Well both did put forth 'Toxic' ideas

by Jeremy Hooper

Stacy-CampYou might remember Tennessee State Representative Stacey Campfield (Very Far R-Knoxville) as the guy who, over the past couple of years, has tried to ban the word "gay" from public schools. It is the very kind of attention-grabbing antic that has led Tennessean columnist Gail Kerr to brand Mr. Campfield "the Britney Spears of state government (Oops! He did it again!)":

State Rep. Stacey Campfield, the Britney Spears of state government (Oops! He did it again!) was tossed out of a UT football game on Halloween, according to news reports this week. The story of what happened is bizarre, as are most things Campfield.

You can bet on this: He'll blame the media. His wacky actions are never his doing, you see, but always that of his oppressors. Except when he is craving attention. Then you can't shut him up.

Campfield should blame himself for bizarre antics [Tennessean]

Funny. Although we have to say that when he was suggesting an all-out ban on "gay" in Tennessee schools, our first thought wasn't Britney. Anita Bryant or Pat Boone, maybe.

It remains to be seen if Campfield will respond to Kerr's poppy charge. Though if Kerr is right, don't expect his to perform the response live.
