Message from Kentucky: Strong candidates matter

A loss is still a loss, but I think context does matter.

"President Trump tried. And he warned Kentuckians at a huge rally a few days ago that the gubernatorial race was going to be viewed by all as a referendum on him.

So the apparent loss of Republican Gov. Matt Bevin to Democrat Andy Beshear last night, is a stinger. A Trump endorsement is usually a surefire means of winning the election and it has been up until now for nearly all candidates in special elections, which is why so many candidates want them. Once Trump endorses, Republicans almost always win.

But apparently, not even a Trump endorsement was enough for Bevin, who had some popularity problems. The punditocracy of course is calling curtains for Trump. The Washington Post is calling it "embarrassing." But there's plenty of reason to be dubious.

Bevin seems to have lost for three reasons:

One as the Washington Post notes, he only got into office four years ago by a thin 85,000-vote margin. So he was on thin ice all through his term and didn't work to increase his support."

Soros Dumped Nearly $1 Million Against Republican DA. She Won Anyway, And Trolled Him During Victory

"Sandra Doorley, the incumbent Monroe County, New York district attorney running as a Republican, crushed her George Soros-backed challenger Shani Curry Mitchell on Tuesday night.

Soros, a Hungarian billionaire and the foremost Democratic megadonor, dumped more than $800,000 against Doorley via one of his political action committees (PACs), starting in early October.

... Still, Doorley pulled out a big win over Mitchell, so much, in fact, that USA Today reporter Jon Campbell deemed the Soros money-dump a complete backfire.

“The $800K of Soros-funded ads appear to have backfired in the Monroe County DA race,” Campbell wrote via Twitter on Tuesday night. “Incumbent Sandra Doorley, a Republican, is cruising with more than half of precincts reporting … and I mean REALLY backfired. Compare the early DA results to the Monroe County exec race, where the Democrat (Adam Bello) has a very slim lead.”

Biden Forgets Obama Lost North Carolina in 2012

It seems creepy Joe just can't get anything right.

"Former vice president Joe Biden falsely claimed Sunday that he and Barack Obama won the state of North Carolina in 2012.

During a Biden campaign event in Durham, Spectrum News reporter Tim Boyum asked Biden how the state fits into his campaign strategy.

"Big time," Biden said on Sunday. "Because the fact is I think we can win North Carolina. Barack and I won it. Barack won it twice in a row."

Sen. Mitt Romney (R., Mich.) won North Carolina’s electoral and popular vote in the 2012 election. Obama won the state in 2008."

Who said this? I'll give you a hint ... AOC.

“There’s three chambers of congre…er…government. The Senate, the House, and the one with the president. I’m gonna stop now, otherwise I run the risk of looking like I don’t know what I’m talking about.”

Who the hell wrote this? Details of AOCs Green New Deal are something else

OMG, you MUST read the details. This woman is off her fucking rocker.

In case you ever needed a reminder.

No vote buying from Democrats ... ever.

Hillary Clinton Tweets Debunked Hit Job On Brett Kavanaugh

"Hillary Clinton


I want to be sure we're all clear about something that Brett Kavanaugh said in his confirmation hearings last week. He referred to birth-control pills as "abortion-inducing drugs." That set off a lot of alarm bells for me, and it should for you, too.
9:14 AM - Sep 12, 2018"

There's only one problem - it was a lie.

"The claim that Kavanaugh called birth control “abortion-inducing” has been deemed not accurate by multiple fact-checking organizations, including PolitiFact. (RELATED: Fact Check: Did Kavanaugh Suggest That Contraceptives Are Abortion-Inducing Drugs?)

“ was citing the definition of the religious group Priests for Life” when he referred to contraceptives as “abortion-inducing,” PolitiFact explained. “He has not expressed his personal view.”

The claim originated from an edited video clip used by California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris. Harris’ clip showed Kavanaugh stating, “Filling out the form would make complicit in the provision of the abortion-inducing drugs that they were — as a religious matter, objected to.”

Kavanaugh’s full statement, however, was, “They said filling out the form would make them complicit in the provision of the abortion-inducing drugs that they were, as a religious matter, objecting to.”

Sen. Harris’ clip seemed to intentionally leave out the “they said,” which made clear that Kavanaugh was characterizing someone else’s argument rather than his own."
