Time for a breather. A couple of months at least. Three would be even better. Three pleasant months of relative peace and quiet.
No Rand Paul ads accusing Secretary of State Trey Grayson of being connected at one hip with the recipients of the Wall Street bailout and connected at the other hip with President Barack Obama.
Quite a gymnastic trick by Grayson, having one hip on Wall Street and the other in the U.S. Capitol.
No Trey Grayson ads saying Rand Paul has lots of strange ideas, particularly on terrorism and national security. And even worse — Gasp! Horrors! — Paul is one of those disciples of evil known as a Duke Blue Devil.
No ads from Attorney General Jack Conway's campaign portraying Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo as a pig feeding at the public trough (hope the menu included creme brûlee) and using public funds (actually Mongiardo's housing allowance) to finance a real estate deal.
No ads from Dr. Dan's campaign accusing Jack Conway of "approving" or "deciding" utility rate hikes (which are actually approved or decided by the Public Service Commission) after taking campaign contributions from utility officials.
No ads from Conway or Mongiardo showing off their babies. No ads of guys trying to prove their macho creds with guns, dogs and pickup trucks.
No ads featuring a succession of just white folks saying, "Andy Barr is one of us."
Yep. Three months of peace and quiet before the silly season descends upon us again would be nice. Four would be even better, though. And five, well, that would be perfect.
