In an unprecedented move of desperation, Harold Ford, Jr. is taking his message to the people. This time, by interrupting the Bar Mitzvah of a 12-year-old boy in Knoxville.
During the service, after complete participation and reading from the Torah, Ford gave a moving account of how growing up in a non-Jewish political family brought him closer to God and a full understanding of how to get things done in Washington.
Although most of the family did not respond to Ford’s antics, the attending rabbi finally promised to at least consider voting for him â€“ and he left.
Ford’s communications director is very excited about this outcome, stating that “…was almost as successful as crashing Corker’s press conference, but the food was better.”
