Mayberry values

Last night's debate between U.S. Rep. Vic Snyder and his Republican challenger, Andy Mayberry, had entertainment value, at least.

Mayberry delivered where expected, steering the conversation toward abortion, gay marriage, and back to abortion again. Then he chasitized Snyder's wife, Betsy Singleton, for preaching tolerance in the Methodist church where she is minister, leading to the best line of the political season so far.

"You don’t get very far in Arkansas politics picking on a man’s wife," Snyder responded.

Sounds like something Andy Griffith would say ....
