The video was covered by the Lexington Herald-Leader's Bluegrass Politics blog; the independent Page One Politics blog, which wrote: "This video makes me sick to my stomach and nervous and I can't figure out why."; and Barefoot and Progressive, which wrote, "Well I don't even know what to make of this."
