Is Zach the new Don?
Politicians are something else and I don't mean that in a good way. This afternoon on Adam Kleinheider's blog in Nashville he reported about a fundraiser coming up next Monday in Huntsville, Al for Zach Wamp's campaign for Tennessee Governor. First off for a guy who has talked so much about creating and saving jobs in Tennessee. Its a little strange to have a fundraiser just across the stateline at a restaurant in Huntsville. Which by the way is experiencing good economic growth. Why not have it in a place like Pickwick,Selmer or Savannah at one of their "eating establishments" where their not experiencing any economic growth? The restaurants in those area's are really struggling to survive right now. They really could use the publicity from hosting a fundraiser. Another thing, is that one of the co-hosts for the event is a Congressman that most GOPers in north Alabama commonly referred to as Dr. Death up until he switched parties last month. Parker Griffith received a cold reception at a recent Madison County GOP meeting according to the good gentlemen over at flashpointblog.com and you pick him Zach to serve as one of your co-hosts? Mr Griffith was roundly attacked back in 2008 by GOPers for treatments that he gave cancer patients back in the 80's and like it or not once you look at the documents in that case. There is a good argument to be made that Mr Griffith gave excessive chemo to patients that didnt need it. I've said it before and I'll say it again. Zach Wamp reminds me so much of Don Sundquist and the news of this fundraiser today only reinforces that thought.
