While I know it's misleading, I'd like to point out that Georgia is a coastal state while Tennessee is landlocked.
Seriously, what gives? Isn't "We're talking about augmenting some water needs, and as you know, the Tennessee has got plenty of water in it" a little bit socialist for a Republican from a Southern state?
Then again, I support retroceding the District of Columbia to Maryland, consolidating Connecticut and Rhode Island, Delaware and either Maryland or Pennsylvania, North and South Dakota, and perhaps North and South Carolina, so perhaps I'm in the minority. Despite its illegal secession, however, I'm fine with West Virginia staying as it is (unless it wants to merge with Ohio or Kentucky, which I'm also okay with).
