December 30th, 2009 · Comments Off

This week Governor Steve Beshear spends 2:34 talking about helping Kentuckians through tough times: It’s too bad he refuses to consider comprehensive tax reform.

Oh Snap: Repub Caucus Offers A Different List

December 30th, 2009 · 1 Comment

From the Republican Minority Caucus of the Metro Council comes the “Summary of 2009 Council Accomplishments and Metro Missteps.” Let’s just dig right in by starting with the bad stuff, because that’s obviously more fun: Lawsuits and General Mismanagement Firefighter Lawsuit Instead of settling a lawsuit between the Firefighter’s Union and Metro that started many [...]

Smartest Newspaper Typo In Several Weeks

December 30th, 2009 · 1 Comment

At first I thought this Courier-Journal headline typo was funny. Then the realization hit me: it’s not a typo at all. Kentucky’s budget is so screwed (one hundred million trillion dollar shortfall) and we’re so broke that there’s no way we can afford the entire word: “udget” indeed. That’s all we’ve got. Cause we’re not [...]

Oh, Hey, It’s Jerry Abramson’s Year-End Top 10

December 30th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Mayor McCheese Jerry Abramson is trotting out this thing called “Top 10 Accomplishments of 2009″ which his office embargoed until now because, you know, this information is so terribly time-sensitive. They’ve even included a fancy graphic: So let’s take a look at his, um, “accomplishments” – k? Here they are, straight from the press release: [...]

2009 Can Just Suck It, Right? Amiright?

December 30th, 2009 · 2 Comments

Kinda puzzled that the Extreme Park warranted an entire editorial. But I guess defending Jerry Abramson one last time this year was a necessity. [C-J] Here’s part two of the interview with Ambassador Matthew Barzun. [The Local] The year is over. So what the heck happened with Metro Council? [Phillip Bailey] Councilcritter Kelly Downard wants [...]

It’s Time to Support Jim Gray for Lexington

December 29th, 2009 · 2 Comments

It’s a slow news day, so allow me to whore myself out for Lexington just a moment. I feel it’s important to share this with our local audience. Lexington needs a fresh start. The city needs a new mayor. It’s time to send Jim Newberry (the current mayor – closely aligned with Jerry Abramson, share [...]

Fischer Campaign Still Lying About Finances

December 29th, 2009 · Comments Off

Dear Greg Fischer: Why can’t you stop pushing something that’s inaccurate? I can’t keep count of the times you’ve lied about being the fundraising front-runner. Your own campaign admits that’s not based in fact. So why is this just about the only thing you tout in fundraising asks? (It’s not exactly wise to say you’re [...]

It’s Tuesday Morning & You’re Not Really Working

December 29th, 2009 · 6 Comments

Since it’s really still holiday time and everybody in an office is just sitting around on YouTube or reading Cheezburger, posting will be light today and tomorrow. Because why not! It’s the holidays. WHAS11 has the most unintentionally hilarious Twitter line of the week. Something about getting tough on bad bears. Heh. Yes, I went [...]
