CD8 GOP Debate: Brian Miller's 11th Commandment Violation

Posted By on Sun, Feb 14, 2010 at 10:17 PM

Rhonda did her usual great job in summarizing last Thursday's debate among the four Republicans seeking to unseat Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

At the end of the debate, many Republicans in the crowd were buzzing about Brian Miller's closing statement, in which he hammered state Sen. Jonathan Paton for representing the "brand of big-government Republicans that brought us into the mess we're in today" and Jesse Kelly for "being wrong on extremely important and showing an unwillingness to examine issues very closely" and for having a campaign that's "enabled by millions in stimulus money."

"On the one hand, you can accept the hollow echo of Jesse W. Bush," Miller said. "On the other hand, you can accept the hollow echo of Jonathan McPaton."

Several Republicans I spoke with afterwards said they thought Miller had crossed the line and done serious damage to his own political future. Watch it yourself in the above clip posted by JeremyINTucson1 and make up your own mind.
