He’s no Ted Turner and his mother is not Hanoi Jane.

That’s the message that Teddy Turner, one of CNN mogul Ted Turner’s five children, is trying to get across in a crowded field of conservative candidates for South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District.

He’s anti-tax, opposes same-sex marriage and questions global warming. And he’s not, definitely not, Jane Fonda’s son.

“Yes, I’m Teddy Turner. You can’t pick your parents,” he introduced himself to a Republican gathering at Hilton Head Island recently, Politico reports.

He’s been trash-talking is father a lot to prove his message to the ultra-conservative constituents of his district.

In Beaufort, Turner joked that he ribbed his father at Thanksgiving for his liberal environmental views — calling him a hypocrite for driving a green car only to jet around the country on his CO2-spewing private plane.

SNIP:  Yeah, I couldn’t believe it either. I had to read it twice.

    “Trust but verify”, but in this case, Why take a Chance ?

    Thanks Teddy, we’ve hated your daddy for years.

    When you skull-fuck your fathers’ head wounds with Fondas’ femur and ulna we’ll maybe, maybe, start to believe you.

    Trash-talking your father does not win conservative hearts, even if daddy is a dead-brained liberal. And it would not surprise me at all if Ted Sr. were to pull a George Soros and finance Junior’s opposition Patrick Murphy style.

    South Carolina can do better.

    “…When you skull-fuck your fathers’ head wounds with Fondas’ femur and ulna we’ll maybe, maybe, start to believe you. …”

    In the words of the immortal Lloyd Christmas “..So you’re saying there’s a chance…..”
