CHARLIE MITCHELL: Oxford’s Rep. Hughes updates role of fly in the ointment

State Rep. Jay Hughes could introduce a bill next session to declare sweet tea the state beverage and it wouldn’t make it out of committee.

Why?

Because the first-term Democrat from Oxford tugged on Superman’s cape.

Not only did he decline to join the go-along to get-along game, he took to this “new thang” (social media) to give his constituents the inside story.

He will be ostracized.
