Yesterday Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam paid a visit to the Commercial Appeal.
Was he there to high five for the veto of Senate Bill 3597 that would have prohibited the state’s public universities from discriminating against religious student groups? (Remember the Vanderbilt case where the university permits people not in a group – in this case a Catholic group – to become an officer in the group.)
Or perhaps he was there to institute a Politifact truth-o-meter for newspapers as they do towards Republican office holders or candidates. If so, might I suggest a range of lies going from Paper Fire to Burning Rag to Ash Heap.
I hope it was the latter.
