As the New Year kicks off and the Tennessee General Assembly gets ready to convene on January 14, a member of our state’s legislature — one, moreover, who has often figured in our pages — has been singled out for, er, honors by a national website.

The website is wonkette.com, and they have seen fit to bestow on state Senator Stacey Campfield (R-Knoxville), the award entitled “S***muffin of the Year.”

The soon-to-be-annual award, say the editors of Wonkette, is their inaugural one, and it goes to Senator Campfield (who inspired their creation of it, they say) “for outstanding achievement in the field of trying to make life miserable for the people of Tennessee.”

Read more of their reasoning here and here.
