The daily Kos blogspot says that the Democrats are leading in the polls for the Kentucky-02, Kentucky-03, and Kentucky-04 U.S. House of Representatives contests. The pundits believe that the Kentucky people of the First Congressional District and the Fifth Congressional District will vote in favor of continued U.S. military occupation of Iraq, will vote in favor of illegal federal warrantless wiretaps, will vote in favor of torture, will vote against the $7.25 new Federal minimum wage law, and will vote in favor of reducing Federal aid to education by voting for the Republican candidates for Congress in their respective Districts. Appalachians deserve better that Republican representation. The residents of Appalachia should participate in the big Democratic victory that is coming next week. The Democratic Party has done much for the people of Appalachia, and the people of Eastern Kentucky should be on the Democratic bandwagon, as the Democrats return to control of Congress in November. It has been predicted that Arkansas will have a Democratic sweep at the Federal level this month. Let's have a Democratic sweep at the Federal level in Kentucky, also. Elect more Democrats!

"Democrats are leading in the polls in KY-02, KY-03, and KY-04.
"If this Southern state shocks the political world by delivering three House seats to the Democrats, it would turn the delegation from 5-1 Republican to 4-2 Democratic. Throw in Rep. Chandler's probable ascension to the Governorship next year, and we've got the makings of some good things down there.
"The battle for the South is already starting in places like Arkansas, Kentucky, and Virginia.

It would be too bad if there is a big Democratic victory next Tuesday, but the Kentucky First District and the Kentucky Fifth District remain mired with a representative from the Republican minority, pro-war, pro-illegal-wiretap, pro-torture, anti-minimum-wage-increase, and pro-reducing-Federal-aid-to-education, people that will have no influence in the new Democratic Congress.
