Connolly Sticks (Pigs) Foot in Mouth

Hat tip: Campaign Spot at National Review Online

The freshman Congressman, as quoted by the Washington Post:
"I want to be there with all four paws and snout in the trough."

The imagery is certainly, er, amusing, to say the least. A reader pointed out to NRO that pigs, like other mammalian farm animals, have hooves, not paws. You have to wonder if the bacon Connolly is trying to bring home is somehow radioactive.

Then again, we all knew that there was something not quite kosher about the guy.
