High standard campaigning from Alabama from a football coach turned "outsider" politician, who makes one wish for the return of Jeff Sessions. Sadly, this isn't particularly unusual.
In a campaign ad for Alabama Republican Tommy Tuberville, a woman speaks into the camera to attack Democratic Sen. Doug Jones over abortion.

The self-described "proud pro-life mother of two" says she regrets getting an abortion after an unexpected pregnancy at age 18.

"I asked God for forgiveness, and Doug Jones should do the same," she adds. "Jones has voted to spend our tax dollars on late-term abortions. He’s so extreme, he supports abortion up until birth."

Both parts of the attack are wrong.

Here's Turberville showing you he doesn't even get football right.

It’s not states or their governors that are deciding whether college football will be played this fall. It’s the colleges or the athletic conferences that they belong to, each of which spans multiple states. And Tuberville’s figures are off, too.

This happened in Veep when Selena’s trounced on the stump by an ex-football coach. Who soaks up the applause for his cliches about playing the ball and its one strike and out if you’re on my team.
