The Daily Kos’ Markos Moulitas can add another notch in his belt Friday after he managed to get former GOP Colorado congressman Tom Tancredo to walk out mid interview.
Markos Moulitas was appearing opposite Tancredo on MSNBC Friday night, when guest host David Shuster started talking about “hateful signs” at Thursday’s Capitol Hill “House call” against health care reform.
Markos Moulitas defended health care reform, noting that the military has Government health care. Tancredo claimed veterans would rather have a private choice, which is where the fun started. “Tom, I’m a veteran. Okay?” Markos Moulitas said. “I did not get a deferment because I was too depressed to fight a war I supported in Vietnam. I’m a veteran. They want a more effective V.A. …”
Tancredo, a supporter of the Vietnam War, managed to dodge being called up to that battle, a subject he apparently isn’t fond of talking about, because it caused him to leave the interview.
