Basil, Basil, Please Leave Us A Little Pride

First we get lampooned by Hannah Montana, and now we have Basil Marceaux.  I’m telling you- Tennesseans can’t catch a break.  For those of you who have been misled, I’m going to bust a few myths about my home state:

1.  We own shoes.

2.  Most of us go to the movies in modern theaters with stadium seating, not drive ins.

3.  Yes, many of us have southern accents.  Does this mean we sound like Reba and Billy Ray?  NO

4.  We are not all imbeciles.  We have fabulous universities like Vanderbilt and Fisk.

However…I have to be honest.  We do indeed, have Basil Marceaux.


He did not manage to win the Republican primary, but will Basil give up?  Of course not.  He’s launching a write-in campaign.  He feels he has a pretty good chance, because he thinks his proposal that all traffic stops be outlawed will be pretty darn popular with the Democrats, because you know…they are “poor people”.

Oh, Basil… I don’t know whether to laugh or cry.

  1. As someone who went and met her husband at Vanderbilt, I can attest to the fact that Nashvillians DO wear shoes, have beautiful accents, and are the nicest people I have ever met! I LOVE NASHVILLE!!!!

    Basil, God Love him. Just remember what Mother Theresa says, he is Jesus in disguise 🙂

  2. You have to admit, though, that he is highly entertaining. Much like Miley Cyrus.

    Also, I am not sure he should be left to his own devices for long periods of time, if these are the sort of shennanigans he gets up to.

    Much like Miley Cyrus.
