Anyone watch the governors debate on TV tonight?

I thought kinky looked rough, and at times strayhorn seemed nervous when she had to veer away from her prepared remarks. Perry looked slickly political as expected. Chris Bell came across to me as very reasoned.

Interesting debate.

Interesting debate.

I listened to some of it on 820. I could tell who the "real" canidates were. Kinky is a joke. Did he answer any of the questions correctly? And "Grandma" needs to stop trying to sound cute, and do a little research on the state of texas. Both Kinky and her got some easy ass questions wrong. Do they think they are fooling people with answers like "too long" and "not enough." The little bit that I heard was entertaining.

kinky looked like he was nervous, he couldn't talk straight into the camera and was swaying side to side.... he actually might have been drunk

I watched it too.

lolz @ Strayhorn not knowing the president of Mexico.

If the election was based on nothing but this debate, Perry would win hands down.

Chris Bell won the debate in my opinion. Take Strayhorn and her in depth knowledge of Perry's budget out and he would have looked better. She called him out on several different topics and had facts that were indisputable.

If Kinky bows out and throws his support to Bell it could get really interesting. Strayhorn doesn't have a chance and all Perry can do is lose.

I thought kinky was a straight up joke, then i realized he might have just been flat out drunk.

..

I forgot to watch it but caught the end and the highlights. I'm dissapointed in grandma because when she has a chance to explain her thoughts better, she just says the same ole shit. Kinky is a waste of a vote. Rick looked good, even though I know he's a politician and is full of shit. I'd like to hear more about Chris Bell.

On the news, they told how much money each has to spend. It's something like:

Perry - $8M
Strayhorn - $5M
Kinky - $500K
Bell - $82K

Some rich guy said he likes Bell and may contribute $5M to his campaign.
