It's a slow news day, so the state Republican Party has issued a long press release flailing away at Gov. Phil Bredesen for making a little joke as he delivered a $1 million grant to help restore The Hermitage.
GOP chair Robin Smith says, "Gov. Bredesen's arrogance in making these revealing remarks in a time that critical services are going to be cut in Tennessee and while more than $8 million in taxpayer money is going to be poured into the ground—literally—to build a lavish underground ballroom and banquet hall at the governor's mansion is another breach of trust with the people who elected him."
We wouldn't even bother to post on this but, as we say, it's a slow news day.
