Early Election 2007 reports show Steve Beshear leading the Democratic primary by a wide margin (of course, it’s still 7 p.m., and the polls have only been closed for 60 minutes). On the Republican side, Anne Northup has a commanding early lead over incumbent Gov. Ernie Fletcher, making it look like the state will be heading back to Democratic leadership after Fletcher’s four-year GOP experiment failed in Frankfort. (I could think of another “F” word to continue the alliteration, but this being a family blog, I passed).
None of the candidates for either party really impressed me this year, but I have to really question the voters’ support of Beshear, who, if nothing else, looks and sounds like an idiot. Is this REALLY the face of Kentucky we want representing us as the entire world watches when the World Equestrian Games arrive in 2010? Call me superficial (I am), but the guy just looks smarmy, and I hate the way he talks.
I also hate the way he smiles — that creepy grin that showcases what seems like 127 teeth. The guy looks evil.
Actually, the guy looks like a He-Man villain.
In case you’re confused, Beshear is on the right.
