    The title of this article is severely misleading, bordering on lying. There are 95 counties in TN, and just because the most backwoods 9 county chapters of the GOP are circulating resolutions condemning governor Haslam does not mean the TN party itself (as the article clearly sates) has an issue with what he's done. Less than 10% of the chapters in the state feel that way, and it's wrong to extrapolate from their absurd views and attribute such a medeival outlook on others who clearly don't share it.

    Further, the 9 chapters in question were circulating resolutions condemning him for "various issues, some including not firing an openly gay staffer..."; out of those 9, some of them did not even list the gay staffer as an issue- which is the whole basis for the sensationalism of this article.
