Granted the life-long legislator is not used to running opposed, but I can't remember a more shameless and unsophisticated trolling for favorable media coverage than State Sen. Mike Ellis' siding with Journal Communications in its spat with Time Warner.

Ellis even invokes the Green Bay Packers in the demands he makes on Time Warner. We rule Ellis out of order:
