Filling the coalfield airwaves

Bearing Drift has the latest on the attack ads in the 38th Senatorial District race.
Coal is a big part of the district. Telling voters the Democratic candidate is on the same side of anti-coal politicans doesn't make that side happy.
It’s also comical to see the BV crew get upset about an ad attacking Democrats for being anti-coal when they are the drum majors of the anti-coal parade.  The contempt for voters in Appalachia who keep voting for coal drips from the piece.  Talking down to the folks in Appalachia and telling them they just aren’t smart enough to know what’s good for them . . . well, that’s not exactly the best way to win hearts, minds or votes in coal country.  The last thing my people (my maternal family is all proudly in the 38th) want is being lectured to by Yankees.
