Naifeh Believes State Attorney General Is Divine
The Tennessee Health Freedom Act is stalled in committee because the Attorney General of Tennessee writeth upon the stone tablets:
It may be true, of course, that some federal court will take it upon themselves to intrude into Tennessee's internal affairs by telling us that we must fall in line like lemmings and support the President's health care boondoggle. Until such time, however, it has already been established that the legal opinions of the Tennessee Attorney General have about as much force of law as anything I might write in this space. Indeed, the opinions of the Attorney General are worth about as much in law as a broom is worth without a handle. The people of Knox and Shelby County are well aware of how worthless it is to assume that the Attorney General's opinion has any value beyond his or her office door. Since the Attorney General's opinions have previously been proven to be just that in the eyes of present law, why should this State continue to make law based solely upon those opinions?
