I wasn't trying to denigrate anything. I was pointing out common facts that are absent from the equation, lose the chip on the shoulder.
I'm clear as to the nature of politics. If he wants the support of the base he'd better start acting like it or, and as much as I find it distasteful, he'll be unemployed come mid-November.
Quite frankly, if he can't run a better campaign, what kind of senator will he make anyway. I keep thinking about what my mom used to say about the differences between quality and quantity.
McGavick hired several key Rossi campaign staff early on, they departed quickly, quietly about as fast, now we see why. McGavick has the majority of WSRP activists trying hard to help the doofus, yet all he or his underlings do is blow them off.
I hate it also. I was at the Seattle Press Club luncheon in 2004 when McGavick gave his very first political style speech. I was an early supporter.
Look, I'm not gung-ho about McGavick either and frankly I think his chances against StupidWell add up to a very, very long shot. Running a big-bucks corporate CEO from an insurance company (of all things) does not impress me as a good way to win the support of ordinary working stiffs. That said, on balance, the state of SayWA and conservatives there would be better served by retiring Maria in favor of Mikey. Again, that's on balance, given the choices on the table and the chances of one or the other winning. Like I said, I have an interest in honest elections, and the circumstances of NeerDoWell's "win" six years ago were very, very fishy. Turns out it was just the warmup for Fraudoire's theft in '04. The SayWA 'Rats are really proficient and consistent in stealing elections, you'd have to say.
