I agree. He was very well-spoken. Wasn't nervous at all. Good job.

Nearly every year the east side Republicans in the legislature propose secession from the tyranny of King County. Where is this year's bill? This is the year it could happen if the revote is denied.

Excellent that he got onto this show, and that he reportedly did well. This man is doing the Lord's work.

"SS: King County had 3000 more ballots than registered voters. If those votes would've split the way other votes did in other counties, Rossi would've won".

___________________________________________________

I'm guessing that 2999 of the 3000 mysterious ballots went to GregGore. Toss them out and we have a Dino Rossi landslide.

If it does go to the Wash Supreme Court..what's the judicial make-up politically?..like the Florida Supremes...we may not win this..but I think we get to take down Cantwell in 2006..when the electorate feels they've been had..they tend to punish the party in the next election..

Hey, Sharkansky, I saw you, and you were great! I knew I had heard of you when Brit introduced you. You'll be back!

ken5050, it's not what you'd call a conservative court (not much is, in Washington).

Can one of your more erudite-than-I individuals answer ken5050's question (below) in detail? I don't know the answer specifically enough.

"If it does go to the Wash Supreme Court..what's the judicial make-up politically?.."

Very articulate, well spoken, calm, and precise.

Best explanation yet of how bad the mess is out here.

Great job Stephan!

Hey now, I'm in South King county. I wanna go with 'em. Maybe Seattle proper = King county, Suburbia and rural areas become something more sane.

I can tell you some stuff about the three that ran this time:

Jim Johnson (just elected) is a judicial conservative; he ran on an explicitly anti-judicial-activism platform. He was supported by most Republicans, and we had his literature in Spokane County GOP campaign HQ, although he was not officially endorsed by the party.

Both Barbara Madsen and Richard Sanders were endorsed by the state GOP for re-election. We also gave out Sanders literature at HQ.

I know one who lives on Lake Washington and he really cares about people!! He carries money in his pocket in case he is mugged because muggers need money. That's why muggers mug others, because they need the money. If they had the money then they wouldn't mug others. He also feels a great debt to his fellow man which he proposes to pay with OPM...:-)

If those votes would've split the way other votes did in other counties, Rossi would've won.

I don't believe that they would have split that way. King County is overwhelmingly Democrat, thus they would have split overwhelmingly Dem.

Or perhaps he means something else.

Fairhurst is a liberal.

I'd like to think that you're right, but if Osama Mama Patty Murray was re-elected by the margin she was, I'm not sure there is much hope for unseating the slightly 'better' of the two - Maria Cantwell. I know many are upset about Dino's stolen election, but 2 years from now, unless Maria Does something MORE inflammatory than the "osama built day care centers" it's hard to imagine we'll get rid of her.

Sounds like Charles Johnson may be liberal.
Loginsky's financial support and endorsement come mostly from prosecutors, and much of her criticism of the court stems from the court's rulings and rules related to criminal prosecution.

"It's too often substituting its judgment for that of the people and their elected legislators," Loginsky said of the court.

She's hoping that the same kind of anti-incumbent sentiment that swept incumbent Charles Johnson into office 12 years ago will sweep him out. Without judicial experience, Johnson ousted a sitting justice by running on the populist appeal of his one-man legal practice.

Sanders actually calls himself a libertarian:
