Harold Ford Jr: The Most Dangerous Democrat
Now that Joseph Lieberman is out of the picture, I think we should focus on The Most Dangerous Democratic Candidate for the U.S.. Senate--Harold Ford jr.
Here is an excerpt from a TIME magazine article, sent out on the Harold Ford Jr. campaign email list:
Why Harold Ford Has a Shot
THE G.O.P.'S WEAKNESS CREATES A CHANCE IN THE TENNESSEE SENATE RACE FOR A CERTAIN KIND OF DEMOCRAT
By KAREN TUMULTY, PERRY BACON JR.
The Congressman who is running to replace retiring Bill Frist as Senator from Tennessee has voted to outlaw gay marriage and to repeal the estate tax, and wants to amend the Constitution to ban flag burning. He supports getting rid of the handgun ban in the nation's capital and says the Ten Commandments should be posted in courtrooms around his state. He favors school prayer, argues that more troops should have been sent to Iraq and wants to seal the border with Mexico. He likes to tell a story about the time he campaigned at a bar called the Little Rebel, which had a Confederate flag and a parking lot full of pickup trucks adorned with National Rifle Association bumper stickers. When he went inside, as he tells it, a woman at the bar greeted him with a hug and exclaimed,
"Baby, we've been waiting to see you!" ...
There you have it...Harold Ford Jr. is actually campaigning as a conservative Republican. I'm astonished at the number of gay and progressive Democrats who say they are going to reward this bastard with their vote in November. It should be imperative for progressives who seek to move the Democratic Party back to the left to stop this dangerous politician now. He will do or say anything for political power. It would be a major setback for the struggle for social justice, separation of church and state, economic justice and equal rights to reward this kind of politician with a place in the U.S. Senate.
STOP HAROLD FORD JR.
