If McGavick holds a press conference, and nobody is there to hear him speak, did he make an ass out of himself?

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.

    Special Report
    Hypocrisy, Democrat Style
    By Ben Stein
    Published 10/2/2006 1:12:08 AM
    If there were an Academy Award for Hypocrisy, the surefire favorite for 2006 would be the Democratic Party. Just two recent items make the decision a virtual certainty:

    The Representative Foley “scandal” is really worthy of a whole book on hypocrisy. On the one hand, we have a poor misguided Republican man who had a romantic thing for young boys. He sent them suggestive e-mail. I agree, that’s not great. On the other hand, we have a Democratic party that worships ( not likes, WORSHIPS ) a man named Bill Clinton who did not send suggestive e-mails as far as we know, but who had a barely legal intern give him oral sex kneeling under his desk in the Oval Office while he talked on the phone to a Congressional Committee Chairman, took great pleasure in putting a cigar in her orifice and then smelling it and tasting it, and having her fellate him when in the sacred seat of power of the world’s leading Republic. And the Democrats cheer themselves hoarse for him. His wife has a great shot at being our next President.

    We have a Republican man in Congress who sent e-mails to teenage boys asking them what they were wearing, and an entire party, the Democrats, whose primary constituency, besides the teachers’ unions, is homosexual men and lesbian women. I hope it won’t come as a surprise to anyone that a big part of male homosexual behavior is interest in young boys. (Take a look at anyone renting Endless Summer next time you are at the video store.)

    Don’t get me wrong. My very best friend is gay. I have many gay friends and they are great people. But how the Democrats, the party of gays, can be coming down this hard on a MC who’s gay is simply beyond belief. One of my top, favorite congressmen, Barney Frank, is openly gay. Might he say a word in defense of his fellow gay MC right about now? Hmm, I thought not.

    Second, let’s look at George Allen. Now, he’s a bad guy because he has a Confederate flag. Let’s get it straight. To millions of our fellow citizens, this flag has zero to do with racism. It is entirely about respect for a time of unbelievable horror in our society, The Civil War, and respect for men who fought so brilliantly for a cause that was unquestionably — by decent standards — a bad cause. Moreover, the stars and bars are a beautiful design and show nothing whatsoever about a person’s views about non-whites. No one has suggested that George Allen did anything racist or anti-black in his work in the Senate or as Governor. For him to be judged by what historical relics he owns is pure thought crime.

    But the hypocrisy comes in because the Democrats have as their dean in the Senate an actual former Klansman, Robert Byrd of West Virginia. In my very clear memory, the whole bulk of the senior Democrats routinely called blacks “nigras” and voted against any kind of civil rights laws, right down to anti-lynching laws. And this is the party that presumes to judge a man because he owns a Civil War artifact memorializing incredible American courage? Didn’t we just recently have as President a Democrat from Georgia who was inches away from being a segregationist in his early career? And what did his state flag look like when he was governor? And George Allen is being judged by these people?

    Again, for sheer hypocrisy, the winner is: the Democratic Party. Again.

    Private-Sector Anger Builds as Public Pension Costs Rise
    Lawmakers feel the heat from taxpayers who see their own benefits wither, and traditional payouts give way to 401(k)-style plans.
    By Molly Hennessy-Fiske, Times Staff Writer
    October 2, 2006

    HADDONFIELD, N.J.—For insurance agent Steve Adams, 51, the resentment began two years ago.

    As he worried whether his stagnant 401(k) account would be adequate for retirement, his wife’s employer ended her pension plan, forcing her to rely on a 401(k) as well. Then New Jersey lawmakers raised his property taxes to maintain state workers’ pensions.

    Last spring Adams joined a taxpayer group called Americans for Prosperity that is seeking limits on government employee pensions.

    In June he attended a rally in Seaside Heights, N.J., where about 200 people urged state legislators to make cuts in such things as pensions rather than raise taxes again — this time, a proposal to raise the state sales tax.

    “We don’t get anything nearly as generous in the private sector” as public pensions, Adams said.

    Public employee pensions, one of the last bastions of guaranteed retirement plans in America, are under assault as cash-strapped state and local governments struggle to cover rising costs and as resentful taxpayers refuse to pay more to cover them.

    The development has led to “pension envy” among people like Adams, as baby boomers struggling to make it to retirement see state workers retire early to reap rewards they may never enjoy. The tension has crept into relationships between friends, neighbors, parents and teachers.

    The struggle to fund public employee pension plans is a familiar topic in California, where last year Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger unsuccessfully sought to replace state workers’ pensions with 401(k)s.

    The California Public Employee Retirement System and California State Teachers Retirement System cover more than 2 million workers. CalPERS is 88% funded and CalSTRS 82% funded, according to their financial records — levels that researchers at the conservative Pacific Research Institute say are high compared with states such as Illinois and New Jersey.

    Alaska and Colorado have made changes to state pensions, and Illinois, Oklahoma, Montana, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Providence, R.I., are contemplating similar steps.

    About 90% of state and local workers in the U.S. have pensions, compared with about 20% of private-sector workers, said Keith Brainard, research director at the National Assn. of State Retirement Administrators.

    Instead of company-paid pensions with guaranteed payments, most private-sector workers now are offered 401(k) plans, investment accounts that employees pay into and manage while they’re working, then tap when they retire. Some employers contribute to 401(k) plans.

    With state pensions, investment management is up to the state, but taxpayers are often called on to cover costs. As of last year, 84% of state pension plans were underfunded, meaning their assets don’t cover projected payments, according to Santa Monica-based Wilshire Associates. Some lawmakers plan to make up the difference by raising taxes.

    The tension between public employees and taxpayers is playing out across the country, but nowhere more sharply than in New Jersey.

    Several of New Jersey’s major private employers recently eliminated pensions. Telecom giants Sprint Nextel Corp. and Verizon Communications partially froze pensions last year, affecting some 18,000 workers in New Jersey. DuPont Co., which employs about 1,300 in New Jersey, announced plans this summer to freeze pensions, meaning the company intends to drastically reduce its pension fund for current employees and deny any coverage to new hires.

    “More and more New Jerseyans find themselves without pensions and become resentful of the double whammy that they face: fewer benefits for themselves and higher taxes so that the public-sector workers can receive generous benefits,” said David Rebovich, managing director of the Institute for New Jersey Politics at Rider University in Lawrenceville.

    Nancy Burwell, 52, of Morristown, N.J., is one of them. She’s been attending and organizing meetings of Americans for Prosperity — seven were scheduled in September across the state, seven this month — where organizers explain the public pension system and how it contributes to local tax increases.

    Burwell, who works in sales, said she and her husband, a computer programmer, were saving for retirement without a pension or 401(k) because their jobs didn’t offer them.

    “We don’t expect anybody else to help us out; we take care of it ourselves,” Burwell said. “I really resent these public workers. Why should I pay for their retirement?”

    State Assemblyman Paul D. Moriarty is pushing pension changes. “In New Jersey, life is still about keeping up with Mr. and Mrs. Jones. And the Joneses have state pensions and health care coverage,” the Democrat said.

    “Can you name one bill passed in the House, and Senate, that Bush signed, that really helped “Regular Americans” and hurt large corporations, and the super rich?”

    klake spews:

    Goldy and Gang is there any truth about this statement? What say you?
    I think that the Democrat Party is more in line with the Fascist Movement in the 1930’s.
    The Democrat Party is direct revolts with the Republican Party today who are conservative in many ways

    Fascist movements usually try to retain some supposedly healthy parts of the nation’s existing political and social life, but they place more emphasis on creating a new society. In this way fascism is directly opposed to conservatism—the idea that it is best to avoid dramatic social and political change. Instead, fascist movements set out to create a new type of total culture in which values, politics, art, social norms, and economic activity are all part of a single organic national community. In Nazi Germany, for example, the fascist government in the 1930s tried to create a new Volksgemeinschaft (people’s community) built around a concept of racial purity. A popular culture of Nazi books, movies, and artwork that celebrated the ideal of the so-called new man and new woman supported this effort. With this idealized people’s community in mind, the government created new institutions and policies (partly as propaganda) to build popular support. But the changes were also an attempt to transform German society in order to overcome perceived sources of national weakness. In the same way, in Italy under Mussolini the government built new stadiums and held large sporting events, sponsored filmmakers, and financed the construction of huge buildings as monuments to fascist ideas. Many scholars therefore conclude that fascist movements in Germany and Italy were more than just reactionary political movements. These scholars argue that these fascist movements also represented attempts to create revolutionary new modern states.

    McGavick is running a love style campaign – just like Rossi and Bush did. Smile and say why can’t we all just get along together. Of course, that includes denouncing anyone who doesn’t agree with you as the problem.

    The real problem is that the Republicans idea of together is to sing along with them and support the interests of the wealhty and the corporations they represent and that give them campaign donations.

    Current elected Republicans like Reichert and McMosrris and Hastings aren’t interested in preserving the sale tax deduction for Washington citizens on their Federal income tax. They aren’t interested in increasing health care benefits for the poor, or raising the minimum wage or lowering prescription drug costs.

    If they were we would have seen this legislation pass because the Republicans are the majority party in the House and Senate. Adding more Republicans is not going to increase the chance of this legislation passing – it will get even more unlikely.

    McGavick is in a bind because he can’t say he’ll go back to DC and be another Republican. Bickering isn’t the problem – Republican control of Congress is the problem.

The best thing about this Congress is that by doing little at least it did little harm.

    Bonus question for you: What’s the term used if the missle doesn’t leave the rail successfully and what is the next immediate procedure for a “hot” weapon stuck on the rail.

    C’mon, JCH, this is basic “Surface Warfare Officer” stuff. Anyone who stood OOD Officer Of the Deck watch MUST know this information to be qualified to stand OOD watch.

    Tick, Tock Pedophile. How long will it take you to surf the web for this answer, since you don’t know from your own military experience.

    GO! Times a wastin’!!

    It’s been 2 1/2 hours and youi still haven’t found out what to do with a “hot” missle stuck on the rails yet?!?!

    What’s up, “LT”?

    Why doncha call your “XO” buddy?

    Maybe your imaginery “XO” friend can help you!

    C’mon JCH, what’s it called when a missle won’t launch and what is the immediate procedure that every Officer Of the Deck MUST know to be OOD qualified?

    What if you were standing watch and a missle failed to launch, what would you do to save your crew and ship?!?!?

    Besides wetting your pants, that is.
