Ah, well, it was interesting while it lasted. Debra Medina, running in the GOP primary for Texas governor just hit a wall. Rising in the polls and with buzz generated by that, Medina was a guest on the Glenn Beck radio show this morning. Here's where it all went horribly wrong:
A clip from today's Glenn Beck radio show:
So, the gasps were heard all around. Is Debra Medina a 9/11 truther, they ask? Maybe. She wouldn't answer the question. She claims that there is evidence not released by the government and that not all the evidence is in. Maybe she hasn't read the confessions put forward by those who claimed responsibility for the terrorist attack - radical Islamists.
Medina is a former chairwoman of the Wharton County GOP in Texas. She has a history of a more Libertarian wing of the GOP than the traditional members. A good background of her support of the Ron Paul wave is here:
I have listened to Debra Medina, up close, and she starts out good but then goes off a cliff. When I heard her speak, it was at a meeting of Republican women. She is personable and open to questions. During the question and answer session, she said she home schooled her two children. Then she admitted she only taught them about creationism in their science curriculum. She said that the age of the earth is still in question and that she believes it is somewhere around 4,000 years old.
The results of the March 2 GOP primary will be interesting. Early voting begins February 16.
