Regime change at King County Dems

As Andrew Villeneuve reports over at NPI, the King County Democrats held their biannual reorganization meeting this weekend, at which Steve Zemke was elected the new party Chair, and Andrew himself was elected 2nd Vice Chair. Congrats to both of them, along with Chad Lupkes and the rest of the officers.

Steve and Andrew were two of the first Democratic activists I met after filing my horse’s ass initiative, the three of us loosely joined in our efforts to counter Tim Eyman on a 24/7, year-round basis, and so it’s been particularly interesting to watch them ascend the party ranks. There’s nothing particularly glamorous about the jobs they just signed up for, but knowing their passion and energy, I expect good things.

    From what you’ve written Zemke sounds like a good choice. I like behind the scenes nuts and bolts kinda folks.

    Wow – props to Andrew. If only all people his age were like him.

    That’d knock the teahadists and the right wing greedheads on their collective rear-ends.

    Young people would help the world greatly if they got into the habit of voting. Just participate. Life long habits start early. So form them.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Perhaps Steve Zemke could explain why Republican votes are needed to fix the huge mess Democrats created by overspending in the face of a recession??
    This article also explains the Olympia KLOWNS misstated the actually Budget Shortfall for the next Budget. Sheesh.

    The Democrats are in charge and have been.
    Blame Bush Steve…that will make you popular at HA.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    Also, how does Steve feel about ImamObaMao caving in on the tax cuts?
    Is he going to be critical of Obama..or just thoughtful??
    Gnashing of Teeth.
    Wringing of Hands.
    It’s sooooo much fun to watch Goldy’s NW Division of Lunatic Moonbats face reality.

    Obamacare strikes again.

    In the new health care law, drug companies have begun notifying children’s hospitals around the country that they no longer qualify for large discounts on drugs used to treat rare medical conditions.
    As a result, prices are going up for these specialized “orphan drugs,” some of which are also used to treat more common conditions.
    Over the last 18 years, Congress has required drug manufacturers to provide discounts to a variety of health care providers, including community health centers, AIDS clinics and hospitals that care for large numbers of low-income people.
    Several years ago, Congress broadened the program to include children’s hospitals. But this year Congress, in revising the drug discount program as part of the new health care law, blocked these hospitals from continuing to receive price cuts on orphan drugs intended for treatment of diseases affecting fewer than 200,000 people in the United States.”

    Congratulations, you HorsesassHoles!
