Imagine you’re an Arizona member of congress and could invite anyone in the entire state to travel to Washington, D.C. as your guest to attend Barack Obama’s State of the Union address last night.
With a wide array of worthy conservatives to choose from, U.S. Rep. Matt Salmon,* who gives lip-service to being anti-establishment, confounded many with his selection of KFYI’s marginal talk show host Mike Broomhead.
Broomhead devotes interminable time to sycophantically interviewing the repeatedly censured John McCain, and was a dependable fawning lackey to former Gov. Jan Brewer, who took her marching orders from McCain strategists.
An A-Lister Salmon might have considered? Former Maricopa County Republican Chairman A. J. LaFaro, would have been an excellent conservative message-sending choice. The message Broomhead sends is one of subservience to the AZ GOP’s elites.
