[Talk Radio] Now is the time to come to the aid of Chris Buttars.
At least Buttars' favorite political bedfellow (now that's an image, eh?) Gayle Ruzicka thinks so. The director of the right-wing Eagle Forum in Utah is standing by her man in the state Senate, even though Buttars continues to dig a deeper hole for himself every time the grumpy old racist opens his mouth.
The latest: Buttars uses the term "hate lynch mob" in describing the public outcry against his infamous "black baby" remark last week on the Senate floor. Uh, another unfortunate choice of words, Senator?
Anyway, Ruzicka has said her organization will continue to defend the battered Buttars because he's so often on the correct side of their "family values" agenda. Today at 4:35 p.m., Ruzicka will be on KVNU radio out of Logan, on the station's "For The People" local talk show. The 610-AM radio station's Web site points out that Ruzicka has graciously agreed to discuss the Buttars controversy and to take phone calls on any topic. Get your speed-dials ready...
You can go to KVNU's site and listen live, on-line. (Holly Mullen)
