The "Gay Issue" to Governor Fletcher and the Kentucky GOP

According to today’s Herald Leader, the Republican Party of Kentucky and soon to be ex-Governor Fletcher called tens of thousands of voters since Friday asking them whether they "want a governor who'd like Kentucky to be another San Francisco."

But, that’s not all:

Then, last night, Fletcher's lieutenant governor candidate Robbie Rudolph echoed that to a crowd of more than 200 GOP faithful in Lexington. "Do you want a couple of San Francisco treats or do you want a governor?" he asked.

Senate President David Williams, R-Burkesville, called it Rudolph's "Rice-a-Roni speech."

I take genuine offense to the comments made by the Republican Party of Kentucky, Governor Fletcher, and running "mate." Their comments prove their hatred of homosexuals, and that they have no intention of allowing a “fair and equal Kentucky” so long as they are in office.

The Republicans, along with Fletcher, are at Battle Stations right now, with all hands on deck using buckets to pitch water out of a ship that is submerged.

We don’t want it to be like San Francisco here; just fair. We also want someone running the commonwealth who hasn’t been indicted, doesn’t think he’s above the law, and doesn’t flip-flop on issues.

I didn't vote for Ernie Fletcher before, & I won't tomorrow! I can't believe the people of KY actually tolerate this so-called leader. Sad thing is, most registered voters won't even go to the poll, then they'll sit back & whine about it if Fletcher is re-elected! Check out the turnout statistics here: it's so sad that LESS THAN 50% of REGISTERED VOTERS even cast their vote. If you don't vote, then you don't have the right to complain!!!

Fletcher's an idiot. It's so obvious that the power of his 'governer' title has gone to his head. I personally was annoyed by receiving a letter from his office saying that my opinion on the previous issue of marriage didn't matter because over all he had the deciding factor. What a bunch of BS. He WILL be voted out of office! even on issues outside of this he fails as a governer and it's time for him to go.
