In Which I Roll My Eyes

Listen, an income tax might be the most unpopular thing in Tennessee since allowing babies to butter moldy bread with sharp knives, but that doesn’t mean it’s a stupid idea. There are good reasons for enacting one and very good reasons for not enacting one (I know that may seem surprising, coming from me, but I actually do think that the chances of the state legislature enacting an income tax and keeping the sales tax near 10% is probably pretty damn likely. I don’t trust them not to.).

But that doesn’t mean it’s a stupid idea.  Just politically unpopular.

So, it really makes me roll my eyes to see Democrats try to make political hay out of opposing the income tax.

I know I’m just burnt out, but I’m so damn tired of everything the political parties in this state do being so damn… political. I mean, seriously, it’s like folks have forgotten that this is supposed to be about doing what’s best for the state, not about whose team wins, no matter what the tactics.

  1. I’m with you. Nothing frustrates me more about Democrats in Tennessee (except, perhaps, for everything that Mike McWherter has said about the ICM).
