Fear and loathing in Lexington, the sad but true realities of Frankfort

In regards to this travesty that's left Lexington's 13th district without a Senator, here's the reality of the situation.

Had Beshear vetoed this legislation, this could have gone 1 of 2 sad ways.

1.  The Senate Republicans could have mustered an override.

2.  The House would have to had made major concessions to the Senate in a deal, and even then it's unclear how this would have washed out.  From what I'm hearing/reading the House redistricting was about 5 fold worse for the Republicans.

What an ugly game this is...  A culture of destruction.  Far easier to break each other strengths down than to build your own strengths up.
