What is it with Republicans named Phil insulting the electorate?

We all remember right before the election when Gov.-elect Phil Bryant (R) said that if the Personhood Amendment failed, then "Satan wins." Of course, Personhood failed the following day 58%-42%.

Well, now presumed Speaker nominee Rep. Philip Gunn (R-Clinton) says the following with respect to Attorney General Jim Hood's (D) reelection:
"I really don't know what people were thinking," Gunn said. "I don't know why they would vote for him, to be honest."
That's quite a gutsy statement to make about someone who just won with 61% of the vote. It's also very insulting to the 30% of Republicans who voted for Hood this time around.  Rep. Gunn, maybe they think Jim Hood is a good Attorney General.  That's certainly an explanation, isn't it?

Maybe the answer is "because of the scumbag the GOP put up to run against him"?
