Welcome to the June 16, 2008 edition of carnival of local political gaffes. This is the first edition of the carnival, and there wasn’t much notice for submission, so contributions were light overall, but there is plenty of great stuff here, at least if you live in Tennessee.
Christian Grantham presents:
Mt. Pleasant Commissioner charged in brawl at City Hall–“Now calm down, Bobby! Calm down.”
Another drunk Tennessee politician puts lives in danger–“If you’re under federal investigation for perscription fraud, don’t show up drunk down to the FedEx hootin’ and a hollering over a lost package of pharmacueticals.”
Rep. Rob Briley threatens and blames the media–“He clearly hasn’t even gotten past the first step in his 12 steps out of the drunken hell he’s inflicted on the rest of us.”
TN House Majority Leader Gary Odom to get hitched–“He’s older than her parents, and she’s younger than his children, but at least the 56 year old House Majority Leader waited for the Capitol Hill intern and beauty queen to turn 24 before marrying her.”
So next week should be a little more extensive with submissions outside of TN as well. Submit your blog article to the next edition of carnival of local political gaffes. To submit an article just click here. Submissions are due by Sunday.
