Here’s Jerry Abramson trashing Fancy Farm:
Many big name Kentucky Democrats skipped this year’s Fancy Farm Picnic, and the excuses varied: Gov. Steve Beshear was in Europe, there were no statewide races this year, and some Democrats did not want to weigh in on Obama.
Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson declined to attend because he and his wife were celebrating their anniversary. But he told the Louisville Rotary Club Thursday that he didn’t miss being at the annual political speaking event at the Fancy Farm picnic.
“I think the days of yelling and screaming at folks who are up on the stage — just to yell and scream and make fun of them are days of the past,” Abramson said of the event. “Where was I? It was my anniversary.”
This is just the latest flap in Jerry’s world. From complaining that Louisville’s West End is too black and too poor to trashing the country’s largest political picnic, he’s clearly not living in the reality-based community.
If the organizers of Fancy Farm know what’s best, he’ll be barred from ever attending and the ban on Jerry will be loudly promoted each year.
Somebody should probably remind Mayor McCheese that it’s his political party responsible for the nastiness and sniping. It’s his people who spend their days defaming and attacking those who dare ask questions. It’s he who is responsible for a super-majority of the problems in Kentucky because it’s his people at the helm.
