Debbie Dingell has NO idea what Barack Obama has accomplished or why he’s qualified to be President.

But you don’t have to take my word for it… Debbie will tell you herself.  Appearing yesterday on Detroit newser WWJ’s Eye on Michigan Politics radio program Debbie was praising her candidate’s record and was asked if she could name one specific legislative accomplishment that she was proud of.  What followed was… well… Debbie, take it away!

For the hearing impaired, her answer went something like this:

“Well, you know, he’s done a, a number of…I… I… I have had a number…

“You know, when Senator Obama first came to Washington I was fortunate enough to meet him right away with uh, uh… Jesse Jackson, Jr… and, by the way, one of the first things he immediately talked to me about was the auto industry and understanding the health care issues but also pushing the companies on the energy forefront.”

And here you thought they’d learned from Kirk Watson.

That woman interrupting at the end is Kerry Ebersole.  I’ve listened to the whole interview a few times now and I’m still not sure why the lefty was praising John McCain for having a long record of accomplishment, but hey, whatever.  Anything to get her pal off the hook.  

But cutting off an interview question two weeks in a row to protect liberal guests without answers?  Stay classy Kerry.  Stay classy.
