Chair of NRCC Uses Children as Human Shields

Well, if this don't beat all. The National Republican Congressional Committee is now hiding behind small children to avoid answering questions about sexual predators. Watch Rep. Tom Reynolds refuse the reporters' requests to remove the children from the room so that substantive questions about online sexual abuse of minors could be addressed; and then assure the press that he would "answer any questions you have" -- knowing full well (or at least hoping against hope) that they would not do so with toddlers and preschoolers gazing at them from the podium.

As a side note, I had to Google NRCC to find out what it stood for. Even political bloggers don't have universal knowledge of all acronyms, and it's annoying when they are not defined at first usage. I always do so, myself.
