What do you think, Mr. Marr?
Interview with the Sheep
Host Tom Marr
TM: Good Morning. WCBM 680 is pleased to welcome Red Bartlersman of Kennedyville, MD, home to Rep. Wayne Gilchrest of MD's First Congressional District. Mr. Bartlersman is one of a growing number of long-time Gilchrest supporters who are increasingly disaffected by the Congressman's recent votes and speeches. Mr. B has come to the studio this morning wearing a sheep costume.
TM: Mr. B I have to ask you....why the sheep outfit?
RB: It is a symbol of how Gilchrest has come to view those of us, faithful Republicans, who have supported him through the years.
TM: He views you as sheep?
RB: Pretty much. He has said that voting for Republican measures in the House are the acts of mindless sheep.
TM: But, Red, may I call you Red? He considers himself an independent. What he meant by that comment was that he thinks for himself and votes his conscience. How can you take umbrage at that?
RB: One: If he considers himself an independent, then he should run for office as such; and TWO: What does it say about the rest of us? About his colleagues in the Republican Caucus?
TM: I guess it says that you are all mindless sheep. Thanks for coming on this morning, Red.
RB: Baaaa Baaaaa Baaaaa.
TM: That was Red Bartlersman....just one of a ...herd, er flock, of Eastern Shore, District 1 Republicans not happy with Gilchrest's recent vote for the non-binding resolution. Perhaps we are witnessing the beginning of the end for Congressman Gilchrest.
