Page One & The ‘Ville Voice on TeeVee

You’d think those fancy tv people would learn their lesson and stop putting us on the air– but no! We’re way too powerful and important or whatever.

This week Rick referred to Larry Clark as Perry Clark (Perry: at least he didn’t refer to you as Doug Hawkins), made fun of Jerry Abramson’s budget and yammered about various other politically incorrect topics. Ruh ro.

Page One & The ‘Ville Voice on TeeVee!

Oh noes! They let us on the tubes again and this week we had a lot to say.

From Big Oil hypocrisy and press-tackling cops at the NRA convention to the mainstream media picking up stories without giving credit where credit is due and the 21% of Kentucky Democrats who voted on the basis of race… Rick discussed it all.

KDP Calls Northup Out for Big Oil Hypocrisy

Residents of Kentucky’s Third Congressional District are no stranger to Anne Northup. And right now, they’re no stranger to Anne Northup’s campaign ad where she talks about how terrible high gas prices are and how she’s going to do something about it.

So… dun dun dun… the KDP got something right! They just put out a press release calling Northup out for her hypocrisy. Because, to put it simply, the woman owns between $500,002 and $1,050,000 in big oil stock according to her latest financial disclosure. Companies like Andarko Petroleum, Devon Energy, Exxon, Chevron, Royal Dutch and Schlumberger.

Northup has also taken more than $312,000 from the oil and gas industry PACs and employees, which you can research yourself here. In 2005 she voted for $85 billion worth of subsidies and tax breaks those industries [HR 6, Vote #445, 7/28/05] and in 2004 she voted against an amendment to the energy and water funding bill to increase renewable energy funding by $30 million [HR 4614, Vote #321, 6/25/2004].

Northup’s Holdings in Big Oil, Gas & Energy Companies

  • Anadarko Petroleum: $50,001-$100,000
  • Devon Energy: $100,001-$250,000
  • Exxon Mobil: $50,001-$100,000
  • Chevron: $50,001-$100,000
  • Royal Dutch: $100,001-$250,000
  • BP PLC: $50,001-$100,000
  • Schlumberger: $100,001-$250,000

Anne may be a nice woman and a great mother, but let’s get real here. This is first-rate hypocrisy and proves she’s way more out of touch with Louisville residents and everyday Kentuckians than anyone could ever imagine.

ALERT: Known Homosexual on TV Talking About Racism and Such Among Kentucky Democrats

You have been warned! Cover the ears of children and any elderly relatives living with you. We homosexualized the mainstream media in Louisville this afternoon in an interview with Joe Arnold of WHAS11. Something about 21% of Kentucky Democrats saying race played a role in their vote yesterday. Those were people who ADMITTED THIS TO A STRANGER TAKING NOTES ON A CLIPBOARD outside of their polling location, mind you.

Our comments about the Lundergan-McBrayer Machine got edited out. We said that the good old boy machine that’s been campaigning for Hillary for more than two years has a lot to do with last evening’s results in the presidential election. Oh well. We thought it’d be prudent for national media types to take that into consideration before casting every one of us barefoot Bluegrassers as a racist nut.

Long story short, look how awful we looked! Only had a few minutes to primp before we had to sound important. The sun was bright so we were squinty. But look how thin we are! The teevee totally doesn’t add ten pounds. Everyone says we need a haircut and a sideburn treatment but we think thinning hair looks awesome with giant Elvis chops. Fancy, huh?




Monday Afternoon Roundup. Primary Eve Edition.

Dropping Cynicism and Negativity? Who said “When people drop cynicism and drop negativity and work together, we can do anything?” Guess. It wasn’t Bruce Lunsford. Peep the video for proof. Something about doing Mitch McConnell’s dirty work? [YouTube]

Former racist Klan member and 700-year member of the U.S. Senate Robert Byrd (D-WV) endorsed Barack Obama. “Barack Obama is a noble-hearted patriot and humble Christian, and he has my full faith and support,” Byrd said. [Ben Smith/Politico]

One of the names listed on Greg Fischer’s illegal Obama flyer is none other than Paula McCraney. McCraney, you’ll recall if you’re in the Louisville media market, is the former spokeswoman for the Circuit Court Clerk who was fired after “someone” unsealed documents in the prominent local murder case of Ivan Cano. [WHAS11]

Someone is making phone calls at– get this– 3:00 A.M.— to voters, claiming to be from Bruce Lunsford’s U.S. Senate campaign. The calls are not coming from the Lunsford campaign. Stinks of retarded ass Fischer campaign behavior. What’s up with this, Kim & A.J.? [Press Release]

A Frank Simon-esque mailer that is sickeningly homophobic went out across the Louisville Metro Council’s 6th District attacking Democratic candidate Ken Herndon. Herndon’s opponent, incumbent George Unseld, is holding a 3:30 press conference to denounce it.

We’ve redacted a portion of the text from the mailer (claimed to have been paid for by “Citizens for Family and Moral Values”) because it’s, well, sick and inappropriate.

Take a peek:


The front of the mailer has a photo of four men at a gay pride parade and suggests that Ken Herndon tries to hide his sexual orientation, which isn’t true. “I guess when you live a life of trash…” is just some of the fancy language used.

The back is just beyond belief. It personally attacks a member of Herndon’s campaign staff, alleging that the staffer is a drunk driver and alleging that said staffer was “charged with being a pedophile.” Yeah, that’s right. Vomit-inducing.

Is this what DEMOCRATIC politics have come to in Louisville, Kentucky’s largest city? Discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation is despicable.

Frank Simon Rears His Hateful Head Again

Crazy/bigoted/racist/sexist/homophobic/anti-semitic hack Frank Simon is back in action. No, he’s not blaming the Holocaust on us gays again. This time he’s endorsing Democratic candidates who not only don’t want his endorsement but never asked for his endorsement. We received reports of Simon’s activities and immediately started digging. One endorsee’s name stuck out at us. Turns out Simon chose to endorse Brent Ackerson, a Democrat running for Louisville’s Metro Council in the 26th District.

I gave Brent a call at his home last evening to get to the bottom of things. He told me– emphatically– that he never sought Simon’s endorsement, doesn’t want his endorsement and wholly denounces his endorsement. So that should set the record straight in the ongoing saga of Simon craziness.

This isn’t the first time Frank Simon has pulled this trick. He did the same thing in 2006 when he endorsed Charlie Cunningham, who was running for judge at the time. Charlie never sought nor wanted Simon’s endorsement. It’s just a tactic he uses to harm people he doesn’t like, has a grudge against or wants to lose in the general election. It’s time local media woke up to Simon’s shenanigans and put an end to them once and for all. And the Republican Party should denounce his offensive activity.
