Senator Cornyn: One Tough Hombre

Burnt Orange Report brings us the ad Senator Cornyn aired at the GOP convention. It's set to the tune of Big Bad John. It's hysterical.

The Austin-American Statesman claims Cornyn was in on the joke.

"My staff convinced me it was a good idea,” Cornyn said. “Maybe I need a new staff."

Maybe someone forgot to remind Cornyn's staff that in the Jimmy Dean version of the song, John was buried in the bottom of a worthless pit. It seems an apt metaphor for someone who will soon be consigned to the dustbin of history.

Texas needs a senator who doesn't need Hollywood production values to show he's tough. Texas needs Rick Noriega.
