Meanwhile, In Kentucky...

They're voting on governor in Kentucky today, and all indications point to a turn-over from Republican to Democrat. Gov. Ernie Fletcher is the Repub incumbent, and as of yesterday a poll had the Democrat, Steve Beshear, ahead of Fletcher by 20 points.

The Fletcher camp was desperate enough to try a very nasty dirty trick in the closing hours of the campaign: voters got an anonymous automated phone call from someone claiming to speak for gays and announcing that "the homosexual lobby" was proud to endorse Steve Beshear.

But just to cover all bases, Fletcher also brought the Ten Commandments into the state capitol rotunda yesterday, just to remind everyone that he's on God's side.

Fine man, that Ernie Fletcher. We trust he'll have time to reflect on his own character in retirement.
