    First, it puts daylight between the GOP Senate leadership and folks like Corker.

    Second, it holds Corker's statement up to the light and demonstrates the idiocy of the GOP, in the words of a GOP Senator.

    Third, it puts pressure on Corker to stop doing TV appearances and start using leverage on his buddies in the GOP and the financial industry.

    Corker knows this is an election year and there's a lot on the table in Tennessee.  I don't trust him at all, but I do want to make him take responsibility for results.

    Full Disclosure: I am not Ben Leming. But I think he's pretty cool.

      I don't trust Corker either, but I think he smells a trap and doesn't want to fall into supporting Wall Street gangsters (when they're handing out indictments up there.)
