Yesterday we complained about Greg Fischer’s lack of Louisville knowledge.
Then we spotted this:

In his defense, if you take the Census MSA, Nashville has a slightly higher population than Louisville. However, the mayor of Louisville only gets to govern people who live in Louisville or Jefferson County proper, not people who live across the river.
Then again, maybe Fischer is confused that across the river isn’t Louisville with his magic ice machine inventing store over there.

According to Wikipedia, if you use the county wide numbers, Louisville (Jefferson County) is 713,000 and Nashville (Davidson County) is 626,000. These numbers are all so confusing since there are so many political subdivisions in Kentucky. I did not do a personal count so I must rely on what I can discover.
None the less, Fischer is confused on many issues and perhaps has had his brain in the ice serving machine, that he invented, for far too long.

This is the source.

As of 2008, the consolidated populations of these city-counties including other incorporated places are, respectively: 880,380; 713,877; 626,144; 199,486; and 114,737.
