WY-AL: Barbara Cubin is Despicable

Posted by DavidNYC

From the Casper Star-Tribune:

The verbal sparring between two candidates for Wyoming's lone U.S. House seat didn't end when the televised debate ended Sunday evening.

Immediately after the lights and cameras shut down, incumbent Republican U.S. Rep. Barbara Cubin walked to Libertarian candidate Thomas Rankin, who had criticized her for receiving contributions from former House Speaker Tom Delay, R-Texas.

"'If you weren't sitting in that chair, I'd slap you across the face,'" Cubin told Rankin, he said Monday.

Rankin suffers from multiple sclerosis. "That chair" is the wheelchair he uses. I'm just in disbelief.

Barbara Cubin is a despicable, disgusting human being - and I think I'm being too polite. I sure as hell hope netroots candidate Gary Trauner sends her into early retirement next month.

Unbe-frickin-lievable. I hope the press in Wyoming is all over this. Since when does any politician on either side of the aisle threaten another one with physical harm? This might be the first nail in the coffin for Cubin...
