Jack Conway Shows The Kind Of Post-Bunning Leadership Kentucky Is Looking For


Of the four front runners in the race for the open U.S. Senate seat in Kentucky-- the one McConnell and Cornyn forced the senile and deranged Bunning to step down from-- Attorney General Jack Conway is clearly the best bet. He's got a clear record as a fair-minded Democrat who has stood, first and foremost, with ordinary working families, not with the special interests that dominate Kentucky fried politics. Take look at that 30 second spot (above) his campaign put out yesterday about the Bunning catastrophe. It stands in sharp contrast to the statements by both Republicans, McConnell's boy Trey Grayson and Ron Paul's son Rand, each of whom loudly supported Bunning's kamikaze tactics.

This morning's Lexington Herald Leader sees an uptick in support for Democrats because of widespread revulsion with Bunning's-- and the GOP's-- destructive scorch-and-burn agenda that has sought to make the United States ungovernable since Obama was elected president.
U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning ended his singular stand against extending unemployment benefits Tuesday night, but the national flap he created might have long-lasting effects on the Kentucky race to replace him... Several political analysts said Wednesday that Bunning's stance, which garnered ridicule and praise across the nation, provides an opening for Democrats who had been relegated to second-tier status in recent weeks as Kentucky's Republican primary generated a national buzz.

Analysts said they were not surprised Attorney General Jack Conway began airing a TV ad Wednesday that accused Republicans Trey Grayson and Rand Paul of "shamefully" supporting Bunning, a Hall of Fame pitcher, who Conway said was "throwing high and wild, hitting working families where it hurts."

...In a statement from Conway about his 30-second ad, which is the first of his campaign and airs on Lexington and Louisville stations, he called Bunning, Grayson and Paul "completely out of touch with the economic needs of Kentucky workers and families."

Trey Grayson has a new ad up too. Take a look. How do you think it stacks up against Conway's? And if you're still in the mood for watching videos, here's one from Chris Matthew's show that includes a visit from Jack Conway two days ago (too bad Tweety's such an unmitigated and worthless asshole):
