I’ve said it before but… man, is Tim Eyman a whiner. In an email to supporters on Friday, the crybaby asked:
Why is the legal complaint against the King County Council for tampering with council-shrinking I-18 being kept a secret by the Seattle PI news department?
Um… could the answer be Tim, that the world doesn’t revolve around you?
Timmy’s political solipsism is understandable considering the media circus that has surrounded his every fart over the past six years, but he better get use to working a little harder for his free press. If not for the last-minute financial and PR windfall bestowed on him by Canadian and Nevadan gambling conglomerates, Tim would be teetering on the edge of irrelevance after two straight years of failing to qualify for the ballot.
Tim’s grown accustomed to throwing a hissyfit and seeing it broadcast on the evening news, but as his failures mount his coverage will inevitably decline. It may be hard for Tim to understand, but not everything he does is newsworthy.
In fact, very little of what he does is all that newsworthy… it’s how he does it that usually generates the press.
Anybody can file a lawsuit, Tim. And apparently the P-I’s editors felt that anybody did.
