This is a sad commentary about either (1) the state of the Washington state political press machine, or (2) Larry Ishmael’s PR abilities. Maybe both.
You may remember that Ishmael ran against Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA-01) in 2006 and 2008. According to his video, he was busy working on a Ph.D. in Economics in 2010 (at the University of Stellenbosch, Western Cape, South Africa, according to his bio). He expects to finish his PhD in December, 2012.
But for now…Heeeeee’s Baaaaack!
The “breaking” news is that Larry Ishmael is running for congress again in the 1st CD!
The “not so breaking” part about it is that Ishmael announced his candidacy sometime in mid-December. His You Tube announcement is dated December 12th.
A Google news search in the past month on his name reveals:
No results found for “larry ishmael”.
No announcement in a blogosphere search either. Huh.
How did I find it? While working on my Friday Night video thingie, I stumbled across his trove of seven campaign videos released since his announcement.
Yo! Media…let’s pick up the pace a bit! Or maybe it’s…Yo! Larry…get some PR help!
Ishmael’s entry probably means there will be three Republicans in the race.
As an aside, when he ran in 2006, Goldy noticed that he was living in the 8th CD. That doesn’t violate the laws of man or nature or anything…it just a sign of political tone-deafness. So…it’s probably the latter. Sorry about giving you a hard time Media! Love ya! xxoo
