  • From the mouth of U.S. Senator Rand Paul: "With regard to the idea that you have a right to healthcare, you have to realize what that implies. It’s not an abstraction. I’m a physician. That means you have a right to come to my house and conscript me. It means you believe in slavery. It means that you’re not only going to enslave me, but the janitor in my hospital, the person who cleans my office, the assistants who work in my office, the nurses — if you have a right to their services, basically … you’re saying that you believe in slavery." [LEO Weekly]
  • "Gov. Steve Beshear used a state plane in April to take his family to the NCAA Final Four basketball tournament in Houston, but the state Democratic Party picked up the $6,105 tab for the flight. Since Beshear became governor in December 2008, he has made much use of state aircraft for political and non-governmental purposes — but not at state expense." [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "Attorney General Jack Conway accused Marathon Petroleum Co. LLC Friday of illegally raising the wholesale price of gasoline and other motor fuels in markets across the state during a time of emergency due to heavy rains." [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "Kentucky elections officials are predicting the second-lowest voter turnout for a primary in more than 10 years. Secretary of State Elaine Walker predicts 10% of voters will go to the polls today." [WFPL]
