Rep. Barbara Cubin: When all else fails, threaten to assault the disabled.

[After a political debate]

[Libertarian candidate] Rankin, who has multiple sclerosis and uses an electric wheelchair, said that after the debate Sunday night Cubin "walked over to me and said, 'If you weren't sitting in that chair, I'd slap you across the face.' "


Apparently, if you can't win a debate rationally, Cubin believes the threat of violence is a legitimate tactic.

My name is Mark Johnson, and I've been an avid reader of your blog for about the last six months. I'm a recent UC Berkeley Political science grad and I along with some fellow Princeton alums have been working hard to launch our own internet startup called Rizzleweb.com. Rizzleweb is basically an online political community where people can log on and write performance reviews\comments for congressmen, senators, the president, and various other local and state officials across the country. I was hoping that if it would not be too much trouble you could place a link of our site on your blog. If this is not possible (which we completely understand), we still hope you will check out our site, and post some reviews
