"I WILL NOT BE IGNORED!" (via pj):Candidate debate has unfriendly end (Bill Walsh, 11/24/02, The Times-Picayune)
An already-bitter U.S. Senate campaign got personal Saturday afternoon at the conclusion of a taped debate between Democrat Sen. Mary Landrieu and Republican state Elections Commissioner Suzanne Haik Terrell.
After a tense 30-minute segment finished taping at WDSU's studios in New Orleans, the two candidates were preparing to leave. According to witnesses, Landrieu looked over her shoulder and told Terrell, "This is your last campaign."
A stunned Terrell replied, "She threatened me."
No other words passed between the two New Orleans women, but moderator Alec Gifford said Landrieu appeared peeved.
"She just kind of stalked out of the studio," Gifford said.
Is it just me, or have the Democrats truly come unhinged? I guess the only surprise here is that Ms Landrieu didn't use some kind of thinly-veiled homosexual slur; that seems to be their stock in trade these days.
