"I am not a rubber stamp"
In their last head-to-head debate before Tuesday's 2nd Congressional District election, Democrat Paul Hackett accused his opponent, former Republican state Rep. Jean Schmidt, of being a "rubber stamp" for the "failed policies" of the Taft administration, and said she can be expected to do the same for President Bush in Washington.
Schmidt insisted she will be an independent voice.
"I am not a rubber stamp," said Schmidt, who served in the Ohio House from 2001 to 2005.
Somewhere, Lakoff must be smiling.
Even if Hackett doesn't win this race I think he has rolled out an excellent frame for any Democrat to use against Republicans. "Rubber Stamp" has such a nice ring to it doesn't it?
