Earlier tonight, a small herd of Portland-area candidates went wild. From guess-what-the- audience-is-thinking questions, to MTV Cribs -style video interviews, to something unfortunately called "Guantanamo Grill" -- it's safe to say that every candidate made a fool of him/herself at least once tonight.
And then there was the talent portion of the contest... Erik Sten performed voodoo magic on a Ginny Burdick doll. Ginny Burdick impersonated David Letterman, while Dave Lister fired up the room with some blues harmonica. Ted Wheeler explained the application of climbing gear to politics, while Diane Linn wowed the crowd with her singing voice. Dan Saltzman taught everyone to program a VCR (so THAT's what an engineering degree gets ya) and Amanda Fritz did something unspeakable with an inflatable godzilla doll.
So, for those who were there... which candidate impressed you most? which one surprised you most? which one made you laugh? which one made you cry? Discuss!
(And no serious policy talk - that's for another post.)
Update: Jack Bog - who was part of the Grill - has his round-up here.
