Tennessee screws the whore, leaves nothing by the bedside table

Standard

The horrifying specter of a Ford presidency is dead.  Barack Obama, the Safe Negro, can breathe easy again. Tennessee voters, enthralled by the wingnut hysteria and false religiosity of the religious right, overwhelmingly banned same-sex marriage and doomed Harold Whore, Jr’s. chances to play on the bigtime stage of the U.S. Senate as the Corporate Whore from Tennessee.  This defeat was not the result of racism and white supremacy, on the contrary, the last Democratic Candidate for U.S. Senate, Bob Clement, failed by the same 50,000 vote margin in 2002.  Congressman Bob Clement, the scion of the Tennessee dynasty that produced his father, a former Governor, failed to be elected to the Senate as well.

I looked at these numbers on Friday night and although I didn’t see where this victory was going to happen, I marveled at the effectiveness of the most expensive snow-job in Tennessee history put on by Memphis’s golden boy of corporate expediency.   His campaign Chairman, Democratic Congressman Lincoln Davis, worked his heart out for Harold but his people voted in record numbers for him, the governor(another evil democrat corporate whore), but not Harold.

What a damn shame.  I know what y’all think.  It’s like the story of the Omen I recounted earlier,Harold was stabbed in the back by a white chick, and the specter of miscegenation.  That is D.C. beltway B.S.   Harold lost this race because of the dynamics of Senate campaigns.  The reason he lost is because democrats didn’t field a credible challenger for this seat in 2000.  If Frist had been held to anything under 60%, this seat would have fallen to the Whore this year.

The D.C. Beltway pundits are now touting him for another Senate race against Lamar Alexander, the state’s senior Senator in 2008.   IT AIN’T GONNA HAPPEN.  If he does that, he’ll become a two-time loser.

Harold better find him a perch on K-Street as a lobbyist.  That’s where a high-class, corporate whore of his caliber belongs.  It’s time for Harold to find him some well-heeled Johns to screw so he can stop waisting his time prostituting himself for people who can’t appreciate his talent. Perhaps he can become a cabinet secretary in the next administration of DLC triangulators. 

This is what happens when the Congressional Black Caucus favors a corporate whore over Kweisi Mfume with campaign cash and campaign help

    Harold is one of the most impressive retail politicians I’ve ever seen, but getting elected statewide in the next four years is not going to happen unless some catastrophic scandal for the GOP changes the landscape.

    J: Skeptical Brotha is right on this one. Unless Lamar Alexander is a serial killer, or Bob Corker dies in the next 2 years, there is no way and please forgive, that those “good ole boys” in Tennessee will send him to the Senate!

  3. Being that I live in Memphis, TN, I must say that the Harold Ford Jr./Corker race was full of untamed madness.

    I voted for Harold, and even though he lost, I know that this is not the end of his career in politics. He is a very impressive young man, and I would have loved to see him take the Senate Seat. But many people in the south are still so racist and love to talk about all of their fake morals, that Corker was bound to win.

  4. myvoiceinfinite – if you think the South is more racist than anywhere else in the country, you haven’t been anywhere else. Racisim is alive and well everywhere. Probably will be until we’re all brown.

    Let’s remember Harold Ford was only 3% short. A lot of people
    didn’t know him prior to the campaign, but he still had a good lead
    during October. Knowing he was a black man from the beginning,
    I don’t think it was a racial thing. I think it was the lies coming from
    the Corker camp that defeated Ford. Corker said he didn’t solicit
    votes via phone, but I averaged 4 each day during the last 2 wks.
    They told me we would lose jobs and Ford wouldn’t protect us
    from terrorists. I received about 3 Corker mailings per day.
    They carpetbombed voters with negative scare tactics. Ford
    took the high road and had a christian attitude of forgiveness.
    I believe in Harold Ford Jr. and good will always win over evil.

  6. Gena,

    It’s good that Ford is able to inspire voters like you to vote for him. Your good will and support bode well for him in the future. As for me, I was done with him when he voted to repeal estate taxes for the richest among us and when he voted for the Iraq War.
