Political brain fart heard 'round the state

GOP U.S. Senate candidate Bob Corker, in a forum yesterday hosted by the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce, did the unthinkable for anyone running in this year's Republican primary race - he took the side against national security interests.
In what can only be explained as a political brain fart, Corker declared that he would side with President Bush and oppose any effort by Congress to immediately kill the deal with Dubai Ports World, in effect allowing the United Arab Emirates firm to take control of operations and security of six major American seaports while further study is conducted.
As expected, during the forum Corker's two GOP primary opponents took issue with the deal and Van Hilleary even sided with Democratic challenger Harold Ford Jr. by declaring that if he could he (Van) would override any veto attempt by Bush to protect the deal with the Arab firm.
Republican strategists here in Tennessee and in D.C. have got to scratching their heads wondering why Corker would stick a bull's eye on his ass and invite the attacks that are sure to come now by siding with Bush on this one.
Let the games begin.

It's a brain fart that keeps on giving. He's been nearing this level of stupidity for a week now.

Maybe he's expecting people other than Tennesseans to vote.

Maybe, he's expecting Bush to come campaign with him throughout Tennessee. Maybe hold a fundraiser or two for him. Odds are the Administration has decided that his "centrist" credentials will prevent a Ford win statewide. They've given him some reason to stick his neck out. Rove knows that Bush's numbers in the heavily East TN-weighted SUSA don't look good for right-wing nutjob candidates, so he's decided that a not-well-liked (esp. in Chattanooga), corporatist flack in centrist clothing will get 'er done.

Three words:

RUBBER STAMP REPUBLIBOT!!!

Clearly this is not a candidate who plans to offer any oversight if elected.
