    Seems like a list of republicans flip-flopping around on how to get anything done in Tennessee and a list of excuses, couda, shoulda, woulda and a lot of wishful thinking and failures. And the kicker is the republican run state is #1 in the country for new virus cases. But we’ve got some high heritage numbers from the group that led us to #1, that’s what counts in “conservative” land.

      And what’s really great is that it appears as though we will continue to live in “‘conservative’ land” for the foreseeable future.

    It would be interesting to know on which post pedantic blowhard bore Stuart repeated himself at length the most times.

      I bet it was in regard to one of the articles regarding the Senate race in which I successfully convinced Republicans to vote for Hagerty rather than Sethi through the art of well thought out repetition.

        Don’t pat yourself on your back too hard, Stuart. We wouldn’t want you to disgorge all that Heritage kool-aid you’ve been drinking.

        That Haslam RINO will be a one-termer after he crosses Senator Ivanka Trump and her populist agenda.

        If Haggerty wants to secure his place in the new Republican Party, he must join Louie Gohmert’s (Heritage 92%) lawsuit against RINO Mike Pence now.

    Yep, it is Stuart’s money and such clear and concise guidelines that he sets for the republican party that keeps them running in circles. Just let him live out his leadership fantasy with no masks involved and all that “freedom.”

    In the 2021 Year in Review there will be stories about the incredible negligence by the “leaders” of our state to address this Pandemic, their lack of any planning and their failed attempts at making any progress while arguing about all the freedoms they just had to protect. Our conservative legislature has carried their arguments about personal freedom to an extreme, insisting that public health measures, like mask wearing somehow infringes on the publics’ freedoms. Our fellow citizens are dying in large numbers every day while conservative leaders do nothing. Almost 7,000 Tennesseans have died during this Pandemic. Isn’t that enough to warrant action? We need Mass Vaccination Events set up all across the state. Currently we have less than 2% of our state population vaccinated. We can, and should do much better than that.
