I read Baconcat's tweets about how boring it was.

I enjoyed the debate. Inslee seemed totally on top of the issues (though with that airy demeanor that some people think looks deer-in-the-headlights; he's like that in one-on-one conversations too.) McKenna came across as a mean, unlikeable dick.

I wish we'd get a Dem candidate with the stones to propose a switch to a state income tax (maybe with a 2-3 year commitment to revenue neutrality) but until I get my Xmas wish, Inslee will make a great governor.

The fundamental problem with debates is that if you have a brain you've already made your mind up long ago, and if you don't you are unlikely to be able to process debating statements, or any statements not in regard to snack foods. So debating tends to devolve into two (or more) people trying to convince the stupidest person in the room.

I like any opportunity for people to see how goodlookin' Jay is, and you're right - standing him next to the Mantis really highlights his DILFiness.

@6 - And now I'll never be able to see Rob McKenna without thinking of Zorak. Thanks.

Goldy, Jeb is the front runner for 2016, bet on it, as well as the usual short term memory of the masses. Paul gets a cabinet position if he wins.

#4, if Inslee proposed a state income tax, he'd have stones, but he'd lose the eastside vote and the election.

There was a debate? Why doesn't anyone announce these things in advance, so I could momentarily fret about how I should do my civic duty to watch these things BEFORE I put in the South Park DVD?

I've barely been paying attention, just like I've barely been following the initiatives. I just know that I'm voting to approve gay marriage, whichever initiative that is, but that's it. I don't know about marijuana or anything else.

I've been just obsessing over the Presidential race, because it matters so much and it feels out of my control. I'm very eager to find out how it's going to turn out and right now we can only extrapolate, so I keep track of it everyday to check if we're headed in a good direction. If Obama was up by twenty, I probably wouldn't be paying much attention. If Romney was up by twenty, I would be too morose to even turn on the computer.

You know what's funny, though. I feel about the gubernatorial race probably the same way Republicans feel about the Presidential race. I'm not so much voting for Inslee as I am voting against McKenna.

After the Bush vs Kerry debates, it was pretty clear that Bush got his ass kicked and Fox News was too embarassed to post poll on who won.

While I now feel that McKenna is a Tea Party Weasel that I will never vote for, he clearly won the debate last night. Which I guess is the reason why The Stranger posts a poll about not who won the debate, but whether people watched it or not.

Inslee doesn't impress me and feels like a cross between George Bush and Joe Biden. I may agree with his stance on certain policies, but comes off as a moron.

@11 - Oh my god, I never realized Jay Inslee was so adorable and fluffy.

Nope, I went to see the IMAX 3D sneak preview of Flying Swords of Dragon Gate.

Wow! That was an excellent movie! Jet Li, flying logs, flying swords, daggers, you name it, it was there!

Highly recommended when it comes out for only one week ...

You know, I try my hardest to just keep my mouth closed and not take what Goody says seriously; I mean he's just a poor blogger who is trying to make a living like everyone else in this economy. I just can't help but echo what Kinison mentioned above in response 14. The only reason he isn't praising this debate is because Inslee did not live to any expectation whatsoever. From people leaning both left and right, the comments were universal; Inslee sucked, and there was no doubt he lost the debate in every measurable way. Unless you're so hard-line that you could vote for a turd as long as it had a (D) trailing it, Inslee was THAT lackluster in my as well as my admittedly socialist mother in-law's opinion. Sorry to burst everyone's bubble, but just watch it, replay it if need be, its archived. Eli and Goldy's interpretive play-by-play and followup story disappointed me to the point that I don't think I can ever take anything they say worth a grain of salt ever again, and now I know the truth to why Rob doesn't want him at press conferences; not only is he not a real journalist, but he is a full fledged liar.
