I watched the Republican U.S. Senate candidate's debate last evening. Not really that interesting, to be perfectly honest. Even Johnny Byrd didn't make a complete idiot of himself. Mel Martinez was the voice calling for walking in lockstep with G.W. Bush (then shouldn't we just make him King?), while Bill McCollum tried to picture himself as the perfect conservative. Doug Gallagher seemed to be the most interesting of the bunch; at least he has the freshest voice. Too bad his people don't know any better, and all his illegally placed signs on the right-of-way on U.S. 98 between Lakeland and Bartow --- and there's a BUNCH OF 'EM --- will likely be picked up by a couple of fanataical Keep Polk Clean And Beautiful folks I know. They do that for every candidate --- Republican, Democrat, Green, youth sports, or chiropracter.
Anyway, it got to the point that near the end I just turned the telly off it became sooooo boring. Never thought I would say it, but the Democratic debate last week was more exciting.
Speaking of which, former presidential candidate Howard Dean's organization Democracy for America has endorsed Betty Castor's campaign for U.S. Senate, naming her as one of the latest "Dean Dozen"
