Our State House passed the anti-gay marriage amendment to the Tennessee Constitution today by a whisker, 96-7. That's how many reasonable people there are in that circus. It will be on the ballot next year. Same-sex marriage is already against the law here, so I suppose I agree with Tennessean columnist Larry Daughtrey who speculated the legislature is aiming its efforts at those heady criminals who--though they wouldn't think of breaking a law--would never dare break a constitution.
Only 2 Nashville reps. were among the 7: Rob Briley and Janis Sontany.
This can't be good news for Harold Ford. But not unexpected.
