Big hat tip to David Safier at Blog For Arizona for noticing this.
ABC News featured an interview today with CD5's Congressman David Schweikert. He spent his time whistling past the graveyard over the Republican loss in NY-26 last night, something which most observers (including me) attribute to the Republican candidate's whole-hearted embrace of the plan to turn Medicare into a corporate voucher plan.
Among the "highlights" -
Destroying Medicare is "based on the math."
Destroying Medicare will "save the republic."
Destroying Medicare is "the honorable" thing to do.
At the end of the interview, there was a staged, "awww, isn't that cute moment" moment with Schweikert's dog, Charlie. Schweikert called to the dog to get him to jump up, but had to tug on his leash to get Charlie to move for the camera.
Wonder if Schweikert will be surprised when the seniors and working families that he is throwing under the bus tug on his leash?
