Karl Rove Thinks Harold Ford Jr. Is ‘Attractive’


Pedicure-loving Tennessean-turned-New Yorker Harold Ford Jr. has received an endorsement that he might want to give back. In an interview with the Memphis Daily News, everyone’s favorite turd blossom, Karl Rove said of Ford, “He’s a guy with a lot of intelligence and a lot of drive and ambition, and (Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is) a weak candidate. He’s had a few missteps here at the beginning, but … (Ford) is an articulate, attractive candidate who can sway crowds.” Rove made no mention of Ford’s cleanliness. [The Albany Project]
