Well isn’t this just adorable. Check out the fundraising email that hate group president Frank Simon sent out for GOP KY State Auditor candidate John Kemper III:

Dear Friend,

John Kemper is a strong conservative who is the Republican running for Kentucky State Auditor in the General Election this November 8, 2011. The Auditor is a very important office because he can investigate all state spending and expose any corruption.

John is Pro-Life, Pro-Second Amendment, Pro-Family, and a strong Christian husband and father. John has never held an elected office and is not beholding to anyone in government.

We are having a great meeting on July 26, 2011 to help John’s Campaign. It will be at the Springhurst Clubhouse from 6pm to 8pm at: 4200 Springhurst Blvd, Louisville, KY 40241. The Clubhouse is near The Summit, behind the Kroger on Hwy 22 and next to the Springhurst Pool. See map below.

Les Naiman (probably the best caterer in the business) will be catering the event!

John will answer questions from the audience.

If at all possible, please tell others, bring a friend, and come to this great event. If you plan to attend, please RSVP by replying to this email. If you can’t make it on July 26th, please consider making a donation to help John. You can donate to his campaign by clicking below:

These levels of donors will be printed on the program:

Benefactor $500       Partner $250       Patriots $100       Minuteman $50

Please make your check out to Friends of John T Kemper, III and fill out the form on the next page. You can also donate at on John’s website using Pay Pal.

Invited guests include Phil Moffett, Norm Davis of Take Back Kentucky, Bob Kleets from Northern KY and Bill Farmer.

I hope you will join us on the 26th of July and give your support to John Kemper for Auditor.

Frank Simon

I don’t know about you, but I thought it was rather tasteful of Frank to not mention how the gays orchestrated the Holocaust and want to rape your children in this email.

Lex Vegas odds on the next candidate to get such an email from hate group president Frank Simon heavily favor Some Dude Named Bill Johnson, defender of democracy from non-existent organizations and their homeless minions

… no matter how much you beg him, David Williams:

The race to see who’s more awful in Kentucky Commissioner of Agriculture race

Kentuckians have the rare opportunity this November to choose between two candidates that were endorsed by hate group president Frank Simon in the primary. Choices, choices!

James Comer, who is also endorsed by Kentucky Right to Life (a group that wants to criminalize abortion in cases of rape and incest, outlaw birth control pills, and says abortion causes breast cancer), bragged about consummating his hate group endorsement this weekend at the American Family Association candidate forum:

Comer also posted a campaign video on his Facebook page this morning, attacking his Democratic opponent that I warned you all not to elect, Bob Farmer. Here we see Bob Farmer speaking at a Frank Simon hate group forum about not being a farmer, and how people from Appalachia are inbred and toothless:

I’m ready to call my endorsement in this race. Skip it.

David Williams slobbers all over hate group president Frank Simon, again

Remember how David Williams repeatedly kissed the ass of hate group president Frank Simon at his candidate forum back in February? Williams said that the man who calls homosexuals pedophiles, promotes books that claims gays were behind the Holocaust, compares Obama to Hitler, refers to abortion as genocide, says that our current political system promotes sodomy in schools, and that Muslims are about to take over America… is his longtime friend and ally in Frankfort.

And today in Frankfort, even without a tea party primary opponent nipping at his heels, David Williams doubled down on his love for hate group president Frank Simon.

From the CJ:

Senate President David Williams, the Republican candidate for governor, courted members of Frank Simon’s Tea Party of Kentucky group Saturday during a candidates’ forum in which he spent as much time talking about President Barack Obama as he did his Democratic opponent, Gov. Steve Beshear.

He said that Obama, a Democrat, wants to make the country a “European-style democracy” and that he is trying to “destroy our capacity to create cheap electricity” by regulating the coal industry.


Williams was clearly the headliner, taking the stage and calling Simon “my friend for a long time.” He went on to bash Beshear for not attending the event and said his “No. 1 priority” for Jefferson County will be to repeal “the unconstitutional student assignment plan.”


“Gov. Beshear’s seat is empty because he doesn’t want your support,” Williams said. “He doesn’t want to come talk to you about the issues.”

No, Governor Beshear isn’t there because, despite all of his glaring faults, he is too good of a human being to kiss the ass of the leader of a hate group in return for his political support. There are some awful things that even he won’t do.

So there’s that…

Todd P’Pool, John Kemper III, and James Comer were also there to strut their stuff for hate group president Frank Simon. As for what I have to say about that, here’s what Simon says:

When asked afterward why it’s important to know whether candidates running for auditor or agriculture commissioner oppose abortion, Simon said those stances are telling about the candidates’ “character.”

“We want all people in public office to have good character,” Simon said.

Very true, Frank.

When you’re in the voting booth this November, be should to think about the character of Williams, P’Pool, Kemper and Comer. And their good friend Frank Simon.

Frank Simon makes some endorsements in KY primary

no comments
April 26, 2011

Kentucky’s most famous bigot and hate group president Frank Simon has just released his endorsements for next month’s primaries.

Surprisingly, he sits out over half of the races, including the one that we’ve been keeping an eye out for, the GOP gubernatorial primary. Simon praises Williams, Moffett and Holsclaw in the footnotes, but fails to bless any of the candidates with his Holy goodness. He also sits out the GOP race for Auditor, as well as the Democratic races for Secretary of State and Treasurer.

The candidates that did receive his endorsement were:

Robert Farmer- Democratic nomination Commissioner of Agriculture

Some Dude Named Bill Johnson- GOP nomination for Secretary of State

James Comer- GOP nomination for Commissioner of Agriculture

Here’s the screengrab below:

Here are the footnotes for the GOP gubernatorial candidates:

Holsclaw is an outstanding public servant and has done a great job as Jefferson County Clerk.

Moffett, a businessman, has won numerous TeaParty polls across KY. He supports charter schools and supports replacing KY’s taxes on income and profits with a consumption tax. He is pro-life.

Williams has done a great job as president of the Kentucky Senate by blocking numerous tax increases and blocking increasing state debt that were promoted by the Democrat party. He is also pro-life and blocked expanded gambling.

I guess Frank Simon chickened out. What a let down.

And we have to wonder what David Williams thinks about this? After all, Williams visited Simon in February in order to kiss his ring and rave about the work of Simon over the years, and this is the thanks he gets? Or maybe the fact that Simon didn’t go all out for Moffett is the payoff for their long history of collaboration in taking away the rights of women and drumming up fear of the gays? One has to wonder…

David Williams gets KY Right to Life endorsement (UPDATE)

Not a big surprise. As David Williams explained at Frank Simon’s hate group candidate forum back in February, he has been a long time ally of Simon when it comes to eroding the rights of women in Kentucky.

Frank Simon’s endorsements should be coming out soon, and I’m still betting on David Williams coming through with the upset win.

UPDATE: Right on cue, Williams’ new radio ad, below:

AFA says blacks "fornicate" and "rut like rabbits" because of welfare

no comments
April 6, 2011

Here are some more classy thoughts that we’ve come to know and love from the hate group American Family Association:

Welfare has destroyed the African-American family by telling young black women that husbands and fathers are unnecessary and obsolete. Welfare has subsidized illegitimacy by offering financial rewards to women who have more children out of wedlock. We have incentivized fornication rather than marriage, and it’s no wonder we are now awash in the disastrous social consequences of people who rut like rabbits.

Attention political candidates of Kentucky this cycle: if you fill out the candidate survey of KY AFA president Frank Simon in order to seek his endorsement, these are the views that you are endorsing. Be warned.

I’m still betting on Simon’s longtime associate and ally David Williams picking up the endorsement. There’s just too much history between them for Simon to turn his back on Williams now, when he needs him most.

KDP hits Williams on gambling, but Ostrander comforts him

April 5, 2011

The KDP just released a statement on David “Not a Big Gambler” Williams:

“As the State Senate Republicans needlessly return to Frankfort tomorrow, Senate President David Williams could use a little advice. Given his fondness for gambling, we’ll offer him some advice from the original gambler – Kenny Rogers:

Senator Williams, you got to know when to hold em’ and know when to fold em’. Since the State Senate can’t pass any legislation that will become law, you’re certainly not holding much. But you’ve also wasted over $600,000 of taxpayer money by demanding to stay in session while not doing any work, so the time to fold ‘em passed a while ago.

Senator Williams, you got to know when to walk away and know when to run. You should have walked away when the House Democrats rejected your plan to cut education – you should have run when the House Republicans joined them.

Senator Williams, the 2011 special session is over, the dealin’ is done. And that’s an ace that you can keep.” – Dan Logsdon, Chairman, Kentucky Democratic Party

It included a link to this musical performance of a Silver Fox:

No really, it did. (not snark, this is real)

But look who was there to comfort David Williams: Kent Ostrander of the Family Foundation.

However, Executive Director of the Family Foundation of Kentucky Kent Ostrander says Williams admitted his gambling problems long ago, and voters know he’s stood against the policy.

“Over these last number of years, his convictions and his concerns have continued to grow and we are extremely pleased that he has taken the stand that he has publicly against casinos. And that he has personally told us that he doesn’t go to casinos anymore because he sees the problems that they generate,” he says

Doesn’t go to casinos anymore? You mean, in the last 2 weeks?

But its good to know that giant bigot Kent Ostrander still has David Williams’ back. Though the big question I have is whether this revelation will strain his long relationship and alliance with hate group president Frank Simon. He’ll be giving out his endorsement soon, and we have to wonder if this will hurt Williams’ chances of getting this coveted prize.

Huckabee visiting Kentucky’s favorite bigot university

March 31, 2011

I think he’ll receive a lovely reception at the University of the Cumberlands:

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) – Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee will speak next week at the Southern Baptist-affiliated University of the Cumberlands.

Huckabee, a potential contender in next year’s Republican presidential primary, will be on the Williamsburg campus on April 5.


Huckabee will be the headliner at a leadership event sponsored by the University of the Cumberlands and the Forcht Group of Kentucky Center for Excellence.

The University of the Cumberlands of course is the bigoted fundamentalist training camp that David Williams tried to sneak $11 million in taxpayer money to back in 2006. The KY Supreme Court nixed that sweatheart deal, one of the few times that the David Williams-Frank Simon alliance for bigotry was defeated in Kentucky over the last decade.

The Frank Simon Straw Poll

no comments
March 24, 2011

I missed the results from the straw poll at Frank Simon’s bigot forum last month, but apparently Phil Moffett, Addia Wuchner and Some Dude Named Bill Johnson won their race among the 100 or so people that attended. (I voted for Holsclaw, Kemper and SDNBJ, fyi)

Lex Vegas odds still have David Williams winning the coveted Frank Simon endorsement, though. There’s just too much of a long history of collaboration between David Williams and Simon when it comes to taking away women’s reproductive rights, hating on the Gays, and stoking fear of brown people. And Frank Simon knows how to pick a winner.

Phil Moffett isn’t Rand Paul

no comments
March 4, 2011

Hotline has a surprisingly thorough and accurate rundown on why Phil Moffett has not and likely will not be able to repeat the success of Rand Paul in this year’s gubernatorial primary. (nothing against Hotline, it’s just rare that national publications are able to nail down the specifics of Kentucky’s electoral peculiarities)

There was one factor that Brennan did not mention, however. Whereas Trey Grayson honorably rejected kissing the ass of hate group president and Louisville Tea Party leader Frank Simon, David Williams has jumped in with both feet. That makes Phil Moffett’s job even that much harder in the primary.
