America, you count on Louisiana to bring you the most entertaining dirtbag politicians. Today we came through again: Rep. Vance McAllister, the Kissing Congressman, reversed course and is now running for re-election. Excerpt:
McAllister entered the American Legion carrying his three-year-old daughter and with his wife, Kelly, holding his arm.
She introduced McAllister to about 50 supporters, saying: “I’m so proud of my husband and our family and so thankful, too, more than anything.”
Using the wife and kids he betrayed as political props for a comeback nobody wants to see? That takes … character. Vance Romance is doing it, he says, for the people:
“Our family is stronger than ever, so I think the people should decide whether or not I continue to represent them.”
Yeah — for the people on the writing staff of The Daily Show.
