Rate the Smith-Merkley Debate

KGW featured the first debate between US Senate candidates Gordon Smith and Jeff Merkley.

Best unique lines:
Gordon Smith: Spoke on how he sponsored over 100 bills putting him in the top 90% of most effective Senators.
Jeff Merkley: Spoke on how Gordon Smith voted to cancel Ron Wyden’s vote 1700 times.

BEST THEME: Was the taxes. Gordon Smith kept listing the taxes Merkley voted for, income tax, gas tax, sales tax, small businesses, etc. Taxes was a sore spot for Merkley despite his constant telling the audience he was in favor of a tax cut.

MOST UNUSUAL MOMENT: The boy behind the news panel who kept making faces.
