Funny Steve King (R) exchange with opponent Matt Campbell (D)
Edited on Sat Sep-11-10 09:45 AM by catgirl
Steve King is another repug who is afraid to participate in a debate with his opponent.

From Huffington Post:

"Yesterday, Campbell attended Kings town hall meeting in Sioux City, IA, to confront him about his fear of engaging in a debate. After some introductory remarks, King seeming not to know who Campbell was recognized Campbell for a question. Campbell politely asked, 'You have never debated an opponent in eight years since youve been in office and Id like to know whether you this year will participate in a live televised debate for the viewers to be informed as to the decision they are making.'

King replied: "And my answer to that is that, judging by the fashion that youve conducted yourself, you have not earned it." It takes a special sort of man to use bravado to proclaim his yellowness!

2. You know why that is.. This is the third or fourth time King has refused to debate
Edited on Sat Sep-11-10 09:50 AM by Peacetrain
He never debates his opponents.. and has gotten away with it.. now you are seeing all kinds of right wingers taking it up.. because it worked for him

Campbell is trying to shame him into a debate. It was genius on his part

What will turn this around is a national shame campagin

When it finally reaches main stream media it will get though to the low information voters on a local level :kick:

3. And how is it going to do that?
The typical "low-information voter" is going to be oblivious to debates and make his decision on who has the most yard signs.

4. If MSM would pick this up...

Yes, it may work against them. But will they pick this up? I doubt it. Argh!!
