Well, all of us who were passed the torch from our hard-nosed, and successful, predecessors in the Kentucky Democratic Party left us with one warning; don't f**k this up. Unfortunately we f**ked it up, royally.
How could we have been so arrogant and blind to allow the destruction of the Democratic party in the Commonwealth? The lack of guts for one and the total disregard for reality. We failed to stand up to the Progressive locusts that consumed everything in their path. We failed to give our egos a day off when we needed to the most. We allowed a Jack Conway to suck his way into a 2010 General Election for U.S. Senate knowing damn well he was going to lose. We sacrificed a U.S. Senate seat for one reason; to keep hillbilly king Daniel Mongiardo from sitting in it. Prejudice, pure prejudice.
Now we look upon the smoldering heap that was once a proud party made up of good people, Liberal, Moderate and Conservative. But we allowed the Progressives to poison the well with their bullshit conform or die attitude. So now the people of Kentucky have spoken, they will not conform they will switch teams leaving the Kentucky Democratic Party in shambles.
Can we, as a party, rise from the ashes? Yes we can but I suspect we will now live in a musical chair political world; one cycle red then the next blue. I feel the old Democratic Party dominance in Kentucky is now a thing of the past and so is Jack Conway, Maybe Adam Edelen, however, he is young enough to recover.
Jack Conway's political career is officially over, he is a laughing stock. He first was humiliated by little Ron Paul and now wacko Bevin, as he will soon be called, dusted his tail when the so-called polling predicted a Conway victory. It just shows that Liberal meddling in political polling has left that resource radioactive and untrustworthy. When polling is manipulated to show a victory for one side or the other, and when they're defeated, it rewards the victor with a mandate! They bellow to the masses how they slew the dragon at the last minute, they play that damn Hoosiers music in the background while they Jimmy Chitwood their way into a powerful first term.
So now we sit in utter desolation, maybe sip a glass or two of scotch and watch as Kentucky Blue turns Kentucky Red for a long time to come.
