Comment of the Day: Low standards
|McFadden wants to bring a hockey player's mentality about medicine to Washington.|
McFadden may not provide health insurance to his campaign employees, but he has provided it to his kids. Literally. As we told you about Friday, a recent McFadden ad touts the fact he once took out his son's stitches himself because he was too cheap to spend $100 for a doctor do it.
That gives you the background for today's comment of the day:
In fairness to McFadden, some of the best political ads appeal to emotions instead of reason. But still, the idea probably wasn't to leave the viewer mostly feeling a vague sense of unease about the fact a co-CEO of an investment bank is too cheap to take his kid to the doctor.
