"Anything To Win"

I've had Bob Corker on my mind a lot lately. Maybe it's because recently he's been so focused on making wild accusations about everyone else on the U.S. Senate ballot in a feeble attempt to grab some much needed Tennessee headlines. All this while claiming to be civil and ethical.
In an effort to try to understand Corker better, I offer this insight:
Bob Corker and Tonya Harding have a lot in common.
Consider the facts:
- in 1994, both Bob and Tonya tried to win a crown (Bob went for the U.S. Senate seat; Tonya competed to be the US figure skating champ).
- that same year, both were disgraced in public (Bob was called "pond scum" by fellow Republicans for his vicious and unsuccessful attacks on Bill Frist; Tonya was banned from skating for hiring a hit man to whack opponent Nancy Kerrigan).
- in 2006, Bob is running again for the U.S. Senate, once again recklessly attacking everyone in the race - throwing truth to the wind - while claiming to be Mr. Nice Guy.
- this year Tonya, who has resurfaced as a professional boxer, is featured in a Game Show Network series called "Anything To Win" that showcases her antics and her lust for fame at any cost.
See a pattern?
