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.
