Bangert Examines Rokita's Stance on the Shutdown and Obamacare

In Dave Bangert's column today on Todd Rokita's stance on healthcare and the shutdown, the J&C columnist noted the negative response to Rokita's statement that Obamacare is "one of the most insidious laws ever created by man," (including mockery from John Stewart) and his condescending and sexist behavior toward CNN reporter, Carol Costello(she cuts off the interview with his with the smug remark, “You’re beautiful, but you have to be honest, as well.”) Bangert concludes as follows:

Why should Todd Rokita worry?

He’s not going anywhere soon. Not at this rate. He’s in his element in this shutdown.

You decide if that’s OK.
