This year’s election has to be the best argument yet for making the Secretary of Agriculture an appointed office in Kentucky.
Your choice is simple the incumbent, who can dribble a basketball or the challenger that just dribbles.
Richie Farmer might be a nice guy to have a beer with, but he would have been a disaster if he had shown up to work enough times to do anything. He won his primary but using the same thing that makes him successful as Agriculture Commissioner. He didn’t show up.
The challenger is David Lynn Williams. The rest of the Democratic ticket (notice who doesn’t have a picture) would just as soon Williams disappeared. A perennial candidate and sometimes Republican, Williams was charged earlier this year with menacing, disorderly conduct and harassment.
The truly funny part of this is that Farmer could quite possibly be the only Kentucky Republican holding a constitutional office after this election.
