Ok, B. This is my holiday gift to you. I really like this post. It's timely and captures this man's post-scandal delusions of grandeur. I only have two questions: Why didn't the Scene turn this into a news story? Is the whole business model now to simply break news in small, bite-sized chunks on this web site? Also, where is the so-called MSM? (I guess that's three questions.) I guess it's easy to write off a guy who crashed and burned in a salacious, sordid affair. But he's still a former state senator who imploded in a galactically stupid way.
Clearly, the man can't win for losing. Aunt Riddle refuses to recognize Bredesen when he's done something good. And you, Gast, want to harp on arena cost overruns. Meanwhile, 75% of Tennesseans approve of the job he's doing as governor. Which is only slightly lower than the approval rating he had leaving the mayor's job. So who's wrong, Gast? You and your bitch (oops, make that asshole) friend on Pith? Or the 4.5 million Tennesseans who like Bredesen and don't give a shit what either one of you have to say.
Yes. The point is: The man has made significant contributions, both locally and statewide, during his time in public service. But you'd never know it to read this blog or Aunt Riddler's daily pig swill.
Aunt Riddler: You and Quacker and Goldni and Braisted and the rest of 'em all rant and rave and tweet and complain about me all the time. So, no ... It's no surprise that there would be trolls out there pretending to be Harrison.
However, you missed the point of my post. (Although perhaps it was my foul language that overshadowed it.) Point is: You spend an inordinate amount of time bitching about how terrible Bredesen is, then you proceed to celebrate the Bredesen Memorial Library as one of the city's greatest cultural achievements. Which is it: Terrible, evil governor-man who ruined it all? Or is he the most popular term-limited governor in America who happens to have left an indelible mark on the cultural and educational landscape of our city and state?
I never said Goldni needed to be taught a lesson. That was a Harrison poseur. But I did call you a know-it-all bitch. However, it wasn't intended to be a sexist slight. (Even though you try to turn everything on these blogs into a man versus woman thing.) If it makes you feel better, I'm happy to redirect and call you a know-it-all asshole.
That's funny because I hope you will give credit where credit is due, you know-it-all bitch. Phil Bredesen built the Nashville library long before you thought of boring us with silly-ass ghost stories. Feel free to lavish praise where appropriate. Or get back to your park reviews and keep counting dog turds.
I'll miss taking my kid to readings in the children's book/play area. Great way to kill a rainy Saturday. Plus, where else could you find the Utne Reader and Entertainment Weekly?
