Oh my stars and garters! Kirkpatrick has always seemed the even-tempered embodiment of rural Arizona, someone who lived the life and talked the talk. So, it was jarring to see her unbounded contempt for opponent Jonathan Paton. She accused him of dissembling and pandering, attacks that executed with finesse would have been acceptable in a [...]
Granted, I watched the debate at a bar with a group of Democrats so it was a biased crowd but I and many of my viewing companions did not see this Obama debacle that so many others did. I was live tweeting it, and from all the blubbering and moaning I was seeing online you [...]

The Phoenix City Council District 6 candidates debate at the Biltmore tonight (6:30pm). I’ll send periodic updates through Twitter, so follow DemocraticDiva to get updates as I tweet them. I’m not as pithy or sarcastic as Donna, but I’ll do my best to entertain. Disclaimer: I support Dana Kennedy but will be as unbiased as [...]
Providing my take of the debate between 5:30 and 6:30 am. Which means I have to get up at horrible o’clock in the morning. I don’t know about y’all, but I’m pretty frosted about that dismissal of “women’s health” by McCain.
