What An Arrogant Thing Bob Corker Did. Shame on Him.

The old white guys in the Senate always try to stop women and minority conservatives from joining the institution.

Bob Corker has decided that Marsha Blackburn should not be in the Senate. The result is Corker now trying to sabotage her bid. He is telling people that she cannot win and has media and party allies doing the same.

According to Corker, only Corker can win the Senate. This is ridiculous.

Time and time again, the GOP old white guy establishment does its best to shut out the women and minority conservatives who would expose the old white guys as the moderate and liberal Republicans they are.

Blackburn is heads and tails better than Corker and would be a viable candidate, but Corker is trying to sabotage her. Shame on him.

I would love to agree with you, but Democrats do love to crossover vote in open primaries to get the right person to beat. Trump is the only example I can think of where it backfired on them. Corker likely thought he had a chance in getting the nod for governor, and that fell through. Corker got elected because he looked slightly better than a Ford from Memphis. Now, I imagine he looks even less slightly better.

Why is there no context to this piece? No explanation of what Corker did?

myeh. Corker would go down in the race against Bredesen. So would Blackburn. Maybe try someone else.

It's good that Corker is leaving. Good riddance.

I think this has little to do with sexism, and more to do with McConnell and Company doing what they always do... protecting the incumbency of the inner circle. Quite honestly, I don't think there's a significant difference between the two to begin with.
