The PAC is back!!!!

These should be heady times for Kentucky Republicans. After all, we have both US Senate seats, five of six seats in the US House of Representatives, control of the state Senate for the first time in anyone's memory, and we are gaining on picking up a majority in the state House of Representatives. Plus we are electing more local officeholders than ever before, some in counties that have never had a Republican county judge-executive until now. And the biggest prize is that we now have the governorship for the first time since the period 1968-1972.

But all's not well in the Republican Party of Kentucky. Our governor is under fire from partisan Democrats so intent on taking back power that they will stoop at nothing. Gov. Ernie Fletcher is under misdemeanor indictment from the most trumped-up charges that anyone can imagine. And many in our party seem intent on helping the Democrats instead of defending our governor from a mess that, ironically, many of our Republican leaders helped create.

That's crap. Total crap. It's time for the GOP to get its act together and start acting like the enemy is the Kentucky Democratic Party and its operatives like Greg Stumbo and Crit Luallen, not our own governor.

So that's why the PAC is back. The original Kentucky Pachyderm blog gave a strong voice to Kentucky Republicans, but in the last stages of its life it wandered into irrelevance before disappearing without a whimper. This KPAC will pull no punches and we'll call a spade a spade, an idiot an idiot, and a partisan Democrat hack a danger to our great Commonwealth and our beloved nation.

Comments are welcome and appreciated. Anonymous comments are OK. There are only a few rules. No gratuitous profanity. That will get your post edited or deleted, and repeat offenders may be put on moderation or banned.

And no libelous statements. If you make a comment about someone that could be construed as libel or slander, you'd better post the proof to back it up or offer to make it available to the Blogmaster via e-mail at

Tips are welcome to and anonymity is guranteed, but again if you are making an allegation of wrongdoing or what you say is questionable in terms of libel/slander, you'd better provide the proof of your accusations. Scanned documents, MP3 files of telephone conversations, etc., all will be considered supporting evidence.

So have fun -- and remember that we don't need to be fighting amongst ourselves. We need to support our governor and remember that the enemies are the Democrats.

The problem is we won power and our leader chooses to make stupid personnel choices rather than policy.

Speaking of policy, why has bonded in debtedness in Kentucky gone from $800 million in 2003 to over $2 Billion in 2006.

I agree that some of the personnel choices have been bad. But the worst ones, non-merit category, were made by the leaders of this party with a special emphasis on the federal delegation. Many non-merit job applicants were told that the senators and congressmen/woman would be having major input into who got those jobs. And the worst ones, merit category, were made by those non-merits chosen by the officials and leaders.

Fletcher himself admits that he is not politically savvy. His strong point is policy and in that category he's done pretty well.

I may be a rare breed of conservative in that I have never really worried about debts or deficits. I am much more concerned about what we're spending the money on than where it's coming from. I'd rather see the federal government go a googol dollars in debt to fund national defense than to spend one dollar in a well-in-the-black budget for social programs that result in income redistribution or direct welfare payments to individuals.

What about Lincoln's emphasis on the need to spend tax dollars on internal improvements?

You aren't a conservative if you dont care about fiscal restraint or even fiscal non-idiocy. The only business in the world that can survive year in, year out w/expenditures higher than income is government. Fortunately for Democrats, Republicans no longer embody fiscal restraint/conservatism, instead partisan hacks (like yourself) who lack true ideological grounding, dominate the RP. Repubs can longer claim that the Dems are the Party of Fiscal Excess, spend away liberalism. Repubs control Congress and the White House and our budget is f***ed. That is wonderful news for Dems b/c Repubs cant even claim to be stronger on national security (the latest National Intel Estimate proves that)!!
