Tennessee political ad compares candidate to Lane Kiffin

Not favorably, of course.

Tennessee fans didn't take kindly to head coach Lane Kiffin's abrupt departure in 2010 for USC, and a Tennessee PAC played that up to attack an opposing candidate:

Kiffin bailed on the Volunteers after just one season, and fans will have that in mind when he makes his first return to Knoxville this weekend as Alabama offensive coordinator.

I know nothing about Rep. Gloria Johnson, but regardless of the ad's accuracy, I reckon comparing a politician to Kiffin while he's coming back to town is a clever strategy.
