BREAKING: Senator Tim Burchett Leaves the Republican Party
“The only other thing I can figure is that no one wants to come to their
boring chicken dinner, so they did this to try and stir up some interest.”
"Their?" Excuse me, Senator, but isn't this "boring chicken dinner" going to benefit the Tennessee Republican Party? The Republican Party that has supported you in the past and is at least in some fashion responsible for your current position? Talk about biting the hand that feeds you...
The only way that I can take this quote is to surmise that you are no longer a member of the Republican Party.
I guess Tim Burchett has switched party allegiances and has embraced the party that survives on failure and disaster. That should be appropriate, since any Democrat running for Mayor of Knox County (as Timmy B. has been rumored to be an emerging candidate) would see their campaign met with failure and disaster.
Of course, he could join the Independent Caucus. Anyone have any idea which NASCAR driver Tim Burchett could impersonate?
I may not agree with the decision to close the doors to the media at the Statesman's Dinner, but, then again, I didn't shoot my mouth off about it, either. You can disagree with the TN GOP's decision, but you don't have to be a jerk about it.
