Your 13th House District Democratic state Rep. Gloria Johnson was the subject of an ad that compared her to Lane Kiffin – the heartbreaker, failer-upperer and former UT football coach who left in the cover of night.
According to Georgiana Vines, quoting Johnson, the ad supporting Eddie looks a whole lot like one from a couple years back when Johnson ran in 2012. (A touch of irony on prior accusations of plagiarism could be worth noting here.)
When sports intersects with politics, it usually ends up being ridiculous.
Meanwhile, John Adams riffed on the possible political, business and parenting uses for invoking Kiffin.
And then there’s the other unprintable stuff, NSFW category for Kiffin:
Comic Bill Burr rips into Lane Kiffin and gives h/t to Knoxville in his Sept. 1 podcast. If you’re into comics and don’t mind hearing the language, worth a listen. Roll up to the 9:20 mark for the Kiffin-UT-Alabama-SEC stuff.
And if you’ve just crawled out from a pink marble slab here in East Tennessee, here’s what Kiffin-haters have been enjoying, Kiffin’s Krimson Korner, on Tosh.0. Also NSFW.
