commented on Mike McGinn Is Running for Mayor Again
I don't think the Seattle Times meant McGinn when they talked about more "mainstream" candidates. From the moment he was elected Mayor, the establishment (Democratic Party, Council and local news media attacked him. (Remember Gregoire trashing him and WDOT releasing the via-duct earthquake footage near election time?) His term as mayor demonstrated how the local "progressive" establishment wasn't really that progressive.

Hooray! Let's celebrate this over-budget boondoggle. Who's going to pay the cost over run? Who knows. But the important thing to remember, rich developers and land owners will soon have a big increase in their property values when their views open up on the waterfront. The system works!*
(For the rich.)

I know I sound crazy, but a lot of people have been manipulated and have been on the receiving end of disinformation and misinformation. Rather thank being a condescending twat, why not try to reach out and find common ground. It could lead to crazy stuff like election victories and cleaning up the corruption in government.
