When Lamar Alexander joined 13 other Senate Republicans to vote for the Gang of Eight’s immigration bill last month, he was waving a red flag in front of the tea party.

Attending a rally in Smyrna, Tenn., last weekend, Alexander was greeted by a crowd of about 300 conservative activists — organizers said — wearing bright red T-shirts that read “Beat Lamar” in big bold letters. They held signs that blared: “You betrayed us” and “No more RINOs. Conservatives only.”

And to drive their point home, the activists lugged around a rhino mascot dubbed “Lamar.”

“I didn’t hear anything they said; they were a mile away,” Alexander told POLITICO. “They were enjoying their First Amendment rights, and I was enjoying playing ‘Johnny B. Goode’ with Mike Huckabee.” [More]

Maybe he doesn't realize they have the vote? Here's a picture of some of the protesters from a local paper:

It's Time, Lamar: Retire!

And here's a video, produced by the protesters:

You'll see a lot more protesters than the MSM reporter managed to fit into the photograph.
