TN Governor takes a righteous stand against...clerical errors?!
Jim Bryson (pic.), the Tennessee Republican who's trying to unseat longtime Democratic governor Phil Bredesen in the state's November election, is reportedly criticizing the incumbent for not signing a proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage. So what's Bredesen's big comeback for not signing the measure?
Marriage bans are deeply offensive and go against everything the Dems (should) stand for?
He knows history will smile unfavorably on all marriage amendment supporters and doesn't want his gubernatorial legacy tarnished by offensive, divisive right-wing ploys?
He understands that legislating morality, especially when it goes so far as amend the state's most precious governing document, is unconstitutional?
..unfortunately, no. It's merely "clerical error" that Bredesen cites as reason for his non-placement of pen on offensive paper. Moreover, he indicates he will vote for the gay marriage ban when it tarnishes the state's ballots this November.
Though when that inevitable wave of administrative task-aphobia sweeps through the Dolly's home state, it's nice to know that Bredesen will be the first on board to use the long-demonized office workers as election year scapegoats. Damn secretaries!
