Tennessee, which appears to be giving South Carolina a serious run for the title of Wingnut Central, is now at the forefront of one of the tea party's more peculiar pet rocks: repealing the 17th Amendment, by hook or by crook.This is always a great debate to have. Texas, though it clearly has the most wingnuts, can't quite be the wingnuttiest state, primarily because the mayors of the four largest cities here (which happen to be four of the biggest 13 cities in the US) -- are all Democrats. And yeah, there's Austin.
Tennessee is a very strong contender, but for my money, South Carolina is always #1. Everyone else is just fighting for second place.
