Despite Latest Spinelessness, Lamar Still Trails Corker as Political Wuss

Sen. Lamar Alexander, in this interview, refuses to repudiate any element of the tea party movement, including the John Birch Society. (H/t Kleinheider.) "I really don't know how to answer a question like that," Alexander says. That's our Lamar!

We were about to launch into a tirade against Alexander for kowtowing to the obsessed and deranged, but then we remembered: For political cowardice in dealing with truthers and birthers and tin-foil hatters, there's no topping Bob Corker.

Recall that our junior senator went on Hardball and refused under questioning from Chris Matthews to take a stand on whether our president is legitimate. Corker said variously that "it appears to me that our president is a citizen" and "it looks to me like he's a citizen."

Then at a town maul on health care, he wouldn't contradict a woman who observed the president thinks white people are terrorists, and "you could very well end up on a list for a mandatory abortion."

So just FYI, if you're keeping score at home, Alexander's still got some catching up to do with Corker.
