In his “Damn the Torpedoes” column published Wednesday, Mobile, AL weekly newspaper Lagniappe co-publisher and managing editor Rob Holbert excoriated Sen. Luther Strange (R-AL) and the Senate Leadership Fund for their effort to brand Strange as something other than a creature of the “swamp.” According to Holbert, such an endeavor demonstrated a low regard for Alabamians. “If there’s one thing Luther and the Senate Leadership Fund have made clear, it’s that they truly believe the people of this state are idiots,” he wrote.
