Politically Astute Quote of the Week

Sean Braisted expressed exactly my sentiments about recent Republican commercials against Senate candidate Harold Ford, Jr., but did so much more effectively than I could have:
I wish it were true, I wish Ford were a Liberal, unfortunately, he isn't. Is he the most liberal member of the Tennessee Delegation? Perhaps, but that is like trying to figure out who the blackest member of the Beatles is.
When It comes to voting for Ford, I intend to be a Yellow Dog Democrat and hold my nose and punch the screen next to his name; but he is most definitely not a liberal.

  1. I am right there with you. I don't have to like it, but it is a vote that is larger than Ford.
