Rand Paul Win-watch, Episode I

This (and this (not to mention this)) is probably why Democratic candidate Jack Conway is losing to Republican Rand Paul:


How else can you explain the Commonwealth’s extremely positive response to Rand Paul, a man whose national palatability ranks him somewhere between a Klansmen and a viable candidate for the U.S. Senate in 1810 (assuming he’d have to run, of course)? For someone who cannot even successfully delineate between Hazard, Kentucky and Hazzard, Georgia, Paul is enjoying a sizeable lead that conventional wisdom says he should not have were it not for Conway’s increasing resemblance to Paul-lite.

But then again, this is Kentucky, where conventional wisdom goes to die in a bourbon-soaked interstate car crash. If you need any evidence of that fact, it’s called “Jim Bunning,” and you people elected him twice.

    As my old football coach used to say..I can’t believe we’re losing to these fuckers.
