Williams Didn't Learn From Aqua Buddha

Not only did Conway's ad fail to help him in his race with Paul (it may have even made his loss worse) and was widely condemned -- but Conway's challenger in this year's attorney general race is trying to make the ad work against Conway a second time, by releasing his own ad. The spot hits Conway for "embarrassing Kentucky nationally" with the 2010 ad. Williams has already sought to clarify his remarks, issuing a statement saying, "To be clear, I very much support economic development and strongly believe in freedom of religion. What I cannot understand is why Governor Beshear has a long pattern of opposing outward displays of the Christian faith such as Christmas trees, prayers before high school football games, and posting the Ten Commandments but apparently has no problem personally participating in displays of non-Christian religions." Like Conway's ad, Williams' religion-based attack is unlikely to be the magic elixir that narrows the gap with Beshear.
