Little Rock GOP consultant plays foil again for Daily Show

, a Little Rock Republican strategist, had another turn on the Daily Show last night. Jason Jones styled her as a Republican hostage taker in the government budget crisis. Defund Obamacare, she said. She also said it was unconstitutional and it remained unconstitutional even though the U.S. Supreme Court said otherwise.

The Daily Show brought in a trained hostage negotiator to prep Jones. Didn't work.

Nikpour is happy to fill a chair on the Daily Show. There was the time she stood up for climate change denial. And then there was the Fox News war on Christmas. No such thing as bad publicity.
