I'm proud to have such a hardcore conservative as my State Representative:
Georgiana Vines has stirred a tempest in a teapot by bringing up the fact that-perish the thought-State Representative Frank Niceley referred to Tennessee House Speaker-designate Beth Harwell as "a good lookin' woman." What Niceley actually said to Harwell was a number of years ago was "what you've got going for you is you're good lookin' but women don't hate you." Niceley is not only this writer's State Representative, but is a personal friend and a friend of the work done in this space, and one of the reasons Niceley is consistently re-elected with such large majorities is that unlike many people in politics, there is little to nothing that is phony or a false front about Frank Niceley. He tells you the truth as he sees it, and if you don't like it you don't have to like him. "You might as well be straight with people," Niceley once told this writer, "because there are just some people in politics who aren't going to like you no matter what you do."
