As long as there are Baptist preachers and bootleggers, Ky will never be totally wet.

As a lifelong Baptist, we grew up with a generally overstated and often misunderstood dogma against alcohol and dancing. In one of those "politics often makes strange bedfellas" Kentucky history is full of elections where pastors and bootleggers would join forces to defeat votes to allow liquor sales. The phrase as become a part of Kentucky folklore.

Don't read too much into the phrase, but as the Temperance (non-alcohol) movement began to fade, the phrase became a model of political spin.

Most any of the dry counties.. if you just drive to the county line.. there are usually at least two or three outfits within one mile on the other side of that line who sell alcohol! I've never heard of anyone having a problem getting their "drink on".... just maybe not at your neighborhood market!
