Mike Haridopolos Kicked Off Conservative Talk Show For Being Waffling Idiot
Rep. Paul Ryan's Republican budget plan, which among other things essentially replaces Medicare with a voucher program, is shaping up to a be a big issue in the 2012 election, and one would expect any candidate, especially running for a Federal legislative office, to have an opinion on it. Florida Senate President Mike Haridopolos, who's run for U.S. Senate in 2012 has already been beleaguered by a book scandal, was on a conservative radio show, but was kicked off when he didn't have much of anything to say about the Ryan plan.
Haridopolos's appearance on The Run Junior show is a lesson in how to say tons of words without ever actually giving an answer one way or another:
It's hard to hear exactly what Haridopolos is saying, but Naked Politics has the transcript . However, Junior repeatedly asks Haridopolos whether he would have voted 'yes' or 'no' on the controversial bill. Haridopols replies with lines like, "Again, I don't have all the information to make that decision yet," and tries to shift the conversation multiple times to what he's done in the Florida Senate.
Tired of not getting a straight answer, Junior hangs up on Haridopolos. Ouch.
