"I think it's important that Mitt Romney just relax and that we get to see Mitt Romney just for who he is," McMorris Rodgers said.
Solid advice, but as I thought about tonight's debate between Romney and President Barack Obama, I wanted more substance, more depth. So I asked the real experts — The Inlander editorial staff — what advice they'd give the candidates. You're welcome.
Daniel Walters, news writer:
Romney: "Despite how admittedly pimptacular it makes you look, ditch the green tie with all the dollar signs on it."
Obama: "Promise to fix the economy, really for-serious not-even-joking this time, guys."
Luke Baumgarten, arts writer:
Both: "Just be yourself, sweetie."
Chey Scott, listings editor:
Both: "Stop twisting the truth."
Mike Bookey, culture editor:
Romney: "Remember to have Tim The Oil Guy oil all your joints so that the mics don't pick up those pesky robot noises you're always making."
And what do I think? Here's what I think:
Romney: "Go for Obama's jugular like a deranged, starving shark - with a laser beam."
Obama: Step 1 - get Joe Biden on stage. Step 2 - get out of the way."
