Right where he belongs: Harold Ford, Jr. joins Faux News
The circle is now complete. The failed U.S. Senate candidate from Tennessee, former Rep. Harold Ford, Jr., finds a home. (The Tennessean):
Now heading the Democratic Leadership Council and working for Merrill Lynch, the former Congressman from Memphis was bested by Republican Bob Corker in the November election.
Former Congressman Harold Ford, Jr. has joined FOX News as a political contributor to the network’s news programming, announced Roger Ailes, Chairman and CEO of FOX News. He will be under contract with FOX News to provide political commentary and analysis on international events and the 2008 election.
…In making the announcement, [Fox head Roger] Ailes said, “We are very happy that Harold Ford, Jr. will bring his independent voice and brilliant ability to analyze the issues to FOX News. His wealth of experience and insight will be key to FOX as we endeavor to stay on top of fast moving events around the world and here in our own country. The upcoming Presidential campaign will be one of the most interesting in our lifetime and Harold’s depth of knowledge and analysis about American politics will enhance the news we deliver to our viewers.”
Harold Ford, the man who carried business cards with the Ten Commandments on them during his campaign, the homophobe who bleated his head off about the evils of the NJ marriage ruling. Yes, he’s home.
