Ok..since you asked...

Some who read this blog (btw, if you read this blog you should consider other hobbies to entertain yourself) have asked me off line why I care a lick about the Mae Beavers - Bob Rochelle state senate race now in full bloom (see my earlier posts about Angry Beavers).
There have actually been FOUR reasons why I care about the 17th Senatorial District race:
1. I am a graduate of Watertown High...yup...a Wilson Countian...not by birth but by pedigree
2. I used to work at Lebanon's WCOR radio station...yup...gospel DJ while going to MTSU...obviously they didn't bother to do background checks on religious broadcasters in those days
3. I still have family scattered about Wilson County and they keep me posted from time to time on what's up in political circles
4. I love politics in general
Now I have a FIFTH reason:
A right wing blogger named Mark Rose has become the open wide Beavers mouth in the proverbial blogsphere and this week has begun pushing out bogus "internal polling #s" from the Beavers camp that he claims shows Beavers ahead in the race.
Rose opens wider by saying that because the Rochelle camp won't share their internal polling #s with him, that proves that Beavers is ahead and Rochelle is desperate.
Yea, right.
Let's see class...anyone care to weigh in on why they think Rochelle's camp should share internal strategic information with a right winger blogger who is a self-professed "hack" for Beavers?
I'll go out on a limb here and make some bold assumptions.
No matter how loud Rose screams for Rochelle's camp to dilvulge strategy and internal info to him, Rochelle's camp will not listen to or oblige him.
No matter how loud Rose screams that their refusal to do so sends a message to voters that Rochelle is losing, Rochelle's camp will still not listen to or oblige him.
My bet is that Bob Rochelle is going to continue to run his campaign on his terms and not let the Angry Beavers posse run it for him.
But hey, what do I know?

And yet he will still lose because of his history of pushing for the income tax. He would have lost 65-35 four years ago, and it won't be much closer this time.

Bill,

Do you assume everyone obsesses over the highly unlikely prospect of a State Income tax, like you do?
