Bryant slams Corker for cozying up to DC lobbyists; then declares his candidacy for a Senate judiciary committee assignment

GOP Senate candidate Ed Bryant, in a candidate's forum hosted by the Tennessee Press Association today, body slammed fellow republican candidate Bob Corker for attacking his GOP primary opponents - Bryant and Hilleary - for either being a lobbyist or being Washington beltway insiders. In a closing remark aimed directly at Corker - who was sitting inches away from him on the forum platform - Bryant attacked Corker for being a hypocrite. Byrant noted that Corker was in Washington recently to court DC lobbyists, that he attended an event hosted for him by DC lobbyists, and then alluded to the fact that Corker has also hired lobbyists to help him in his race.

Also during today's forum Bryant declared on at least two occasions that he looked forward to serving on the US senate judiciary committee. What was not pointed out by anyone at the forum was the fact that while it's all well and good to dream about a plum committee assignment, even if Bryant were to win his primary and get elected in November, the odds of him getting the assignment (much less decent office or a parking space) that he wants as a freshman senator realistically fall somewhere between none and no way.

The laughs continue. Ed Bryant more than most knows how the Committee Structure in Congress works. As you stated he will be so far down the list (especially since Bill Frist will be gone) that he will be lucky to be on anything! Does he think the citzens of Tennessee are that Stupid?
