George Takei rocks like three geology conventions and a moderate moutain range  
With thanks to filkertom for the link.

As you may know, my current state of residence is plagued with a General Assembly member by the name of Stacey Campfield, whose current inanity is the "Don't Say Gay" bill. This would prevent teachers in kindergarten through eighth grade from even mentioning that homosexuality exists.

George Takei, who rocks like three geology conventions and a moderate mountain range, has tweeted to offer a solution to teachers:

TN bill will prevent teachers from using the word "gay" in class. In response, I'm lending them my name: "It's okay to be Takei."

I am almost inclined to get a Twitter account for the sole purpose of retweeting this.

I don't know if "plagued" is the right work. I followed some links from the one you posted and quickly found http://www.knoxnews.com/news/2011/apr/07/letters-campfield-embarrasses-state-and-residents/

The comments in that make me sick to be human. I think the state has got the senator it deserves.

From my point of view, he's a plague.

The problem is that senators, bad as well as good, affect all of us. Some Tenneseeans may deserve him, but what has Michigan done to you?
