The state's Jacobins, er, I mean Tea Partiers, are demanding that the Senior Senator call it quits and let someone more conservative have the seat.
In an open letter that J.R. Lind has over at Post Politics, they note that his ability to work with others is what's destroying America right now …
During your tenure in the Senate we have no doubt that you voted in a way which you felt was appropriate. Unfortunately, our great nation can no longer afford compromise and bipartisanship, two traits for which you have become famous. America faces serious challenges and needs policymakers who will defend conservative values, not work with those who are actively undermining those values. Quite honestly, your voting record shows that you do not represent the conservative values that we hold dear and the votes you have cast as Senator are intolerable to us. Furthermore we have serious doubts about your ability to fix our problems since you have played such a significant role in creating them.
I'm just glad that, unlike last year's full-page print ads warning of that fox-in-the-chicken-coop Samar Ali — the ones that made demands of that noted RINO Bill Haslam — at least they spelled all the counties right this time.
