Cornholing Brad Ellsworth

Posted: Updated:

And here I said Indiana Congressman and Senate hopeful Brad Ellsworth wasn't gay-friendly. My mistake. Apparently if you put a few beers in him, he's down with some cornholing. (Clickety to embiggen)


In related news, local CBS reporter Jim Shella is reporting that a pollster thinks "Ellsworth is viewed as a liberal by most voters." I don't know what planet that pollster lives on but most "liberals" don't want anything to do with the conservative Democrat. He's got so little support among Dems that an elderly Senator turned lobbyist who's said he'd rather live in North Carolina is trouncing him soundly in the polls.

Maybe that's why Ellsworth is running as a sheriff seeking office instead of his record as a Congressman. The Dems don't like his conservative record while the right will never vote for him over an actual Republican. Damn shame he lied about how long he had the job; that just made him the laughingstock of network news and Hoosier voters.
