Levin's new bete-noire

Mark Levin slams Bob Corker for arguing against "repeal and replace" on health care.

"Now I've talked about Lindsey Graham in the past, and I'm not talking about him right now. We already know he's a loser. We already know he can't be counted on. We already know he thinks this is a big game.

But there's a so-called moderate Republican from Tennessee who bought his seat and defeated two conservatives in the primary.... and his name is Bob Corker.

.... the guy's already surrendered.... I can see this guy, Corker, you know, at the constitutional convention. Better yet, I can see him when they're debating the Declaration of Independence.

[imitating] 'But we're not going to be able to get rid of the British, and we just gotta work with them. We gotta address those issues that we can fix.... we can't get rid of them. That's not just going to happen, okay'?"

Corker does, indeed, have a relatively independent voting record.

A CQ Politics study on Senator voting records in 2009 showed Corker voting with his party 84% of the time which put him in Orrin Hatch territory (as contrast, John McCain voted with his party 96% of the time, John Thune 98% of the time, and Jon Kyl 94% of the time).
