Republican Senate hopeful Marc Cenedella says that he takes "full responsibility" for the blog posts that were published under his name (including one calling for a national holiday celebrated with steak and blow jobs, and another parsing the question of "sexy vs. skanky"), but says he's not sure who authored them — there were apparently a number of authors blogging under his name. He does know who he wants to blame, though, for the blog posts coming to the attention of the media. “This is a smear attack by Kirsten Gillibrand, who obviously has an interest in keeping me out of the race,” he said. Totally skanky?
