The matchup between the two candidates for U.S. Senate will be aired by KERA, the PBS station in Dallas. I’m on the panel, and I have been trying to come up with good questions. All I can think of are the questions I’d really like to ask. How about, for Senator Cornyn: Has it ever occurred to you to actually vote for the best interests of your state on immigration and CHIP instead of parroting the right-wing conservative line? For Representative Noriega: Could you please explain why you have positioned yourself as a liberal Democrat in a state in which Republicans have held all 29 statewide elected offices for the last ten years? And for Cornyn: Have you had second thoughts about hitching your wagon to the George Bush’s star? Third thoughts? Fourth thoughts? And for Noriega: Is there anything you haven’t promised to spend money on? Is there anything you have promised to pay for? And for Cornyn: If someone wants to marry a box turtle, why should Congress stand in the way? And for Noriega: So, how’s the fundraising going?
