not a liberal

This latest entry on the unofficial Harold Ford blog would be funny if it wasn’t so sad:

Liberal He Is Not

Despite their best attempts, the GOP just can’t paint Harold Ford Jr. as a liberal.

Even the media recognizes that Ford is no liberal.

The Memphis Flyer thinks Ford is too conservative

As Congressman Ford himself said, “My opponents will try to paint me as some liberal. The problem is I’m pro-family, I’m pro-business, I’m pro-gun, I’m pro-tax cut for middle-class families.”

So wait, I’m confused. Is he a liberal or not? Because, I mean, god forbid a Democrat paint himself as anything but a Republican Lite. Also, I think it’s great that we finally have a pro-family candidate for Senate. No longer must we stand for the wanton slaughter of innocent families by rogue anti-family Senators.
