Jed Clampett for Senate 

Harold Ford channels his inner redneck.

"What Tennesseans will get is a Jesus-loving, gun-supporting believer that family should come first, that taxes should be lowered, and that America should be strong. When Tennesseans send us to the Senate, that's what they'll get in my votes, and that's what they'll get in the kind of leadership that we have not had in the Senate over the last six years."

Yep, that's Democratic (theoretically) Senate candidate Harold Ford Jr. on Fox News Sunday. Afterwards, we hear tell he went a'swimmin' with Ellie Mae and Jethro in the cement pond.
