Here's happy news for our state this morning: One of the directors of the Tennessee Regulatory Authority, Kenneth Hill, went on the air on his radio station and defended Pat Robertson for saying earthquake-ravaged Haiti made a deal with the devil and brought all its misery on itself. As Mary Mancini reports, Hill said:
"And so for CNN or anyone else to pull this and say he doesn't like the Haitian people or to infer that he's a crazy man, you're wrong! He has a opinion, he stated his opinion. What's yours? You can state yours..."
It was only a matter of time before Hill, an appointee of Senate speaker Ron Ramsey, stepped in it. He's the owner of a far-right religious radio station in Upper East Tennessee. His son, Matthew, is a state representative and proud Obama birther. He's also the lawmaker who wants to defend our state sovereignty by making it illegal to build a Mexico-to-Canada highway through Tennessee. Kenneth Hill was substituting as host on his son's wacky show when he defended Robertson. Ramsey appointed Hill to the Tennessee Regulatory Authority, even though Hill knew absolutely nothing about the job, to cozy up to the Christian Right whose support the lieutenant governor needs in his campaign for governor. Now, Ramsey will have to decide whether to defend the guy who defended Pat Robertson.
