commented on Is Washington Ready For A Second Socialist? Jess Spear Launches Campaign Against House Speaker Frank Chopp
The current state of Olympia is stalemate. Somehow losing Chopp means the stalemate ends and Republicans suddenly can pass law? And why is that?
And is there some special reason why a Socialist can't caucus with the Democrats? Does the presence of Bernie Sanders weaken US Senate Democrats? Of course not.
The worst case is that we go from stalemate to a different stalemate. And the upside is Washington Democrats will realize it's time to be something better than just the lesser of two evils.
(Fear not. Fnarf's kindergarten name calling loses its sting after the first day of school. It turns into so much background noise after a while.)
