Harold Ford so very much wants to be part of the punditocracy that he does what they all do eventually. In one clip he carries himself well by telling Tweety that McCain married into a beer fortune after Chris was going into his Obama doesn't understand the working class nonsense. OK, that's pretty good. However, in the next clip he has to tell the Villagers that McCain's speech was his most powerful evah! Did he see the speech? It was awful. Giving the speech in Kenner, LA was a terrible choice because he could have gone to a Blue state to spread his message and the green background made him almost unbearable to watch. Yes, McCain's very good in intimate settings, but giving speeches to larger audiences is not one of them.

Ford: And he is married, and this is no disrespect or slight to his wonderful wife, but he married into a wonderful beer fortune.

Ford: A powerful speech by John McCain this evening!

Even FOX News couldn't control their disdain for his speech. I'll have video shortly of that. Is it part of the Villager sign up card to praise McCain even when it's not called for?
