Sen. Lamar Alexander’s (R-Tennessee) chief of staff, Ryan Loskarn, has been placed on leave without pay over allegations involving child pornography. Another “family values” guy bites the dust.
Tennessee Tea Party/conservative groups sent a Tony Soprano-style letter to Sen. Lamar Alexander telling him to retire or be primaried for the unpardonable sins of — gasp — compromise and bipartisanship.
The letter states: “Unfortunately our great nation can no longer afford compromise and bipartisanship, two traits for which you have become famous.” Sounds like something Lenin or Stalin would have said before having some poor bastard shot.
Alexander is a very conservative Republican, he’s no RINO, he’s no Rockefeller Republican. Anyone to his right would have to be way past Conservative Street and far along Crazy Avenue.
