Happy Hour: Raining On Our Parade

  • Well guys, with 57.7% of the city tuning into last night’s debate, we’d say we won. [Tennessean]
  • Even some country stars got in on the action! [WTVF]
  • Speaking of that, as promised, we managed to dig up the disastrous video footage of John Rich performing a rousing rendition of “Raisin’ McCain” on the CBS Early Show in a crowd of Obama supporters. Bonus points for anyone who can spot the Nashvillest editor. [YouTube]
  • And we got almost 3 inches of rain in the past 24 hours after months and months of drought. [Nashville WX]
  • I-65 has become the first biofuels corridor in the country, and though we’re not entirely sure what that means, they say that we can now drive the entire 886 on alternative fuels if the mood strikes. [WSMV]
  • BREAKING: The Nolensville Walmart has finally added valet parking. We must go there. [WSMV]
  • Metro has determined that someone actually lit Mario’s on fire. On purpose. [WKRN]
  • On a happier note still, our health care costs rose at five times the rate of our incomes in Tennessee. [WSMV]
