  1. I observed Citizen Fischer and the Chief having a long chat at the Hike & Bike. A premature job interview perhaps?

  2. How interesting that an out-of-town newspaper, the Cincinnati Enquirer, had more details on the altercation at Barbara Lee’s this past weekend than the Louisville Courier-Journal did.

  3. Of course you should be a member of the political party that is choosing it’s candidate. That’s the fundamental point of what a political party is – a freedom of association.

    Choices have consequences. If you choose to be an independent (which is all good and well) then in our system, you shouldn’t whine about having to wait until November to vote.

  4. TP…then the parties (dem and rep) should fund their own ‘private’ candidate selection process…problem solved.
    Oh wait…as Jake like to remind his readers…they’re pretty much broke, and couldn’t fund their own primary selection process.
    So we effectively get “Political Party Subsidies”.

  5. I am registered with a particular major political party JUST so that I am eligible to cast my vote in the primaries. Of course I am restricted to only voting for a candidate within that particular party, but I can choose to vote for the party person(s) I consider their BEST QUALIFIED to run in a general election – which is some measure of solace in case the candidate I actually vote for in the Fall happens to lose.

  6. “E” is spot on!

    To mimic Sen. Carroll’s CNN eloquence,
    If a party wants a primary, David, then they should pay for it. If they don’t like it they should move to another country.

    NON-PARTISAN elections are the answer. LEXINGTON does them as do many, many other U.S. cities, counties, and states.
