Veteran Political Analyst Has Terrifying Encounter With House CandidateLouisiana state Rep. LENAR WHITNEY (R), candidate, Louisiana's 6th Congressional District
GRASP OF ISSUES: 3
SENSE OF PURE ANIMAL TERROR: 30
LEFT SHAKEN BY ENCOUNTER: OH GOD, YES
Our Summary Review
"Fourth in the GOP field" but first among "climate deniers," Louisiana state Rep. Lenar Whitney succeeds in standing out among the "over 300 congressional candidates over the course of seven years" that this reviewer has sampled. Where the average candidate is "accustomed to tough questions" and typically capable of merely leaving one feeling "impressed" or merely "underwhelmed," Whitney -- a self-described "Palin of the South" who "relishes poking Democrats in the eye" -- stands apart from the candidates met in "hundreds of Cook Political Report meetings" by being not just "fact-averse" but, indeed, "the most frightening candidate I've met in seven years interviewing congressional hopefuls." The best moment was when Whitney "fled the room." Sure to be somebody's "worst nightmare."
