"Dan Coats, the District of Columbia lobbyist who has lived in Virginia for ten years, but who really wants to be a North Carolinian, and was recruited by a Texan, is now hiring Kentuckians to get signatures from Hoosiers to get on the ballot in Indiana. Whew."
-- A clip from The Dan Coats Belly Flop, a new blog that has sprung up around former Republican Indiana Senator Dan Coats' announcement that he will challenge Evan Bayh (D) in the next election. Coats has lived in Virginia since losing his seat and has been caught on tape talking about how much he wanted to live in North Carolina instead of Indiana. (Hat tip to BlueIndiana)
