Ward-Pugh Stood Up. Where Were The Others?

November 19th, 2012 · Comments Off

3rd District Congressional Debate Will Be Enjoyable

September 14th, 2012 · 2 Comments

Last night Rand Paul name dropped me while pointing out that Jack Conway flip-flopped on cap & trade. And I’ve – no joke – already received threats from a crazed Democrat. [Page One] If you missed last night’s debate, you may watch it via KET or C-SPAN. [KET & C-SPAN] Chris Thieneman, the guy who [...]
