Kentucky Kurmudgeon Denounces Governor

When you visit the Web site for Gov. Ernie Fletcher's re-election campaign, the main picture you see is one of several that rotate in the position. This is the picture that appeared when I visited the site today:

It jumped out at me for three reasons. First, featured very prominently at the right of the picture (on Fletcher's left) is House Minority Leader Jeff Hoover, who is the running mate of one of Fletcher's primary opponents, former U.S. Rep. Anne Northup. Second, if you look behind Fletcher, you will see Lt. Gov. Steve Pence, who bailed out as Fletcher's wing man long ago and who now endorses Northup. To the left of the picture (Fletcher's right) is former Personnel Cabinet Secretary Erwin Roberts, who has also endorsed Northup.

Now, I'm no pro at managing Web sites or political campaigns. But if I were running a campaign Web site, I don't think I would use a picture that features a member of an opposition ticket and the guy your campaign manager now refers to as "Brutus" to tout the theme: "When we work together, Kentucky Wins!"

No wonder fellow Republicans talk about Fletcher's "political ineptitude."
