Election Results Open Thread

Early results are coming in on the statewide ballot measures, and it doesn’t look good for Tim Eyman.  In Spokane, Lewis, Franklin and Island counties, I-1033 is performing dramatically worse than Eyman’s I-960 did in 2007. Based on even these early results, I’m ready to call it.  I-1033 loses.

UPDATE (8:15):
King County reports. With 23.5% reporting (I’m guessing, about 60% of the eventual total), Dow Constantine leads Susan Hutchison by a commanding 57-43 margin. That’s toast.

UPDATE (8:26):
Just to put turnout in perspective, King County has reported about 254,000 ballots counted thus far. Unofficially, I’m told that there were 350,000 ballots in hand as of Friday at 5PM, and that elections projects about 650,000 ballots to be counted over all. So there are a lot more ballots left to count in King. Keep that in mind when considering close races, and particularly R-71.

UPDATE (8:36):
Given my previous comments about King County, knowing that the ballots reported thus far are solely from batches received by Friday, and seeing as the polls appear to have trended toward McGinn, I tend to believe that his slim 50-49 percent lead over Joe Mallahan will not only hold up, but expand.

UPDATE (8:50):
I-1033 is getting its ass kicked. In Eastern Washington. Lincoln, Spokane, Garfield, Columbia, Asotin, Whitman, Adams, Walla Walla and Kittitas counties have all gone No on I-1033, some of them by pretty impressive margins. I’m looking pretty prescient right about now, huh?

UPDATE (9:33):
With all the counties reporting something, R-71 is up 51.1 to 48.9. But looking at the turnout figures on the SOS’s website, I’m pretty confident it will expand its lead by a couple points.

    So far it looks like R-71 is passing and I-1033 is failing. If the trend continues I predict Tim Eyman will give up the initiative business and register as Michael Dunsmire’s domestic partner.

    Ditto on teh funny MarkS. Well done.

    Let’s all breathe a big sigh of relief that we dodged the bullet with Hutchison losing. Especially when you consider what I believe was her real plan, which was to act as the Republican fox in the hen house of King County elections. The GOP knows that “Floridating” the King County vote is key to handing over our state to the GOP presidential and gubernatorial candidates in 2012. That won’t be happening now.

    Little Timmy took out a big second mortgage on his house, presumably believing that he could use it to prove to his financial backers that he could deliver.
    If I-1033 goes down in flames, perhaps his backers will go find a better investment. And he’ll go back to his former life as a cheesy salesman of overpriced-college-logo-watches.
    One can only hope.

    Okay okay this political horseshit aside

    A guy is driving around the back woods of Washington and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: ‘Talking Dog For Sale’

    He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.

    ‘You talk?’ he asks.

    ‘Yep,’ the Lab replies.

    After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says ‘So, what’s your story?’

    The Lab looks up and says, ‘Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA. In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.’ ‘I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running. But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn’t getting any younger so I decided to settle down.

    I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals.

    I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I’m just retired.’

    The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog. ‘Ten dollars,’ the guy says.

    ‘Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?’

    ‘Because he’s a liar. He never did any of that shit.’

    I think R-71 will end up passing. But honestly, I’m still embarrassed by Washington state. I’m ashamed of 49% of Washington voters. NO one. No one except the KKK and neo-Nazi’s will look back in 2050 and think this was a brave vote to stop the ‘evil gays’ from taking over or whatever the lunatics fear. It’s embarrassing that this isn’t passing by 80%-90%. I know the future will be better for gay people. But being in the middle of this, and watching my fellow citizens say that gay couples shouldn’t have the same civil rights is…pathetic and kind of sad. I know every civil rights fight feels like this, feels unbelievable, like you can’t even imagine someones “fighting” you and on the other side. Thinking there were people who fought FOR slavery, and fought FOR keeping women from voting, and fough FOR keeping blacks from marrying whites. The very fact that there’s another SIDE to this is jaw dropping at times.

    The ONLY argument I hear, the only folks on the “other side” here say, “it’s against my religion”. Great. And the Amish don’t believe in using electricity, and the Mormons liked multiple wives, and the Jewish tradition bans pork, Muslims aren’t supposed to drink, and so on…great. Then don’t do it. Don’t drink, don’t eat pork, don’t use electricity. I don’t care. I don’t want anyone to change THEIR religion. Just stop trying to pass laws telling ME I can’t eat a hot dog, or have a beer, or use electricity. Why is this not obvious?

We’re ACTUAL people. We DO exist. We DO fall in love, for real, and want to get married. I’m sorry that offends you. I’m sorry if blacks, Jews or gays scare you. But we’re real people, not some political football. How DARE you attack me like that. To you it’s just some abstract political fight against something you view as “liberal” so you have to attack it. But it’s REAL people’s actual lives.

    I’m SORRY if you have to tell children that gays exist, but it’s reality. Why is reality SUCH a problem for you?

    I understand your sentiments. But, let me harken back to the Cheney/Bush years, and those whom we call “puppy barbecuers.” Then, there was about 25-30% of the American population that if told that Dick Cheney was barbecuing live puppies on the White House lawn because he was a great patriot and that puppy-barbecuing was anti-terrorist, would believe it. Not only that, but that segment of our population would insist on barbecuing some puppies themselves. That segment of the population is always out there–Cynical, Little Ricky Dumbass, Puddybud, Mark1, they are members of the club. The puppy-barbecuers, unfortunately, vote in droves, even in off-year elections. So, the numbers you’d like to see on a nobrainer issue like R-71, just can’t happen (unless the Oklahoma Project moves forward, and we deport all puppy-barbecuers to Oklahama, where they, and we, will be happier).

    Re 40 and 45

    I voted yes on R71, because personal sexual choice should not be the business of government. The same rights I have as a hetorosexual you should have.

    If the state recognizes a heterosexual civil union it should recognize a gay one. I can’t, wouldn’t and shouldn’t be able to refuse to rent one of my houses to a gay couple. I can’t refuse to hire a person based on their orientation and shouldn’t be able to.

    All of this should be gauranteed, except the right to get married. That word means something. For, at the very most, 5% of the population to decide to adopt a lifestyle, then demand that everyone else work around them is antisocial.

    Yes my religion teaches that homosexuality is a sin, and even an abomination. This doesn’t mean gay people are evil or that “Jesus hates gay people.” It just means that, by the lights of that religion people can make bad choices, like adultery, or stealing, or homosexuality.

    But this is about social issues, not religious ones, for me at least. The building block for any functional society is the family, and the state has both the right and the duty to protect that institution.

    Hey man, Jesus didn’t hate. And, if you read the Gospels (that would be Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John), which is where the words of Christ are recorded), he never whispered a word about gay people (nor, gasp! abortion). Christ loved. As someone said a long time back with regard to our “Christian” wingnuts, “The Religious Right is neither.” Beckians and Limbaughians and Palinites are not Christians. They are first and foremost political creatures who disregard the clearly liberal thrust of Scripture when Scripture is not consistent with their political views.

    #62 I appreciate your support, but you need some education. First, you have opinion, I have fact. I know first hand this isn’t a “lifestyle”. I don’t have a super power. I, like you, do not have the ability to change my sexuality. You didn’t “choose” to be straight…ever. I know this. So do you. You never made a choice, you couldn’t CHOOSE to become attracted to men, have dreams about men, and be sexually attracted to men, even if you WANTED. Are you saying you could? You could actually flip some switch and choose who you find attractive?

    And your religion finds it a sin? So what? I’m not in your religion. The Jews know pork is a sin. The Amish think god doesn’t want them to use electricity. I don’t want YOU to change your views, but I’m OFFENDED by you telling me I can’t get married because YOUR religion doesn’t like it. I don’t care. It’s none of your business.

    If you want to play that, I WANT the Jews to pass laws forbidding YOU from eating a hot dog. Sure it’s not YOUR religion, but it’s SOMEONE’s religion and they believe it so YOU should be forced to live by it!

    After all marriage is for procreation only. That’s why Washington state currently only allows marriages if you can produce children. Oh wait, that’s not true. 89 year old couples who can’t have children can get married (if they’re straight). 25 year old couples who choose not to have children can get married (if they’re straight). Dude, SATANIST can get married legally (if they’re straight).

    I appreciate you a religious conviction. But how can you not get the point? If you think pork, alcohol or electricity if forbidden to you by your god, then by ALL MEANS don’t do them! Problem over. But by what right do you have to tell others to leave by your religious laws by force of secular state law? It’s ok if your CHURCH doesn’t want to marry gays or perform gay unions. That’s ok! But you’re telling Buddhists they can’t get married to someone of the same sex because YOUR religion doesn’t like it?

    You are correct that there is a great proportion of the anti-gay people who just wish gay people did not exist. They can’t believe God created gay people, and so they try to wish them away. They hate issues that confuse them. (By the way,lost @ 62, I can respect your distinction between the civic and the religious; I sometimes think the notion of “marriage” should be something reserved for religions, without the state’s involvement.) The bottom line is that we are all frail and flawed humans. To the extent that “rights” are recognized by our civil authorities, we should all share in them equally. I think that day is coming, don’t you?

    I do understand that gay marriage is scary. It seems like an ‘attack’ to the right wing. Irony of course. Because to me, it’s not attacking, it’s defending. You straight people have TOTALLY made a mess of marriage with your shotgun marriages, drunken Vegas quickie marriages, celebrity marriages. The highest divorce rate is in the south, the conservative area of the country. I don’t WANT people to get divorced or families to break up. I don’t want my brother to divorce his wife. I just want my partner to be able to inherit my social security benefits if I die just like my brothers spouse can. I don’t see that as an evil attack on society. I’m not doing this out of hate, or some mean spirit, I’m doing this out of love. The other side, is fighting this out of fear and hate. When I see love fighting fear…it’s obvious which is right, not matter how you argue it.

    I don’t mean to come off too rough. I do appreciate your support of R-71. The marriage thing just always burns me personally. I just don’t buy the religious argument. Sorry. Gay marriage must be fought because it’s against your religion? I don’t believe you. Sorry. Why?

    I guarantee you, correct me if I’m wrong, that you’ve never signed a petition or fought to make Hinduism illegal in this state? Or stop Hindu marriages? Why? Gotta stop the gay marriage because that offends your god? Dude, doesn’t the Bible tell you “no other gods before me”? Isn’t worshiping Shiva or Ganish just as much, or more, of a sin than being a Christian who just happens to be gay? You let people worship other gods, get married and blessed under those gods, including even Satanists, and never lift a finger.

    That’s why I’ve never bought the B.S. that’s it’s religious. Then follow your conviction and outlaw ALL of the things the Bible says are wrong. How can you just pick and choose one or two things to make illegal? Isn’t the ENTIRE Bible magically true…not just a few paragraphs? Or are you going to tell me the U.S. Constitution and states allow “other religions”, and we must “render unto Caesar” and all that? :)

    That reminds me of an argument I had with a Conservative on here about torture. I tried the “who would Jesus torture” question, and I got back this theological explanation that our GOVERNMENT doesn’t have to follow what Jesus or the Bible would do…that it’s ok for Bush to order torture because the Bible tells us with the “render unto Caesar” passage that certain functions are the domain and providence of government.

    So our government can torture people, and have Hindu marriages, just not allow gays marriage, that would make god angry. Really? It’s that sort of inconsistency that drives me mad. if you want to follow the Bible, or Koran, or Upanishads, or whatnot…then follow them…EVERY SINGLE WORD. If they’re magically true, then it’s ALL true and you don’t get to pick and choose the “comfortable” passages and just write off the crazy stuff. Sorry.

    Re 66

    I couldn’t begin to understand the problems and joys of your life, and don’t pretend to do so. The two issues you bring up I hear all the time though. First you assume that the only objection to gay marraige is religious. Second, if promoting the family is the secular goal of marraige and why society protects it, what about childless couples?

    I only brought up the religious issue because you or someone else did. Religious convictions and legislation are separated by our Federal and, so far as I know, State Constitution, of which I approve. I also brought it up to refute what to me is a badly flawed assessment of Christianity as a hating religion. But that’s neither here nor there. If you wish to see it as a hateful and bigoted religion that certainly is your choice. Given the statements of some of its’ protagonists I could even understand that view.

    Marraige is a fundamental element in society because it promotes families. Families are the basic element of any functional society. For instance, your parents instilled in you that sense of justice so agrieved by people who would take away your civil rights for your choices. This sense is what makes laws and the enforcement of them possible. Presumably they gave you a sense of what’s good and bad by way of behavior. Without the family instilling in children a basic sense of how to behave and why we do so, society would collapse.

    Because 89 year old couples celebrate their love in marraige doesn’t invalidate this. We use words as symbols in human society, and marraige is a symbol which a tiny minority simply doesn’t have the right to change for their convenience at the peril of the larger society. If this offends you I am deeply sorry, as it certainly isn’t my intent.

    @62: I don’t see the problem. “Civil marriage” as the law sees it is a civil contract. How could it be anything else? What government could tell god what to do? Civil marriage already diverges from church marriage; some churches do not recognize most civil divorces, for instance. No law can make any church marry gay people–that’s a clear violation of the first amendment. So…what’s the issue here?

    * NJ – A governors office that has been held by Republicans 16 of the last 28 years, goes to a Republican. Ok, 50/50 split there.

    * NY – A house race was won by a Democrat in a district that has NEVER elected a Democrat (even when voting for Obama). BIG win for Democrats.

    Gay marriage is a trojan horse. The real reason behind it is religious persecution. If gay marriage becomes legal in all 50 states then the next step will be to make it a right. If it is a right than the courts will have to decide whic right is more important the right to marry or the right to religion. If marriage is declared a more important right that clergy will have to preform the ceremonies or face jail time or fines. In canada just saying that homosexuality is wrong or a sin from the pulpit can get you thrown on prison. I think that movement is alive and well in America.

Without their permission, the Wirthlin’s 2nd-grade son was read “King & King,” a book about a prince who turns away from every princess he meets, until he finally falls in love with another prince and “marries” him. According to Robb Wirthlin, when he and his wife lost a legal challenge against the school, it was troubling for him to hear the judge suggest “that the state must teach these things to children before they’ve had a chance to make up their own minds.”

    Maine Voters Reject Gay Marriage Law

    Maine voters repealed a state law Tuesday that would have allowed same-sex couples to wed

    “Five other states have legalized gay marriage — starting with Massachusetts in 2004, and followed by Vermont, New Hampshire, Connecticut and Iowa — but all did so through legislation or court rulings, not by popular vote. In contrast, constitutional amendments banning gay marriage have been approved in all 30 states where they have been on the ballot.”

    Rasmussen has their finger firmly on the pulse of LIKELY VOTERS!!

    So here is your KLOWN-in-Chief today–

    Wednesday, November 04, 2009

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 28% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -13. That’s just one point above the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President.

    @51 But Right Wingers don’t like facts do they.

    Here are some facts:

    Eager to drain the 2009 elections of drama and import, White House press secretary Robert Gibbs claimed Tuesday night that President Barack Obama was “not watching returns.”

    You can be sure that he is studying them closely now: The off-year elections were, in two big races, an unmistakable rebuke of Democrats, reshuffling Obama’s political circumstances in ways likely to have severe near-term consequences for his policy agenda and larger governing strategy.

    Independents took flight from Democrats. They suffered humiliating gubernatorial losses in traditionally Democratic New Jersey, where Obama lent his prestige in a pair of eleventh-hour campaign rallies Sunday, and in Virginia, which had been trending leftward and just last year was held up as an example of how Obama was redrawing the political map in his favor.

    If unemployment is still high when the the mid-terms roll around, or we dip again in the economy or people get the chills from health care “reform” or Afghanistan rages, those independents who abandoned Dems in droves in NJ and Virginia are just an indication of what will happen more broadly.

    – Having drinks with an adult is a legal activity.

    – Flirting with someone who does not work for you is not harassment.

    – “Not having sex with someone” is never rape.

    Hi Michael-

    I’m actually a kind of “bad blogger”. I would like to update more, but life kinda gets in the way. Hell…I probably spend too much time here toying with trolls. Sigh…but it’s fun. Who doesn’t love delivering a good liberal ass kicking.

    If the Pudddydummy can’t attack…he’s got nothing. None of the shit he believes in works, so he can’t explain how what he thinks is so great is good for anybody. Here’s a hint, brainiac…saying “God thinks it’s a good idea” just doesn’t cut it. Ellen Craswell tried it, Suzie tried it…whatever. It’s gotta have nuts, it’s gotta have bolts, it’s gotta make sense.

    Capiche?

    P.S.-

    Dearest Little Troll Buddies…if all this St. Ronnie crap was so great…the electorate would have kept it going. If the electorate believed that public services don’t have to be PAID FOR I-1033 would have passed. Finally…you foolish people are completely unmasked. You can now have your little cage matches for the amusement of all the rest of us as you drift onto the dust-bin of history. And in conclusion, I would like to sincerely, and I mean that sincerely…no!, I’m really, really, really sincere here…really…THANK YOU for destroying the Republican Party. After Ike and Everett Dirkson and Edward Brooke…and Dan Evans here ferchristssake you clowns took over and ran the thing right into the ditch. Good job. Keep it up. Thanks again. Carry on!

    Can one of you so-called conservatives point to the platform document that details how government should intrude into people’s personal affairs? Where does it say government is responsible for imposing the morality of a religious group onto the rest of the population?

    I used to think I was fiscally conservative and socially liberal. Now I think I was just being reasonable. Because now a days, I have no idea what “conservative” means. And I’m pretty sure no one else does either. It’s just a tribal label used by the trogs to paper over their regressive beliefs.

    What was learned in the NY-23 race.

    Republicans suffered a humiliating loss where they drummed a winning Republican candidate out of the race and handed the Democrats a seat they haven’t held since the Ulysses Grant administration. Republicans everywhere are overjoyed–no one understands why.

    Net gain in the House for Democrats this cycle – 2 seats.

    Please, PLEASE do the same thing in Florida next year.

    It’ll be interesting to see the Rovian shenanigans Christie will pull – may he go WAY over the top as is the Rovian way.

    The other guy will look out of step with a changing VA soon enough.

    Moronic babbling.
    McDonnell is the future direction of the country. Great campaign…on point…issues only.

    Deeds & Corzine screwed around with the “Bush & Rovian” nonsense and worse. Totally failed on issues. Should have distanced themselves from Obama the Marxist.
    Obama is failing KLOWNS.

    Thursday, November 05, 2009

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 30% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -9 (see trends). Thirty-four percent (34%) say the U.S. is generally heading in the right direction.

    If health care passes, 72% say it’s likely companies would drop insurance coverage for employees. Most also think that being pushed onto the government option would be bad for workers.
