Thank God a majority of Tennesseans had the good sense to choose Bob Corker over Harold Ford, Jr., aka Junior, in the 2006 U.S. Senate election ...
If Junior'd been elected, he would be spending every waking moment spouting Democratic National Committee-approved talking points on any TV program that'd have him as a guest. Corker, on the other hand, has spent the last year-and-a-half establishing himself a deep-thinking member of the U.S. Senate. Check out this article from National Review if you don't believe me.
Oh, and to all of the friends, colleagues and compatriots who criticized me for supporting Corker in the '06 Republican primary, check out this passage from the above-referenced article:
"Since winning, Corker has turned out to be more conservative than people expected, particularly on the economic issues that most concern him. Earlier this year, almost all of his colleagues voted for a stimulus bill and a housing bill. Corker, moved by the quaint theory that such bills ought to stimulate the economy and help the housing market, voted no."
UPDATE: Conservatives for Corker referenced the same article earlier this week.
