Dennis Parrett A Democrat, I Don't Think So!

Remember the 2006 election when many of us in Kentucky's 2nd Congressional District were fighting to get the Democratic candidate Mike Weaver elected and unseat ultra conservative Congressman Ron Lewis?
Well guess who was working against us?  Dennis Parrett! Dennis Parrett was giving money to Republican Congressman Ron Lewis to the tune of $1,000

Mr, Parrett an avowed conservative, but not so conservative when it comes to government hand outs wants real Democrats to support him in his campaign for Kentucky Senate District 10. Really! Not this Democrat.

Hillbilly :: Dennis Parrett A Democrat, I Don't Think So!

What this boils down to is two Republicans running for the same seat, leaving Democrats with no real choice.
Of course we have the same good ol' boys showing their support for Mr. Parrett.

Hardin County News Enterprise
State Rep. Jimmie Lee, D-Elizabethtown said the 10th District race will have profound effects on Hardin County as well as other areas of the state. Republicans have a six seat majority in the Senate.
Lee said the crowd that attended Parrett’s announcement — it included state Sen. David Boswell, former Gov. Julian Carroll and former U.S. Sen. Walter “Dee” Huddleston — showed how important the race is.

Does the Kentucky Democratic party have Alzheimer's? Does the Kentucky and or the Hardin County Democratic really expect real Democrats to knock on doors for a man that that is an avowed conservative and according to my sources had a Republican campaign sign in his front yard during the 2006 election?
I feel the Hardin County Democratic Party and the Kentucky Democratic Party needs to do some soul searching. So my question for Hardin County Democratic Party and the Kentucky Democratic Party is the same question asked by Florence Reece in 1931. "Which Side Are You On?"

Update May 23, 2010

I have no reason to believe that Dennis is not a honest man and when he says that Julian Carroll did not recruit him, I'll take Dennis at his word, but Julian Carroll did say that at an event I attended and I have video footage to prove it. The following is an email I received from Dennis Parrett May 18, 2010:

Dennis Parrett's Response:

Mr Pence: Thank you for taking the time to talk with me the other night. I have
always respected your opinion , and feel that we share many of the same ideas and values.
As for our discussion about my desire to run for state senator, I had been planning to run for state senator for some time now. My wife Lisa and I had several discussions about this over the last several years, and she had expressed
her wishes that I wait until our 3 daughters got a little older . Our business was still growing rapidly and I put a lot of hours in every week, at work, on our farm
and in community activities. Respecting her wishes, I chose to wait. We both felt that now the time was right to run for 10th District Ky State Senator. Although I had been encouraged over the years  by others to run for political office , I was never recruited by anyone, nor would  I  have let myself be. The mention of Gov Julian Carroll recruiting me did not happen. The first time I met Gov Carroll was the morning of my announcement on August 6th,2009 at Pritchard Community Center in Elizabethown. I have talked numerous times with Gov Carroll since that time and welcome his advice and wisdom.
If the voters of Hardin and Jefferson Cos will allow, I look forward to serving as the 10th District Democratic State Senator. I believe in Common Sense leadership, a more efficient government , creating jobs, advancing education, the care of our senior citizens, helping those less fortunate that cannot help themselves, in God and our country and the defense of it, in our military and delivering the benefits to our retired military and veterans that we promised them,
in good "old -fashioned" family values and not spending money we don't have. I will also devote the same dedication and energy to being your State Senator that I have to every thing I have done.
Thank you again for your time.
Dennis Parrett

I'd (4.00 / 2)
have to say ... looks like 'nother Republican't suckin' at the public teat.

And a member of the Senate, sittin' on the Dem's side.

Its a Shame (4.00 / 1)
As you well know we face the same things over here in the Western part of the state. 63% registered Democrats and we cannot win elections. It is sad.

Questions or comments??

63%? Could be a lot of them are Heritage Democrats (4.00 / 1)
A goodly number of them are probably registered Democrats because their great great whatever father's signed up and fought for the Confederacy. One of my Sunday School teachers told me it caused him Great Pain to go and re-register as a Republican once he realized that "down was really up" and that "the Communists have taken over my beloved (Democratic) party". My dad called them "Heritage Democrats". Well, truth is he had another term for them, too, but he couldn't use it in front of my mother so I won't repeat it here.

When I saw Mongiardo winning those traditionally republican eastern KY counties, and watched the vote count go in the opposite direction in Western KY, I remembered that, and was sad and frustrated.
