On a related note: I attended a Bob Dole/ Jack Kemp rally in 1996. Bob Dole was going to be there but Jack Kemp was campaigning in a nearby city.
A reporterette from the local leftist rag came up to me. The question that she asked me took me aback a second, "Are you disappointed that Jack Kemp did not show up?" It was one of the few times I was thinking on my feet and I replied something like, "Bob Dole and Jack Kemp are what is good for America".
The question asked of me was a have-you-stopped-beating-your-wife question. With a little imagination, you can see how the repoterette could take a "yes" or "no" response and twist it to a leftist slant.
Moral of the story: DO NOT answer THEIR question. Respond with a canned response or slogan or something similar. Another approach is to imagine that the so-called reporter asked "who is right for America" or "who is wrong for America" or "what does the Tea Party represent".
