So, Harold Ford, the Democrat running against Bob Corker for the Tennessee Senate seat has, by all accounts, run a really good campaign.

Instapundit has a round-up of links with plenty of reaction. What was it someone said about the Democrats never missing an opportunity to miss an opportunity? The RCP average has Ford up four and yet he's pulling stunts that will make the nutroots applaud. And, as we all know, things that make the nutroots applaud are not the same things that make you a palatable Democrat in Tennessee.
