WMAJrKY Posted July 27, 2015 Share Posted July 27, 2015 You disregard the pure contempt and hatred of both Louisville in general and the Democrat party in particular in most of rural Kentucky. Rescuing Kentucky Kingdom is a political move by Governor Beshear and his old pal and crony Bruce Lunsford...for many years a high Democrat official and one time opponent of Mitch McConnell. Nothing would make the other party happier than watching Lunsford (and Hart) and Louisville suffer. Not to mention the park itself has its own financial struggles--the Fairgrounds and fair are on a very short leash after last year's debacle--and Kentucky Kingdom got a great deal of the...credit (?)...for that. Make no mistake, the election is a key milestone for that park. I know we're not the same age and I don't believe we're from the same part of the state, either. But growing up 2 hours from Louisville I don't recall anyone "hating" Louisville (except for the Cards! Ha!) Democrats, yeah maybe. I'm from the land of Senator Ford though, and in my teens Kentucky sided with a Democrat governor from Arkansas, twice even! I know what you're saying though. Things get very different east of Lexington, and the days of a "Southern Democrat" are pretty much gone. November could be interesting. 3 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
