Texas Governor Debate (Oct 6)

Be sure to watch. For some reason they've decided that this will be the only debate and they put it on the same weekend as the Texas/OU game. I'm sure almost nobody will be watching.

Unfortunately, I won't be watching because my company will have me in Rhode Island, working for the entire weekend. However I'll have my Tivo set.

I think WFAA will be carrying it in the DFW area, but apparently some areas of Texas won't be getting it on TV. Its an F'ing sham IMO. Why is there only one friggin' debate and why did they schedule it for the weekend of the Red River Shootout. Almost nobody is going to see it.

Political debates have so many rules and regulations it's always a sham anyway.

Normally I'd agree, but with two independents in the race, I think it'll be alot more interesting. I would certainly like to get more details on what Kinky would like to do as Governor. I have been a supporter, but that doesn't mean I'm 100% guaranteed to vote for him.

I'll set the Tivo as well.

Alright, it's set. Tomorrow at 7:00-8:00.

That was because Friday was the only time that Rick Perry would agree to do it. The stations also can't re-air it either. Rick is ahead in the polls and he doesn't want to take a chance of screwing that up.
