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.
