Oh Basil, You Were Too Good For This World

Traffic stops will continue unabated in the not-so-great state of Tennessee, as Basil Marceaux incomprehensibly goes down in defeat in his race for the GOP gubernatorial nomination! The only consolation is that secessionist Zach Wamp and Lt. Gov. Ron “Islam is a cult” Ramsey lost as well. The winner was Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam, who is described as a “centrist” but this is Tennessee so honestly he is probably also awful. In exciting House primaries, one of Sarah Palin’s candidates lost, as did one of the Club for Growth’s candidates, and the Jewish guy backed by the Congressional Black Caucus beat the black guy in Memphis.

One of Basil Marceaux’s Leading Opponents, Zach Wamp, Would Like To Secede Maybe

Congressman Zach Wamp is locked in a three-way battle for the Republican nomination for Tennessee governor (though it will ultimately go to a fourth candidate, Basil Marceaux), and so to give himself an edge he has resorted to the best talking point ever (after traffic-stop slavery emancipation), hinting that he maybe would like to secede from the Union. “I hope that the American people will go to the ballot box in 2010 and 2012 so that states are not forced to consider separation from this government,” he said. It would be such a pain in the neck to go through that whole secession thing again! ANNOYYYYYYYYYYING. Just vote, you lazy bums.

Tennessee Congressmen: Health Care Reform Is Uhh… Mexican Socialism Or Whatever

Rep. Zach Wamp of Tennessee, home state of America’s most comical people, says funny things for several minutes: “Listen, health care is a privilege… I was just about to finish to say, that for some people it’s a right, but for everyone, frankly, it’s not necessarily a right. Some people choose not to pay… How many illegal immigrants are in this country today, getting our health care? Gobs of ‘em… Socialism… Tax cuts.” [YouTube, Washington Monthly] Read more on Tennessee Congressmen: Health Care Reform Is Uhh… Mexican Socialism Or Whatever…
 

Wonk’d: A Soft, Moist, Shapeless Mass of Matter

Drunken stumblebum Joe Lieberman gets caught in the March madness, Chris Matthews reminds us how much he loves titties, Howard Dean sustains the planet, and the arrows you see are provided by a Wonkette operative who proves once again that Nicolas Cage has never met a shitty fucking awesome movie he didn’t want to be in. So, sit back, chill out, and wait for Wonk’d, which is coming directly. Read more on Wonk’d: A Soft, Moist, Shapeless Mass of Matter…
