McSally blows it on Fox and Friends this Morning
Fox News ^ | 17 Feb 2012 | Fightin Kentuckian

Posted on 02/17/2012 7:38:44 AM PST by fightin kentuckian

Fox and Friends did an interview with Col.(Ret)McSally. She's running for Gabby's seat in Arizona CD8 and she just blew herself out of the water.

McSally was pathetic. She was asked a question about Rick Santorum and women in combat and her reply was "I'd like to kick him in the Jimmy." Of all the stupid things to say. I guess she was thinking it sound tough or maybe she didn't think at all. Either way it was an automatic red flag on the sanity scale.

Martha McSally keepin it classy. Her TV persona was flat out creepy as well. Everytime she opened her mouth she had an eye flutter. Not a rapid blinking but her eye lashes looked like they were going to take flight. And then the janis joplin hair, 70's reject thing going on didn't help. It all adds up to her campaign taking a dive before it even gets started.

What an idiot she seems to be. Doocy set that up and he knows the real context of Rick’s comments. I sent him a Tweet.

I watched it...

I looked up “kick him in the jimmy(jimmies)” in the always perverted ‘urban dictionary’....

it refered to something a ‘Dyke Gym teacher’ would say.

that being said...she seems conservative on ‘most’ issues.

we will see.

she opened her mouth she had an eye flutter. Not a rapid blinking but her eye lashes looked like they were going to take flight.

I looked at the video, and if you run it a few times, you start to pick up on the fact that she is signaling in Morse Code. I had to rerun it a few more dozen times, but this is what I have.

"SOS I am being held in a bunker in Qazvin, Iran. Aircraft disabled by missile. Being held as POW and forced to pretend I am running for office, which is torture. Tell my family I love them."

The message repeats two times, and she's into the third iteration when the report is terminated.

She's in serious trouble, WE NEED TO HELP.

Granted, not a very polished performance. When contrasted with some of the kooks we already have in office though.....could be worse. Not saying I’d vote for her. Just saying we have worse.

She has a significant case of dry eye syndrome and blepharitis. She should get a prescription for Restasis and artificial tears from her eye doc. Maybe some punctal plugs as well.

I like her...
I’d vote for her in a minute if I lived there.

So she’s not a polished pro or probably very lady like if you mess with her.

Too bad! We just DON’T need any more wimps if we want to really change things and get them FIXED.

When she is done maybe Danica Patrick can run for her seat.

She is gonna get savaged for her women in combat views not just for being talked about on this forum.

Based on the headline of this post, and most of the responses, I figured I was on Daily Kos (Odd because I have never looked at DK before) or else the article had to be about a democrat.

Then I remembered that many Freepers have become the front line for announcing that conservatives are supposed to turn against all republican candidates.

Perhaps the poster found her comment embarrassing, maybe she’s not a polished candidate at this time. OK, does that justify the crazed headline?

She’s an American hero (ine) and combat leader, I looked at her bio and immediately want to support her. And for a lousy congressional seat we already have decided she’s so awful?

It is not a vanity post org. per se

it’s the new hybrid vanity lol

post a vanity lead in to a genuine article

i’ve never thought of that...great idea actually

i forget where you stand but women in combat is a a teeth gnashing issue here

seems to cut about 90% against and a loud 10% for

so she is gonna get attention here since she is sorta the poster child for the cause and is running as a Republican

for the record..I think women in combat is a sign of cultural collapse like homosexual marriage and illegitimacy a 52 million abortions

fire away

I live in the South...a bit less ambiguity over these things here

I didn’t think she did such a bad job, and I’ve seen far worse. Look, Santorum’s remarks were not his best moment, he wasn’t clear and this allowed everyone to interpret what his real meaning was. As a decorated female veteran it should come as no surprise that she would take an opposing view, since she’s obviously bumped up against this issue throughout her career.

No harm, no foul. If our judgement of candidates now comes down to personal appearance, where are all the “Newt is fat” jokes? C’mon, let’s stay focused on what is important.

Kind of surprised by her politics. I know two people who knew her in her early years in the Air Force. One instructor pilot who was a colleague of hers, and one of her student pilots. The instructor liked her, the student saw her as someone who was always out for herself.

She's right on the issues, but I am not sure her personality will work well in the "go along to get along", seniority-driven nature of Congress. She would be likely to get frustrated after a few years.

Jesse Kelly and Frank Antenori both are more experienced candidates.

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE FRICKIN' KIDDING ME......
You guys had me visualizing some wild-eyed, nappy headed, kook before I watched the video. I thought she did great. AND SHE WAS RIGHT ABOUT RICK SANTORUM BEING OUT OF TOUCH. I like Santorum but he makes me nervous as hell with comments like the one about women in combat and, also, when he said that contraception was "bad for America". Rick Santorum will not get 10 percent of the women vote if he is the nominee. I'm returning to pulling for Newt again. Santorum does not have the chance of the proverbial snow ball in hell.

I'm thinking that all you guys criticizing this lady must be as out of touch with the real world as Rick is or very insecure in your manhood endowment.

Nothing wrong with being critical, but the point is that she did herself no favors by criticizing in such a childish way to a national audience. People concentrate on that part of the message and all else gets ignored. Rookie mistake.

The more Rick Santorum opens his mouth, the more I understand why he lost his last Senate race to a “dufus brain” like Bob Casey by 18 percentage points. And his biggest campaign donor saying that back in the day, women used aspirin for contraception. “The gals just held the aspirin between their knees.” GOOD GRIEF, CHARLIE BROWN.

The interviewer bent over backwards to fawn over this lady - including calling her the "first woman fighter pilot in combat". Umm no; A-10s are glorious ground attack weapons and tank-killer without parallel but they aren't "fighters" (that's why their designator starts with "A" instead of "F"). A dogfight with anything except maybe a Piper J3 would be a losing proposition.

I have no doubt that Col McSally was a dandy Air Force officer but fighter pilot?

Nah.

Flying a warthog qualifies as fighter pilot? Flying into a combat zone qualifies as “flew combat missions”? Give me a break. She’s what happens when the services admit females to military academies.
