So Senate Democrats elected a new caucus chair today, choosing Lowe Finney over none other than Ophelia Ford, who had been campaigning for the job. Pith in the Wind
is stunned by this development. How could Democrats resist choosing this exalted princess of the Ford family dynasty who's best known to date for falling off a bar stool in a Nashville hotel? What better senator to lead Democrats through these troubled times? Pith
demands a recount.
Here is Ophelia's irresistible email solicitation to senators:
During my tenure as a senator for this great state of Tennessee, I have enjoyed our caucus leadership under the Honorable Joe Hayes and Roy Herron and I thank them for their time that they served. After much thought and consideration, I have concluded that I am interested in serving as our next Democratic Caucus Chair. I am only interested if there is no other member with more seniority in the Senate than I. If you would like to speak with me about this personally, please feel free to contact me.
I am respectfully asking for your support.
