Days Away: Are You Happy?!

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

Unless you just landed from another planet, you know we’re only days away from November 6th — Election Day 2012.

I realize that some of you don’t really care. You think this whole process has gone on too long, you don’t care who wins or loses because it won’t make any difference in how Washington operates, you’re sick and tired of campaign attack ads, and your list goes on.

I’m not in that camp. I think it’s been a fascinating election season — an opportunity to learn more about how Congress works, an education in such arcane realities as the “fiscal cliff” and how Medicare works—I realize this paints me as a complete wonk and a lost cause for anything sane and settled, but I’ll be sorry to see election day come and go.

There are a few days left. We at KET, Kentucky Tonight, and One to One will do our best to keep you entertained and informed right up to the last minute.

On One to One this Sunday, KET political analyst, Louisville lawyer, Courier-Journal columnist, and author, John David Dyche will be on the set to talk politics. Next week’s guest, writer, professor, and commentator,  Al Cross will weigh in on the election.
On Kentucky Tonight, Monday, I’ll have candidates from the 6th Congressional District at the table for the final candidate forum of the season.

Next week, I’ll tell you what we have in store for our pre-election show on Nov. 5th and plans for KET/PBS election coverage on Nov. 6th.

When John David stepped away from the table after we had taped our program this week, I asked him to share with you three things viewers and fellow wonks could look for between now and Election Day. Here’s what he said.

One to One airs Sunday at 1/noon CT and Tuesday at 7:30/6:30 pm CT on KET2.

    What an appalling job as mediator. I fully expected you to kiss Chandler at the end. The job of a mediator is moderate and not argue the Chandler view with Barr because Chandler does not have that capability. I know both candidates well you simply never asked Chandler a hard question but pounded Barr. New name Candy 2
