Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Wed Nov 6, 2019, 09:45 AM

 

Stacy Abrams and Andrew Gillum ran as progressives. Andy Beshear ran as a moderate.

Kentucky is much more conservative than either Florida or Georgia.

Keep these fact in mind when deciding who to support for the presidential nomination.

6. It had nothing to do with progressive vs moderate

 

In Georgia, it was all about a racist fucking cracker Attorney General manipulating the vote because he was in a position to steal the election.

In Florida, where medicare fraud crook and environment destroyer Red Tide Rick became senator, they rig the voting machines, like the one I had that flipped the vote to republican, to steal the election.

28. It was sanctioned voter fraud in Georgia!

 

"In Georgia, it was all about a racist fucking cracker Attorney General manipulating the vote because he was in a position to steal the election."

Amazing, isn't it, that the Attorney General, who just happens to be running for Governor, allows thousands of voters to be swept from the right to vote. Oh, did I mention that a large majority of those voters were people who were from areas that had generally voted against the Attorney General's party?

And yet someone will complain that the Dems had failed in some way to win the position?

The failure is in allowing the theft of an office to take place (see: Presidential election - 2000; Presidential election - 2016).

But letís go with the tried and true same old same old that got us here and doesnít work because ... weíll lose, I.e., we think we canít, we think we canít, we think we canít.

Undoubtedly other forms of cheating occurred, too, in both races.

22. Shouldn't spread the words of that right winger.

 

Bernie Sanders campaigned in Kentucky Sunday. Where was Andy Beshear?

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin stood side-by-side with President Donald Trump Wednesday as he descended from Air Force One and later got a shout-out in the presidentís speech. At U.S. Sen. Bernie Sandersí rally in Louisville Sunday, Attorney General Andy Beshear was nowhere to be found.

It is one of the sharpest contrasts in the campaign for governor. As Bevin has clung to the national Republican Party in attempts to boost his popularity ahead of Novemberís election, Beshear has distanced himself from national Democrats.

Sanders did not mention the Kentucky gubernatorial campaign ó one of just three statewide elections this year ó during his presidential campaign rally Sunday, turning his fire instead to U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who isnít on the ballot until 2020.

Even worse, Bernie didn't even tell the crowd in Louisville to go vote and get rid of Bevin! Bernie acted like there wasn't even an election in KY.
