Tennessee - Is there something in the (dammed-up) water?

Following on the secessionist heels of Zach Wamp, and not to be outdone, fellow Republican-primary candidate for governor, Ron Ramsey, has now opined that Islam isn't really a religion...it's more of a cult.

Atta boy, Ron!  That oughta put some pepper in the pitches our men and woman have coming at them in Iraq and Afghanistan...well done!

Seriously, who allows these yahoos to walk around on the street, let alone run for public office?  Oh, ha ha, that's right...the Republicans do.

By the way, check out this picture of Ron:

That flag to the right of Old Glory is the Tennessee State Flag.

I don't know about the rest of "y'all", but this particular state flag design has always bothered me.  This is what Wikipedia has to say about the design.  Sounds reasonable enough, right?
