How not to campaign in Kentucky

How not to campaign in Kentucky
Bob Farmer, Democratic candidate for Kentucky agriculture commissioner, on eastern Kentucky:
ěMy wife is from eastern Kentucky and itís altogether different over there. … Itís a different kind of place; itís a place where cars are on blocks and houses are on wheels. …
ěDo you know how come the FBI wonít do any work down in this county? No, why? Thatís because all of the DNAís alike and there ainít no dental records.î
He goes on to add that eastern Kentuckians donít trust him because he wears shoes and has all his teeth.
Heís right on one account ó eastern Kentuckians likely no longer trust him, but it probably has little to do with his footwear or dental hygiene. …
ó Owensboro (Ky.) Messenger-Inquirer
