winding down...

I just noticed how much taller Murphy is than Tedisco. Quite shocking. They were seated at the previous debate I attended.

Also, I wish I'd kept a tally of how many times Murphy mentioned Barrack Obama's name, and Kirsten Gillirand's name.

We're now into closing statements.

Did you catch Tedisco's comment ?

"At the end of Tuesday night's political debate at the WNYT-TV NewsChannel 13 studio in Menands, moderator Jim Kambrich asked the candidates vying for a seat in the 20th Congressional District to say something nice about one another.

Democrat Scott Murphy spoke of the warm stories he has heard along the campaign trail about Tedisco's mother.

"She's obviously a wonderful woman and I'd like to get the chance to meet her," Murphy said.

During his turn at the microphone, Republican James Tedisco sized up his lanky opponent.

"I'd put him on my basketball team," Tedisco said. "He's tall."

Heightism is rampant these days. I prefer to go by a classic standby, ethnic background.
