Rand Paul doesn’t know what his state’s biggest industry is.

December 5, 2012 - During a radio interview with WMAL, Senator Rand Paul made several disparaging remarks about Ashley Judd. One of these remarks revealed something I think is more important than the Senator’s anti-Judd views: Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) doesn’t know what Kentucky’s biggest industry is.

He says:

She hates our biggest industry, which is coal, so I say, good luck bringing the ‘I hate coal’ message to Kentucky.

Coal is not Kentucky’s biggest industry. It’s not even in the top 10.

Shouldn’t a Senator be embarrassed to make a mistake like this? And shouldn’t someone besides me be reporting it?
