Clash Of The Mediocres

I wasn't impressed by either Daryl Romeyn or Cathy McMorris Rodgers in their debate. Romeyn appeared to have studied up some but missed some great opportunities to show how McMorris Rodgers doesn't work for the common person. He appeared to score some points by highlighting her minimal record over the last six years. I missed 15 minutes of it so I don't know if he brought up her earmark reform record or lack thereof. McMorris Rodgers repeated Republican talking points like a champ. Unfortunately, Romeyn brought some of them up.

What really disappointed me was the inability of both of them to show how Don't Ask - Don't Tell and childhood obesity are huge societal issues.
