The Seattle Times David Postman gets invited to all the most exclusive events.
McGavick held a press conference this morning at his Seattle headquarters. It was attended by me and a camera operator from KIRO TV.
Man… you can just feel the buzz building up around the McGavick campaign, huh? A reporter and a cameraman.
Of course, reading Postman’s blog, Mike?™ was probably better off not getting too much coverage. According to McGavick:
“This will be a Congress that will be well-known for it’s failure to make progress and the rank partisanship that it displayed. I mean, we went from having a member of Congress sent to jail, a member of Congress found with bags of money frozen in the freezer, to a congressman now sending X-rated messages to pages, all in one congress.
“And I think the American people have to be saying to themselves, ‘What in the heck is going on back there?'”
And, um… McGavick thinks the American people’s answer to his question is going to be to send even more Republicans to Congress?
“What in the heck is going on back there?” The Republicans are unfit to lead, that’s what. And if McGavick wants to make that his new campaign theme, he should invite me to his press conferences — I’ll be more than glad to give him all the coverage he wants.
