Political Chili

The Knoxville News-Sentinel has felt the need for the past week to push Mike Padgett's annual chili supper as some sort of bipartisan lovefest instead of the Democratic fundraiser that it actually is. This is from the story on last night's event:

"Although Padgett is a Democrat, the event is stridently bipartisan and Republicans outnumbered Democrats by a hefty margin. Among them was state Sen. Tim Burchett of Knoxville, who said he came for 'food, fellowship and because Mike asked me.'"

No word yet on whether Burchett was counted as one of the Democrats or the Republicans.

MORE: It should be noted that, according to my latest records, Mike Padgett is running unopposed for his County Clerk position. That sparks the question as to what purpose the money that all of the "Republicans" just poured into Padgett's coffers is going to be used for. It boggles the mind...
