That's funny.

Slightly related topic, my grandfather in Eastern Kentucky used to assure his election to county office by spreading booze around. The going rate was 1/2 pint of whisky per vote /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

From what I have heard first hand and read about it's past, Kentucky politics has a reputation exceeded only by Chicago and Louisiana /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif
