Right-wing radio star Phil Valentine is castigating Zach Wamp on the air for voting for the federal bank bailout, and the Wampster isn’t happy about it. According to Valentine, Wamp refused to shake his hand at the end of a candidate forum that the radio host moderated. Then at a tax day tea party rally, Wamp confronted Valentine. On his show, Valentine told what happened:

“I said, ‘Hey Zach, how ya doing?’ And he said, ‘I just wanted to come over here. I know that you’re the most influential man on the radio in Tennessee, but I wanted to come over here and look you in the eye and tell you to your face that I will be your next governor of Tennessee.’ And I said, ‘Great.’ Man, he’s intense, isn’t he? And then he walked off. And I’m going, OK fine, but it doesn’t change the fact that you voted for the bailout Zach.”

Valentine said he thought, “Dude, take some decaf or something and calm down.”
