This may qualify as the worst excuse ever by a presidential candidate:
Tommy Thompson cited a dead hearing aid and an urgent need to use the bathroom in explaining on Saturday why he said at a GOP presidential debate that an employer should be allowed to fire a gay worker. […]
“I was very sick the day of the debate. I had all of the problems with the flu and bronchitis that you have, including running to the bathroom. I was just hanging on. I could not wait until the debate got off so I could go to the bathroom.”
Leaving aside his total lack of dignity and the apparent need to share way too much information, does anyone really want this man’s finger on the button?
I agree with the analysis here. But what’s really funny about this is watching the Democrats turn on the RINOs who might be their best chance to get some of their agenda passed.
