Glenn Beck Takes Debra Medina Deep To Left
On Glenn Beck's radio show today, he brought up a rather savvy reason to watch out for these up-and-coming Tea Party candidates: they're mostly unknown and don't have much of a political record. We'd all love to see more average citizens get into the political process (quite honestly, the more people that run for public office, the better that government can run), but sometimes the virginity of the political process is oh so blatant.
For example, take a trap question Beck threw to Texas governor third party candidate Debra Medina: some people think she believes 9/11 was an inside job. Your thoughts, Deb?
"I'm going to champion people that hold their government accountable ... I don't have all of the evidence ... there are some very good arguments, and I think the American people have not seen all of the evidence ... I've not taken a position on that."
Well, hey, the campaign was fun while it lasted, right? It's all about the journey.
After the interview, in which Beck basically dismissed her chances, Medina put out a statement on her website that she hasn't "seen any evidence nor have I ever believed that our government was involved or directed those individuals in any way." Medina then explained that the question caught her off guard (uh, yeah) and repeated her stance about holding the government accountable.
She might've saved some face, but what Beck did to Medina was like Albert Pujols taking a rookie pitcher deep into the left field bleachers. She may recover, but she'll have to be better on her feet during interviews.
