Kentucky Political News: McConnell, Bevin, Beshear, and Matt Jones.

Not sure what got into the Courier-Journal’s coffee, but they had a lot of political news today.

FRANKFORT — Boosted by big bundles of Wall Street contributions, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's reelection committee took in more than $3 million…

Kentucky and Abortion: The Latest Insanity.

Governor Matt Bevin and the Republican legislature have nothing else better to do than pass more restrictive abortion laws in the hopes that they make it to the SCOTUS and Roe v. Wade is overturned.  How is that going so far? Once again, Kentucky Republican politicians acted like doctors and banned a procedure called dilation…

Oh Governor Matt Bevin! You Never Hit Rock Bottom!

Trump mini-me Governor Matt Bevin of Kentucky never misses a chance to keep going lower  Thankfully, this also applies to his approval rating.  But first, Bevin’s latest attack on public school teachers: More attention must be spent on looking at behavioral health and firearms safety as opposed to the government creating more gun regulations, Bevin…

Victory for Kentucky Public Teachers, at Least for Now.

The Louisville Courier-Journal is reporting that two anti-public school teacher bills that were advancing in the state legislature are dead:  Legislation that drove hundreds of teachers to shutdown Kentucky's two largest school districts — and motivated Jefferson County teachers to continue calling out sick — will not reach the governor's desk this session.House Bills 525…

McConnell Needs To Send a Thank You Note To Matt Bevin.

If I was McConnell, I would be sending a big “Thank You!” note to Governor Matt Bevin.  Like other Daily Kossacks, I want to see McConnell under a microscope for all his political evil and rank corruption, but guess what the focus has been in the local media?  Yes, Matt “Mr. Freeze” Bevin and his…

Odds and Ends on McConnell and Bevin.

Kentucky has the dubious honor to have elected some of the most evil and stupid people possible to government positions — Mitch McConnell, Rand Paul, Thomas Massie, and Matt Bevin.  Given Trump’s government shutdown defeat, I was watching a lot of TV — MSNBC — and scanning local and state media for the latest on our rogues gallery…

From the Louisville Courier-Journal: Marse Bevin — according to WFPL — went to the Kentucky Registered Apprenticeship Summit on Monday and extolled the virtues of indentured servitude as being something akin to an early form of an apprenticeship. My history teacher in high school didn’t spend a lot of time going over indentured servitude, but I got…

Missed This Poll About Republican Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin.

It’s difficult to get any polling data about Kentucky political races because…Well, I really do not know why.  Probably because we are a poorer state with fewer people?  Shrugs.  But it seems that Morning Consult poll out in July found that Bevin’s approval rating had plummeted to just 29%.  According to this poll, 57% disapprove…
