flashback to the "Hokey Pokey"

"Put your right foot...take your right foot out..."

this from
Tennessee Democratic Party Chairman Bob Tuke released this statement following State Representative Beth Halteman-Harwell’s announcement that she may, in fact, enter the governor’s race after all: “First she’s in. Then she’s out. Then she’s back in again. It’s a bizarre way to run a campaign. If this zig-zag strategy is the kind of so-called ‘decisive leadership’ the State Republican Party is offering, then Governor Bredesen is a shoe-in for re-election.
“Unfortunately, this approach is consistent with Representative Halteman-Harwell’s record of saying one thing, then doing another. She claims she’s tough on ethics, but the State Republican Party under her leadership misappropriated more than $300,000 in political contributions. She claims she wants more jobs for Tennesseans, but her own toy company exports jobs to China. She claims she’s pro-TennCare, but she introduced legislation that would have cut it up into pieces. Does Beth Halteman-Harwell have any real convictions? How on Earth will Tennesseans know where she really stands?”
