While Oregon Sen. Gordon Smith (R.) tries to fuzz his ties to the GOP and his unswerving devotion to the Bush agenda (in between lurches to the center around election time), at least Oregon voters in the First District have a choice that’s actually interesting: either Democrat David Wu, considered a huge disappointment and one of the least effective members of Congress (he’s so lame that even the Oregonian, who typically only stops endorsing incumbents after they’ve been six feet under for months, endorsed his primary opponent) or this guy.

I don’t know if that guy’s got any of the right answers, but he’s sure got the right questions.
