“The David Goldstein Show” tonight on Newsradio 710-KIRO

I love to talk policy, and that can get kinda wonky, but tonight on “The David Goldstein Show” I’ve got a couple of issues guaranteed to a raise few hackles… including a few of my own. So tune in to the fireworks from 7PM to 10PM on Newsradio 710-KIRO, and give me and my guests a call.

7PM: Is the WA State Legislature the proper place to debate presidential impeachment? State Sen. Eric Oemig (D-Kirkland) thinks so, and he joins me for the hour to talk about why he introduced SJM 8016, “Requesting an impeachment investigation into actions by President Bush and Vice President Cheney.” Is Sen. Oemig’s Joint Memorial a goofy waste of the Senate’s time, or a bold effort to hold the White House accountable?

8PM: Is it time to elect our Elections Director? It was my coverage of the contested 2004 gubernatorial election that first made HA a must-read blog — an election whose problems I believe were grossly exaggerated by Republicans and the mainstream media. Now with the much anticipated Gregoire-Rossi rematch coming into focus, former state Rep. Toby Nixon is rekindling the controversy by filing an initiative that would make the King County Elections Director and elected officer. Oy. I like Toby — for a Republican — which should make disagreeing with him all the more fun.

9PM: Did you watch the Oscars? I didn’t. (Because I was, um, on the air talking about politics and stuff.) So give me a call and fill me in on what happened.

Tune in tonight (or listen to the live stream) and give me a call: 1-877-710-KIRO (5476).

    Way to go Al! Jimmie’s Rooooooooting for ya! Run Al Run Jimmie will even be senden a special Box of Peanut Clustered Chocolates for your wasteline.

    #2 What is more sad? The Republicons total disregard for reality, or their need to lie to defend ALL their positions?

    And to think if the supreme court didn’t stop the recount, and Al Gore was the president since 2000, how much better off the world would be these days….. How many million / billion people wouldn’t hate America, and want to see us pay for our arrogance.

    Imagine, a president with a brain, and who can complete a whole sentence without stuttering, or babbling like an idiot.

    I have an idea for the GOP. Why don’t they dig up Reagan and run his corpse for president. With a little makeup it may work. It wouldn’t matter to the average Republicon voter the fact that he is dead. Anyone retarded enough to vote for a president just for the -R after their name belongs in a nuthouse anyway.

    A Republicon. Someone that will fight with every ounce of strength to keep their $20 tax “cut”, but when $10,000,000,000 (BILLION) go unaccounted for in Iraq, tons of $100 bills, that is just fine with them. The more money we waste in Iraq making people hate America the better!

    It is sad. When many of their fans want to attack people that tell them the truth, they may sell a few less cd’s to the Gomer Pyles.

    I’m not ready to make nice to Republicon traitors either. The ones that don’t belong in prison, belong in nuthouses. If all the Republicons left America and formed their own Fascist NAZI state, in Bush’s image, our country would be better off anyway. Since they hate our constitution so much, they probably don’t belong here anyway.

    As far as what they said in France, if you are not embarrassed by having a president as stupid as Bush, you definitely are not an American.

    Hell yes!

    Just saw this notice, sorry I missed the show.

    Errata: elected county auditor, not elections director. The auditor would then choose the people to run the elections. Just like every where else, finally bringing King County in line with the norm. I believe some of those high level positions would need to be approved by the council.

    I wish I had tuned in. I’d like to know what you disagree with. Just like the “100% vote by mail” boosters like to point out, having an elected auditor is a matter of when, not if. The council and the executive have already decided.

    Toby Nixon’s group just wants to move up the time line.

    Which is not a bad idea. As members of the CEOC have pointed out, considering the problems we’re having replacing the last auditor (nee director), having an election may be the only way the position gets filled.

    Gentry @8, I thought I did say on Goldy’s show last night that I don’t like universal Vote By Mail. I really liked the way the King Conservation District ran its recent election — you come in person, you show ID, they give you a paper ballot and a pen, you mark the ballot, and you put the ballot in a box. What a concept! My biggest concerns with VBM are that you don’t know that the person registered to vote is the one who marked the ballot, and you also don’t know that they had the opportunity to mark it in secret as guaranteed by our state constitution — and there’s no good way to fix either of those problems. People like the convenience of VBM, there’s no denying that, but it’s really an impending train wreck.

    I’m OK with optical-scan ballots, by the way, but we need mandatory random audits (manual counts) of a statistically-significant number of ballots and races to verify the accuracy of the machines and their programming as actually used for counting. The “logic and accuracy test” that we currently depend on is worthless.

    Oscars:
    The Departed should NOT have won for best picture (but it did). Not the best Scorcese film and not a great screenplay (too many holes/too long/too much blood spatter). The Queen or Little Miss Sunshine would have been better choices from an overall quality standpoint.
    Ellen was okay. Not great, not awful but her “in the crowd” schtick got old.
    Too many film interludes and so the program was about 45 minutes longer than scheduled.
    No really great speeches.
    Worst: Celine Dion singing (nothing new there)
    Funny: Clint Eastwood tranlating Italian for Ennio Morricone (he didn’t get it all right)
    Very Funny: Will Farrell, Jack Black and John C. Reilly singing about funny guys never getting credit for their work.
    Almost Whoops moment: when one of Jennifer Hudson’s breasts almost escaped from her dress during her singing number
    Fashion: not much cleavage this year (Jennifer Hudson not withstanding), no major faux pas but it’s a sad day when Jennifer Lopez (!?) looks matronly (I’m thinking something’s in the oven). Kristen Dunst had probably the worst dress; demure collar on top and feathers on the bottom. Great dressing; Helen Mirren, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchet, Jada Pinkett Smith, Gwenyth Paltrow.
