The Clampdown

My head is surrounded by emanata upon reading this exchange between Rand Paul and a reporter:

ALESSI: Would you vote for the extension of the Medicaid reimbursement increase that the governors, at least thirty governors want?

PAUL: Why don’t you submit your questions to us and we’ll look at them.

ALESSI: You’re not going to answer any questions in person?
Not to put too fine a point on it, but there is a reason that certain politicians won't speak extemporaneously; they're afraid that they'll lose a majority of their followers. Sure no matter what you say you'll piss off someone, but to completely shut out spontaneous speech from your bag of tricks should be taken as a sign that you think you'll be elected because people think you're someone else.

I'm looking forward to hearing more interviews with the other Tea-Party-approved candidates.
