This blog has been inactive for sometime as the blogger has been involved in a congressional campaign - his own. That effort having not been successful, it's time to re-enter the fray and the best way is to resurrect Peasantville from the rubble. First, let me say how absolutely pleased I am that Barack Obama was re-elected on 11/6/2012 -- he saved America from Romney/Ryan and the certain Great Depression II they would have wrapped in a pretty bow and delivered to the globe. Second, the 332-206 Electoral College results should firmly push the right wingers back and it's only going to get better over the next few years. That Kentucky hasn't caught up with the rest of the nation is not truly a surprise, but despite Mark Twain's assessment, I think it will take only a few years for the Commonwealth to catch up to the 21st Century.
