Oh, sure, Campfield has made an effort (and I literally mean AN effort, one) to seem less like the engineer on the crazy train to Evilville by speaking reasonably about the Murfreesboro mosque situation. But who can forget his efforts to ban discussions of gay people from schools? His sponsorship of just about every piece of legislation that posits that women are crazy lying bitches men need protecting from? His claims earlier this summer that the state's efforts to fight infant mortality amounted to printing some fliers, thus trying to justify the Republicans' plan to cut funding for lowering infant mortality? How he thinks the state is shitty and ill-run but thinks orphanages are a good idea? His attack on the intellectual property rights of authors? And how he wanted to not issue birth certificates to babies he doesn't like? How he gets to make laws you have to follow, but he can break whichever ones are inconvenient for him, like, you know, basic parking laws?
What exactly does Haslam think Campfield is doing right?
Now, in a perfect world, the Democrats would be all over this. I'd be getting press releases left and right seeking to tie Haslam tighter to Campfield. McWherter would be pushing "A vote for Haslam is a vote for Campfield's agenda" to every voter undecided or upset with him in an effort to win folks back.
But I think we all know the Democrats could not make piss out of water, so I fully expect this opportunity to pass them by.
Still, Haslam is raising money for Campfield. Whew, doggie, that's ... that's something.
