    Clayton corked by Corker ...

    Commercial Appeal: Wendi C. Thomas: Clayton candidate debacle weakens an already weak state Democratic Party

    Would you support a candidate who says the TSA intentionally allows gay agents to fondle children?

    Or one who suspects China made Google rig its search results so people couldn't find him online?

    Of course you wouldn't.

    But that's exactly what more than 704,708 Tennesseans did Tuesday when they chose Mark Clayton, the Democratic nominee beaten soundly by the GOP incumbent, U.S. Sen. Bob Corker.

    Clayton may be, according to The Washington Post, "2012's worst candidate."

    He's also a cautionary tale for party loyalists and an embarrassment to the Tennessee Democratic Party, which shirked its duty to remind voters that Clayton is a quack.

    Party leadership knew Clayton, a part-time flooring installer from Whites Creek, is a conspiracy theorist and virulently opposed to gay marriage. But he won the August party primary, thanks to a name first on the alphabetic ballot.

    He could've had so much support if he hadn't conflated TSA rights violations with marriage equality. He could've stood on a principle worth standing for - that TSA is wrong in and of itself for doing what it does. That every time a TSA employee does their job and follows orders, that TSA employee is in violation of the very spirit of our nation.

    But oh, no, that would make too much sense. TSA is only evil BCUZ OF TEH GHEYZ!

    Swing and a miss, Marky-mark. Better luck next...actually, you know what, just quit before you further embarrass yourself.

    He would have been more accurate if he'd said the TSA intentionally allows pedophiles, ephebophiles, and other perverts to molest people, including children.

    There is no correlation that I am aware of between "homosexuality" and "molesting people."
