Tully's description of Waterman pretty much sums up what a goof this man is:
Let's start with Waterman, a former Southern Indiana sheriff known for wearing camouflage suits, raging about "homosexuals" and mumbling almost incoherently. Standing in front of a home on Indianapolis' Northside on Tuesday, Waterman wore a short-sleeve shirt, a clip-on tie and a confused expression.
The lawmaker announced he would be running as a member of the Taxpayers Party, a protest group that is the brainchild of attorney John Price, who tried to lure other conservative Republican senators into the race before settling on Waterman.
Waterman didn't say much, other than briefly criticizing property taxes and ISTEP, and complaining that fellow Republican Gov. Mitch Daniels' office did not cater enough to him. "I would have a lot better open-door policy to legislators," Waterman said as a neighborhood cat plopped down on the sidewalk by his feet.
As for Elrod, Tully sees his decision as nothing more than the "opportunistic" politician who is "desperately seeking whatever office he can win." Contradicting himself, Tully says Elrod's decision was "a smart political move." Yet, he says the Democrats "mockery" of Elrod is "fair." Tully seems to forget, or perhaps he simply doesn't know, that Elrod's opponent, Mary Ann Sullivan, is now seeking her second public office in just the past ten months. She ran for the vacant city-county council seat of Patrice Abduallah, losing to Andre Carson and finishing third with just two votes. She had also already started laying the groundwork to run for state representative, even before she sought the vacant council seat. I also don't recall Tully knocking Carson after he picked up and ran for Congress just months after being appointed to the council and before he was even sworn in for a full term after winning election unopposed.
