I have no idea what Bill Hobbs did to Jeff Woods. I’m not a Native of Nashville–although living here for 18 years makes me the most permanent temporary resident around, it seems–and so I think I missed something from back in the day where Hobbs stole Woods’ Halloween candy.
Writing over at Pith (which I have grudgingly returned to reading online now that they made the good call to ‘hire’ my friend to write for them), Woods asks a seemingly innocuous question of the day.
I admit that is a good question. He’s ginned up a lot of press in his tenure there–both good and ‘bad’. Since I’m not a member of the TNGOP I consider his employment to be not my business in the long run, but in my opinion there’s really not such a thing as ‘bad’ press in politics. This would, of course, be why I left politics. But Hobbs didn’t, so what he does is on his head, I suppose.
The thing is that it is really super-tacky of The Scene to try to cost Hobbs yet another job.
I apologise for not linking to the fiasco, but feel free to let your fingers do the Googling. Just type in “Scene, Belmont, Hobbs, Muslim Cartoon”. You’ll have hours and hours of reading to do, culminating in the realisation that writers for the Scene were key players in the debacle that cost Hobbs his sweet ride at Belmont. For them to now slam another pike into the ground and ready it for his head makes it look like someone has a sick crush on Bill Hobbs.
I wish I knew why.
