RNC Running Ad In Tennessee Against Ford; Even Corker Calls It "Tacky"
Click here to read the whole story.

Sadly, though, the RNC doesn't plan to listen to their candidate -- a sign of how scared Republicans are that a Democratic win in Tennessee would lead to Democratic control of the Senate.

RNC spokesman Camille Anderson told the Commercial Appeal, "The RNC stands by this advertisement, and I have no reason to believe that it will not continue to air on television stations across the state."

It would be ironic if, in spite of Corker's intentions, Tennessee voters rejected the ad, and as a result, rejected Corker.

1. Most of my repug associates think it's rather tacky
They also think Corker is behind it. This RNC ad could actually help Ford.

I haven't seen it but I heard that it is really a questionable and nasty ad.
So I guess many in TN won't be happy about this kind of campaigning.
Corker distances himself from the negative campaigning while the ad will still be aired to slander Ford.

Anyone know more about Corker? I don't really know whether he is a total scumbag or if he is someone who still has principles. Because I have also seen short scenes were he appeared to act in a respectful manner towards Ford.

6. They only watch Fox.
They don't know Corker has asked the RNC to pull it.
