Let me just pile on Steve Cohen (D, TN-0) here.
As you probably know, Rep. Cohen responded to the President’s call for civility by calling the Republican party a bunch of Nazis. Because that’s what he does; and I don’t really expect bigots like him to change. Cohen is precisely the sort of person who can’t feel big until he’s made everybody around him small; and since people like that rarely have the ability to | Read More »
Meet Charlotte Bergmann (R CAND, TN-09).
She’s running in Steve Cohen’s district, and for some reason* she’s very, very annoyed that Rep. Cohen is going around accusing Tea Partiers of being racist, would-be Klansmen. Charlotte’s site is here: please check it out. Moe Lane

You know, back in the day, I had a certain sympathy for Democrat Steve Cohen (TN-09): back in 2008 he had been targeted for being a Jew by primary challenger Nikki Tinker, with nary a word of objection made by then Senator and now-President Barack Obama, who Cohen enthusiastically supported.

Herenton of Memphis, has argued that Tennessee needs a black voice in its currently all-white delegation. He is running a blistering campaign against Representative Steve Cohen, a fellow Democrat with a precarious hold on the majority black | Read More »
Got that moral indignation in just under the wire there, Barry.
Watch the latest exercise in hate speech from Democratic challenger Nikki Taylor – Hi, Nikki! Nothing EVER GOES AWAY on the Internet, you miserable anti-Semite. It’s useless to even try! – against Democratic incumbent Steve Cohen (TN-09) for the context of the subtitle: Nikki Tinker race baits Steve Cohen. @ Yahoo! Video This was apparently a little too public hateful for Senator Obama to ignore | Read More »
Inconvenient Democrat Watch: Steve Cohen.
The one that Ed saw has already been taken down. What makes this particularly sad, of course, is that Representative Cohen is an early Obama super-delegate… and one who has been assaulted for months, in some of the vilest ways possible. He has a right to receive some sort of support from his erstwhile patron, in other words: either out of pragmatism, or simple human | Read More »
