A Tea filled laugh riot in Frankfort

Aside from the revolts in the Middle East and the Democratic state legislators running for the borders to prevent session to begin there have been some funny developments in Frankfort.

Yesterday via HL:

FRANKFORT — Take Back Kentucky on Tuesday endorsed Republican gubernatorial candidate Phil Moffett — sort of.

Norm Davis, a member of the private property rights group, kicked off a press conference in the state Capitol by praising the conservative credentials of “Phil Harmon.” Unlike some politicians, “Mr. Harmon” takes the time to read materials and educate himself on important issues, Davis said.

“We need Phil Harmon,” Davis told a crowd of several dozen people. “I can’t think of anything we don’t agree on.”

David Adams’s campaign manager, finally approached Davis at the lectern and whispered in his ear.

“Oh, I’m sorry. Moffett!” Davis corrected himself. “He has a running mate named Harmon.”

State Rep. Mike Harmon, R-Danville, is Moffett’s running mate.

Moffett, a Louisville businessman, thanked Davis for the endorsement and called it “a big boost forward.”

Moffett went on to say that he disagreed with Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul’s call on Tuesday, before a state Senate committee, for a national constitutional convention to consider a balanced budget amendment. President Barack Obama and other Democratic leaders in Washington might repeal the Bill of Rights if given the chance to rewrite the Constitution, he said"

Read it again, that's right Democrats might consider repealing the Bill of Rights, ROTFLMAO!

But the laughs don't stop here. This happened just today at the capitol via HL:

FRANKFORT — At the urging of Republican U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, the state Senate approved a measure Tuesday urging Congress to convene a national constitutional convention that would consider a balanced budget amendment.
The vote was 22-16 along party lines except for Sen. Julie Denton, R-Louisville, who opposed the legislation.
In his nearly eight-minute speech to the Senate, Paul said the balanced budget amendment is necessary "to get our nation's fiscal house in order."
Paul, who ran last year on a pledge to seek a balanced budget amendment, said if federal spending is not limited, "within a decade the entire budget will be consumed between entitlements and interest. That means no money for roads, no money for education, no money for national defense."

Earlier in the day, Paul and Senate President David Williams, R-Burkesville, testified before the Senate State and Local Government Committee, which approved the resolution on a 7-3 vote.

Pay close attention because the Tea Party favorite Rand Paul is backing David Williams, a establishment Republican and effectively backhanding Phil Moffett the Tea Party favorite!

Oh and the hits just keep coming for these people...
