First, Knoxville Republican Rep. Stacy Campfield’s ridiculous bill to “ban elementary and middle schools from teaching about anything other than heterosexuality was angrily derided in a legislative committee.” Big surprise, he fabricated the issue. Bigger surprise, Democrats stood up and said, “No More.” Then, the Tennessean woke up and smelled election integrity with a front page article about Tennessee’s lack of a paper ballot. Who cares that it only took them 3 years? And now, West Wing addicts everywhere can stop bemoaning the loss of their favorite TV show and start living it. Remember when Matt Santos wasn’t given a snowball’s chance in hell of winning against moderate-Republican Arnie Vinick?
Year of the Rat, nothing. This is the year of the underdog.
UPDATE: Interesting discussion going on at AC’s house, a.k.a WKRN’s Volunteer Voters, as to whether Stacy Campfield wields any kind of influence up there on the hill. All evidence points to no. However, it is nice (and rare) to see someone try to use the “homosexual agenda” wedge issue to their advantage and fail so quickly and so spectacularly.
