Oh heavens, the GOP is in FULL PANIC mode again.
I really think that Speaker Williams ought to have a cardboard cutout of Jimmy Naifeh to put in the Speaker's chair whenever he has to step away for a moment; the Mumpower 49 would have multiple coronaries.
The latest comes from a WSMV report that a resolution may be introduced in the House tomorrow to create a CEREMONIAL title for Naifeh, that of Speaker Emeritus, and the GOP is going BERSERK. Go watch GOP Assistant House Leader Glen Casada in that video, and see if he isn't on the verge of collapse.
IT'S A CEREMONIAL TITLE, PEOPLE, NOT THE FREAKING KEYS TO THE KINGDOM. BREATHE, WILL YOU?
Even our own Aunt B., for heaven's sakes, got the twitches about this, for some reason.
What this suggests to me is that Mumpower and Casada, by apparently NOT considering for a moment that they needed to do some SERIOUS ass-kissing for a guy they tried to beat TWICE and failed, sealed their own doom.
They are idealogues and zealots and haven't the faintest idea how to actually RUN anything, and they have proved that running the Tennessee House of Representatives is WAY above their capabilities.
There ARE good people on the other side of the aisle, folks; I would mention some of them by name, except that I'm afraid the mullahs in charge of the Mumpower Jihad would make their lives a living hell and question their motives. They are going to be hurt by this, and, by extension, so are we.
We need TWO strong, capable, parties in this country, and clearly nationally, and in the Tennessee House, we only have one functional party. The sooner the House Republicans figure out that they will wind up tossed out if they keep following Mumpower, the better off they will be.
I'm not holding my breath.
Now, if we could just build a statue of Naifeh outside the House chambers.......
