Earlier today, CNN’s Manu Raju waited in the halls so he could toss some questions at approaching members of Congress. At one point, Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) was walking with a purpose when Raju tried to get her opinion on the Republican proposal. And she wasn’t having it.
“Could you give me a moment to get to my constituents, please?” Murkowski derisively asked Raju. When the reporter tried again, asking if she could give a yes or no on the bill, she stopped and went back to confront Raju.
“Would you please be respectful?!” Murkowski angrily asked. As Raju insisted he was being respectful, the Alaskan lawmaker stomped off.
Since Murkowski was in Washington DC, and her constituents are way the hell up here in Alaska, I am a little confused as to who she was rushing off to talk with.
Besides how long can it really take to respond to that question with a "Are you kidding me? I can't vote for that bill! It would destroy my career!"?
