Mike Huckabee wants to move the federal government to Nashville because of George Jones

What hath the Possum wrought?

From the NBJ:

"And as I listened to the music, saw the camaraderie of those who made the music, and observed the approval of those who had made sacrifices to pay for the tickets to be in the seats, it occurred to me that fixing Washington probably won't happen," Huckabee said. "They don’t want it fixed."

So I’ve decided the solution isn’t to reform Washington; it’s to abandon it," Huckabee said, according to a transcript on his website. "Tell the entire government they are fired and move the new government of the people, by the people, and for the people to where the people gather to act like responsible adults act -- make Nashville the capitol.

"It’s in the center of the country and easier to get to; it's an amazingly hospitable place and a place that has never depended on government to save them. When a devastating flood in 2010 all but baptized the entire city, the people of Nashville helped each other and didn’t wait on the government to save them. Like neighbors helping neighbors rebuild the barn, the people of Nashville acted like Americans -- responsible, resourceful and resilient."
