I've been listening to Lamar Alexander's new radio spots (he is running for Senate here in Tennessee since Republican incumbent Fred Thompson decided not to run again due to a recent family tragedy), and I kept wondering who it is that Lamar reminds me of. That's always been in the back of my mind when I see or hear the guy, but I just couldn't figure it out. Today I finally did.

Lamar Alexander sounds exactly like Pat Boone. He looks a good bit like him as well. Don't you think so? By the way, my mother's little brother, my Uncle John B. Anderson, wrote the Rolling Stone cover story on Pat Boone to which I have linked above. Family mythology has always maintained that it was the lowest selling issue of the magazine in its history.
