Revenge of Medina
Republican gubernatorial candidate Debra Medina is trying to make a comeback following her stumble on a nationally televised news program last week in which she failed to dissociate herself from the idea that the Bush administration played a part in the 9/11 attacks. She landed a nice profile in today's New York Times which portrayed her, correctly, as a candidate even further to the right of Gov. Hair, if that's humanly possible. But then even Hair hasn't proposed goofy ideas like one to replace the property tax with a 15 percent sales tax. The story says her candidacy might force the GOP race into a runoff, but that's still questionable because most of her support so far seems to have come at the expense of Sen. Hutch, not Hair, who is currently polling around 47 percent of the likely right-wingnut Republican primary voters.
