08/10/2005: Time to rethink my position?
Jeff, a frequent commenter at The Flypaper Theory, has a great comment to one of The Pesky Fly's posts about Roz Kurita's quest to earn the Democratic nomination to run for Bill "Cat-Killer" Frist's Senate seat here in Tennessee. And what Jeff has to say makes me wonder if I should hold my nose and vote for Harold Ford, Jr., anyway:
Look, if Kurita beats Junior, what will he do? He's got no job skills, he's never had a J-O-B. He has to win or it's join the ranks of the permanently unemployed. Maybe he can get a place in the Army. I hear you can train for just about any skill. He could be a tow-missile gunner, or something useful like that.Mayor Harold Ford, Jr. I wonder if that'd drive Mr. Mike crazy? ;-)
That's why I'm voting for Ford. So he doesn't come home and run for mayor.
[Nope. Ain't gonna do it. I may live to regret it, but I can't overcome the waves of nausea that come over me when I think the concept "Len Cleavelin voting for Harold Ford, Jr." By Gawd, I swore a solemn vow I'd never vote for Ford for any office, and by Gawd, that is a vow that I shall keep til the last breath leaves my body.]
