There are fifty blog posts and dozens of comments on the mainstream websites arguing about how much damage Debra Medina did to her campaign today.
In an interview with the certifiable Glenn Beck -- that would be the same Glenn Beck who calls Rick Perry a "progressive" -- she couldn't say with certainty whether the federal government was in some way responsible for the terrorist attacks on 9/11.
You could not dream up stuff this wacky if you were smoking rocks.
The normally breathless Eric Dondero at Libertarian Republican -- a near-daily source of laugh-out-loud amusement for yours truly -- is hyperventilating over the news. Go ahead, click on over. You won't get any slime on ya. Read also the HouChron's Texas Politics blog for the direct quotes and especially the comments.
Perry lovers are giddy with excitement. Medina's minions are outraged.
Todd Gillman at TrailBlazers sums up the moral of the story in "At last, something Perry and Hutchison can agree on". And this comment there is pure comedy gold:
Hutchinson's campaign headqurters (sic) is probably delirious with joy. What an earthquake! This comment is even dumber than Clayton Williams' "rape" blunder. It cost him the election and this is even bigger than that. I was seriously considering voting for Medina. I'm not sure which one of us that exposes as the bigger idiot. Well, I'm not a big enough idiot to stay with her, now. Kay, I'm back in the fold.
Can I get you more popcorn while I'm in the kitchen?
Update: Rhymes with Hate rounds up more links (if you can stand any more) and slams the door on Medina's foot.
