FIRING THE FIRST SHOT
MEET THE CONTENDERS FOR BILL FRIST'S SENATE SEAT
According to the Tennessee Chattanoogan, Rep. Harold Ford, Jr. fired the first shot at his Senate competitors, in tying them to the ever growing scandal of Jack Abramoff.
Unfortunately, he didn't expect they would SHOOT BACK.
I think some Democrats are going to go down in this scandal, too, but as long as for every Democrat that goes down, that 10 corrupt Rethugs go down, I'll settle for the loss of DLC-type Democrats.
Why do I say DLC-type Democrats? Cause, more than likely, they were feeding at the corporate trough, instead of standing up for the core values of the Democratic Party.
I said in an earlier blog that Harold Ford needed to take up his own gauntlets he throws down in an effort to look like a tough politician. It's like Popeye trying to whip Bluto's butt without eating his spinach first. From where I sit, this race is only going to get uglier for Ford, and it's not even the end of January yet.
