IT’S A NEW YEAR! Eleven months to go before the crushing inevitability of the 2020 Election.
Trump will take on Democrat TBD if he doesn’t stroke out
or get impeached before then. In Kentucky, we have incumbent Senator and Majority Leader Fuckface (R) running for a seventh term.
The most likely winner of the Democratic primary as of right now is retired Marine fighter pilot Amy McGrath
who looks like she coaches women’s basketball.
McGrath has a $9 million dollar war chest. She will need every bit of it to compete with Fuckface this year. She also has VALUABLE HOLLYWOOD ENDORSEMENTS.
Thanks, Grace. Love your show. McGrath’s platform consists of “woman fighter pilot/not Mitch McConnell” which
could won’t work.
There are some other candidates: Mike Broihier
and Steven Cox. Wait. . . Steven didn’t make the cutoff for entering into the primary. I asked him what happened.
At least he got a blue Twitter checkmark out of it. So he’s got that going for him.
So it’s Amy McGrath and everyone else. . . except a promising contender has entered the race. State Rep. Charles Booker put his hat in the ring last week.
Booker said he won’t be accepting money from a super PAC because of his “conviction” that big money ostracizes regular people from the political process.
“The majority of us in Kentucky are broke,” he said.
He believes he has a more powerful message for the time than McGrath does — on guns, for instance, Booker said he will keep a mandate to both respect the right to bear arms as protected in the Constitution and a moral obligation to keep Kentucky families safe.
Booker said what excites him most is the response from voters who trust him to advance the struggle of everyday Kentuckians. Without naming names, in one moment of candor over the phone, Booker said he was perplexed by leaders who say they want to beat Trump, but are unable to engage in the complex range of the political left’s thoughts, opinions, and anxieties. . .
Booker is pushing a progressive platform (Green New Deal, Medicare For All) as non-partisan solutions for Kentuckians. It’s risky but is it any riskier than McGrath’s pro-Trump Democrat gambit?
McGrath and Booker are both threatening enough to McConnell that whenever I type their names in Google search, I get these ads at the top.
If you’re scared, say you’re scared. Fuckface.
