Joe B. Hall, Pitino, Fail In Kentucky Election

Memo to Democrats, especially in Kentucky:don't count on Joe B. Hall's campaigning to get you through. Just kidding - obviously there's a lot more to it than that, though we would never have encouraged Rick Pitino to campaign for a candidate, given the raw feelings over his taking the Louisville job. It was an interesting election because both sides tried to enlist basketball support from Kentucky, and that just unleashes a lot of raw passion.
