As Harold Ford Jr. preps for his upcoming marriage to Emily Threlkeld, he may want to also be thinking about how to appease some black voters in his home state of Tennesse — if, that is, he ultimately wants to be elected as governor there, as insiders have said.
In reaction to his proposal last month, several African-American voters have been asking in various Internet forums why he didn’t choose a black mate.
“Why is he doing this to his people?” one woman who claimed to have dated him in the past has asked Big Head DC. “I am hurt, and we should all be angry.”
Lawd, when Snob reader Kimberley sent me this nugget all I could do was laugh. I'm not one who thinks every interracial relationship is a personal rebuke of me, because, um ... it's not about me. But still, this is HILARIOUS! Naturally some people are pissed, but the IRONY!
Some of you may recall the attack ad that made Ford look like a white woman chasing playboy. Does he owe the RNC an apology now? I mean, the bigots probably would appreciate their apology considering the razzing they got for that moronic ad.
But oh wait? You lost your senate bid. Never mind.
