Campaign reminiscent of Kipling story

Rudyard Kipling’s 1888 story “The Man Who Would Be King” was made into an excellent movie in 1975 starring Sean Connery as the man who lied and cheated his way in a foreign land until the locals declared him a king and a god. He let his “power” go to his head and his subjects then removed him as well as his head.

The Democrat running for Senate against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is liberal pro-abortionist Amy McGrath who I believe is trying to lie and cheat her way in an attempt to become a U.S. senator and the new “Queen” of Kentucky Democrats.

There are many big problems for Amy. Her potential subjects are voters of Kentucky who we hope have their eyes and ears wide open to the truth and will never accept her distortions of the factual record of accomplishments and contributions to Kentucky and the nation by Sen. McConnell. Her chicanery may not cause her to lose her head, but it will end in her political demise. I believe Amy just does not have the Kentucky values to be a U.S. senator. Mitch does.

Before closing I also will note that I have recently seen a new ad for Amy that talks about her faith. It’s amazing that all the candidates claim to be people of faith. What does that really mean? Faith in what?
