As the state preps to drop some dime on a totally avoidable lawsuit brought upon by passage of his bill to keep LGBT people from enjoying the same workplace protections as everyone else in Tennessee, here again comes state Rep. Glen Casada, sticking his fingers in a decidedly unnatural place.
Casada, who is neither a resident of Nashville nor an official elected to represent it, is slated as the keynote speaker at a Tennessee Tea Party event this Thursday at Logan's Roadhouse on Elliston. The event is billed as a strategy session for right-wingers who want more representation on the Metro Council.
This meeting will help us to identify our strengths and objectives in helping to elect a new slate of conservative candidates to the city council of Davidson County. We want to identify our conservative candidates and let them identify the help they will need in canvassing for these positions.
Williamson County's Casada, whom the TTP announces "has fought for the true conservative and will help to lead us in the future of freedom," will offer what we can only assume will be an illuminating lecture on the creeping homosexual agenda in between swallows of free peanuts.
Here at Pith, we can't quite figure which is more absurd: Casada going back to the well on this in the wake of a major lawsuit, or the TTP asking for advice from a guy who claims he has none to offer.
