Mike McWherter (D-TN) has decided the best way to be elected as governor in Tennessee is to run as a Republican. Not only that, the Democratic candidate for Tennessee Governor has decided to court the teabag vote as well:
The Wingnut Expressway is the road to nowhere.
The Baggers may not like Socialist Strongmen in Scary Powerful Countries like Venezuela (wherever that is). This is true. Hugo Chavez is really scary and speaks a funny sounding foreign language of some sort. Scary.
However, if McWherter really wants the Teabag vote, he'll have to start bashing the Murfreesboro Islamic Center and the law abiding folks living there. Teabaggers really love that shit.
Presumably next up would be to bring in the Mad Mullahs of Iran and not just make a lame reference that your opponent is linked to companies that do business in Iran. If he is gonna win Teabagger vote he'll have to truly go full metal wingnut. This tea is too weak. McWherter will need ads with dark imagery showing Haslam's face morphing into Ahmadinejad or worse. Teabaggers are sure to love that shit, too.
Of course if he does all these things, he will still lose. And then beaten and disgraced, he might need to switch parties. On the other hand, McWherter could try a more novel approach: he could run as an actual Democrat.
Just my thoughts.
