Not sure why no Peach Pundit Front Pagers were invited, but Barnes gathered the media to show off his new calves and prove he really does own cows. Apparently some of you haters out there doubted the erstwhile Governor’s words. Shame on you.
“They will become our campaign mascots,” said Barnes, who explained his cattle are beef cows, not dairy cows. “It just kind of goes to show you how ridiculous some of theses attacks and questions have become.”
Brian Robinson, a spokesman for Republican candidate for governor Nathan Deal, commented on Barnes’ effort to, uh, beef up his campaign.
“We don’t question whether he has cows,” Robinson said. “We knew he was getting a lot of manure from somewhere.”
