New York Times Magazine "Interview" With Jack Carter

U.S. Senate candidate Jack Carter proves once again that he's an intelligent, honest, down-to-earth man in an "interview" with Deborah Solomon of the New York Times Magazine today. The questions are just mostly awkward and that's putting it politely. It sometimes seems like she wants to trap him. Well, she didn't manage to. Here's one example:
I wonder how many U.S. senators have no prior experience in politics.

Well, I know the first ones we had back in the 1780's — the first batch of elected officials that we had when the nation was started — none of them did. I haven't kept up with them since.
All Ms. Solomon had to say to that was "touché". You can read the whole "interview" here.
