McGrath wins the primary in Kentucky.

All of the absentee ballots are in and Amy McGrath beat Charles Booker in the Democratic primary for Senator in Kentucky. Booker was the candidate supported by the Justice Democrats (AOC, Ilhan Omar, etc). Booker also got a nice push by the BLM protests.

But even though many of us were encouraged that so many voters were for him (we can debate new ideas without becoming pinko commies), his chances of winning in Kentucky against Mitch McConnell were infinitesimal. McGrath’s chances seem to be a bit better. She’s a veteran and not afraid of guns. We’ll see. If it looks like the Republicans will lose the senate, what would be gained by re-electing Mitch who would immediately become a back bencher?

I’m kind of sick of the sports contest approach to covering political campaigns. It starts way too early and too much emphasis is placed on personal quirks and words taken out of context. Sure, journalists need to make a living but I wish they’d cover this stuff more responsibly. Anyway, I’m kind of burned out on this whole election year already. November can’t come soon enough. Let’s get this over with.

Nevertheless, McGrath vs McConnell could be very exciting. That’s the one to watch.

  1. I have to check the National and state parks in the vicinity… since I can’t take that walking tour of Scotland this year.

    For a second I was afraid you were going to go Ammon Bundy on me.

    • I don’t have a gun yet.
      Sooooo… there’s that.

      • Actually, in order to get a second accepted PA ID, I got a concealed carry permit. NO gun yet, but thinking about it, certainly not to carry it, but things are getting stranger and stranger

        • I’ve considered it believe me. The biggest mistake the 2A types made was letting liberals buy guns. Not that we would use them but you know, self defense and everything.
