The Senate decreed Tuesday that Kentucky is the college basketball capital of the world.
Kentucky’s Republican Senators — Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul — introduced a resolution that essentially declared the Bluegrass State the baller center of the universe. It states, and we may be paraphrasing here, Kentucky is the best, Kentucky is the greatest, we love Kentucky so much we’re going to marry it.
“Whereas Coach John Calipari and the University Kentucky Wildcats have brought pride and honor to the Commonwealth of Kentucky,” the preamble continues, “which is rightly known as the college basketball capital of the world.”
Take that, North Carolina, you home of the Duke Blue Devils and the University of North Carolina Tar Heels!
The Senate agreed to this resolution by unanimous consent. Perhaps North Carolina Sens. Richard Burr (R) and Kay Hagan (D) were indisposed?
