November 4, 2008 Louisville, Kentucky Needless to say I'm very disappointed that Bruce Lunsford didn't beat Senator
Mitch McConnell, but I can take comfort in knowing that I gave it my best shot
to get rid of Mitch McConnell's slimy ass and I also realize that Bruce
Lunsford must be disappointed because Bruce gave this race his all. The way I
see it the best man didn't win, but on the brighter side the policies of Senator
Mitch McConnell inspired the rest of America to elect Barack Obama. I suggest if the Republicans are smart they will ditch Mitch McConnell as their
Senate Minority Leader, but I hope they don't because Mitch McConnell inspired
millions of Americans all across this land to vote for Barack Obama and helped
the democrats gain House and Senate seats. Nationally Mitch McConnell is the
gift that keeps on giving and if the Republicans keep Mitch McConnell as their
minority leader Mitch will lose them more House and Senate seats in 2010. Keep
up the good work Mitch. As a Kentuckian I apologize to the majority of of the citizens in the United
states of America that we didn't get rid of senator Mitch McConnell and I thank
all of the states that voted to elect Barack Obama as the next President of the
United States of America. Last night we saw history being made and I just couldn't let this moment go by
without trying to capture it so I put my camcorder next to a flat screen TV and
videotaped Kentucky folks watching Barack Obama giving his victory speech. As I
videotaped these folks watching Barack Obama, with tears of joy running down my
70 year old cheeks, I knew I was at the right place at the right time even if it
was Kentucky. The video is below.
What a day Ashley Judd speaking for
Democrats, Lisa Tanner singing our National anthem (Wow can that girl sing) and
Bruce Lunsford, a man that will shake your hand, doesn't dodge a debate
and will speak before regular folks with the video camera running. Bruce
Lunsford is the real deal, I don't care what the Chamber of Commerce says.
Below are 3 Videos in this order:
Mike Watt traveled all the way from Mayfield,
Kentucky to shoot photos of the event.

Realizing some folks couldn't make it to the event Mike and I have tried to give
you a flavor of the event through our eyes with our cameras and camcorder.

The big boys were in Hardin County, Kentucky today and they were fired up
and ready to go. Among those at the rally were former Nebraska Governor and
former U.S. Senator J. Robert “Bob” Kerrey, former Governor John Young Brown
Jr., Governor Steve Beshear,
Lunsford, Mike Weaver, former Senator Walter"Dee" Huddleston, Greg Fischer, State Rep. Jimmie Lee and more.
This tells me the Democratic party is leaving no stone unturned to win in
November. I've put together 4 fairly short videos of the event and they are
below. I also managed to get a few photos,

Bowling Green, Kentucky
Right here in red state Kentucky folks were standing in the cold rain
waiting to get in the Bowling Green airport to hear and see former President
Bill Clinton stump for US senatorial candidate
and Kentucky's 2nd district congressional candidate
I feel Kentuckians are ready for change and I base this feeling on what
I'm seeing and I'm seeing it all over Kentucky. Hell Western Kentucky is one of
the most conservative places on earth, a Mitch McConnell strong hold and
folks there Thursday October 23, 2008 were chanting "Ditch
Mitch" at the Kentucky Dam Village Convention Center McConnell/Lunsford debate
site. This sort of thing would not have occurred a year ago. I'm tellin' ya
Mitch is in real trouble.
Videos of the event are below. I also managed to get a few photos. Click
