It'll be a damn shame to see Nethercutt lose.
I'd sure like to see that woman voted out of office.
She's a disgrace.

How interesting. The people favor the way Bush handles the economy, the war on terror, the direction that he is taking the country, that Chenney is more qualified than Edwards, and that the Swift Boat Vets charges could be true, yet they overwhelmingly want to vote for Kerry.

You just have to love Washington State Dem's. Once they have been bought by the Democratic Party they stay bought.

If all eastsiders vote and only half the westsiders vote Nethercutt may win.

I'll give you two reasons: Inner-city Seattle and an influx of urban white liberals into the Seattle suburbs.

Oh yes... I remember Nethercutt ran on promising to "voluntarily" abide by term limits and when his "time" was up he waffled. He'll lose. Big. If everyone outside of the Sea-Tac (the Lesbian-capital of Amerika) voted for him he'd still lose.

Patty Murray has to be the biggest idiot in the Senate, and that's pretty amazing. The Osama - Day Care comment has to be about the stupidest thing I've ever heard. This woman is so dumb, and so left. I mean, her logic must go something like this: enemies of the United States hate Bush. Bush doesn't want more federal funding of day care centers. Therefore, enemies of the United States must build day care centers at taxpayers' expense. Or something like that. I'm getting a headache just trying to think like she does. Get this woman voted out of hour. Please!

To all of you who don't do much political poll watching, the significant part of this should read:

He's sneaking up on her...and he's carrying a sludge hammer...

Considering previous polls, this is indeed good news. He has plenty of time to knock her down further before election day.

I voted Losertarian in the last election, not because I bought their BS, but because Fish Stick Man failed to do his duty in the Senate during The 'Toon's snow trial.

Most people would see the flaw in your plan. Cantwell...turning over the Senate to the Democrats...yep, you folks sure did teach Gorton a lesson.

As I said before, I'm sure Cantwell was very grateful for your support. It was brilliant intellects like yours that put her over the top and I'm sure she's far more in line with your beliefs then Gorton was.

I srongly suspect it is in Seattle proper. The King County Elections office has some very strange procedures for handling absentee ballots.

The root of the corruption is believed to be found in the trial attorney community, extending through the courts here.

In a nutshell, elections appear to be bought through absentee ballot fraud.

Pierce County (Tacoma) appears to have followed Seattle's lead in this.

Gorton screwed the pooch big time and paid the price by losing my vote. I'll be damned if I'm going to give any Senator a pass who let The 'Toon skate on his high crimes and misdemeaners. Next target--Patty Tennis Shoes.

Yes, thank God you got someone like Maria Cantwell to take his place and turned the Senate over to the Dems. That sure put 'Toon under the gun.

I'll vote to fire any Senator who fails to do his Constitutional duty. I don't give a damn what party he claims to be in. I gave him fair warning before he gave The 'Toon a pass. In retrospect, if he'd have done the honorable thing and voted twice to convict he'd probably still be in office. He didn't, and he thus made it posh to lie in court. I and my children suffered terribly from that popular attitude, so he lost my vote, and there's no way Patty will ever earn it. If I had either within reach I'd also give them a swift kick in the ass--elitist outlaws that they are.

Earn it? Maria Cantwell didn't earn your vote last time either...you simply gave it to her.

Slade ignored my fair warning and look where he is.

I didn't vote for Can't Vote Well, twit, I voted Losertarian. She benefited indirectly, but that's the price the WA 'Icans paid for nominating an outlaw promoter like Slade in the first place. If 'Icans want my vote, they'd best nominate law-abiding and law-respecting candidates.

Finally, reality starts to sink in, "Losertarian". Once you can realize that Maria Cantwell benefited directly you might be able to get help for your addiction.

Fortunately you're witnessing a dying breed. The LP pretty much destroyed itself here last election; because of people like you see on this thread.

When most of the people who fell for the LP BS woke up/sobbered up and saw what they had accomplished, they were cured for good.

This is a prime example of why friends don't let friends vote fringe.

They kept drinking the Koolaide here. As you can see, Senator Gorton ignored their warnings. That sure taught him to go easy on Clinton.

But hey, Maria Cantwell didn't do too bad for herself. Within six months she had become the largest fund raising Senator. Not bad for a freshman Senator and Losertarian pin-up girl.

Excuse me, but I suspect that English is not your first language. Go easy on The 'Toon? That was Fish Stick Man's problem--he helped let The 'Toon skate by not working to subject him to a meaningful trial and by giving him a pass on perjury. Perjury is an incidious crime. Anyone who aids and abets it must go. By the way, why are you aiding and abetting The 'Toon's perjury?

Of course, and just look at how your girl Maria Cantwell got in there and immediately demanded the 'Toons trial.

Oh, that's right...she just go in there, handed the Senate to the Dems, started raising more money then any other Senator and has been voting liberal every since.

Yep, you sure taught Senator Gorton a lesson all right.

Well... this is precisely why -- in a state where the majority of the population, outside of liberal gulags Seattle and Tacoma, actually self-identifies as conservative, politically -- we repeatedly, ETERNALLY end up with the verminous likes of Murray safely ensconced in their seats of political power, sadly.

G-d save us from the pig-ignorant and the unappeasable, here in Washington state; those "more-conservative-than-thou" types who would turn up their snouts even at a resurrected Ronald Wilson Reagan, were the great man ever to descend from the heavens in a golden chariot and deign to run for office hereabouts.

The only "true conservatives" whose existence they ever willingly acknowledge, ultimately, are they themselves, and the voices tantruming and gibbering within their heads... and, sometimes: they even seem to suspect those of manifesting insufficient political piety. :)

If the LP pulls 200 votes for each of their major candidates this election here I would be VERY surprised. Unlike the living example on this thread, most people who bought into the LP BS last time woke up/sobbered up and realized the flaw in their logic. Too late of course.

People like this one didn't teach Senator Gorton a lesson, they taught Washington State conservatives a lesson...the LP is not your friend.

Of course, and just look at how your girl Maria Cantwell got in there and immediately demanded the 'Toons trial.

The 'Toon had already been acquitted by the time Can't Vote Well was instated in January 2001 (The 'Toon only had 17 more days left in his term). But don't let the facts get you confused.

Oh, that's right...she just go in there, handed the Senate to the Dems, started raising more money then any other Senator and has been voting liberal every since.

Actually, she didn't hand the Senate to the 'Rats. Jumpin' Jim Jeffords did that later. And by the way, Slade had somewhat of a liberal voting record--including giving The 'Toon a pass on perjury. Can't get much more liberal than that.

Yep, you sure taught Senator Gorton a lesson all right.

Sure did--he lost his job in an agonizingly close election, and I'm proud to have helped give him the boot. And I'll work to make sure he never again holds elective office.

Bob Wallace's summary on Murray from Sunday's King County Journal:

"At the top of the ticket is the race for U.S. Senate. If you're a Democrat, Patty Murray has to be your choice. She's pro-choice, anti-business, pro-tax, an extreme enviro, a union hack, a Bush hater and a Democrat's dream."

He's being too kind.

I upheld the ideology I support--a nation of laws, not a nation of men. That ideology is far more fundamental than that of Republicanism. Blame me if you must, but consider blaming Slade for abandoning both ideologies.
