And why should he do that?

Is it that time of year already?

Here's the executive summary for you busy readers out there. Don't do this with polls. It's not the sort of thing they measure. Done right, a public opinion poll is a valid, reliable way of drawing conclusions about public opinion, but it's an awful instrument for trying to figure out who or what should be feared by whom in a situation that, should it come to pass, is a year or more off anyway.

While we're at it:

Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear appears to have a stronghold on his party's nomination as he prepares to seek re-election next year, but at least one Republican looms as a formidable potential challenger.

OK, maybe he does. Maybe he and his merry men have a secret fastness someplace in Harlan where the sun goes down about three in the day, whence they sally forth to rob and pillage. Or maybe you meant a "strong hold."

They even sing songs about it:

They say in Harlan County
There are no neutrals here;
You're either for the GOP
Or a thug for Steve Beshear.

Or something like that.
