If ‘Constitutional Clayton‘ wanted a smear video against Senator Thad Cochran, he didn’t need to illegally sneak into an assisted living facility, nor did he need to enlist the aid of a local Tea Party leader and a couple lackeys. All he really needed to do, as is all anyone needs to do when looking for something to use against a conservative, is let the man talk for a few minutes.
While Cochran opponent Chris McDaniels‘ supporters may have sneaked into the county courthouse where ballots were being kept in what was totally not an attempt to tamper with vote counts, Cochran admitted to something far more disturbing than yet another Republican demonstration of their expertise with voter fraud.
Why, yes–it is weird stuff with animals! Why do you ask?
While addressing a group of donors and supporters at Forrest General Hospital in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, the Senator attempted to kiss up by reminding everyone of his deep roots in the area. “I grew up coming down here for Christmas,” he said. “My father’s family was here. My mother’s family was from rural Hinds County in Utica.”
Of course, he could not resist telling tales of his boyhood–and at the top of his list, just behind picking up pecans, was…animal stuff. He said he enjoyed “picking up pecans, from that to all kinds of indecent things with animals.”
“And I know some of you know what that is,” Cochran concluded.
“The whole point of the story is not just coming here to visit cousins and get to know aunts and uncles better, you absorb the culture and you know what’s important to people here. I feel very comfortable here and have an identity with this area of the state that’s different than any other,” he said.
Cochran did not elaborate on what sort of “indecent things” he “did” with animals, but we must admit we are very curious.
