I had to make a shopping trip today so I had time in the car to ponder just what questions I will ask the two GOP Congressional candidates when they are on the HOTLINE this month.
I feel an obligation to be probing and a little prickly as there are no MSM long form interviews on TV or radio during the campaign.
Now, I don't want to play "gotcha" or be insulting, but I am a believer that Congress is high office and a candidate cannot expect a free pass you would give a novice candidate for town council.
These folks need to have their views challenged and the measure of their quality is how they deal with tough questions.
Surely their handlers can anticipate the obvious and will have appropriate canned answers.
But for the record, I agree to no "ground rules" and do not submit questions to anyone.
Back in my younger days as a reporter, some pols thought I was kind of a dick. Maybe I should try to relive my youth.
By the way, when did you stop beating your puppy ?
