May 5, 2016 Moose in Belltown commented on Clinton Campaign Accidentally Makes Pro-Trump Ad.
No, she's not; she's Hermione Granger, graduated from Hogwarts and university, now an earnest, knowledgeable policy wonk. Hillary is way more aware than the Dumont character. And remember, HIS voters may laugh and be fine with "establishment" Republicans dissing him, but a yoooge majority of the country (polls here:… ) would probably agree with this ad's criticism, even if they aren't Hillary voters. Despair not.
Aug 21, 2013 Moose in Belltown commented on Seattle Media Credulously Regurgitate Industry-Funded "Report" on Paid Sick Leave.
This EPI is not to be confused with the Economic Policy Institute at, which is in part union funded (Richard Trumka is on its board) and which has as a motto "Working for people who work for a living."

Can Seattle media make a mistake as basic as this?

Nov 13, 2012 Moose in Belltown commented on What Should Be the Next Big Goal for Washington Liberals?.
Other: Rights for working people! Right now, Washington follows the at-will rule of employment--unless you have a contract, you can be fired for any (non-discriminatory) reason. The at-will rule undermines anti-discrimination enforcement and labor organizing, because an employer can just say the employee was fired for something other than being gay (for instance) or a "troublemaker." We should work on getting a statute like Montana's which requires employers to fire employees only for cause.
