50-49 Really Isn't That Much Of A Majority... has been proved by the Tennessee House of Representatives, which despite its 50-49 GOP majority somehow allowed the Democrats to choose a moderate Republican speaker over the GOP's favored right-wing candidate. The speaker pro tem is a Democrat. Heaven only knows what the committee assignments are going to look like, since the Speaker gets to choose those and he's not exactly winning any popularity contests among the Tennessee Republicans nowadays.

Politics: more amusement than you ever thought possible.
