David Shuster fills in for Tucker and interviews Representative Marsha Blackburn (R - TN7). (09.24.07), via Crooks And Liars:
"Shuster: 'Let’s talk about the public trust. You represent, of course, a district in western Tennessee. What was the name of the last soldier from your district who was killed in Iraq?'

Blackburn: 'The name of the last soldier killed in Iraq uh - from my district I - I do not know his name.'

Shuster: 'Ok, his name was Jeremy Bohannon, he was killed August the 9th, 2007. How come you didn’t know the name?'

Blackburn: 'I - I, you know, I - I do not know why I did not know the name...' [Snip]

Shuster: 'But you weren’t appreciative enough to know the name of this young man, he was 18 years old who was killed, and yet you can say chapter and verse about what’s going on with the New York Times and Move' [Snip]

Shuster: 'But don’t you understand, the problems that a lot of people would have, that you’re so focused on an ad — when was the last time a New York Times ad ever killed somebody? I mean, here we have a war that took the life of an 18 year old kid, Jeremy Bohannon from your district, and you didn’t even know his name.'"

Catch Tucker Carlson

Why is that, Marsha?

UPDATE: Kevin Drum asks the $64,000 question.
