6:14 PM yesterday DOUG. commented on What Would It Take? Labor Stands by Mayor Ed Murray Despite Sexual Abuse Allegations.
So David Westberg is comparing his union members to evangelical sheep and Ed Murray to Donald Trump? You might want to take a different tack there, buddy.
8:51 AM yesterday DOUG. commented on The Morning News: Seattle Home Prices Continue Climbing, WA Republican Senator Wants Seattle to Become Its Own County.
Yes, home prices in Seattle are expensive, but it's a little silly to compare today's housing prices to those of five years ago (which was pretty much the depth of the housing market) and say, "Oh my god, prices have doubled!"

My house has gained about 45% in value in the 11 years since I bought it, which when compounding interest is really only 3.5% a year.
Apr 21 DOUG. commented on Murray's Other 2008 Accuser: "I Want Him to Resign".
@15: I think Murray wants you to believe that this is a conspiracy orchestrated by the Trump administration to punish Seattle for being a sanctuary city. Seems totally plausible, right?
Apr 21 DOUG. commented on Ed Murray Supports a City Income Tax and He’d Really Like You to Think It Was His Idea (It Wasn't).
Ed Murray should run for state office and try to change Washington's laws prohibiting an income tax. Maybe state representative or senator. Or both.

Resign, Ed. Do it today. This afternoon. A sunny Friday when people are otherwise occupied. Try to bury it. And just go away.
Apr 19 DOUG. commented on Thursday Night Is Your First Chance to Watch Seattle's Mayoral Candidates Debate.
It's stupid to have a debate before the filing deadline.
Apr 17 DOUG. commented on Mike McGinn Gives a First Glimpse at His Mayoral Campaign Platform.
@5: Yeah, McGinn had a "security detail". Nice try.
Apr 17 DOUG. commented on Mike McGinn Gives a First Glimpse at His Mayoral Campaign Platform.
The city council treated Mike McGinn like the Republicans in congress treated Barack Obama. They refused to work with him then blamed him for getting nothing done. Fortunately there are some new faces on the council now, some likely to be a bit more open-minded to McGinn 2.0.

Ed Murray's response is classic Murray. Attack with half-truths (McGinn never called Gregoire a liar) and whine about divisiveness while dividing. Ed Murray is running his last race. I wish he'd just resign.

Fuck yeah! Sanity returns.
