Re: “The Democrats' favorite spittle-flecked Republican, Zach Wamp, lets his loony flag fly on the campaign trail

I just want to say, that even God is pro-abortions, one in ever five pregnancy end in an a miscarriage. We need to keep religion out of politics!

Re: “The Democrats' favorite spittle-flecked Republican, Zach Wamp, lets his loony flag fly on the campaign trail

Wamp belongs to a religious cult that believes itself to be working directly for God and therefore above human law, and which has an agenda of world theocracy run by the rich and powerful -- kind of like Ayn Rand meets Jerry Falwell. This is the group that worked to get the death penalty for being gay and prison for not reporting a gay person you know to the authorities in Uganda. He really is far out of the mainstream with his religious beliefs, and he means to impose them on you and me as the law of the land. Read Jeff Scarlet's book, The Family, if you want to know who Wamp really is.

Re: “The Democrats' favorite spittle-flecked Republican, Zach Wamp, lets his loony flag fly on the campaign trail

and so now we know that on current trends the population of our country will go to negative growth in the next decade. Where are the new people going to come from to support the advertisers who pay your salary and the tax dollars that will help take care of your parents? maybe the illegals will pick up the tab but I doubt it? it certainly wont be the aborted children that become statistics over the years.

Im not anti abortion and Im not a holy roller but you are making false statements simply because what Wamp believes is against your beliefs. No problem thats fine. Castigate him and say that he is wrong. Its the American way. but to label someone as crazy simply because they disagree with you is the simplest form of a rant and out right lie. Why do you feel that its your job to PERSONALLY try and destroy someone by calling them names instead of just showing us the issues and let the people decide?

Are you afraid of the outcome? I dont really care one way or the other but if I were betting my mortgage payment I'd bet on Wamp winning the primary because most people I have spoken with DO NOT agree with your assessment. They actually liker the guy. Maybe not the 27 registered voters who read you but all the other voters.

As for McWherter winning against any Republican thats about as likely as you ever wining a Pulitzer.

Sometimes its hard to believe the sorry state of journalism but when I read your obsessive rants I understand why the profession has collapsed. theres just no incentive to be truthful. Its all about gotcha. You should try investigative journalism...I hear there is still a market for that. After today Im deleting you from my feedreader. You are truly one angry and cynical person and Im glad I dont know you personally or have to work with you. It must be so depressing to be around you. Have a nice life.

Re: “Let the budget bloodletting begin as the GOP cuts off life support for babies

If Phil submitted a balanced budget as the law requires he/they wouldn't have this problem.

Re: “State Republicans diddled away their historic session with ineffectual gasbaggery. That's the good news.

Please name any Tennessee politician, Democrat or Republican that deserves to stay in office. I am not sure which is worse, sniffing airplane glue with West Tennessee’s booze-hound Ophelia Ford or being threatened by the boot of the that slack-jawed troglodyte, Ron Ramsey. Let’s face it, our state capital is firmly sandwiched between a matching bookends of idiots.

Re: “Mike McWherter is becoming the Democrats' contender in the governor's race by default — which could be the party's best hope

“Laws pertaining to how the ‘State of Tennessee Registry of Election Finance’ regulate the practices of candidates during a political campaign are in dire need of revision. Total control by Democrats and Republicans at the exclusion of ‘we the people’ Independents has placed limitations throughout the process. Free media publicity for two-party candidates while ignoring Independent candidates is unethical. The ‘value of free publicity’ should be determined, and then reported as a contribution. Anything that benefits the campaign of candidates should be included as a financial disclosure. Otherwise, media owners and their ‘special interest’ advertisers – who support particular candidates – can manipulate public opinion in favor of the ‘politician’ who promises to serve the whims of campaign contributors if elected. While Democrats and Republicans are getting free publicity, Independents are being insulted, mocked, or simply ignored by the media.” -- White Horse Independent Gubernatorial Candidate James Reesor

Re: “State Republicans diddled away their historic session with ineffectual gasbaggery. That's the good news.

It makes one nostalgic for the good ole days, when the consent of the governed meant something. Haven't found the source of this quote, but it certainly fits the Xtian Rethugs who have usurped control of our government: "Republican legislators, when you took your office, you put your hand on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution. You did not put your boot on the Constitution and swear to uphold the Bible."

Someone should remind them of that, if they can excise the tufts of angel-wing from their reich-wing ears.

We should thank the Arizona legislature for taking the dumbest legislation award back for a few days. Or not.

Thank you for telling the emperor he's not wearing clothes. Do our representatives (and I use the term "our" loosely) really think they we are awed by their flam-floozy finery? If so, they are more egocentric than I thought possible. What a bunch of know-nothing do-nothings.

I'm SO proud of their accomplishments. They must all be graduates of Eric Crafton's School of Bad Policy.

Re: “Wanna see a clash of the titans? Watch the Susan Lynn/Mae Beavers grudge match.

I also remember the campaign that Lynn ran against Joslin, very well. Lynn pulled every evil and critical card she could possibly dig up. Political Insider, you could not be more correct. Lynn never bothered to mention that the Joslin family suffered the loss of a son, brother, and angel and were overwhelmed with the medical bills.
Lynn has always made an attempt to push the words "Jesus" and "Christianity" in all of her speeches and constantly victimizes herself. When will she take responsibility for her actions? Never. Steve Gill did a wonderful job describing her true self.

Susan Lynn disgusts me.
Full support for Mae Beavers here.

Re: “Wanna see a clash of the titans? Watch the Susan Lynn/Mae Beavers grudge match.

Who released this email? It looks like it was a private exchange between Gill and Mrs. Lynn?

Re: “Wanna see a clash of the titans? Watch the Susan Lynn/Mae Beavers grudge match.

I remember the campaign that Lynn ran against Bobby Joslin. Beavers refused to endorse any candidates in that primary and that made Lynn very, very mad. She believed herself to be the heir apparent to the Beavers' seat. That is what really started "The Rift". Further, Beavers (privately) disagreed with Lynn's scorched earth campaign tactics against her opponents, particularly when Lynn made public the fact that Joslin had declared bankruptcy. Lynn neglected to mention that the reason for the bankruptcy were the medical bills that mounted up against him during his son's lengthy illness. The illness ultimately took his son's life and left the family in dire financial straights. Lynn broadcast the partial details about Joslin's personal financial problems while portraying herself as a Jesus loving Christian in every campaign speech. Hmmmm...."what would Jesus do?" indeed.

Re: “Wanna see a clash of the titans? Watch the Susan Lynn/Mae Beavers grudge match.

Too bad that made absolutely no sense WilsonCountyLongTimer.

Susan is anything but classy, she used Mae's cancer as a campaign promo for herself. Good try through. You should check your definition of "classy" because last time I checked it did not mean mud dishing and gossiping.

Good try though.

Re: “Wanna see a clash of the titans? Watch the Susan Lynn/Mae Beavers grudge match.

Stay classy Susan. If Mae keeps refusing to comment, then you just keep dishing the mud. I mean, if you won't share the gossip and tell all the little slights and innuendos, who will? Clearly, this is all Mae's fault.

Re: “With a courageous — and considered — vote for health care reform, Rep. Jim Cooper stands tall in a historic moment

The title of this article should read "an historic moment." Do you proofread this stuff?

Re: “With a courageous — and considered — vote for health care reform, Rep. Jim Cooper stands tall in a historic moment

I don't trust politicians who march in lock-step with their party leadership, regardless of the merits (good or bad) of any bill being considered. Jim Cooper does not appear to be one to kiss the ring of Queen Pelosi, but rather makes her grant boons to him in order to have his support. Rather than foaming at the mouth because I disagree with him on some things, I appreciate his ability to study a bill and make rational arguments for or against - even when his analysis is wrong in my opinion. Time will tell on this health care debate and we'll either find that it is the best thing since sliced bread, or our grandchildren will curse us for letting this happen, or (as usual) it will be both good and bad with "fixes" in the future.

Re: “With a courageous — and considered — vote for health care reform, Rep. Jim Cooper stands tall in a historic moment

Enough with the bitter RW talking points about the bill being "shoved thorough". Republicans had their chance and they made bad arguments. They relied too often on fearmongering fables about Socialism and "death panels". Really now -- does anyone think Jim Cooper is a socialist? It's deeply ironic that Cooper caught all kinds of grief from the liberal side because he didn't support the bill for some time, primarily I think because it didn't meet his critria for fiscal responsibility. I thought that move was a little overwrought, also. Now the flip side is happening. Big surprise. I wonder where all the disgruntled people here were when Republicans were actually jamming the Medicare prescription bill down America's throat when they knew the figures they gave were 30% off and Tom DeLay bad unethical deals with Republicans? I wonder if they even know the suggestion of the individual mandate stated with Republicans? For fun, everyone should review Grassley and Orrin Hatch's sudden memory loss on why they sponsored a bill with a mandate in the Clinton years. Now..literally..both of them have the same response. They can't remember why they did it. But now it's just terrible. There are ways to criticize this bill and legitimate reasons to do it. Some vary, some may have an overlap between both parties. I have no problem with that but whining "Fire Jim Cooper" is not a very compelling one. THANK YOU, JIM COOPER!
