Marsha Blackburn, Democrat?

WASHINGTON -- If at first you don't succeed...

Back in February, the Herenton for Congress web site made its debut with a page showing 11 white members of Tennessee's congressional delegation and asking "What's wrong with this picture?"

What was wrong with it was that the picture for U.S. Rep. John Duncan, R-Tenn., wasn't Duncan but was U.S. Rep. John Shadegg, an Arizona Republican. The page also listed the Members of Congress as "State Representatives."

Now, Herenton's web site has another illustration under the heading, "This picture looks better." It shows Herenton representing the 9th District currently held by Steve Cohen.

But there's yet another error. U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., is listed as a Democrat.


Mr. Sullivan, you actually missed the most glaring error on that graphic.

Look at Herenton's name under his picture. "W.W. Hereton".


Not only that, look in the lower right hand corner, and you'll next to Marsha is Dr. W.W. "Hereton". Who's that guy?
