What if Jody had won?
A couple of us were sitting around night when one asked the question, "What if Jody had won the Democrat primary? Would he be acting this way?"
The answer we came up with was a resounding "no."
If it was Jody vs. Ernie this fall, we have no doubt that Jody would not have illegally recessed the House in a fit of pique. Instead, he'd be pushing the legislation through so he could claim some credit for it.
But because Jody lost, he's acting like a petulant schoolboy who didn't get an extra piece of pie at dessert, and Kentucky stands to lose out on hundreds of jobs and the much-needed airport expansion at Blue Grass Airport.
(Contrary to what Jody and his cronies say, we tend to think the airport board knows what they need and when they need it more than the Democrat leadership in the house does).
We read a comment on the Courier-Journal's web site urging the governor to have the house members arrested and ordered to report back to work if they do not reconvene on Monday. That's sounding more and more like an excellent idea to us.
