Lamar Alexander, a longtime conservative fixture in the GOP from Tennessee apparently can no longer remain in his party’s leadership. The Right Wing heat is up so high so that unless a pol has a total mental block against compromise, like Cantor et al, he cannot possibly lead his party. In other words you may not function unless you are dysfunctional. In a nutty-shell, our political morass. Who would have thought Alexander would be the molting canary in the tar-sands-mine? TIMES PIECE HERE.
