Kentucky Politics: Bombast, Burgoo & Bourbon

A presentation by

Berry Craig

Author & WKCTC History Professor

                          December  10 @ 7:00 p.m.

In the Library Meeting Room

 Time was, Kentucky politics was dominated by the three Bs—Bombast, Burgoo, and Bourbon. Craig begins this talk by examining each of these spicy ingredients in turn. He ends by relating a tale that combines all three and brings to mind the famous remark about Kentucky politics being “the damnedest.” After all, asks Craig, where else could a man running for governor drink too much, throw up in public, and still get elected?
