Laughing at Liberals

First, you have to laugh at the timing of the study released yesterday regarding the melting of the polar ice caps by the environmental crowd. It's hard to take them seriously when, on the fifth day of Spring, March 25th, in Knoxville, Tennessee, it is snowing. Plus, it is supposed to snow tomorrow at the NASCAR race in Bristol - for the second year in a row.

Second, if you get a chance to catch a re-run or Internet-based version of Harold Ford, Jr. on CNBC's Squawk Box this morning, I highly recommend it. It's kind of like Bob Corker's interview with Gene Patterson a week back. The hosts in both cases came out as more able representatives than the candidates themselves. Now that's funny. Ford was run over by the three co-hosts this morning, and it showed as the interview played out, especially on the ports issue, where he looked like a deer caught in the headlights when one host pointed out that this was a deal for administrative operations and had nothing to do with port security.

In Corker's case last week, he just stuck to his script and managed to answer very few of Patterson's questions. I am a bit disappointed that Gene didn't ask more follow-up questions (perhaps he figured that Corker would keep on bobbing-and-weaving to avoid having to answer them), but Corker still came off badly. So, like their campaigns, I encourage you to watch those videos of Ford and Corker, and to ask yourself the following question: are these two men ready to undertake the serious responsibility of representing our great state in the United States Senate?
