An interview with Marshall County Judge Mike Miller
Marshall County Judge Mike Miller on jail funding: "we keep getting promises".
An interview with Marshall County Judge Mike Miller
I had a chance to interview Miller on Friday evening at the Marshall County Bean Soup Supper. Here's what he said about federal stimulus dollars and where they went:
"We were assuming that the stimulus funds were going to be used for what they call “shovel ready projects”. We have pipe on the ground. We’re ready to start laying water lines.  Then all of a sudden, we are using that money to balance the state budget. Now, you’re putting a patch on that thing. You’re not going to solve problems by using stimulus money to balance the budget.

Best speech of the day – Rand Paul
Whatever his political fate, Paul can congratulate himself on the best speech at Fancy Farm 2009. He told the crowd that both parties were guilty of hypocrisy, pointing out moral lapses by elected Republicans and tax avoidance issues of Democrats. Paul promised to introduce legislation to force every lawmaker to read bills before voting on them. At one point, he held the massive stimulus bill over his head to illustrate the point that no one read the bill before passing it.

Dr. Dan Mongiardo - not the best, but not bad
Lt. Governor Dan Mongiardo went home from Fancy Farm weekend with some positives. He didn’t give the best speech at Fancy Farm, but he didn’t give the worst, either.
His supporters came in green med gear to cheer him on.

Regarding Jack Conway and passion at the picnic
Role model? AG Conway owes St. Jerome's an apology.
Regarding Jack Conway and passion at the picnic
It has been reported in other blogs and newspapers that Jack Conway’s quote of Wendell Ford’s SOB comment was offensive to some in attendance. Various news organizations, including a particularly gleeful account in the Paducah Sun, reported that locals were not happy that mouth-washing-out language was used in front of the St. Jerome Parish’s new priest and their beloved bishop emeritus.  
While not shocked at four letter words or in this case a five letter word, (I would sell my television if I were), the venue was inappropriate. Conway owes an apology to the people of St. Jerome Parish.

Trey Grayson - partisan GOP politics 101
Trey Grayson - strategy and themes echo Sen. McConnell's.
Trey Grayson - partisan GOP politics 101
Democrats who harbor the hope that Grayson will be a sort of Blue Dog Republican will be sorely mistaken. Grayson’s attack theme is clearly McConnellesque. There will be no bipartisanship in Senator Grayson's future - not if he wants to carry the mantle of his role model, Mitch McConnell. Anyone who thinks otherwise is fooling themselves.
