Gov. Matt Bevin requested a recanvass; Republicans in the legislature began plotting to overturn the results of KY's governor election. Democrat Beshear leads 49.2 to 48.8, a margin of 5,189 votes. In typical Trumpian fashion, Bevin claimes that the election was marred by 'voting irregularities,' but his campaign has 'not replied to multiple requests asking for any of those examples.' The goal is to sow confusion: if state Senate President Stivers has his way, throw the election to the GOP-dominated legislature. Speaking to reporters Wednesday, Stivers cited Section 90 of the state constitution, specifying that '[c]ontested elections' for governor 'shall be determined by both Houses of the General Assembly'—and hasn't been used since 1899.

Bevin: 'Kentucky voters... Which side are you on? Do you support socialism or do you still believe that America is the greatest nation on Earth?'

"Which side are you on? Do you support socialism or do you still believe that America is the greatest nation on Earth?'"

WTF question is that? It has nothing to do with the election process, plus makes no sense as two answers are required and neither response deals with the election. Maybe those voting against Brevin would answer, "Yes,", "It will be now"

In all fairness, that was a campaign quip, not a comment after losing. It is still a meaningless stupid ploy, one that might have worked in the minds of a majority of Kentckians, but didn't at all.


What this all portends for Mitch McConnell: that is what is important. I was told today he had 400 bills on his desk which he is completely obstructing!

One thing is for sure: if the Rethugs can pull it off they will. Not because it is the right thing or the election was too close to call, but just because they can.

Yes, the old "socialism versus freedom" canard is something we'll be hearing very much more of this election cycle.
