Harold Ford Jr. Is Serious About Running ... He Has to Be. He Went On Colbert.

Colbert Report Full EpisodesPolitical HumorEconomy

In other random news about Pretty, Pretty Princess Ford and his run for NY Senate:

Karl Rove finds Harold "attractive." No matter how you put that it still sounds kind of gross because, dude, who wants whatever Karl Rove is crushing on? Who wants to BE whatever Karl Rove is crushing on?

He can't get any respect on the NY Times letters page. "What? He's a DEMOCRAT, you say? Why I didn't notice!"

Oh, and he's totally pro-reproductive rights and he LOVES the geighs now. Loves. Hearts, unicorns, rainbow sparkle ponies and everything. What? What are you all looking at? Seriously. He's down with the people who are into people who are the same gender as themselves. If you didn't know you better ask some gay body.

He should have watched the show before he came on.

For Colbert being a comedian, he was actually pretty tough on HFJ, and rightfully so. Some folks, including HFJ, don't understand that in order to parody politics you actually have to have a good handle on politics. Word to the wise, don't go on Comedy Central thinking that you are going to get risk free publicity, it will be the first and most likely the last mistake of your political career.

Speaking of comedy gold, I know you'll enjoy this, Snob.

(And whoever set it up has a dark, dark sense of humor).

Harold Ford is a political joke, its one thing to be a 'moderate dem', its another to be utterly clueless about a State you have no idea about and claim you want to represent. Every time I see Ford spewing cowardly bs, he reminds me of a lighter version of uncle sam. Besides, who the hell needs another corporate shill in the Senate, we already have such useless elected officials representing the interest of Bankers and the drug industry @ the expense of everyday working families and their survivor. Ford should stop while he's ahead, he'll get less than 1% of the black votes in NY and his 'blackness' would not do him any good.

did you see this? Nice list I think....

I just did a political suvey for OTR survey over the phone ... those things are HORRIBLE. How can they expect to glean information about pending elections when they're calling your house on a Saturday? That said, HFJ needs to go over there ... what a craven little miscreant.

You will really like this one DB. Now HFJ is channeling the ghost of Eleanor Roosevelt.

Didn’t ER die 2 years before Bobby’s run and even before he intended to run? I think it was JFK that ER first opposed for his ‘56 VP run because he was for the Jury Trial Amendment that would negatively impact Civil Rights.
I wish HFJ would channel the Ghost of Christmas future and see that he will have such an embarrassing loss for this NY seat, that he will ruin both his political and corporate career. If he weakens Gillibrand to the point that she loses the general election to a Republican; he won’t have to worry about being elected dog catcher because he will be dog doo doo. No one likes a traitor or a shill, not even the Republicans. He needs to stay in corporate or go back to TN alone, and get his seat back.
Even in NY the ministers are never going to convince enough Black women to vote for HFJ to create a base.

Colbert roasted that tail! LOL

It's so sad how Harold Ford Jr. went over to the dark side. He is even trying to distance himself from a man who had been a political ally at some point, President Obama.
