Maybe it’s more accurate to say Bill Johnson embarrassed himself. Who knows. We report, you decide, those are your two choices.

Bill Johnson’s favorite Secretary of State in history is… Trey Grayson. The guy who was just there. And the guy who for years allowed ACORN and other radical left-wing forces to usurp our elections by bussing in tens of thousands of homeless veterans to vote illegally for Democrats.
Later, Goodies pressed Bill Johnson over this plank in his platform. Bill Johnson explained that homeless people should not be allowed to vote. Because they have no address, all Kentuckians who have fallen on hard times — which is increasingly likely given the policies being pushed by members of Bill Johnson’s own party — should not be allowed to vote.
And if we make exceptions for economically struggling Kentuckians, if we allow poor people to vote, then where will that take us? Bill Johnson has the answer:
What about somebody wealthy for example, who may be afraid? Because their house may be robbed? Or their child may be kidnapped?
That’s a fair comparison. Poor people who’ve lost their homes and want to vote… and very rich people who are being targetted by criminals who have absolutely no other way to locate their address or their child’s school or where they go on vacation without accessing voter rolls.
As Ms. Grimes said in response:
“I have come to believe that his actions and statements are not for a lack of understanding but rather they are an intentional misrepresentation of the law. And that’s wrong for Kentucky. That’s wrong for the people of this state.”
She then went on to explain clearly the law of the state, the very law Bill Johnson willfully misunderstands, and the law he’s supposed to be running to enforce.
They purused this for a while, or, Bill Johnson stammered his way through some weird circular reasoning. And then he declared war on the federal government and came a hair’s width away from calling for Kentucky’s seccessation from the union:
“Ms. Grimes references the federal government. Is this the same Federal Government that says Obamacare is constitutional? Is this the same Federal Government that’s got us $14 trillion in debt. The same Federal Government that’s attacking our coal fields, telling oil companies they can’t drill. The same Federal Government that’s stampeding all over state‘s rights and individual rights. Frankly, our constituchu, our constitutchia, our constitution is what’s important.”
Can you really trust a man who calls for revolution but who can’t pronounce the word ‘Constitution.’
Oh… and then later he went on some wild riff about abortion which further demonstrates that he doesn’t quite understand what a “Secretary of State” does, or at least he’s pretending not to.
Also, he apparently refers to “the homeless” as just “homeless.” As in:
“I’ve talked to homeless.”
Seriously. He said that. Anyway. I could go on but here’s the entire hour boiled into about 3 minutes, and missing questions from viewers, half of whom were on indecipherable phone lines.
Also… as you watch that… ponder this question. If voter fraud is as widespread as Bill Johnson claims, if the nefarious forces of ACORN that he talked at length about last night (which no longer exist) are actively stealing elections across the state of Kentucky, then maybe that is why the Democratic Party controls every single office throughout the Commonwealth, from Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul’s Senate seats to the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th Congressional seats. Bill Johnson has finally gotten to the bottom of how Democrats were able to win one shocking election after another. Perfect sense. Well-thought out. If you’re reading Bill — and you probably are — good job.
