Mark your calendars: Drinking Liberally with Ron Sims

If you like beer, and you like Ron Sims, Oct. 4th will be your opportunity to get your fill of both, as the King County Executive joins us at our regular Tuesday night gathering of the Seattle chapter of Drinking Liberally, 8PM at the Montlake Ale House, 2307 24th Avenue E.

So mark your calendars now, and come join us for a few good beers and a lot of great conversation.

    Neal Deal spews:

    Ron Sims is the greatest politician to ever fill the office of King County Executive in the long history of this great County (King). His speechs are awe-inspiring and positive. He gets the crowd pumped up and I think he will make King County and great place to live and work in. My hat’s off to Ron Sims and all the work he has done!

  2. 7

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    When Ron starts drinkin’ and sweatin’ and runnin’ off at mouf, it will be downright pitiful. The place will smell like Chicken Noodle Soup and sound like a wounded jackass is on the loose!
    Watch Goldy get all starry-eyed bein’ aroud a bigger clebrity than Goldy. We might see a little clash of egoes!!! If Goldy climbs into that Limo with Don Ron Sims King….you will know all my speculation about, you know,….which side of the plate Goldy swings from… will be answered.
    Actually LEFTIST PINHEADS probably need alcohol to numb themselves to their own bullshit.
    I hope Goldy asks Sims how he is going to address the Logan factor….or is Ron’s little BUTTBOY going to be wit Big Daddy?

  3. 8

    Mark The Redneck spews:

    Be sure to ask Ron Sims if his brother who “lives” in King County will vote for him in November.

    Cyn @ 7 ….Yeah you sound just like your Republican brother Bill Bennett … you racist bastard!

  5. 14

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Jimmy and fire_one—
    Ummmm….I have shown up once before with a couple of my buddies (one was Black….great dresser…Conservative).
    LEFTIST PINHEADS need their together time.
    Why would I even bother with such a hopeless lot as y’all.

  6. 15

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    By the way….I didn’t see any Black LEFTIST PINHEADS.
    That was very telling.
    Y’all love to talk about diversity and Jesse Jackson’s Rainbow….but you have no black members of your Drinking least that night I was there.

  7. 16

    jsa on beacon hill spews:

    You show up here every day Cyn, rain or shine, so you DO bother with a hopeless lot as us’all.

    It’s OK if you have a crush on us. It’s natural for boys your age to act out this way. You’ll get some social graces in a few years and grow out of it.

  8. 17

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    I just enjoy the bantering and the humor…all 2 of you LEFTIST PINHEADS that actually have a real sense of humor!
    Most of you LEFTIST PINHEADED CLOWNS take this all way, way too seriously. I’m sure you are negatively impacted your REM sleep and creating a gross amount of excess stomach acid.
    Does having fun with this make someone a Troll????
    Taking it too seriously makes someone a nincompoop!

    fire_one spews:

    Cyn @ 17 … Oh I see, just like Bill Bennett “I was just joking…” BS. Racist.

    Swift Boat Vets For Universal Healthcare spews:

    Ron Sims! Woo Hoo! To tell you the truth, I hail from the Brian Derdowski wing of the Democratic party (not the Ron Sims wing) so I promise to ask him some good questions. I’ll ask him about the CAO, the Gov race, his ’94 Senate race, and the last time he’s talked to Chris Gregoire.

  12. 21

    HowCanYouBePROUDtobeAnASS spews:

    …and the last time he’s talked to Chris Gregoire. -Comment by Swift Boat Vets For Universal Healthcare— 9/30/05 @ 7:42 pm

    LOL – that’s funny!

  13. 22

    jsa on beacon hill spews:

    Cynical @ 17,

    Impacted by people on a blog? Loss of sleep or excess stomach acid? Definitely not me. If I want to get ticked off at someone and lose sleep, I have family members for that.

    The fact that the world is full of greedy, self-serving people is not a great source of concern to me. Human nature dictates it, and only foolish idealism would tell you it doesn’t exist. Like vanity, sloth, or lust, it’s part of the world we live in. Just don’t celebrate it or wallow in it too much.

    I’ll try to be there. But there’s no telling which persona I’ll assume– if any!

    Hmm…Praying Mantis…Black Widow…

    Or perhaps the simple embodiment of “Crack Whore”…

  15. 24

    marks spews:

    And to be clear, “Crack Whore” is such an honorable mention…

    And it is gender neutral.

  16. 25

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    You know….I used to focus on the greed and other worldly sins and pulls we all must battle everyday. As humans, we are all mighty frail….no matter what kind of macho image we try to project. And we are all going to fall short of certain ideals….doesn’t mean we shouldn’t try to do better though.
    But I’ve also found that being positive with family and friends and looking at all the goodness in people is uplifting. People are capable of great things…..when not oppressed or bound by government or themselves.

    Jimmy spews:

    Just show up with something more to say than typical GOP talking points and someone might listen to you. Otherwise you are sunk.

  19. 29

    Jon spews:

    Since you’re seeing Ron Sims, and you quoted Joel Connelly’s column today, why don’t you combine both and get an answer to Connelly’s question for Sims:

    “Pondering a challenge to Gov. Gary Locke early in 2003, Ron Sims sounded themes of a “new” Democrat. Sims boasted of how he had created a leaner, focused King County government in contrast to the state bureaucracy.

    Sims sounded very different notes in his 2004 gubernatorial campaign, however, championing a graduated state income tax. He has lately proposed a $22.8 million King County elections headquarters building, and angled to take over the top two floors of a proposed $100 million county building.

    Which Sims will take office if we re-elect the King County executive, the bureaucracy tamer of 2003 or the bureaucracy builder of 2005?

    Maybe not as sexy as your Rossi vigil, but it’s a question worth an answer nonetheless.

  20. 30

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Pithy question!!!
    Goldy won’t EVER confront his BUTTBUDDY Don ROn Sims King!

    You righties are just jealous ’cause we’re winning. And if you win , you got to put on a suit and tie and sit around listening to a bunch of fuckin’ Republicans.

    What a sorry existence. And the worst thing is , YOU KNOW BETTER!!!!!!!!!!!!

  23. 33

    HowCanYouBePROUDtobeAnASS spews:

    Winning what exactly, ballsless? A few little primaries in a 3rd rate state?

    How did President Gore do, again?
    How did President Kerry do, again?
    How did Senator Daschle do, again?
    Which LIBERAL party lost 4 seats in the US Senate?
    Which LIBERAL party lost 5 seats in the US House of Representatives?

    What judge was just confirmed Chief Justice?

    Even your precious Newsweek admits the libs are “demoralized” losers without a plan.

  24. 34

    HowCanYouBePROUDtobeAnASS spews:

    And by the way, please tell your fellow nutburgers KERRY LOST. It’s time to take those sad little bumper stickers off the fender… has anyone ever REALLY noticed the type of car/driver that STILL has those? YIKES!

  25. 35

    JL spews:

    in response to 33.
    winning the moral battle right now (frist, delay, o’reilly, rove, plamegate, iraq, pfc. england, halliburton stock price… can i go to the potty now?)

    we don’t have to brag about our lost battles. ie gore and kerry. their records stand for themselves. neither of these men that you deride, true warriors and statesmen, not like bush and his pack of cronies (chertoff, brown, male-hooker/reporter jeff gannon) is done in the biz, my friend. we may have lost some battles, but my personal theory is that as you drive this country into a hell of the conservatives making, it will cause the rest of us to rise up and eat you and shit you out. things are getting so bad that us decent folks are going to rise up an divorce America from the chains of the particular religion, crony-based, conservative nation of assmunches that bush is turning us into.

    that is all. carry on your inane arguments.

    mr. laughing

  26. 36

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Remember, for these LEFTIST PINHEADS it hurts their fragile psyche’s and self-esteem when you point out that they actually LOST. In their world, when they lose…it’s all about how pure and civil their efforts were. Guys like Michael “Moses” Moore, Jesse “Jesus” Jackson et al. All men of honor and civility! BLAH!!!!!
    When fools like JL try to take a moral high ground, just mention Rostenkowski, Mel Reynolds, Ted “Swimmer” Kennedy, Barney Fag etc. etc. etc.

  27. 39


    There is nothing behind the Diebold voting machines. It just a way for the donks to lessen the blow of losing the election. We have numerous studies which point to the democrats being the guilty party of voter fraud. The KC debacle is just a small example of how democrats cheat in elections. Republican voter fraud is practically nonexistent compared to what the democrats do.

    A HREF=””>The Backseat Philosopher
    Thursday, November 04, 2004
    To My Fellow Democrats

    “We Democrats are supposedly the party of the therapists, the teachers, and the ‘relationship experts.’ If anybody would be proud of the title, ‘active listener’, it would be a Democrat. We’re the soft ones who understand where the other side is coming from and negotiate.

    Many Democrats think that our patience and understanding are our weakness. “We don’t know how to fight like the Republicans,” we all told ourselves after Florida 2000. “We have to be more like them: tougher, meaner.” “We have to energize our base more.”

    Actually, no. Our error is that we Democrats are far less understanding than we think we are. Our version of understanding the other side is to look at them from a psychological point of view while being completely unwilling to take their arguments seriously. “Well, he can’t help himself, he’s a right-wing religious zealot, so of course he’s going to think like that.” “Republicans who never served in war are hypocrites to send young men to die. ” “Republicans are homophobes, probably because they can’t deal with their secret desires.” Anything but actually listening and responding to the arguments being made.

    And when I say ‘responding,’ I don’t just mean ‘coming up with the best counterargument and pushing it.’ Sometimes responding to an argument means finding the merit in it and possibly hanging one’s position. That is part of growth, right?

    Here are some arguments that are being made that the Democratic party has simply not responded to, in the larger sense of the word “response”:

    *Whatever the UN was, might have been, or should be, it now isn’t. Genocidal tyrannies are on the Human Rights commision. Saddam Hussein funneled over 1.7 billion dollars to various decision makers and world leaders to weaken his sanctions program. One out of every three votes is about Israel. Until the UN is significantly reformed, you shouldn’t take its decisions seriously.

    *If we view 1000 or even 10,000 dead soldiers as unacceptable, we will never be able to fight a real war again.

    *Proportional response with no preemption allows the other side to set the pace of the battle.

    *Throughout history, governments have had a strong interest in promoting long-term child-rearing heterosexual relationships. That is why governments create a legal definition of Marriage and provide lots of benefits to heterosexual couples who enter into it. This has been true for States throughout history independent of the religious beliefs of the populace. Worrying about changing that definition, even to the point of deciding against a change, is not automatically sexism or bigotry.

    *If you never are willing to draw a line where human life starts, there will be no line.

    *Just because it says something in the Bible doesn’t mean there are no ancillary arguments supporting it. And just because someone uses the Bible as a source of their morality doesn’t mean that any particular view of theirs is wrong. Actually, stuff that’s lasted for thousands of years is more likely to be useful than stuff that was dreamed up in a French philosophy book.

    I am not saying that all these arguments should win. But I do not hear enough Democrats elucidating reasoned counterarguments to these positions. “Bush insulted our allies and the UN,” “Bush lied, people died,” “We have become the aggressor,” “Homophobia,” “Religious nut.” These are not responses, these are dismissals. When Democrats start actively responding, we will succeed. Until then, we will be increasingly ignored as irrelevent.

    That’s no fucking Democrat.

    And who the fuck are you trying to define “Democrat” anyway, yourroyalfuckingassness?

    Live in the trenches for a little while…see who this Party REALLY is and who we REALLY represent. Better still…DON”T.

    Stay right where you are. We need you for a BAD EXAMPLE.

  30. 45


    Day TWO of poor ol” Rujax’ pathetic vigil to get herroyalfuckingassness to answer two simple questions:

    1) Just where was my Congressman, the Honorable Jim McDermott wrong about Iraq?

    2) What part of the new (and muy fabuloso) HA Superstar Rocco Capetto’s bumper sticker “WE GOT TO BAGHDAD FASTER THAN NEW ORLEANS” is incorrect.

    Huh???? Huh?????

    Ol’ Rujax…is hangin’ in there waiting for the wizened up, barren old crone to pop forth with her “pearls” (or is it turds) of wisdom.

    I got a feelin’ I’ll be waiting…like Goldy…or, like Estragon…or Vladimir!

    Hoow perfectly predictable.

    Game, set, match, rugrat.

    Thanks so much for proving the point so aptly.

    Stay right where you are. We need you for a PERFECT EXAMPLE… of WHY you have become the party of irrelevancy.

  32. 49

    HowCanYouBePROUDtobeAnASS spews:

    You’re right rugrat – I haven’t listened to a word that corrupt commie, McDimwit, has said since 1987. I just thank God, we were astute enough to invest in our home far, far away from his screwy district.

    As far as the bumper sticker…while it may tickle your partisanship, it’s a complete non-sequitor. The woman/man/fish thing comes to mind. There’s a difference between international and national response. They aren’t even handled by the same groups. There’s a difference between an ACTION and a REACTION. We handled Baghdad faster because the right man was handling it. New Orleans wasn’t handled well because there were a bunch of boobs running the state and city. Bush does his job. He shouldn’t be expected to do Lousiana’s job too.

    Axl-Rod spews:


    The Bush-dolt and his ‘Pube masters worked SO HARD to steal all three branches of govt. – and they really didn’t get much done !!

    Country bankrupt = no more tax cuts.

    Bush weaker & dumber every day = ‘Pube agenda derailed.

    Discount Army led by airheads = crisis in enlistment.

    Starved FEMA = two swift, brutal kicks below the bible belt.

    Arrogance & ignorance = no international deals or friends.

    Feeble, incompetent cabinet = approval rating dropping daily.

    fleischer, rove, delay, ashcrack, powell, etc. = bye bye.

    Rabid desire to destroy democracy = govt. size grows by 1 million people.

    Saudi Prince cock in Bush’s mouth = SUV clowns crying as their precious tax cut is pumped into their silly gas-tanks.

    Fatty foods & mental retardation = no gains on the Supreme Court.

    Thinly disguised bigots = no progress with Black voters.

    so many failures, so many conservative buffoons & god-lickers …

    I’m totally delighted, totally !! Can’t believe it – but they actually succeeded in inserting their own heads into their own rectums. Other than the smell – I really don’t see much damage !

    If this is the best they can do when in total control — we don’t have much to worry about.

    9/11 handed them a golden goose – and they killed it !!! hahahaha wow

    I always knew their dopeyness would defeat them eventually – but I had no idea how quickly and completely they’d crash.

    Normal people always have to remember that the ‘conservative’ disease is self-defeating. They can’t help but fail.

    When we return to power (sooner rather than later, apparently) we won’t have much trouble sending them to the back of the bus for another 50 years, just like last time.

    God is definitely a Democrat !! No doubt about that. We always win.

    Look at the last three oafs the ‘Pubes have given us: a Gimp, a Wimp, and a Simp.

    Now we have three more years to watch them roast like swine on a spit, and we don’t have to take responsibility for anything that happens. We can piss on their heads any time we want. Can his ratings actually go negative? Will he start drinking again?
    I don’t know – but it’s all good.

    Well, Axl, you are quite the ‘johnny one note’… I’ve counted this EXACT post 3X now.

    Axl-Rod spews:

    The last 6 people returning from Iraq (that I’ve talked to) have said the same thing – they don’t think we’re making progress, they don’t know why we’re there, they don’t think the Iraqis are capable of democracy, they feel abandoned by the Bush administration, they feel underfunded and underequipped and 4 of them are leaving the Service, one after 17 years, another after 10. They feel in danger all the time with no way to fight back. One guy had movies on his computer and showed me how terribly exposed they are. The equipment is constantly jamming from the sand. They have a million stories about the incompetence of their commanders. Their biggest fear is being crippled and winding up in some VA hell-hole.

    None of them said anything about Dodge Rams or C&W music. Nobody blamed “the Left” for the failures of this mission. Does anyone bother to ask them, or is it just me?

    This is patriotism to you?

    I’m pretty sure they’d just LOVE to use Mr. Cynical for target practice.

    Ding Ding: Email from PacMan

    “To fire_one and jsa of beacon hill: Both of you are not representing me as a black man on this blog. I see fire_one has implemented the time honored leftist MSM method of quote yanking. In the Bible we call that proof texting. You know take a text out of context and use it as a battering ram to try and make your point. Sorry that doesn’t cut it. I heard all of Dr. Bennett’s commentary and some of his interviews afterward. I know you didn’t fire_one from the comments you made above. As I stated earlier, his wording was clumsy and awkward and at first blush I was upset. But then he stated statistics. I searched the Internet. I found many sad stats about my people.

    Why hasn’t Jesse or Al or Harold Ford Jr addressed this? Where is the mouth of LA Maxine Waters or Houston’s mouth Sheila Jackson Lee. I even emailed that woman and received no email answer. Where is John Lewis? Puddy you be in Atlanta, find the Negro! I know why these black “leaders” are AWOL on OOW birth!!! No money in it for them.

    BTW lucy, what will you show up as? A Hemmorrhoid? You are the biggest pain in the ass here. Will you show up as a used tampon? Attack Cynical and that’s what you’ll leave as. Will you show up as a LEFTIST PINHEAD? Well not much I can do to cure you of that.

    JSA – I liked you. You made more sense than 5 Professor DJs combined. Sad that you are being polluted by the animal hind parts blog.

    Speaking of making sense, where are David and GBS? I would like to see David address Puddy’s call for renouncing LEFTIST PINHEAD hatred of Israel. I guess I’ll die before that happens. I wonder what his Israeli Supreme Court Justice would think. Puddy, you are good at this; perform an Internet search on Israeli Supreme Court justices. Send them some of that Dan B 9/16/05 or headless lucy commentary. Send your questions to the ISC. I am sure they would like to see how a lefty Jew like David, supposedly proud of his heritage, proud of the three stars on Sabbath, condones Israel hatred through silence. David, may I suggest What did the great Roosevelt do? “Observer Nations: Roosevelt promised that after the war all the Perpetrators will be punished. This was the depth of his involvement. Even the few Jews that escaped from hell, were denied entry to USA, because of the quota system.” You mean Jews had quotas. I thought that was for us black peoples. At least FBI JE Hoover was against the Japanese Internment camps!!!

    I suppose GBS wants me to answer him some more on southern hatred. I will GBS in due time. Right now the time is not right and I am not due!”

    Cynical – I have your back if lucy tries to attack you. It will be my pleasure to take that filthy piece of shit out-of-here. I will never forget what he called me and said about me.
