That's why the $5,000 plate dinner is here. Geez. Get a clue. Your enemies are sitting right at your table. Heck, they own your table, chair and you.
We call her Katrina Cathy --after her suspicious ten-day disappearing act during the worst of our firestorms and her failure to address waves of wildfire related homeowner's insurance cancellations.
Almost all of Spokane media is now owned by the notoriously corrupt Cowles family--and despite her acknowledged incompetence, the Spokesman Review still endorsed McMorris Rodgers precisely because she hadn't accomplished anything they could point to-- other than that pesky unresolved ethics issue.
McMorris Rodgers is a simpleton placeholder of limited intelligence. She lies at town meetings, gets busted in those lies via a simple google search, and now refuses to do open town hall meetings, like ever.
McMorris Rodgers also seems to benefit from a secret "gentlewoman's" turf agreement with Sen Cantwell and Murray-- who both refused to endorse Colville Federated Tribal powerhouse Dem Joe Pakootas or be seen actively campaigning with him and with the aid of disgraced, former State Dem chair Ravens, Pakootas found himself fighting both partie's leadership in his bid to unseat McMorris Rodger's.
Nevermind her longstanding career is not merit based, but one defined by appointments, being propped up by local media, and the enablement of the state's Dems. Her degree comes via an unaccredited, at the time, fundamentalist diploma mill.
Hmmm, could it be Sen Murray gets a highway to nowhere funded out of Metaline WA to benefit Tech Comico, aka the Columbia River's most toxic dumper north of Hanford, so yeah, whatever, it seems fitting Murray'd be opposed to rubbing shoulders with the best candidate to challenge McMorris Rodgers since Mc Morris Rodger's replacement of Netthercutt. Pakootas successfully hauled the Canadian Mining company through the courts, creating an embarrassing situation for corporate addict Murray, now hard put to rationalize the corporate welfare, environmentally sketchy road she'd just got funded at taxpayer expense, and explain away the malfeasance of the worthless EPA.
Meanwhile the open pit uranium mine on the Spokane Nation remains a 5-decade long toxic nightmare and McMorris Rodgers and Murray/Cantwell seem loathe to assist the Spokane Tribe in getting their casino built to maybe fund the same health clinics the Kalispel's already got built.
Politics are messy in the 5th-- a fitting mirror to the politicians of both parties who claim to represent us. No wonder Pakootas/Sanders posed such a threat to "the order" of all things eastern WA.
But neither the State or National Democrats seemed to care. All they seemed to care about was how much MONEY we could raise.
