All Tennessee Adults Eligible for COVID-19 Vaccination by April 5

I just saw this today. Sort of explains why I got my surprise email last Thursday telling me I could schedule my appointment. This is good news. If you haven't registered, go to vaccinate.tn.gov to register. You'll get an email confirming your registration and then another one as soon as you're eligible.


NASHVILLE – Tennessee Governor Bill Lee today announced all Tennessee adults will be eligible for COVID-19 vaccination no later than April 5. Tennesseans aged 55 and older and those in Phase 2 of the state’s COVID-19 Vaccination Plan are eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations effective Mar. 18.

Here's my letter from Marsha Blackburn. Have at it, DUers.

I wrote to her after the impeachment trial to tell her she voted the wrong way. This is her reply:

March 4, 2021

Dear xxxx,

Thank you for contacting me regarding the second impeachment of Donald Trump, and for providing me the opportunity to respond to your question. Having a conversation on issues that affect Tennesseans is an important part of my work to represent you.

On February 13, 2021, I voted to acquit Donald Trump of the charge laid out in the article of impeachment by the House of Representatives. In regards to this vote, I had serious constitutional concerns with an impeachment trial of a former president, as well as the unacceptably rushed process by the House of Representatives in drafting and voting on the article of impeachment. Additionally, my decision for acquittal was reinforced by the ambiguity of the charge, which failed to include a specific criminal code that had allegedly been violated.

The Constitution makes clear: "The President, Vice President, and all Civil Officers of the United States, shall be removed from Office on Impeachment for, and Conviction of, Treason, Bribery, or other high Crimes and Misdemeanors". The House impeachment managers failed to meet this clear standard, and the full Senate found Donald Trump not guilty.

Rather than proceeding with an unconstitutional trial, the Senate's time would have been better spent debating targeted COVID-19 relief for struggling small businesses and families. I appreciate your thoughtful comments and am hopeful you will continue to contact my office on issues of concern to you. Please know that I value your input as the Senate turns to other matters affecting the lives of Tennesseans and the American people.

Again, thank you for taking the time to contact me. If you would like regular updates on my work for Tennessee, please sign up for my weekly newsletter or follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.


Marsha Blackburn
United States Senator

Am I in the Twilight Zone? I sort of remember that a bunch of constitutional scholars said that not only was it constitutional, but there was precedence. Her degree is in Home Economics. Yet she's somehow more informed than lawyers who have studied this issue. I am so sick and tired of these hypocrites.

You know damn well that no Democratic president could have gotten through the first day with some of the bullshit MF45 got away with, and they continue to kiss his ass.

Meanwhile, the shit about Covid-19 relief ... when they refuse to do anything to help people???? Do they really think we're that stupid? Well, in TN, apparently we are because the majority elected her.
