Following on the suggestion, or rather comment, of a RedNoVA reader, I took the liberty of attending a debate between Keith Fimian and Gerry Connolly.Hahahahaha, gotta love it. Also hilarious is the comments section, where someone tries to excuse Fimian's performance by offering the novel excuse, "Fimian should know better not to walk into that debacle setup by Chinese Cult sympathizers Connolly and Wolf." Ahhhh...a "Chinese Cult." I seeeeeee....(rolls eyes).
Let me just say that it was horrible. I mean...HORRIBLE. Aside from the mere fact that out of the hundreds of Connolly signs there was not a single Fimian sign, the performance of Keith pushed embarrassing.
I will give Fimian the benefit of the doubt and say that maybe this was just a bad night for him. But, if this is how he performs regularly, he is in serious trouble in Fairfax County atleast. Repeating the same talking points over and over and over again is not going to cut it. The economy here isn't bad enough for him to just ride a wave. He needs to know specifics, throw out facts, be able to deliver a solid rebuttal to Gerry.
I will also even say that even if Fimian was right on every answer and response, his delivery was just so bad it wouldn't have made a difference anyway. I'm not making a judgement on whether or not he would be a good Member of Congress, but he's a terrible debater.
