For ye who missed it:
Dearest B&P readers,
If you’re his friend on the facebook (or a B&P fan) then you probably saw a flurry of messages last night about Joe being on the Maddow Show. Alas… larger entities interceded and his appearance was not to be.
But no such luck for you Republican Kentuckians tonight… Joe is scheduled to appear on Ms. Maddow’s excellent MSNBC program this evening (you know, Wednesday… today, man, today!) at 9PM. Likely in the first half hour.
So tune in and pray to whom/whatever you pray to that Obama doesn’t conquer al Qaeda and that Jeb Bush doesn’t announce his candidacy so that Joe doesn’t get bumped this time.
As for the topic… oh, dear Kentucky, you’ll just have to wait and see like the rest of America.
As discussed yesterday, Mitch McConnell and Kentucky’s Republican Delegation are dead-set on blocking Obama’s jobs plan with the single goal of seeing Barack Obama fail.
If America fails along the way… who cares?
And if the bridges into Kentucky fail… who cares.
Here’s what one Republican House aide said over the weekend:
“Obama is on the ropes; why do we appear ready to hand him a win?”
Anyway… Kentucky’s crumbling bridges (and the rest of the nation’s crumbling bridges) and the Republican Party’s obstinant opposition to this really simple idea (bridges should not collapse) caught the attention of Rachel Maddow last night:
Rand’s Law appears to be catching on in GOPland these days. Here’s Rachel from Friday, showing how Rand says that quoting him in context is the dishonest work of his internet enemies who want the government to break into his house at night, install a communist toilet, and enslave him:
Rachel Maddow had the night off, so she sent in the Wolff.
And the Wolff brought dragons. And a shout out. And God looked upon them, and it was good:
Ken Ham better order some more Dragon Excavation Kits…
And a few more of these:
First Jim Gray gets a shout out fromPerez Hilton (my biggest chuckle of the day), now he gets one from Rachel Maddow. Our awesome new mayor is quickly becoming a national star.
I’ll have the video once it’s up.
Whatchu got Louisville? River wha? River who?
