I just realized that one month from today, the May primary election will be over. Are you ready (or do you really care) to make a decision about an incumbent office holder or whether or not it’s time to make a change in who is representing you in Washington and Frankfort?
New York Times Op-Ed Columnist Gail Collins writes on April 24th that:
“the election season is starting in earnest, and already one thing is crystal clear. Both the Democrats and Republicans are hopeless. It seems inconceivable that either party can possibly win anything. This may be the year when the Whigs finally get to make their comeback.”
She goes on to write about the Kentucky U.S. Senate race and says
“It is very hard to pick a favorite. Would you prefer the man endorsed by Mitch McConnell (unofficially) and Dick Cheney, or the one backed by Sarah Palin and Jim Bunning? Of course, she’s talking about Trey Grayson and Rand Paul. She also gives the nation a brief line or two about the other candidates in the Republican primary, including 86-year-old Gurley Martin, who is quoted on cap-and-trade legislation as saying “Horsefeathers! Horsefeathers! Horsefeathers!”
