Best Display of Political Hardball 

The Tennessee Democratic Party

The Democrats take the pennant for tossing out Rosalind Kurita's 19-vote victory over Tim Barnes in their state Senate primary. Kurita earned the party's ire two years ago for voting for Ron Ramsey for Senate speaker and giving control of the upper chamber to the Republicans. In return, she was awarded the position of speaker pro tem, which came complete with a fancy new office. Democrats have been plotting their revenge ever since. This month, they took it. She accused Democrats of stealing her election, which is exactly what they did. Don't cry for me, Rosalind Kurita. —JEFF WOODS
