Mississippi Democratic Party chairman Rickey Cole spared no harsh words for former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour in a Facebook post late Thursday evening, comparing the GOP establishment titan at the center of the effort to re-elect Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) to a pig who’s used the U.S. treasury as his own piggy bank.
“Genteel old Thad Cochran is Haley Barbour’s puppet,” Cole said in the Facebook posting. “Haley Barbour is an insatiably greedy hog who has spent his entire life using the federal and state governments as his personal ATM machine. His cronies brag that Boss Hogg Haley ‘owns’ Mississippi. Again, let me get really plain with you: a fat, greedy, unprincipled old boar hog has rooted up our crops in Mississippi far too long. My mission in life is to catch that big fat boar, cut him and fry him out for lard. If you can show me how to do that without getting a little dirty, then you know a lot more about hogs and mud than I do.”
