Republican gubernatorial candidate Rob McKenna dropped by the studios of 95.7 KJR today for an interview on the Bob Rivers Show.

McKenna talked about how would fully fund public schools and reduce government spending in part by paying less on the health care insurance premiums of state workers. McKenna said the state now spends more on those insurance premiums than it does on higher education.

He got asked about his opponents’ use of less than glamorous photos of him in their television attack ads.

“It’s part of the silliness of politics,” McKenna said. “If you take that stuff seriously, you probably shouldn’t be running for office.”

And Rivers asked about the a sheepshank knot.

Then came the coffee challenge. He was given two cups of hot brew, one filled with a Starbucks blend and the other with a 7-11 product.

After tasting them both, he said of the second cup it had a “strong almost burnt flavor. It’s got to be Starbucks.”

He was right.
