Ron Paul surrogate, Debra Medina, shot her political campaign in the foot today during an interview on the Glenn Beck Program. When asked if she was a 9/11 Truther, she refused to answer the question, and in defense of her non-answer she revealed her true answer in the affirmative. For those of you in Lake Jackson, a 9/11 Truther believes that the U.S. Government played a hand in bringing down the twin towers of the World Trade Center on 9/11.
“I don’t have all of the evidence there, Glenn, so I don’t, I’m not in a place, I have not been out publicly questioning that. I think some very good questions have been raised in that regard. There are some very good arguments, and I think the American people have not seen all of the evidence there so I have not taken a position on that.”
Local talk radio was bombarded by the ‘usual suspects’, i.e. Rontard Seminar callers, in an attempt to prop up their ‘Trojan Horse’ candidate. The main complaints throughout the day were “Glenn’s question was unfair”, “it was a trick question”, and “it was a cheap smear campaign”. It just goes to show how Rontards are willing to follow their candidate like lemmings, right over the cliff.
The truth of the mater is this: if you are running for any office, any question is fair game. It’s not like Glenn asked her to do long division in her head. The question, “are you a 9/11 Truther” cuts to the chase and illuminates character of the candidate. And truly, if you think the Bush Administration had the where-with-all to pull something off like the World Trade Center, then you are a bigger idiot than he was, and you should be fitted for one of those white coats with really long sleeves and leather straps with heavy duty buckles.
Medina was given several opportunities to state her position on the matter on talk radio programs across the dial this afternoon. Paul Bettencourt filling in for Dan Patrick today on 700 KSEV gave the Medina campaign several offers to come on the show to set the record straight. Instead she decided to issue a ‘press release’:
“I have never been involved with the 9/11 truth movement, and there is no doubt in my mind that Muslim terrorists flew planes into those buildings on 9/11, … I have not seen any evidence nor have I ever believed that our government was involved or directed those individuals in any way.”
While I am certainly no fan of KBH, I like her response better:
“I know exactly who was responsible for the horrific attacks on September 11th — Al Qaeda terrorists who declared war on America, To suggest otherwise is an affront to the men and women who are sacrificing their lives to root out the terrorists in Afghanistan and around globe.”
I thought “ the American people have not seen all of the evidence” Ms. Medina? So how can it be that “I have not seen any evidence nor have I ever believed that our government was involved” when you state “ the American people have not seen all of the evidence”. hmmm
Medina was poised to knock Kay Bailey out of the number two spot in the Republican Primary, but after a gaffe like that she’s only likely to get about 10% of the vote.
It’s good to see Pat is still on his game, from thousands of miles away, he can still sniff out a Rontard…
