Chuck Todd of MSNBC had Craig James on today, and he happened to catch the gay-baitin', 2 percent-pollin', infomercial-makin' U.S. Senate candidate from Texas in a lie about Mike Leach, which is lots of fun. Here's the Dallas Morning News to explain:

On Wednesday, James told MSNBC's Chuck Todd: "We didn't hire a PR firm." But when Todd pressed the issue, noting that James had indeed hired Spaeth Communications, James acknowledged that he had. "There are PR firms for what I needed," he said. "We needed somebody who could represent us."

Only 13 more days till James will need somebody to hire him.
