A “JESUS-LOVING GUN-SUPPORTING” SENATOR from Tennessee! I was talking to one of my colleagues about Harold Ford’s run to the right, and he said he’d vote for Ford in spite of his disapproval of Ford’s opposition to gay marriage, support for posting the ten commandments, hard stance on immigration, etc. Anything’s worth it, he decided, to get a Democratic Congress. Ford’s strategy is obviously to hope that a lot of left-leaning Democrats feel that way, while pulling in people who would otherwise vote Republican. It could work.

But what do the Dems do if they win?

UPDATE: Heh: “Afterwards, we hear tell he went a’swimmin’ with Ellie Mae and Jethro in the cement pond.”
