Harold Ford's big joke
Until compelling evidence emerges to suggest otherwise, I think you have to believe that Harold Ford is just having a laugh with this Senate thing. How else do you explain an interview in which a seasoned politician responds to a question about visiting Staten Island by saying, "I landed there in the helicopter." Or explains that "I don’t really take the subway very often unless it’s wintertime and I can’t get a taxi on Fifth." How about one who says of his relationship with guns, "I do shoot them, and I shoot them at things that can’t shoot back. And will continue to do that. And by that, I want to be clear, I don’t mean children."
Got that? Harold Ford does not shoot children. And then there's this gem.
Q. Jets or Giants?
A. I had breakfast about every morning when I am in town, or I should say, several mornings, at the Regency. I see my friends the Tisches. Steve Tisch is my close personal friend. I have been to more Giants games. I spent the holidays, I had lunch over the holidays with Woody Johnson. We met for the first time. I am happy for his team.
Oh, and he draws his checks from Wall Street. Man of the people, that one.
