My Old Kentucky Home...

With 3/4 of the votes counted in KY, Mongiardo seems to be ahead. If he wins, that's fantastic for the Dems, but the downside is, this will be a very, very hard seat for a Democrat to hold: this really is something of a fluke. There's no doubt that the Republicans will come up with a significantly stronger candidate than Bunning next time around.

On the other hand, the fact that the Republicans were able to hold OK with a genuinely certifiable candidate, against a very strong Democratic candidate, shows that the Democratic party in that state might as well fold up its tent.

10:21 update: looks like Bunning may squeak it out. Bad news for America--this means that KY voters will be responsible for a substantial decline in the IQ of that august body, over what would have happened had they voted the other way...

Hey, a vote for 6 years is a vote. I'm sorry Senator Bunning didn't decide to retire. He did no one any favors by running for re-election.
