1. NOT SO CLEVER

    Tn. Senator Compares Democrats to Nazis

    Tennessee state Senator Stacey Campfield has a Blogspot blog called Camp4u where he posts thoughts of the day. Monday morning, "The Sen.," as he refers to himself on the blog, posted this gem: "Democrats bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for Obamacare is like the German's bragging about the number of mandatory sign ups for 'train rides' for Jews in the 40s." Comments like these are kind of Campfield's thing; he's compared homosexuality to bestiality and made a very tone deaf joke about Democrats and pressure cookers shortly after the Boston Marathon bombings, for example. Tennessee Republican Party chairman Chris Devaney acknowledged this reputation when denouncing Campfield's latest crass comment. "No political or policy disagreement should ever be compared to the suffering endured by an entire generation of people," Devaney told reporters. "Those comments have no place in our public discourse. He should offer an apology to members of the Jewish faith immediately."
