This is not going to hurt Ford. As a matter of fact it may help him.

Remember (the married man) Gary Hart and Donna Rice? (http://eightiesclub.tripod.com/id323.htm ) That wasn't oh so long ago and it ruined his chance to be US president. Those days may be returning, as the cultural revolution continues its cycles. Sociologists often note that our culture has tended to go in 30-year patterns. I see it as viewing a spinning top that lurches and maintains its balance to one side for a while, then lurches and maintains its balance to the other side for a while. It finally spends its strength and falls over, gets picked up, pumped up, and the spin begins all over.

Our society hasn't always been as corrupt as it is now, although that is hard to imagine, since we didn't live in the days when most young people were carefully chaperoned and other norms were in place that kept our society on a much more straight and narrow course. Simply removing corporal punishment from schools, for instance, has done a lot to bring about a lack of respect for authority ... and with that, chaos and corruption, in our public schools. Etc.

I often hear black people make this complaint:

"On TV, and in magazines, we never see mixed couples. Blacks are never paired up with whites. What's the problem? Aren't black men good enough for white women? Aren't black women good enough for white men?"

Yet, Ford, et. al., is complaining that it was a white woman who said "Call me, Harold."

In the RNC ad, all the actors were white. If the RNC had used a sole black woman in the ad for the part of the hot chick there would have been howls that the RNC was racist in the manner described above, i.e. that Ford (a black man), isn't good enough to have a white woman say "call me..." that they had to find a token black woman for the role in the ad in order to perpetuate their (supposed) racist desire to keep the races separate.

So, how does the PC left want it?...blacks limited to blacks, or do they want 1000 flowers blooming...whites, blacks, all races mixing?

The RNC, therefore, in my opinion, was quite PC and liberal in using a white woman for the role of the vixen.

The left can't have it both ways.

The Ford Family Memphis Mafia will make sure that Shelby County will turn out in huge numbers for Junior. What he did, or didn't do won't matter to them, anyways.

However, He needs to win over Tennessee's middle ground if he wants to win statewide. And this will certainly hurt him with them, not because he went to a Playboy party, but because he went clintonian with his denials.

It conflicts a bit with his campaign commercials showing him in church, etc.

He dissembled because he is a democrat, and dissembling is a requirement for democrats seeking public office.

Well, at least he is an honest lawyer.

He failed the bar exam. He's just a schmuck with a juris doctor degree.

It puts the lie to the "pious Jr" fraud that he's been working overtime to pitch to the "crackers."

People who were already disposed to vote for him will probably be more convinced to vote for him. Social conservatives who bought into his pious Christian fraud will be thinking twice. He's not only a libertine, he's a hypocritical liar. To some people honesty still matters.

" I don't have … no apologies for that."

If that is a direct Ford quote, electing him would seriously degrade Senatorial eloquence...

This reminds me of those telephone polls that showed Alf Landon beating FDR in a landslide in 1936.

For White to have any chance at all, Jake Ford needs to get between 30%-33% of the vote. White will most likely get between 30%-35%; I'm hoping for 34% White, 33% Cohen, 33% Ford, but predict it will probably end up 48% Cohen, 31% White and 21% Ford.

In the RNC ad, all the actors were white.

What's the ethnicity of the dark hottie who opens the ad, asking "Harold Ford looks nice. Isn't that enough?"? I don't know if she's black, but she's sure a hell of lot darker than Harold!

Harold only needs to be black when he finds it convenient.

The left can't have it both ways.

Oh yes, they can! As long as enough of the sheeple pay attention to the mainstream media. Witness the Foley thing. When it happened to the 'Rats, they reelected the guy (Gerry Studds) six more times and named a marine fishery after him. When he died a couple of weeks ago, they gave him glowing eulogies.

"We are hoping that with two libs running (Democrat Cohen and independent Ford) that White will sneak in a win for the Republicans."



See my post #122.

It would be a lot easier for us to pull off the upset had the GOP nominated black Republican Derrick Bennett instead of White.

Heh... don't blame me, I voted for Bennett. One of the cases where my research trumped the "recommendations."

I'm guessing he didn't inhale and he didn't like it?

He didn't open his eyes, and he kept his hands in his pocketses, yes he did, while attending the party.

What groups recommended White? Must have been several of them, since he got over 12,000 votes and the other 4 candidates combined to get only a bit over 7,000.

Cohen is probably more liberal than Ford. He's a cut-and-runner on the war.

Cohen is known for his work on getting the Tennessee Lottery. Whup-de-friggin-do!

I forget the name of the sheet that was circulating around some of the larger church memberships at the time. I got it in time to research a bit more about some candidates than they did, but I think White was on at least one of them as the most conservative.

Ha man, I don't live in TN and if I did, I wouldn't vote for Ford. I'm just telling you the Play Boy thing is not going to hurt him and trying to make a big deal out of it will only help him. When I was younger I would have jumped at the chance to go, right along with the majority of the male population of this country.

Grow up for crying out loud!

Hmmm....36 years old, never married, no girlfriend...interesting...

Well, that's no sin. I personally know several very successful, well-off, great-looking straight men who waited until their 40's and even 50's to get married. In fact maybe that's a smart thing to do. Why not wait until you are sure of your choice, if one can ever be sure.
