"The low road" is already litttered with Corker campaign trash

On the same day Bob Corker's Senate campaign emails out a Chattanooga News Free Press editorial that claims Harold Ford Jr. is taking "the low road" by pointing out in a tv ad that Corker's construction company got popped by INS for allowing illegal immigrants to work on one of their construction jobs, word is that Corker's camp has begun a "push poll" attack in select counties that mirrors what was done by George Bush's camp against John McCain in the 2000 presidential campaign. In this instance the caller asks a serious of questions meant to plant unrelated and unsubstantiated negative impressions about Ford disguised as legitimate survey questions.
Anyone taking "the low road" at this point would find it already littered with Corker campaign trash.

Does Mr. Corker not remember what he did to Bryant and Hilleary? Factcheck.org. ripped him for that one and he still does it...Sign of a desperate campaign to me

Unrelated but I actually got a push-poll call that I was sure was from the Jim Bryson campaign. Lots of "if you knew that Governor Bredesen shredded documents in a sexual harassment lawsuit would you be more likely, less likely or about the same to vote for him." The funniest thing, though, is that the guy asking the questions could barely speak English. And he was asking these questions about how Bredesen had turned Tennessee into a "haven for illegal immigrants." I finally asked the guy how he could ask this kind of question and he said, "I just have to read what's on the paper."
