All the Shaws in Shawville
Since Boliver Democratic Rep. Johnny Shaw hates George W. Bush, I thought I'd share a piece of Shaw's strange little world:
Good to know Johnny Shaw is such a hater. Shaw is almost as bad as Sam Venable in his latest discreditable diatribe against State Rep. Stacey Campfield in the Knoxville News-Sentinel. Johnny Shaw has a history of making strange statements and he can get away with it because his district is hyper-gerrymandered to insure that he is re-elected over and over again in spite of himself. He thinks that it is better for the State of Tennessee to waste millions of dollars on a party bunker at the Governor's mansion than to build prisons and lock up child predators. He once told Rep. Bill Dunn that the House Agriculture Committee "did not need to provide" Dunn with needed information about the impact of education funding from Governor Phil Bredesen's then-proposed tobacco tax overhaul.
