In the race for U.S. Senate, Sen. Pat Roberts (R-VA) and challenger Greg Orman (I-KS) squared off in a formal debate in Kansas last night. At the end of the debate, the moderator asked them to say one nice thing about each other, a brief moment of civility. Orman was first up, praising Roberts' military service in the Marines and:
"Every time I've had an opportunity to talk privately with the senator, he's been a gentleman with a great sense of humor.".
And then Sen. Pat Roberts had his opportunity for a brief moment of civility, but he apparently decided to go in a different direction. He couldn't play nice for 30 seconds:
"I would say that you are a very well-dressed opponent. I admire your accumulation of wealth. I have a little question about how you got there from here, but that's the American dream.".
