Jerry Kilgore is not the father of my child ... and other debate afterthoughts
A few random thoughts from Sunday night's gubernatorial debate:
Much has been made over Jerry Kilgore's accent but it's really not that severe. There are just subtleties in his pronunciations you need to get used to. A primer:
"Commonwealth" is pronounced "Cummumwealth."
"Rather" is pronounced "ruther."
"Taxes" is pronounced "Texas."
"Tim Kaine" is pronounced "liberal."
Is Tim Kaine controlling his left eyebrow or is it controlling him?
Funny, huh, that Kaine was wearing the red tie and Kilgore was wearing the blue tie?
In as sophisticated a manner as some adults choose their preferred candidate, my 5-year-old daughter declared herself for "the blue-tie guy" (Kilgore) saying, "Oh, he looks handsome to me. He looks like Daddy." (Disclaimer: Jerry Kilgore is not the father of my child.)
