The National Journal, one of the top political publications in the country, today released its list of "Memorable House Debate Moments of 2012." Out of 435 races nationwide, who made the list? Ann Kirkpatrick, with her "meltdown" at the Arizona Republic editorial board meeting.
Here is what National Journal had to say about Kirkpatrick's meltdown:
-- "Meltdown": Former Democratic Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick, running to reclaim Arizona's 1st District, won the Arizona Republic's endorsement in 2008 and 2010. But she lost the paper's 2012 endorsement to Republican Jonathan Paton after displaying "unbounded contempt" for Paton during their meeting with the paper's editorial board. "We have seen more complete meltdowns in our board meetings," the Republic editorialized, "but never one so unexpected."
