Idiots 4 Beshear
Last week, someone spammed several political blogs with an announcement that a group of "Republicans For Beshear" was being formed, and an e-mail address was provided. (We aren't going to repeat it here.)
At this point no one knows if this is a legitimate effort, or an ingenious move by an intrepid Fletcher supporter trying to get the names of would-be traitors in the GOP ranks.
If the latter, that's a pretty clever ploy.
But if it's the former, then they ought to change their name to "Idiots For Beshear."
No right-thinking Republican should even give a passing thought to voting for or supporting Beshear. Beshear is a classic liberal and at the same time he manages to be a retread and a throwback to the bad old days of the Democrats' stranglehold on Kentucky government.
The primary is over, and just a little reminder, Ernie Fletcher didn't pick that primary fight. Others did and he was forced to defend his position. Any grudge you may have against him is of your own making, not his.
Fletcher's been under attack from the Democrats for long enough. It was bad enough that fellow Republicans joined the attack during the primary. But Fletcher was re-nominated and now it's time for his opponents to get back on board.
You are either with Ernie Fletcher or you are with the Kentucky Democratic Party and its candidates and party philosophy.
