Oregon Politicians Gots Style!

So, those of you not living in Oregon likely don't know about this, but one of our Senators (Republican Gordon Smith) comes up for re-election this year. There's a hotly contested battle for the Democratic nomination between Oregon House Speaker Jeff Merkley and long-time Democratic activist Steve Novick.

Novick isn't your typical candidate... he's short and he has a hook for one hand. He really knows how to play off his physical issues, though. Check these campaign ads - they're pretty funny.

This one's got a real "hook" to it :)

Hey, you Oregonians who haven't been paying attention and haven't thought about which candidate is better... you might want to take a look at this blog discussion. It's a pretty good description of people's perceptions about the candidates.
