What a Corker!

Radley Balko‘s allegiances in the competition for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Bill Frist have shifted due to an unlikely event: the public revelation of a Facebook photo showing Julia Corker, daughter of Republican nominee Bob Corker, apparently making out with another young woman with some dopey looking frat guy kissing air in the background.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d say both candidates in the race are now trying to out-Hef each other.
