Lamar! Fights the White House

Lamar Alexander often does things that will get conservatives' goats. So why do we in Tennessee still love Lamar?

The reason is that for every time he does something to make Tennessee conservatives just plain mad, he will turn around and hit the nail right on the head, and usually at a time when it is most needed.

Lamar may not be the ideological fireeater that I often am, nor is he always as consumed with the scuttling of government largesse in the way that my good friend Stacey Campfield is, just to point out a couple of examples. Do we sometimes wish that Lamar were more concerned with those things in a public way? Yes, but we also know that when Lamar really needs to take a stand for the good of Tennessee and the Union, Lamar will do just that.

We love Lamar! for the same reason we love 1500-calorie Hardee's triple burgers - we're fucking stupid, at least every Tennessean who votes for a Republican. Lamar! has become the biggest embarrassment to Tennessee in the last 20 years. A guy who used to be a pragmatic centrist (gasp! even a liberal Republican) who now can't suck enough neo-con dick. He's like a former alcoholic who can't resist telling everyone that they are going to hell for the same things he did for years. Sad thing is, I don't think he believes a word that he says these days (but what sane person would? - and yes, Dave, that's directed at your pinwheel of a brain).
