It’s All Good

From the Louisville Courier-Journal:

It’s good that former U.S. Rep. Anne Northup got into the Republican gubernatorial primary. The GOP faithful will have a chance to decide whether they believe Gov. Ernie Fletcher’s claims that: 1) he’s the party’s best bet for holding the governor’s office, 2) he’s the best choice for those who want competence in the governor’s office, 3) he’s earned the thanks and support of his fellow Republicans.

It’s good that Paducah businessman Billy Harper will offer another, well-financed Republican voice, given his special interest in, and insight into, education. There is no more important issue for the voters of this state, and its biggest city.

It’s too bad neither U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler nor Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson would brace up to the Democratic race. In their absence, their party’s primary could turn into a Charge of the Lite Brigade. We hope not.

It’s good the Courier-Journal penned this editorial. As for their opinions… Governor Fletcher is not our best bet, he’s obviously not the best competence choice, and his hiring scandal lost him the support of his fellow Republicans. As for their charge this primary is a charge of the Lite Brigade, have they seen the Democratic contenders?
