Lowden vs. Lowden

by Turkana

Greg Sargent:

Exactly 42 days after Sue Lowden first committed the original chickens-for-checkups gaffe, she's still struggling to put it behind her -- and now she's explicitly denying originally making chicken-related assertions she plainly did make.

Harry Reid's campaign has the video:

Ralston points out that Lowden talked about how people used to barter chickens for checkups in the old days, and he quotes her saying: "I'm not backing down from that system."

"No, I never said `from that system,'" Lowden shot back. "I never said, `from that system.'"

But she did. Her original quote:

Before we all started having health care, in the olden days our grandparents, they would bring a chicken to the doctor... I'm not backing down from that system.

Jed Lewison had the video.
