So what do the Mumpower Republicans do at this point?
Speaker Williams has apparently promised to appoint BOTH Republicans and Democrats to committee chairmanships.
Should the Mumpower 49 turn up their nose at the chance to share power and look like overly partisan fools at a time of financial calamity in the state, or do they take what's offered and call the bluff of the Williams 50?
The average Tennessee voter doesn't give two shits about the inside-baseball stuff that you and I love to the pit of our souls (if you didn't, you wouldn't be here reading about this, now, would you?), and we know that hurt Democrats when it came to the Kurita situation. WE knew what happened, but the average voter didn't want to know, or care. They just knew that Kurita won her election and had it taken away from her by those evil Democrats.
And they made us PAY.
So, Mr. Almost-Speaker-But Still-GOP-Leader Mumpower, what are y'all going to do? Are you going to spend the next two years in a snit, bitching about what could have been, or are you going to learn what it means to govern?
The people of Tennessee are watching.
