It's been a while since the "Crazy Old Lady of Capitol Hill", otherwise known as Rep. Jean Schmidt (OH-02) has provided a colorful sound bite, but that changed just yesterday when she appeared at a teabagger rally.
Video blogger supreme Mike Stark has been chasing down members of Congress and trying to get them to go on the record about health care. Stark, who was famously smacked down and wrestled out of an appearance by then-Senator George Allen of Virginia back in 2006 (which was probably avoidable had he been slightly more cagey with Allen's over-excitable goon squad) has become a leading vlogger of the health care reform movement.
In this video we can see Schmidt's staffers doing their best to shield their boss from the all-seeing camera eye. Spazeboy has a video where he encountered a similarly knuckleheaded staffer from Joe Lieberman's campaign at the memorable 2006 State Democratic Primary. Sadly, the video is apparently gone from Youtube. Anyway, it's very revealing when candidates have to be protected from embarrassing themselves with their own words.
