Titanic sequel involving Tennessee Democrats
Longtime Congressman Bart Gordon(D) announced today that he'll retire from Congress after twenty six years in the US House. He replaced Al Gore in 1984 when Gore was elected to the US Senate. The well respected Cook Political Report quickly moved this race from the lean democrat category to the likely republican category. Todays news comes on top of news two weeks ago that longtime Congressman John Tanner(D) would also retire next year after 22 years in Congress. To say things are bad for Tennessee Democrats would be putting it mildly. The fortunes of the Tennessee Democrat Party have fallen so far south this year. That they probably passed Michelle Duggar's boobs somewhere along the way.
