Good Grief: Pushy Mother Has Kid Ambush Perry With Evolution Questions
Goodness. Rick Perry has been in the campaign for what, six days now? And this is what we have to expect everywhere he goes? Look, politicians are fair game for these types of questions, but this vile woman uses her child to score cheap political points, and repeatedly has the kid ask more questions. Hey lady, you're standing a foot away from Governor Perry. Why don't you ask the damn questions yourself?
What a horrible, horrible woman. Wouldn't surprise me in the least to find out she's a Democratic Party plant.
Having said that, you'll note Perry handles himself gracefully. Recall just a few days ago when Obama couldn't even handle Ryan Rhodes asking him a question without unraveling and sniveling that it was Rhodes who wasn't listening.
H/T Ben Smith.
By the way, I could care less what Perry thinks about evolution, abortion, gay rights, nonexistent global warming, you name it. It doesn't matter in the current climate and economic meltdown we're in. But this is how it's going to be with the left and the media (I know, same thing). Every day Perry will be inundated with tangential issues, every day will be an effort to produce a gaffe, call him racist, find old girlfriends, whatever.
Republicans are vetted and subjected to the crudest form of gutter politics.
Democrats just preen and the adoring masses swoon. Who cares what they've done before, they can read a Teleprompter. Maybe instead of enabling cruse ambushes designed for a gotcha moment, perhaps the media should reflect on why they didn't do their jobs in 2007 and 2008. The result of their neglect is flying into Martha's Vineyard today while they're busy trying to trip up a decent man who would replace him.
Update: The very uncritical NY Times identifies this woman as Kristin Bunce. This story is making the rounds on the left and I can't find a single instance where anyone even mentions the boorish behavior of Bunce.
This is who they are.
Can't find much on anyone by that name, but the name Kristin Bunce appeared as an editor on the Harvard Law & Policy Review. The same name appears here identified as being with the U.S. Department of Education.
