This is video of the interview that led 8th District Congressional Candidate Rick Goddard to refer to MSNBC reporter Ron Allen as "very uppity."
Jim Galloway has had that video up at the Political Insider since Monday. Gen. Goddard is likely to be too busy campaigning for an interview today, according to his campaign manager, Lonnie Dietz.
So I asked Dietz what, specifically, did Mr. Allen do that was so arrogant and uppity. Dietz said it was when Allen, referring to Gov. Sarah Palin, said: “To be fair her resume is not something that we are familiar seeing with Presidential candidates."
That, Dietz said in an email, was "when he dropped all pretense of objectivity and arrogantly launched an attack on Governor Sarah Palin’s experience."
Wow. If that's really what Gen. Goddard thinks of as "very uppity," he's in for a rude awakening. Which is odd, because I know we've met. I'll have to ask tougher questions.
UPDATE: Because I never actually printed the original Goddard quote:
"I’ll tell you one thing, I think we’re going to have a very, very strong, capable president in John McCain. Last night, Newt Gingrich disarmed a very uppity newscaster who tried to question him on the capabilities and leadership of Governor Palin."
