I kind of hate political debates. They're stiff, they're formal, they turn political candidates into soundbite machines who have to pack their one-minute rebuttals with maximum quips. So for the Portland mayor's race, we're not hosting a debate. We're hosting an inquisition!
Come on down to Rontoms to watch an event that will resemble a smart conversation between humans rather than badminton between political robots. Bring your own questions! And a lust for alcohol! Speaking of which, if you have any questions you particularly want us to ask onstage, feel free to drop them in the comments. I realize this is opening us up to a comment thread demanding we ask Jefferson Smith about the color of his underwear or something, but at least try to keep it relevant.
