who Kentucky voters just let be elected. I said it: "Just let be elected." Either Democrats stayed home, or people voted based on grievances about partisan shit that has nothing to do with their actual needs. And I kind of thought they might. See when Allison Lundergan Grimes lost to Mitch McConnell, whose entire raison d'etre in the Senate was obstruction, I started to get it. Dems don't run as Dems in Southern states because it freaks them out, and voters vote Red because the Republicans get the right sweet nothings spoken into their ears.
When people start losing their health-care access, maybe they might care a little less whether Bevin had Kim Davis' back. But will they remember it come next election? Shit. That is one the KY Democratic Party has to sort out. You either deliver a message that this party does the shit for voters, or you stop being an effective party.
The polls were close. The difference is turnout and turnout is work. But people live with bad government without that work
