In an interview with Republican National Committee chairman Ken Mehlman, Fox News host John Gibson responded to Mehlman's defense of embattled House Majority Leader Tom DeLay (R-TX) by saying that "you're forcing me into the position of being a Democrat here -- which is an uncomfortable shoe for me to wear."
From the May 4 edition of The Big Story with John Gibson:
MEHLMAN: These are important issues. The American people want to see us solve problems. The president is looking forward and hopes to work with Democrats to solve these important problems.
GIBSON: Okay, but Ken, look, you're forcing me into the position of being a Democrat here -- which is an uncomfortable shoe for me to wear, but I'll do it for the moment. [Laughter] I mean, DeLay either did something wrong, or he didn't. I mean, some Republicans are even upset at Tom DeLay's behavior.
