Cubin tells challenger, ‘I’d slap you’

Casper Wyo. Star Tribune
Excerpt
Wyoming LIbertarian Candidate Thomas RankinLibertariain Candidate for Wyomings lone house seat Thomas Rankin said Cubin approached him after a campaign debate on Sunday and said, “If you weren’t sitting in that chair, I’d slap you across the face.”
The Cubin campaign did not deny the remark, but a spokesman for the six-term congresswoman said Rankin started the exchange.
“He misrepresented her and insulted her integrity during the debate,” Cubin spokesman Eric Cullen said, reading from a prepared statement.
“When she approached him after the debate about it, he said something not very complimentary. She responded. It was a private conversation. She’s over it.”

H.L.s Take:
She’s over it, I love that. Everytime the Republicans pull another atrocity and people complain, their response: Get Over It. Stolen elections? Get over it. 600,000 dead in Iraq war? Get over it. Pay cut? No Heath Insurance? You live in New Orleans? Your Veterans benefits got cut? The U.S. Treasury has been looted?, Why can’t you just get over it, they have.

    HL, that is so true.

    Well gee HL you mean to tell me that when someone lies about you your happy about it. Rankin would have had a slap comming. He trys to lie to the people at the debate and is called on it and than complains about the fact that she said what she did. Just like a Lib lie about what you can and than complain about the Repercussions when you get cought. Just because he has MS doesn’t make him special. He is just another Lib that lies. Worse is he tried it in a debate and got called on it which made him look like a fool. I am sure that the people in Wyoming will vote for him.

    Couldn’t she just let the air out his tires?

  4. HL Says:

    regardless of whether he was lying or not (and I tend to believe he wasn’t) it just doesn’t show a whole lot of class to threaten to slap a wheel chair bound crippled person. But hey, that Republicans for you. Either you go along with my thinking, or you are a threat to me that must be destroyed.
