At today's City Club debate, Don McIntire crumbled when Defend Oregon Coalition member Steve Novick pointed out all the flaws in TABOR. (Update: you can listen here - mp3.)
Meanwhile, outside the debate hall, members of the Oregon PTA and other supporters point out that no matter how much lipstick you try to put on TABOR, it's still a bad deal for Oregon. Here they are posing with the pig that Howie Rich has sent around the country to push TABOR in other states.
McIntire's been staying close to the pig over the past few weeks, which explains why he's been a no-show at several high-profile ballot measure forums.
Apparently, his New York boss thought McIntire is a better pig wrangler than debater. I have to say, after seeing him today, this is one time I agree with Rich.
