I read today 56% of Kentucky Appalachians are opposed to mountaintop removal. (2011 poll reported by James Bruggers in CJ) If that's the case, why are we still allowing it? Is it appease those 4-door Porsche-driving pricks who have the "Friend of Coal" plates in Louisville? If so, let's just stop.
That poll statistic may impact this 2014 senate race, yet some are spinning it dead backwards.
Joe Gerth, Rand Paul, and Dan Mongiardo are all saying Ashley Judd's achilles heel is her anti-mountaintop removal activism, but it's not at all. In fact, it's how she could /will win.
