During the US Senate primary last year, all I kept hearing was how Rosalind Kurita was supposed to be so much more liberal than Harold Ford, and that she was someone we could trust to vote the Democratic agenda.
I disagreed. I thought her voting record was just as far to the right as his was (Although her rhetoric didn't seem to really match it all that well--- Tuxedo votes with white socks rhetoric). She certainly didn't have the chequered family history Ford had, but her father is a Bush Pioneer, and if I had to tell you which of those made me more uncomfortable, I would have to mull it over for a while and get back to you.
I hate it when I set my expectations that low and I'm proven right.
The office of the Lieutenant Governor is now in Republican hands. And Rosalind Kurita helped put it there.
Thanks for nothing, Ros.
