Debbie Medina, who is running for Governor of Texas, refused to disavow the 9/11 conspiracy theorists who believe the U.S. government deliberately blew up the World Trade Center buildings.
That was too much even for Beck, who asked her the question, but has now dismissed her as a nut job.
Medina is really a piece of work. She has gone from 4 percent support in the Republican primary to 16 percent support on the basis of her stance that Texas should withdraw from the Union and her other lunatic fringe beliefs.
All of which was too lunatic even for Beck. He is back on board supporting Rick Perry, the current governor, who leads the Republican primary. Kay Bailey Hutchinson is looking positively like a left-wing lilly-livered liberal these days.
