Election day is fast approaching and in addition to voting in a very boring gubernatorial race, we Kentuckians will elect a new Attorney General.
During his time in the state house, Stan Lee (who is running for the post) has proposed legislation to deny domestic partner benefits at all Kentucky Universities, petitioned to remove all books in languages other than English from public libraries, and holds up the "traditional family values" our Religious Right is so fond of touting.
I will not vote for Stan Lee in November. In fact, I will thoroughly enjoy pushing the button for, er, the guy who's running against him.
Name recognition is HUGE. Last night, Roy and I hung out with our friends Jenny and Richard and not one of us informed voters could come up with his name! The AG last poll I saw had 30% undecided in this race. When they go to vote in November, whose name will they recognize? The man who's been a vocal member of the House for the last 20 years.
Ladies and Gentlemen of Kentucky, repeat after me:
Bring him up in casual conversation, such as...
"I was watching the news the other night and did you know that JACK CONWAY is running for Attorney General?"
"You know, the name JACK CONWAY sounds so much like Jack Bauer from '24'."
I think that any time you can associate Jack Conway with Jack Bauer, the better.
