Aging higher ed geek with a sense of humor and genuine respect for well crafted debate.
Pondering the craziness of Tennessee politics.
I think I recall a lot of talk during the recent campaign that the new leadership/majority in or legislature would be focused on job creation and making it easier to do business in Tennessee. I must have missed the research that connects gun legislation to job creation.
You mean to say that all of those nefarious, library-card-carrying, bi-focal adjusting, bibliophiles are allowed to vote? How could our legislators miss that? "Bibliofiles": the word just rolls off the tongue with evil connotations. Thank goodness the Screen Actors Guild members aren't issued state authorized photo ID's...the next thing you know, we have Thespians voting. Oh, the horror!!
The frightening part of "McWherter was content to repeat the mind-numbing monologues he's been forced to memorize for this campaign": ...is there a script he could memorize to run the governor's office?
"I can't even begin to tell you how disappointed I am in our Nashville councilmembers that not one of them has had to apologize for a pole-dancing incident."
I am not so sure that I didn't spot several local politicians 'poll dancing' during the recent primary vote. :)
This election ceased being a choice between a democrat or republican philosophy the moment that the winners of the primary were decided. Many of us want the best possible person leading the state, regardless of the banner under which they rally their troups. We have had difficult choices in the past trying to distinguish the best leader from the candidates running...that simply isn't the case this year.
