"I'm From Louisville"

A good friend and avid reader of Advance Indiana informs us of an encounter he had tonight with 7th District Democratic congressional candidate Kris Kiser and his partner, Daryl Johnson, in Greg's Our Place, a popular gay bar in Indianapolis. When he handed Kris and Daryl a handbill in the bar for the Pride of Indy Band & Color Guard concert scheduled this Sunday, March 12, 2006, at 4:00 p.m. at the Broadway United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, the two responded, "We're from Louisville."

Of course, our good friend already knew who they were when he approached them and couldn't help but think, "Why would an openly gay candidate for Congress in Indianapolis tell him he was from Louisville?" Wouldn't it have made more sense for the man to have said, "Hi, my name is Kris Kiser, and I'm running for Congress against Julia Carson?" Well, then again, nothing makes much sense about his campaign, so we guess it should come as no surprise.
