I read over at Joe Powell’s this nonsense about how the investment advice given to small Tennessee communities by Morgan Keegan is going to wipe them out. This is bad enough, but I invite you to ponder this:
In Lewisburg, after Mr. Overman pitched the swap idea for the sewer project, Kenneth E. Carr, a city official, attended the class. “The seminar was dull and boring,” said Mr. Carr, who still has a copy of the book, stamped with the state seal of Tennessee on every page. “I thought, ‘Well, this is approved by the state because they put their seal of approval on it.” [emphasis mine]
Hmm. Who’s running this motherfucking state right now? So, who is ultimately responsible for this?
But, yeah, let’s continue to fight about how the Democrats farted sunshine back before Chip Forrester ruined it all.
Did Chip Forrester give free reign to Morgan Keegan? Or is this Jennifer Buck Wallace’s fault, somehow?
Or are we going to take a step back and admit that our problems run deeper than that?
Edited to add: Andy’ll make you sicker, if you like.
