Barr ducking debate

So Garland (Andy) Barr has decided not to appear at the scheduled debate with challenger Nancy Jo Kemper sponsored by the League of Women Voters. How can a guy with 20 times as much money in his campaign chest be so a afraid of a little old lady like Kemper, a Christian pastor.

Clay’s true legacy

Tom Eblen’s Sept. 14 column about Henry Clay’s impact on modern political campaigns was a masterpiece. It should be must reading for history students. Clay, called Lexington’s favorite son, has been often quoted as saying, “I’d rather be right than president.”

Word to the wise

University of Kentucky President Eli Capilouto might want to remember President Richard Nixon as he responds to questions about the handling of a campus sexual assault case. It wasn't Nixon’s stupid mistakes that brought about his resignation. It was his stupid cover-up. Grrr.

Follow one great liberal

Gov. Matt Bevin’s comments at the Values Voter Summit were not Christian. Jesus taught tolerance, caring, sharing and forgiveness. I doubt Jesus would have approved of shedding blood. Shedding blood is an ISIS tactic, hardly something one would expect from a person professing to be a Christian.

Liberal hysteria over Bevin comments

It surely is ridiculous that when Gov. Matt Bevin quotes Thomas Jefferson he gets hit with the full force of the liberals and haters of true American history. Several times, Jefferson wrote in letters of correspondence: “What country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms.”
