From her perch at MSNBC, Rachel Maddow has been blowing the whistle on the anonymous shadow group that's pounding the airwaves in Eugene, Oregon, with ads attacking Peter DeFazio - and supporting his crackpot (but well-funded) opponent, Art Robinson. (Seriously, he thinks public education is child abuse and that nuclear waste belongs in your house. No, really.)
Those of you who are fans of Maddow know that she enjoys bringing conservatives on her show. When she does, she's a tough interview - a Rhodes Scholar, by the way - but a fair interview. She asks honest questions about their views and gives 'em time to answer in full.
And last night, Art Robinson appeared on her show. It's hard to know what questions she wanted to ask, because she only got two of them in -- while Robinson managed to completely implode on live television.
