Division among Dems: Legislative leaders can't settle on spirit animal

Chas reporting from a press conference:

“A grizzly bear can take a porcupine out anytime he wants to, but usually he goes around it,” said Rep. Mike Turner, D-Old Hickory, the House Democratic Caucus chairman. “We’re not just going to sit there and roll over, and when something needs to be done for the people of Tennessee, we’re going defend those values and we’re going to defend our position.”

“I like wolverine better than porcupine,” Democratic Leader Craig Fitzhugh, D-Ripley, interjected.

“Well, now honey badger is kind of popular too,” Turner replied.
