The Massachusetts Gubernatorial candidates will be facing off in a televised debate tonight on FOX25. Participants will be:

Deval Patrick (Democrat) Lieutenant Governor Kerry Healey (Republican) Christy Mihos (Independent) Grace Ross (Green-Rainbow)

Yes, that's right, the Grace Ross that attended a fund-raiser for the "resistance" a week ago Sunday. The Grace Ross whose party officers and prominent members have a history of taking disturbing anti-semitic stands. The Grace Ross whose national Green Party supports a comprehensive boycott of all things Israeli.

Here is a search for the term Green Rainbow on this blog. Here's a search for "Ron Francis" that is also relevant here.

Finally, here is a page at FOX25's site where one may submit questions for the candidates.

Here are some potential questions for Grace Ross:

Do you agree with your party's stand on Divestment and Sanctions for the State of Israel?
Do you support a two-state solution in the Middle East?
Do you support the right of self-determination for the Jews of the Middle East, and for the State of Israel to set its own immigration standards?
Why does your party expend so much energy on matters of international relations? What does that have to do with the environment or our state?
If membership in your party is open to all, why is it dominated by Hamas supporters, those who want to boycott Israel and those who believe Zionism is racism?
Do you believe Zionism is racism?
Do you repudiate those in your party who hold these positions?
Why, on Sunday the 17th, did you attend a fund-raiser for "the resistance?" Isn't it at best unseemly, and at worst illegal for a candidate for office to attend a gathering where violence was called for not only against American allies, but America itself?
How do you repond to the accusation that your party is "the most openly anti-Semitic party operating in the American political mainstream today?"

I'm sure you can think of others.

[Oh, BTW, Grace, it's "Healey." Note the spelling.]

Post debate update: Was there a debate? I was too busy staring at Deval Patrick. He's dreamy. Seriously, I just want to ask all the candidates (except Grace Ross) if I can have 100 bucks. C'mon, they're loaded. OK, really seriously, big win for Grace Ross (and Deval, though not because it was good for Grace, that was bad for Deval). Being on the stage with real people and avoiding having to answer for her and her party's anti-semitism can't help but be good for her.
