I don't care which party you're in. And the issues and candidates in the below video are almost irrelevant (for the record, this is an anti-Norm Coleman video put out by Minnesota Democrats). We've seen this sort of scenario play out with politicians and their spokespeople on both sides. Reporters ask a question. The flack has a script. And never the twain shall meet. The flack sticks to the script regardless of the questions. The reporters keep trying to reword the question as if they'll somehow -- with their clever wordplay -- trick the flack into suddenly changing his mind and answering the question. It's like watching one of those Head On commercials.
