The political cheap shot of the . . . day?

July 21, 2006

There are actually many flying left and right as we head into the stretch towards November. Yet this one, a gossipy story about Harold Ford Jr. that has made an appearance at Gawker, is an ugly attack on his personal life that makes Fancy Ford look like a puff piece. It takes something far more innocuous than manicures and turns it into a disparagement. I wont do whomever wrote it the justice of linking to it, and by commenting on it I’m giving it more publicity than it deserves. Still, it is out there and I see what it is trying to do, which is drive a wedge between Jr and the “black vote.” If you see it, condemn it. The race has been about race by default, let us not make it ugly.

    Gawker is still on the case,

    I’m kinda disappointed to see that it might be fake. It is always entertaining to see how low some will go.

    Thanks for the heads up.
