Moonbats gather at the JFK Bridge, plan mass jump at noon
That loud collective wailing sound you heard late yesterday was the collective reaction of Kentucky's far-left fringe at the news that Andrew Horne had dropped out of the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate.
Horne, a former Marine and lawyer from Louisville, was the favorite candidate of the lefty kooks who felt he stood the best chance of beating Sen. Mitch McConnell this fall.
We never understood the loons' attraction to Horne, whose best qualification seemed to be that he lost the only other political race he ever attempted, a run in last year's 3rd District House primary where he lost to John Yarmuth.
Kentucky's moonbats, who show themselves at their idiotic best on the Web sites BluegrassRoots and Ditch Mitch, scoffed at the candidacy of Greg Fischer, were outraged when Bruce Lunsford got into the race, and dismiss outright the chances of the other hopefuls who've filed. Somehow they seemed to think that Horne was the best candidate to put up against McConnell.
Now they're wandering in the political desert and seem to be on the verge of mass suicide. They seem resigned to a Lunsford win and can't decide whether or not to support him in the fall.
Those of us in the conservative movement who are agonizing over the Republican Party's inevitable nomination of John McCain for the presidency can now take solace that the committed moonbats in Kentucky are facing a similar dilemma in the U.S. Senate race.
The only difference is that McCain has always been a viable candidate and his appeal is universally understood. A few on the left have made Horne into some sort of larger-than-life mythical figure and those of us with both feet on the ground just can't understand his popularity among the raving liberal lunatics.
At any rate, it's fun to watch the reaction to this news by those on the left.
