No Barrel of Laughs
Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy, who is running against Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu in Louisiana, is now calling her out for having assisted a man doing a keg stand outside a Louisiana State University game on Saturday.
Citing his work as a doctor and his role as a parent, the GOP congressman Wednesday said "keg stands" and other binge-drinking activities should be discouraged. He said: "It's not something to celebrate." [AP]
On Monday, Landrieu dismissed any talk about the keg stand from her critics: "They need to get a sense of humor, and they need to get a life — it's just the way we roll."
Recent polls have shown Landrieu trailing Cassidy in her bid for re-election. Could this somehow become a major story to change the campaign? --Eric Kleefeld
