Ramsey Not Sure What "Muslim" Is

Posted By on Mon, Jul 26, 2010 at 1:21 PM

GOP gubernatorial candidate Ron Ramsey says he isn't sure about whether "Muslim" is a religion, a way of life, a nationality, or a cult, but apparently he damn sure doesn't want them folks building mosques in Tennessee and ignoring our constitution in favor of "Sharia" law.

I wish I was making this up, but read it for yourself. Go ahead, I'll wait here.

Paul R. Goode and Ron Ramsey R Dumb?

In a primary where each of the three Republican candidates seems to be in a race to determine who can appeal to the stupidest voters fastest, Ramsey has put himself back in front. Just last week, Zack Wamp muttered something about "secession" from the U.S., a la Texas governor Rick Perry, but has rapidly back-tracked, assuring us all that he loves the good ol' USA. And even (the theoretically more centrist) BIll Haslam has jumped in on the redneck voter roundup with attack ads aimed at Wamp and defending his right-wing, gun-loving, immigrant-hatin' bona fides.

Seriously, how many mouth-breathing droolies ARE there in Tennessee, that these three are fighting so hard to appear to the basest instincts of the least sophisticated voters? Tennessee appears well on its way to being the most "Fox-ified" state in the union. I'm so proud.
