Herschel and Werewolves and Vampires, Oh My

Tales from the GA campaign trail.

Look, people can sometimes find poor analogies when speaking in public as they try and make their points, but man, if I was in the fight of my political life, I think I might work a bit harder than this. On the other hand, he is more cogent here than when he tries to talk about policy.
