Ever the political hopeful and desperate for Media blessings/attention U.S. Senator candidate Van Hilleary vows to debate Jane Fonda. Poor Van must have been sure that a plan to debate Jane would push him to the forefront of the ......(snicker) ....(cough) ... oh I can't do this with a straight face. What in the Sam Hill is he doing?? Imploding? I met Van many years ago and have had many interviews with him, seen him work the crowds, etc. But during his failed run a governor of TN, I noticed how he seemed ...well, desperate.
And poor Jane, too. Even a movie with J-Lo and an autobigraphy that admits, yes, she's been kinda wacky, can't seem to bring Media Satisfaction and so she is planning on a "tour" on a bus that runs on vegetable oil. WHO writes this stuff?? Ends up making Sen. (I'm A Doctor, Really!) Frist seem almost normal.
All the Tennessee leftovers that have been served up for the U.S. Senate make ya wonder if we have politicial leadership or just another casting call for "Dukes of Hazzard." There ya go, Van - Debate Johnny Knoxville!! Debate Jessica Simpson!! Get a guest spot on the "O.C."!! Cut a duet with Dolly Parton!!!
9 out of 10 Tennessee residents have no idea who is running for U.S. Senate. So even a crumb of attention must seem like a banquet.
