The Revenge of Aqua Buddha

Democratic candidate Jack Conway looked like he was gaining ground on Republican Rand Paul in the Kentucky senate race, but then he launched a controversial ad attacking Paul for being disrespectful of Christianity by invoking the name of Aqua Buddha — a reference to a bizarre college prank involving Paul, though the exact details are in dispute. The ad drew widespread criticism, even among liberal commentators. Our own Jim Antle wrote about the issue here.

Today, a pair of polls suggest that Conway’s infamous Aqua Buddha ad has backfired, with Paul now opening up a lead of 7 points in one and 13 points in another.

If we learn one thing from the 2010 elections, it’s don’t mess with Aqua Buddha.
