    NPI has a couple of posts on Tim Eyman and 4204 worth a look:

    http://www.nwprogressive.org/weblog/

    Election results are disproving Tim Eyman’s claim that voters are “tapped out”

    KOMO removes Eyman’s “Another election stolen by King County?” comment from article

    Andrew seems to raise a case in point to what Will and Geov were talking about re: the nature of the Times’ interest in media ownership. So why is the AP (otherwise disparaged as part of the “liberal media”) so in love with Tim Eyman?

    If any one here is interested. Bush the lesser has just vetoed the National INst. of Health budget. Nothing like having funds for heath research determined by a creationist.

    Let all pray,

    “Holy Father, in our time of affliction with AIDS and Cancer and Heart Disease, would you please make the NIH budget spread further so fewer people would die. We ask this in the name of all religions, those that call you Jesus and those not yet so enelightened.”

    “Thy will be done!”

    I am considering a new initiative asking God to show her hand in erasing these plagues form the people of WA state. Even if it becomes ruled unconstitutional, I am sure God will understand the intent of the people.

    “Be it resolved, that the people and legislature of Washington State join together, with repect to all religions and to the belief there is no God, and that any God or gods that may be accept our wished that no more people of our State die of AIDs. We also join together and ask, if there Someone to hear, that it rain in Georgia.

    offered in the name of the people of Washington State.”

    To clarify ..

    any resemblance between the sock puppet posting as Tim Eyman and the real person, assuming he is a real person, while totally intentional is not meant to deceive.

    I am not, nor have I ever been, a watch salesman but I do like the idea of being the kept puppy of some rich person willing to fund my ideas for initiatives.

    BTW has anyone spent the 7.95 to look up my criminal record et al at Intellius? It is FREE today .. actually if you spend the $8 they will give you $10!

    Judith Regan is suing Fox, btw. This should be fun!

    Regan: I was asked to protect Giuliani

    By Los Angeles Times and The Associated Press

    Judith Regan was fired from her job at HarperCollins, which is owned by News Corp.

    NEW YORK — Former publisher Judith Regan filed a $100 million defamation lawsuit against Rupert Murdoch’s media conglomerate News Corp. and other defendants, alleging she was asked by company officials to lie to federal investigators to protect the presidential bid of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

    see michellemalkin.com for photos of radical leftist mom dropping her baby onto the street while using him as a human shield. Also notice the elementary-aged looking boys nearby with bandanas to hide themselves. Possibly her kids, as well.

    Timity Eynman? @ 7

    You can look things up for free on the Washington State Courts website. And it doesn’t look like he has a criminal record. Just an awful lot of Thurston County Superior Court cases to review the ballot titles for all his initiatives. And that lawsuit five years back where he got fined $50,000 by the PDC, which inspired Goldy to become a Horse’s Ass.

    What is great about Tim Eyeman is that he takes all the guess work out of voting. I don’t even know what is going to be on the next ballot but I do know I will be voting for a Tim Eyeman initiative. Thanks Tim roof roof.

    Many Americans would naturally assume Gore follows the green lifestyle he widely promotes, and they would be wrong. Gore and his wife Tipper, whose children all live elsewhere, reside in a behemoth 20-room mansion outside of Nashville that used nearly 23,000 kilowatt-hours last August, more than twice the annual-yes, annual-energy usage of a typical American home. Gore’s preferred mode of transportation between stops on his international publicity tour is his private jet, which spews out CO2 emissions at the rate of a small army of SUVs.

    These celebrities and politicians justify their unnecessary consumption by purchasing carbon credits, which many of the nouveau-conscious acquire in order to offset their excessive energy usage. Carbon credits were established by the Kyoto Protocol, which established limits on carbon emissions for most countries (incidentally the United States has still not signed this agreement even though it is the world’s largest emitter of greenhouse gases). Countries and companies who fall below their established limits are free to trade their credits in the global emissions market to other parties-including individuals-who have exceeded their emissions limits. When celebrities today buy these credits, they are allowing themselves to continue their disproportionate consumption while somewhere else in the world carbon emissions are reduced by other societies to make up for American excess.

    While these superficial efforts by stars to offset their consumption are admirable, they are not a lasting solution. The average American household would have to buy $276,000 a year in carbon credits to counteract their carbon emissions, a price tag few Americans would be able to afford. Moreover, even if every American household could afford carbon credits, the result would be that Third World countries would bear the burden of our excessive lifestyles. While carbon credits are a viable short-term option for industry and an important step toward reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the corporate sector, they are not practical for American families.

    This is 100% correct, just that I didn’t expect to read this in the Harvard college newspaper. Did you like carbon credit canard?

    Looks like Hilary’s mouthpiece Media Morons tried to lay down the smack down on Wolfie and Constipated Newsless Nuts.

    * Don’t contradict your own reporting and suggest that Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) “cash[ed] in” on a stock deal in which he lost $13,000.

    * Don’t say that Obama’s position on Pakistan is “very much in line with what” President Bush says regarding Pakistan.

    * Don’t contradict your own reporting — again — and say that Obama, in following legal requirements to count purchasers of his campaign merchandise as campaign contributors, is “apparently using some creative math” and “overselling his grassroots support.”

    * Don’t misleadingly crop quotes when challenging a candidate’s consistency on a particular issue, as NBC Washington bureau chief Tim Russert did on the November 11 broadcast of Meet the Press, when he suggested that Obama has “not been a leader against the [Iraq] war.”

    * Don’t tell Obama that “[i]t’s difficult to say that you’re against the war and at the same time not say that you’re against the troops.”

    * Don’t suggest that former Sen. John Edwards’ (D-NC) work “for financial markets” might “contradict his anti-poverty message.”

    * Don’t adopt GOP framing and ask Edwards about his “flip-flop” on Iraq “to win the vote.”

    * Don’t ask about former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s (R) “pretty interesting” quip that “[w]e’ve had a Congress that’s spent money like John Edwards at a beauty shop.”

    * Don’t compare the “liberal woman” Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) to French Socialist Party presidential candidate Ségolène Royal, or suggest that the election of “conservative male” Nicolas Sarkozy as president of France will in any way benefit former New York City Mayor Rudy Giualini’s (R) bid for the U.S. presidency.

    * Don’t misrepresent exchanges from past debates, as Russert did during the October 30 Democratic debate when he asked Clinton, regarding Social Security: “Why do you have one public position and one private position?”

    * Don’t ask whether Clinton — but not former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R) — is “going too far” and “politicizing 9-11″ in her campaign ads.

    * Don’t purport to cite written documentation while misrepresenting it, as Russert did during the October 30 debate, when he falsely claimed that a letter written in 2002 by President Clinton “specifically ask[ed] that any communication between” him and the first lady “not be made available to the public until 2012.”

    * Don’t base questions on premises that contradict available polling data, such as whether the Clinton campaign — while leading all other candidates in head-to-head matchups — is “feeling desperate.”

    * Don’t hold Democratic and Republican candidates to differing standards regarding the Iraq war and the budget — for example, by repeating Republican attacks on Obama and Clinton for voting against an Iraq supplemental funding bill without noting that Republican candidates have also voted against Iraq supplementals.

    * Don’t attribute the “weird” 1994 chart created by Sen. Arlen Specter’s (R-PA) office to then-first lady Clinton’s proposed health-care program.

    * Don’t fail to disclose that your husband is an adviser to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

    * Don’t promise “the kind of political insight and analysis that you simply can’t get anyplace else,” or “serious,” “specific,” and “precise” questions, then ask the candidates to respond to a series of questions by raising their hands.

    @8 I’d be interested if the photo showed someone dropping Michelle Malkin onto the street from a 3rd-floor balcony.*

    Tim Eyeman – just let me know where and when I can come and sign the petition for an initiative to restore the 60% threshhold. I will vote for every initiative you put before the voters. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for saving me several thousand dollars over the last several years!!! It was money well kept!!

    sorry, I have one of those new computers that is intelligently designed and it does create identities at times over which I should maintain more control.

    Tim Eyman has always seemed to me to be a fiction in amy case, a bit like Harvey, Santa, King Arthur, or the Tomta I once met in Sweden.

    (I will try to war5ch over my PC so that She does jnot allow too many of here creations to post w/o my approval.
