    OTOH, Joni still follows the Blethen party line:

    Hutchison will surely make it through the primary, even though there are two more-experienced and qualified people for executive, Jarrett and state Rep. Ross Hunter.

    There are, of course, at least four (vastly) more-experienced and qualified people. And maybe five if you add in Alan Lobdell (I’ll grant her a slight edge over Goodspaceguy, and Lippmann’s from a different reality-space).

    PS. I’m currently sitting right behind Goldy at NN09.

    Anybody know where Hutchison stands on Sound Transit and light rail? Last fall’s ballot measure, did she support it or oppose it?

    It’s not “opinion” that Hutch has been issuing statements instead of giving interviews.

    Nor is it opinion that she has been approached multiple times by the Republican party to run for office.

    Not is it opinion that she has no experience in either politics or in government. It shows, by the way.

    She’s this year’s Mike! McGavick, and will suffer his fate.

    Al Capp drew a ’60’s character/caricature called Joni Phony. Think I’m starting to connect the dots.

    Where’s Mike the Mover when we need him?

    She has no name recognition with me. All I know is that she’s keeping deliberately blank, she’s a former teleprompter reader and she has Republican hair.

    I find it rather interesting that in both the city and county races that are supposed to be “nonpartisan”, many of the candidates who happen to be Democrats are proudly proclaiming so in their public statements and campaign literature, while those like Hutchison who presumably would be running as Republicans in a partisan race (based on their past affiliations and activities) are staying officially…”nonpartisan”.

    They couldn’t possibly be thinking that they couldn’t get win if they proudly proclaimed their Republican-ness…..could they?

    @7 Good question. Maybe another casualty of the Bush Depression? But you’d think there’d be plenty of moving business with all these foreclosures and evictions going on.

    You mean hair on her head…instead of hairballs under her armpits and gorilla leghair…like the grotesque KLOWN women??

    “the grotesque KLOWN women??”

    Oh, you mean like Jessica Alba? And I suppose you would prefer the she-male Coulter?

    Sounds like obama with his “present” votes and his need for a teleprompter.

    @12 Got news for ya Klownykal, all the Repub women are fucking Democrats because they’re tired of Republican pencil dicks.

    TV @ 2: just find out what the local right wing think tanks think…and you will know Hutchison’s position. The clueless R’s (Rossi was another good example) could care less about public policy, and import their opinions from paid liars.

    Naturally, Hutchison has embraced the Discovery Institute / John Stanton “Transportation Governance Reform” effort. As in, take the transit money and spend it on roads….

    Hey Goldy!

    What hotel in Pittsburgh are you crashin’ at? I’m at the Sheraton Station Square across the river…

    Here’s the offer…Dinner on me Saturday night. C’mon man, man up and break bread with me for good times.

    I’ll be here until Sunday morning.

    Free food always has attracted you in the past…

    Funny how so many people seem to have missed the presidential debates where Obama eviscerated McCain without a teleprompter. They just believe what they fervently wish to believe, and reality be damned. It’s one reason why Republicans are anti-science. Science does not leave a lot of room for believing lots of “counter to reality” stuff.

    Can any who claimed Darcy Burner did not have sufficient experience explain how they can support Hutchison?

    Not for anything, but an executive position managing a government the size of King County requires considerably more than being one of several hundred legislators.

    I had NO intention of voting for Hutchinson in any way, I have an aversion to people running simply on their ‘face & name recognition’.

    However, I think the Times insisting & receiving the documents of her lawsuit, that were improperly sealed, and publishing them this week did some serious damage.

    She wasn’t like some little smuck peon (as many people clutching their job, if they still have one), even for older women Susan lost sympathy. When she asked for July 4th day off, then called in sick when refused, and photographed river running. Later, the rumor planting and all the other goofy moves – just made her look ‘erratic’ to put it nicely. Hardly someone that could manage King County with many demands & stresses. Probably all the Repubs will show up to vote for her, but I’m not so sure about the Women voting.

    … explain how they can support Hutchison?

    Well, what sealed the deal for me is Suzie’s econ degree from Harvard.
