Rodney Glassman had an event at the Shanty on Sunday evening. Your Tucson citizen reporter was denied the ability to even enter the premises with a camera in the bag, and meanwhile others were able to take public pictures and video out in the open. Selective enforcement of the rules for the reasonably suspicious…
Nonetheless, your fearless reporter was able to capture audio of the event!
Glassman has clearly memorized his responses and they are almost verbatim what he answered on his Arizona Illustrated interview (see video below). I was tired of the same old McCain bashing. I wanted Glassman to answer a question straight from the heart, with corazon. This attempt failed miserably.
Listen to the following clip which is less than one minute long. After my question he said “last question” and called it a night with the daylight still shining, and I had two pages of important questions prepared for the Tucson Citizen audience to become more informed. Sadly, politics and memorized rhetoric and the inability to answer Yes or No questions with an actual Yes or No, ruled the night.
Take a listen and decide for yourself:
My claim is that Glassman, as a US Senate candidate, is now a political robot since he lacks the ability to answer simple questions anymore. The political machine has taken control of his body, and he has lost his basic humanity in search of his pursuit of political power. This is the dangerous path that previous politicians have taken before, and it is exactly the same path Glassman is headed down now, a politician who answers with vagueness instead of having the testicular fortitude to answer a question from one human being to another.[tnivideo caption=”Glassman on Arizona Illustrated” credit=”David Morales”]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oaul35gi2hk
Disclosure: Three-Sonorans has volunteered as a private citizen for the Randy Parraz for US Senate campaign and also financially contributed to the Glassman campaign and signed his petition to be on the ballot before the SB1070 fiasco went down.
