I can't wait for her to get up and cry about high property taxes, "we bought these homes and we use all these utilities that cost so much money, but really, everyone else should carry more of the burden! All those roads to our homes, the pipes, the electric infrastructure, we shouldn't pay for that, no. How dare you charge me for being an arrogant leech!"
Oh, what's that you say? She's a Republican? Even though it's a non-partisan office? Then nevermind.
Mike Gavick, Rossi (2X) and others have all gone down in flames.
What would sell is true red Republican with true Conservative values:
1. No meddling in people's personal lives
2. Low taxes
3. Eliminate fees and taxes
4. Curb spending.
5. Reform and fighting corruption.
6. Dissolve unneeded political entities such as special boards, quasi-governmental corporations, and all the rest of the sponges.
In short, the true limited government.
When is the last time we had a woman with high name recognition run for Mayor around here?
"Is everything in there?"
Inside sarcastic me: "No, I always assume that customers only want 65-70% of the items they buy, so I always keep a few things at the checkout stand. Unless people specifically ask for EVERYTHING."
Actual me: "It sure is; thanks for shopping at Bartell's!"
I never thought I'd have an opportunity to pay her back for that, since I wouldn't watch TV news if you paid me. But I do vote! Hooray! Anyone But Hutchison!
Note to future politicians: Be nice to college kids stuck working at Bartells!
Who can technically say "I'm not on the board" of the very group she was on the board of.
Typical Republicant liar.
I saw her belittle a barista in a Belltown coffee shop back when she was still at KIRO. NOT a good person.
That's enough to sink her campaign, in my eyes.
Lots of money for someone like that to waste running...
Nancy & Joe Guppy on the other hand? Total blast to work with.
Plus, seven years is nothing. People still talk about Emmett Watson and he died in 2001.
My brush with Hutchison: I worked at a fancy retail store back in the late 80s/early 90s and she was a customer. I don't remember anything particular about her except that she was copper-colored and bought a lot of stuff. Since I waited on her, I was glad.
The point is, these races are non-partisan. So why should those journalists at those publications have to point out their partisan affiliations?
You really think they should? I hope you'll give me some good thoughts on this.
I certainly hope that local media outlets spend some time digging into the party affiliations and contacts of major candidates.
I think that Erica herself is a fantastic reporter and could do just fine reporting on issues that Susan Hutchinson supports or doesn't. If she lies ... it's totally appropriate to bring up these partisan things. But why bring them up? They're not important. Important issues aren't partisan or non-partisan. They're just issues.
You can say someone is conservative and liberal --- and show they are via previous news issues --- without having to say what party they're affiliated with.
A good journalist, like Erica, could totally do that. Absolutely.
And mega $$$ coming her way.
I remember her but never thought she had any talent. ANY name famil. works for a beginning political candidate - all to her advantage.
"The Borg manifest as cybernetically enhanced humanoid drones of multiple species, organized as an interconnected collective, the decisions of which are made by a hive mind. The Borg inhabit a vast region of space in the Delta Quadrant of the galaxy, possessing hundreds of vessels and having conquered thousands of systems."
"They operate solely toward the fulfilling of one purpose: to 'add the biological and technological distinctiveness of other species to their own' in pursuit of [lower taxes and an extreme right wing social agenda]. This is achieved through forced assimilation, a process which transforms individuals and technology into Borg, enhancing, and simultaneously controlling, individuals by implanting or appending synthetic components."
