I guess I don't see the problem with a man going to a Playboy party of some kind. What man here has not read Playboy magazine?

I'd rather he went there than to some bath house somewhere.

Key passage:

"I was there," the Memphis Democrat said. "I like football, and I like girls. I don't have … no apologies for that."

Ford has not been as direct when the topic has come up before. He told George Stephanopoulos on an ABC Sunday morning talk show earlier this month that he had never been to a Playboy mansion party.

I don't know. That seems pretty direct to me. It's just that he was lying.

I love how Ford the liar tried to play us for fools by saying "I've never been to the Playboy Mansion" in denying the charge. Well no one accused you of being at the Playboy Mansion. You were at a Playboy party in Atlanta, that's what you're accused of. Harold, you're not clever by half so spare us the deceit and equivocation, especially such a see-through and artless one like that.

He was parsing, not lying. The party he attended was NOT at the Playboy mansion. Its as bad as lying, though.

Curious, is there a law about claiming to be a lawyer when you aren't similar to laws against impersonating doctors or public officials?

If that's his defense, then he was over the line... unless Stephanopolous was asking him about a Playboy Mansion party, that is.

Nope, the question was "Did you attend a Playboy party?"

Ford added "Mansion" to the discussion.

lol...that was a wickedly funny post. At FR it would be much worse to admit you read the articles than to admit you looked at the pics. About that, all conservatives, both socially conservative and libertarian, can agree....

Memphis Business Journal

Business Pulse results: Cohen-White race close

Wednesday, October 25, 2006
With less than two weeks until Election Day, the competition between Mark White and Steve Cohen is heating up.

They are two of the three candidates who are vying for the Ninth Congressional District seat, which will be left vacant by U.S. Rep. Harold Ford Jr., who is running for the U.S. Senate. White is the Republican nominee, and State Senator Cohen is running on the Democratic ticket. Jake Ford is running as an independent.

Last week, Memphis Business Journal asked its online readers which candidate they would send to Congress. Our unscientific online survey received 331 responses: 47 percent said they'd vote for Cohen; 43 percent want White as their Congressman; 2 percent said they're voting for the independent candidate; and 8 percent don't know.

Respondents who support Cohen say:

Those supporting White say:

Those who'd like to see new blood in Congress say:

It's the prevarications and evasions before this admission that matter. He lacks the courage of his convictions.

Be fair. He wasn't lying. Directly, that is.

He was being CLINTONESQUE.

"Read? There's stuff to read?"

I can attest to being the only man on planet earth who (long ago) bought a Playboy because there was a William F Buckley story in it.

I, uh, forgot what it said. :-)

the jokes and some cartoons in Playboy must be read. The audio version isn't out yet. The braille version is very interesting though.
