Debate distractions: La vibora y el paper teleprompter
I didn't get to see the Pro8News debate for Webb county commissioner precinct 3. However, in looking at the video from KGNS's website, I couldn't help but immediately notice a couple of things.
Candidate Danny Valdez Jr. repeatedly kept using his right hand as an over-actve vibora. Just from the short clip I saw, he was averaging at least 50-60 "piquetes" a minute.
For his part, candidate Cortez probably could have used an electronic teleprompter instead of relying on one made out of paper (his notes). I thought the whole idea was to NOT look shifty eyed. I mean come on, do you really need notes to say " I love my father"?
