Well, this morning, we got a nice surprise on the tree: A poster "wishing" for the return of "missing" Republican governor candidate Chris Dudley. We immediately thought back to this stunt from last month.
Not so subtly, it pokes fun at Dudley's reticence to appear in public debates. His Democratic rival, John Kitzhaber, is appearing by himself this afternoon at the Portland City Club—a venue known for its high degree of difficulty, what with candidates subjected to a "truth squad" when their answers inevitably veer off message. The City Club is calling this a "one-chair debate." It's not the first for Kitzhaber in recent weeks. The candidates have had just one real debate so far—last week—and it seems it might be the only one.
