Maddow Takes on Hayworth
Link from TPM. John McCain's primary challenger, J.D. Hayworth, entered the lion's den (or horse's barn?) Monday night by agreeing to appear on the Rachael Maddow Show. He recently insisted that gay marriage laws would lead to man/horse marriages. Yes, you read that correctly. Obviously, Maddow was poised to take him to task. Why do people like him underestimate her skill? She really knows her facts and backed him into a corner pretty well by simply demanding and presenting the facts.
Rachel Maddow last night challenged former Rep. J.D. Hayworth (R-AZ), who is running against Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) in the Republican primary, on his assertion that the Massachusetts Supreme Court defined marriage as an "establishment of intimacy" that could lead to man-and-horse marriage -- when the phrase "establishment of intimacy" isn't in the decision itself.
"Where in Massachusetts law or in the Supreme Court ruling does it say, 'the establishment of intimacy?'" Maddow asked. "I read, spent the whole afternoon sort of looking for that, and couldn't find it anywhere."
Haworth maintained that "the high court in Massachusetts defined marriage in a rather amorphous fashion, simply as, quote, 'the establishment of intimacy.' Now, I think we all agree there's much more to marriage than that."
"Sir, I'm sorry, it didn't," Maddow replied. She laid out all the uses of the word "intimacy" in the court's decision, showing that Hayworth's phrase was not in there.
"Well, that's fine," said Hayworth. "You and I can have a disagreement about that.""Well, it either is true or it isn't," said Maddow.
I am a little surprised that McCain still has to worry about this race. Sarah Palin will be campaigning for McCain soon-another reason she is losing respect within the Tea Party movement.
Well, I'm off to date that horse I've been obsessed over...what a hottie! LOL!
