4.0 out of 5 stars Politics as (Un)Usual, September 28, 2006
This review is from: The Unbridled World of Ernie Fletcher: Reflections on Kentucky's Governor (Hardcover)
You don't have to live in Kentucky or be knowledgeable about Kentucky politics to enjoy the humor in this quick, easy read. McNay has a wide target in Gov. Fletcher, and he hits the bulls-eye every time. If you live in any jurisdiction with a clueless politician who tries to buck the system and ends up "bucking" himself, you will love this book.

C. D. Shafer says:
Having met Governor Fletcher many years ago, and having maintained some level of contact between, I believe the reviewer is short-sighted in calling Fletcher, "a clueless politician." The problem was that he was not clueless, but neither was he a politician. He had no intention of "bucking the system", beyond what is required to bring down run-away spending, state deficits and "insider-trading on government contracts. If Governor Ernie Fletcher made a mistake, it was to underestimate the power of the Union Machine, which is a maggot slowly gnawing the growth of the private sector, leaving no one, (except the dwindling 'private sector') to generate funds to feed this hypocritical Union Queen Bee. The worst that can be said of Gov. Ernie Fletcher is that he had confidence in the common man of Kentucky to do "what was right." When Kentucky could not hold their end of the deal, Fletcher's proposals became moot points.
