Controlled opposition

ABC NewsOutgoing Republican Sen. Bob Corker of Tennessee is sticking by his decision not to campaign against the Democrat seeking to fill his seat.

Corker says he considers the Democrat, former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen (BRED'-uh-sen), a "friend." Corker backs Republican Rep. Marsha Blackburn but says he won't oppose Bredesen.

Until the Tea Party, and eventually Trump, we did not have two parties. We have one party with two faces. One "party" moved their agenda forward. The other "party" did nothing. Gradually people caught on and started to insist their "party" actually do something to advance their policies when in power. Enough politicians were elected on those promises to take the House, and then the Senate, but still nothing was done.

That's how we got Trump.

It appears the GOPe wants more Trump.

ABC NewsThe Washington Post reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell had privately told Corker that his friendly comments about Bredesen risked Republicans' ability to hold their majority in the November elections. Republicans hold a slim 51-49 advantage in the Senate.

Asked why Blackburn is a better candidate, Corker responded: "I think most people in our state ... will focus on the first vote she makes, and that's the vote to elect the majority leader."

That's right from his damn fool mouth -- policies don't matter, only which person gets to hand out the goods.
