We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

I know it's been a while since I've posted anything. I've had a lot going on. I will begin posting regularly again though.
First up are the problems with old Dirty Ernie and his former Lt. Governor, Steve Pence. This is just one more nail in the coffin of the Fletcher administration. Brett Hall, the governor's mouth piece, speculated that Pence is going to run for governor though Pence has denied he's running for anything.
There are some other interesting things going on here too. Pence announced his plans not to seek reelection on the Fletcher slate earlier this week. He also said he plans to resign his position as head of the Justice cabinet. The next day, Fletcher asked for Pence's resignation and Pence promptly said, "No!" So what gives? Do we have a civil war going on in the Republican Party? For a party that seemed unified, they are coming apart at the seams. Fletcher picked Pence for the job.
It does bode well for state Republicans and Fletcher is running out of time to clean this mess up. One can be sure he'll face primary competition next year and I'd say it'll get ugly.
Did I mention that Brett Hall dropped the F-bomb to Larry Dale Keeling over at the Herald-Leader, yet no other paper is going to publish the statement. And I thought the Courier Journal had more cahoneys.
