BIPPS vs. Beshear

Jim Waters of the Bluegrass Institute for Public Policy Solutions (BIPPS) takes a different angle in messing with Steve Beshear's advocacy of expanding gaming in the Kentucky gubernatorial race.

The intro covers the thesis (and the rest of the piece illustrates the point with a fictitious conversation):

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Steve Beshear’s view of expanded gambling reminds me of a lonely lady who relies on an overdose of makeup rather than her ability to engage a man with the real “her.”

Beshear just keeps laying it on thick about the gambling – while at the same time stressing the need for “new leadership” and “new ideas.”

His is a well-worn canard which presumes that Frankfort needs more money to spend its way out of the troubles it has created.

Of course, it makes for an easier campaign. It requires neither new ideas nor new leadership. It’s the people who have to change the constitution to expand gambling – a crap shoot, at best.
