Epic Fail

The Important Issues

The Tennessee House of Representatives is tackling the tough decisions of our time, and by that I mean whether or not Peyton Manning will join the Tennessee Titans.

Hopefully you weren't expecting a discussion of student debt, jobs, healthcare, or the environment.

CHATTANOOGA - (WRCB/AP) – Lawmakers in Tennessee are voicing their support for the possibility of Peyton Manning becoming a Tennessee Titan.

Thursday morning State Representative Jeremy Faison (R-Cosby) introduced House Joint Resolution 785, a bill supporting the Tennessee Titans recruiting the four-time NFL MVP.

The bill states "we know that Peyton is still proud to be a Volunteer and longs in his heart to return to Tennessee as the quarterback for the Titans, a match truly made in Heaven." [...]

The legislature aren't the only lawmakers trying to help with the recruiting process. Titans owner Bud Adams told NBC Nashville Wednesday that Governor Bill Haslam called Manning during his seven hour visit with the team.

I suppose in some sense recruiting Peyton Manning could be viewed as a campaign for economic stimulus, at least for the Nashville area.
