Since "trains" is crackerspeak for "black people" throughout the U.S., readers could have reliably inferred McKenna's stance on transit issues generally from his party affiliation, so don't sweat this one.

Well, even a stopped clock is right twice a day. Sound Transit is a mess.

How exactly is Sound Transit a "Mess"?

All this public transportation hullabaloo only accomplishes one thing: subsidizing a lazy minority population that never has and never will take responsibility for there own transportation needs. Light rail is notoriously inefficient. When I go to El Gaucho, I drive right to it, and the valet stores my vehicle for me while I'm being wined and dined by my fellow job creators. Now ask yourself, where in the hell is that poor valet supposed to PARK A TRAIN?!? Huh? Got an answer for that, punk? Well, do ya?

There used to be a dickwad named "Big Don" who lived in Kent and haunted Usenet twenty years ago writing screeds about how the only thing transit is good for is giving Negroid criminals access to your neighborhood so they can steal your TV and whatnot (because you see a lot of guys hauling TVs and stereo speakers on the bus or train, right?). I wonder if that was McKenna.

ZOMG! Haven't thought about Big Don in years!

Ah, Usenet - those were the days!

Republicans never support public transportation. They're pro business and want people to buy cars. Banks get interest rates. Dealers get profits - as do oil companies and repair garages.

Go to any sizable city in a Red State and check out the bus system. Very crappy service and the only people you ever see on a bus are maids, farm workers, and other poor people. Even poor white people will serially spend $1000 on a shitmobile every other year so that they don't have to ride the bus.

That's what that goon is trying to do in Washington.

Aaand Goldy has finally swung my vote. Sorry McKenna, light rail is an important future for transit here. While I don't think you could affect some of the other things espoused here as "omg he's so bad for", this one could wind up directly in your sphere of influence.
