KHON AARP Debate, Charles Djou Too Stiff, Colleen Hanabusa Sounds Akamai

Okay, spent time listening to the KHON, AARP debate between Charles Djou and Colleen Hanabusa.  Short and sweet here.  I’m an independent and I’m still listening.  But man, Charles Djou sounds way to crafted and stiff with his responses.  I guess the over-coaching is at a point of diminished returns for Charles Djou.  On the other hand, Colleen Hanabus was sounding very Akamai and AARP friendly.  Not to say that she doesn’t carry the same type of political rhetoric of her party, Hanabusa really talked to the people.

I sat next to my friends that were in the AARP curve that felt Hanabusa was at least giving them some idea on how and why things were happening in all the bills that have been passed or pushed.  My republican friend cringed most of the time and said “damn, he’s killing us with his sterile pitch.”  You tell me….  I’m still listening.  I haven’t made up my mind.

Mufi Hannemann, Neil Abercrombie, Duke Aiona and “Mr. Sun Cho Lee” Music Video Mashup:)

All I have to say about this is watch the video.  It doesn’t seem to be a direct hit on any of the candidates but more like a wake up call to voters.  I have to admit that I didn’t know who 1/3 of these people were.  Some funny stats that are questionable but at least it makes you think.

Using Keola Beamer song “Mr. Sun Cho Lee” put’s it over the top especially the last few lines of the song.  Though the classic song might have a spin on race and ethnicity, it’s tastefully done and in this case, adds a sence of humor to a serious time in Hawaii’s politics.
