Tennessee State Rep. Rob Briley is *not quite* an asshole

Update: Good:

State Rep. Rob Briley has withdrawn his anti-blogger legislation

Update: Says Briley:

It was never my intent to file this legislation. It originated in the Senate and was brought to me by a Senator to see if I would consider filing it. While reviewing a number of bills that I had been asked to review, this particular bill was inadvertently placed among those that I had agreed to and intended to file.

So, you willy-nilly introduce bills by mistake, likely without reading them? I’m glad the process of passing laws that affect us all is such a finely tuned, efficient process with adequate controls.

Is that libel?

Update: Aunt B. wants to know why he hates blogs.

Update 2: AC:

I’m not a big one for letter writing activism but you might want to give Big Rob a shout and tell him to take down his bill and apologize.

And, see, I can show restraint. The original title of this post was (foul language warning)

Tennessee State Rep. Rob Briley is a testicle-shitting cum-bubble

But, I toned it down a bit. I miss South Park. But, seriously, asshole is the clean version?

    Is there something in the water cooler at the State Capital? Why all of the insane bills?

    He’s not just an asshole, looks like he’s a liar too. Unless you buy the idea that a LAWYER would “mistakenly” affix his signature to a document.

    So I guess there are two possibilities: Either he’s a liar or a blatant moron. Either way, what the heck is he doing representing Nashville. Are they THAT hard up for representatives? Surely there’s a Janitor or Sanitation worker somewhere in the city that would be willing to take the job.

    I apologize if any Janitors or Sanitation workers consider that last statement to be defamatory.

    The original bill was introduced by none other than Knoxville’s own Jamie Woodson.

    Given that the bill is unconstitutional on its face and these men have sworn an oath to uphold the constitution, haven’t they violated their oath by introducing it?

    Remember when Tim Burchett sponsored a bill that said you would have to have a college degree to be a County Executive Mayor and then said he did that so no one else could sponsor the same legislation? So he could control it?

    Maybe Jamie and Rob took a page from that playbook? Or maybe they just got caught? Makes you also wonder about Tim.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
