    This lady was obviously not well prepared for this interview.

    Kind of reminds me of Sarah Palin.

    Any thoughts?
    Were she to be candidate for VP, it would make it impossible to vote for her running mate, which could be very sad, indeed.

    It will be interesting to see how far she gets with her try for congress.

    I'm not counting her out, yet.

    I'm going to wait and see how many more interviews she flubs and bails on.

    I would have probably walked out too, not before saying; "It doesn't matter where he was born considering his mother was a US citizen."

    All to frequently these progressive Journalists love to do noting but mock the non-democrat/progressive candidates in an intimidating manner,while when they interview progressives they give them nothing but "fluff questions" with a laughingly content smile.
    Asking why she believed that global warming is a hoax and whether President Barack Obama was born in the United States ARE serious questions. As Voltaire said, "those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities." The voters have a right to know how someone comes to such wacky conclusions.

    People such as yourself that turn politics into a team sport--I just don't get it. Are you really so concerned about a political candidate in another state that anyone who wears your colors you are for and anyone who wears the opponents colors you are against? Morons of all stripes get elected to Congress, you seem to just want to make sure that all of them are your morons.

    I was making a general comment about birthers. If you don't agree, that's great. But spare me the holier than thou crap. I'm not impressed.

    What precisely is wrong with voting in a primary to unseat a representative that you fundamentally disagree with? It sounds like you are objecting to someone exercising their right to vote.

    That's ok, I'm not interested in your general comment.

    Neither party has a monopoly on stupid. The difference is that when that Democratic House Member made that stupid statement other Democrats were embarrassed. Republicans, on the other hand, put their Palins right out front for all to see, relish in their ignorance and are unpersuaded by facts.
