Lamar Stands Zero Chance of Losing...Sucks Up To Crazy People Anyway

It's OK now to just lie straight out if you are a Republican. Who's going to call you on it? I mean since "news" organizations don't do news anymore I guess it's up to bloggers to do facts and things...
Seeking to fend off a rabid (if feckless) tea-party primary opponent, Sen. Lamar Alexander has been warming up for 2014 by rebranding himself as hostile to the kind of pragmatic moderation that once framed his centrist political persona. With an op-ed in the Washington Post late last week assailing the move by Senate Democrats to do away with the filbuster on executive and judicial nominations, Alexander demonstrates he is also working hard to rebrand himself as hostile to facts and reality. The Post piece is a model of intellectual dishonesty.
Bruce Barry maybe?

    Listen to the lies, the FOX watchers, racists, bible toters all day……and you'll go crazy.
    THEN there was the Big Black Ollie North bus at Costco Saturday, with all the oleo white folks lining up to have him scribble on their 4 or 5 copies (for Christmas gifts I guess). Disheartening, to say the least.
