Glenn Beck Asks Debra Medina About "Truthers"

This morning, ascendant GOP primary candiate Debra Medina appeared on Fox News host Glenn Beck's radio show and, by Beck's estimation, steered her campaign onto the fast-track "back to 4 percent."

Beck asked Medina about rumors that she's a "9/11 truther," an individual who believes the government may have been involved in the Sept. 11 attacks.

"I think some very good questions have been raised in that regard," Medina responded. "There are some very good arguments, and I think the American people have not seen all of the evidence there.  So I have not taken a position on that."

"I think the American people might take that as a yes," Beck laughed. After the call ended, he said, "Rick, I think you and I could French kiss right now."
