh, plagiarist? on: August 06, 2014, 10:16:36 am
Yeah, Bandit's just being a super-hack as always.  He's basically the left-wing krazen.  He has Andy Barr's district as lean D and Thomas Massie's as lean R.

So you don't think Massie will be re-elected?
35  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2014 Senatorial Election Polls / Re: KY-Wenzel Strategies (R): McConnell+4 on: August 06, 2014, 12:23:18 am
Was this poll taken before or after McConnell gave that humiliating performance at Fancy Farm?
36  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: John Walsh, plagiarist? on: August 05, 2014, 11:54:48 pm
It also would set up a nice contrast against Rand Paul. Not that his plagiarism was as bad as this but still

Rand Paul's plagiarism wasn't as bad as this. It was WORSE!

Urban areas, the Northeast, and the West are going in the right direction.

Rural areas, the South, and the Midwest are going in the wrong direction.
38  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Study: 'Sovereign citizens' now more threatening to US than Islamic extremists on: August 04, 2014, 09:43:42 pm
As far back as I can remember, right-wing domestic terrorists have always been a much greater threat than international terrorists.
39  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: 2015 KY-Governor/Gravis Marketing: Conway (D) up by 9 on: August 03, 2014, 11:16:30 pm
Now the question is if Former Gov. Ernie Fletcher and/or Former Ambassador Catherine Bailey will also enter and further complicate the republican situation. Conway may very well end up unopposed in his primary, although Former Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo is mulling a run, and there is talk of Sec. of State Allison Grimes running if she loses to Sen. McConnell later this year.

Conway would beat Mongiardo in the primary.

But if Grimes narrowly loses the Senate election and doesn't make a fool of herself in the process, and if McConnell continues to make a fool of himself after winning, there will be such buyers' remorse that Grimes could instantly become the frontrunner for governor. If that happens, Conway might just quit the race and support Grimes.

I highly doubt that.  Even the propaganda libertarians post about how great 1950's education was shows middle school tests as just pure regurgitation of many civics concepts.   If 16 page papers were all the rage in middle school in the 1980's, I think the right would be screaming about that.  Also, no offense, but if what you said were true, Northern Kentucky students would be going to prestigious colleges in droves, which is not the case.

Not so sure you quite understand northern Kentucky schooling.
41  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Ron Wyden 2016 - would you vote for him? on: August 03, 2014, 06:36:41 pm
He is a liberal

No. He is not.
42  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Congressional Elections / Re: KY Senate Race 2014: Getting lucky in Kentucky on: August 03, 2014, 03:27:49 pm
Some have already said that Fancy Farm has sunk McConnell for good.
43  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Who was the best of recent failed Democratic presidential nominees? on: August 03, 2014, 10:15:16 am
I'm partial to Dukakis, but they all would have been better than the Republican who beat them. I even like McGovern despite his lack of union support.
44  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Ron Wyden 2016 - would you vote for him? on: August 03, 2014, 10:10:38 am
Wyden spends most of his time complaining about people having easy access to Sudafed.
45  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / Gubernatorial/Statewide Elections / Re: Will the Republican Consolidation in the South Continue? on: August 03, 2014, 10:06:10 am
Alabama: House and Senate
Arkansas: House and Senate
Kentucky: House and Senate
Oklahoma: House and Senate
Tennessee: House and Senate
Texas: Senate
West Virginia: House and Senate

Most of the others will probably stay the same or change marginally. From my looks, it seems NC, FL, MO, and even GA are maxed out for republicans.

The GOP has maxed out in Kentucky.

The only part of the state that isn't getting more Democratic is Appalachia. Not only is that region losing population, but most of its Kentucky House seats are either already Republican, or there's no Republican running.

The area between Lexington and Frankfort is growing rapidly and is quickly trending Democratic. The river cities in northern Kentucky are growing again and are trending Democratic too.

Now we know Gravis is a joke.
47  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: GOP just handed the Democrats the house im November on: July 31, 2014, 11:38:27 am
Not quite as unrealistic as I'd expected from you, but still unrealistic.

In my scenario, only one seat flips - and it's in Lexington.
48  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: GOP just handed the Democrats the house im November on: July 31, 2014, 10:33:50 am
Bandit, I'm curious.  If you were to give ratings for all of KY's congressional districts(Guthrie, Massie, Barr, Rogers, etc.), for 2014, what would your ratings be [as in, tossup, tilt R/D, lean R/D, etc.)

I'd put it about like so...

KY-1 - Lean R
KY-2 - Lean R
KY-3 - Solid D
KY 4 - Lean R (but it will become solid R if the Democrat doesn't start campaigning or move left)
KY 5 - Solid R
KY 6 - Lean D
49  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: GOP just handed the Democrats the house im November on: July 31, 2014, 10:12:09 am
Massie is the congressman for my district. I guess he figured he's in enough electoral trouble that he didn't want to dig himself in deeper. On the other hand, his opponent hasn't done a shred of campaigning.
50  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: GOP just handed the Democrats the house im November on: July 30, 2014, 10:22:53 pm
I'm not optimistic enough to believe that this automatically costs the GOP the House - but then again, it doesn't help them either. At all.
