This is the closest thing you’re going to get to a debate. Well worth the watch. Our incumbent tries every trick in the book to convince the Merc to endorse her – from “I’ve been bullied” to “they’re calling me names” to “he’s a radical conservative” — but again, no substance and even less truth.
She starts to really fall apart about 42 minutes into the interview. Sweating, blurting out unsubstantiated claims about Kevin Jensen’s wife and a last ditch effort to turn the argument to non-relevant issues like abortion and gay marriage as if Kevin would refuse to uphold the law?
To the Merc’s credit, their usual cowardice took hold and they best protected themselves, choosing to endorsed no one. I guess one step better than rubber stamping the incumbent. It was almost like Puxatawny Phil, they stuck their head out just long enough to see if their shadow would scare them.
