“The David Goldstein Show,” tonight on News/Talk 710-KIRO

Tonight on “The David Goldstein Show”, 7PM to 10PM on News/Talk 710-KIRO:

7PM: Were the folks at The Stranger drunk…?
Was the Stranger Election Control Board drunk when they endorsed “No” on Prop 1 and “Yes” on Tim Burgess? Did they hit the bottle after Venus Velazquez got pulled over for a DUI just days after earning the SECB endorsement? Will they lose a drinking buddy if Councilman Richard McIver loses his council seat? Josh Feit joins us for The Stranger Hour, to discuss these and other issues of the day.

8PM: What is the Armenian Genocide, and why does it matter?
It looks like House Democrats are preparing to back off a resolution condemning the Turkish genocide of Armenians during World War I. Realpolitik? Cowardice? Prof. Peter Balakian joins us for the hour to fill us in on the history of the genocide and why it matters.

9PM: Regional Blogger Roundup
A round-table discussion of regional and national news with TJ from Loaded Orygun, Jim from McCranium and McJoan from Daily Kos. TJ’s going tell us Portlanders really hate their light rail, Joan will tell us if Idahoans really love Sen. Craig (you know, in a platonic sense,) and Jimmy’s gonna tell us why the hell he’s running for office. That and other stuff.

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

    Jindal wins La. governor’s race

    11:08 PM CDT on Saturday, October 20, 2007

    BATON ROUGE, La. — Republican Congressman Bobby Jindal, the 36-year-old son of Indian immigrants, won the Louisiana governor’s race Saturday, carrying more than half the vote against 11 opponents to become the state’s first non-white governor since Reconstruction.

    Feel it slipping moonbats? Maybe not, the democrat congress does have an 11% approval rating and 50% of Americans definitely won’t vote for your queen Hillary but they may vote for your queen John Edwards.

    It has been a tough week for moonbats. I think they will have many more tough weeks ahead. Hehehehehe

    Congrats to Bobby Jindal, the man preferred by Ray Nagin over Kathleen Blanco 4 years ago.

    Who was the Dem again?

    A man of color running things down South is a good thing but we must remember we’re talking about Louisiana where things are done a little differently.

    But seriously, congrats to Jindal and I hope the future is not business as usual down there.

    Doofus @ 3

    Let’s see. a woman who contributed the full amount to Obama won the Limbaugh letter and Limbaugh ponies up 2 mil of his own cash to help families of Marines. He’s two million poorer if he doesn’t weasel out of it. I have no problem with that.

    A lot of Republicans and some weak-kneeded Dems voted against children. Let’s see a repeat when the SCHIP bill comes up again.

    To keep voting against kids will mean that some Dems will face primary challenges and some Republicans will be replaced with Dems.

    I have no problem with that.

    Anything else?

    Ahhh. The wingnuts going on about Hillary. Who’s their leading man? Rudy? The cross-dresser, thrice divorced, the man who was reponsible for firemen dying in the towers because of the lousy radios he sweethearted with Motorola that couldn’t even talk to the police bands. The same man who located the emergency command center in the world trade center after it had been a target in 1992.

    Yeah, that moron is the R front-runner.

    Democrat women in power:

    The Oxford-educated Jindal had lost the governor’s race four years ago to Gov. Kathleen Blanco. He won the a congressional seat in conservative suburban New Orleans a year later but was widely believed to have his eye on the governor’s mansion. Blanco opted not to run for re-election after she was widely blamed for the state’s slow response to hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005.

    Congrats are in order to Jindal and the best of wishes on cleaning up a mess of amazing proportions.

    Don’t expect too much in the way of Big Things from his election as governor. Louisiana has not suddenly found a love for large C Conservatism. They have been furious (and rightly so) with a political class which has been ineffective and corrupt.

    The point of having a government run by good ol’ boys (and girls) is that they’re supposed to be able to end run around bureaucracy and pull money out of thin air when it’s needed. If they fail to do that when required, the one and only reason in the world for tolerating corruption and pilfering is gone.

    What Louisiana wants now is government which is competent and boring. While that’s not one of the R’s core businesses, if an R delivers that, more power to him.

    If you think Washington’s (the one we live in) leaders have much in common with Louisiana’s other than D’s after their names, you need to pull your head out of the Elephant Echo Chamber for a few days.

    While I could really care less about Jindal becoming the next governor of Louisiana (good luck, sucker), what in the hell are they doing holding elections in October? Couldn’t wait a month? Oh well, they DO do things differently in the South, and my Southern friends have told me before that Louisianans are weird by their standards. That tells you all you need to know. That, and Vitter the Shitter….. Shining example of the GOP, isn’t he?

    @9…BJ…

    Not just the south, but Louisiana does stuff differently than every other state in the union. It’s the only state to not adopt the Uniform Commercial Code (at least the last time I looked), and it’s legal system more closely approximates the Napoleonic civil code than the English Common Law the basis of law for the rest of the country.

    It’s just flat out different down there.

    But in Bobby Jindal, Cajun voters hit a home run! I wonder…too early to see his name on a national ticket??? Constitutionally, he’s now old enough, so why not? Vice President Jindal? I’m liking the sound of that already!

    So you would, eh? And this from a guy who likes to dress up in a plaid skirt and squeeze the remains of a dead sheep to produce cacophanous whining noises whilst marching about in public.

    “8PM: What is the Armenian Genocide, and why does it matter?”

    It matters becuase it once again exposes congressional democrats desire to undermine the USA and the war on islamic extremists.
    I mean WTF?

    Let’s piss off Turkey. That sounds like a good idea…
    Main re-supply depot for US efforts in Iraq. Shut off the oil pipeline from the northern oil fields of Iraq to the med. Insult a democratic ally in the middle east…

    Why do that? Well.. Democrats strategy is tied to the failure of the US in Iraq.

    I wonder, if genocide is a priority for congressional democrats, why not pass some resolutions on Darfur?? Get after the UN for doing NOTHING….(not that the UN does anything) The answer is becuase congressional democrats are not interested in genocide…They are interested in the failure of the USA in Iraq and think that will somehow boost their political power….

    You’re just fucking delusional. Are you a John Bircher?

    You doubtless believe the moon landing was staged?

    Careful on your walks. You don’t weant to risk falling off the edge.

    Are you related to Piper Scott?

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    @2 I would guess this is fallout from the Katrina fiasco, and since Democrats were in charge at the local and state levels, Democratic candidates at those levels are going to pay the price. And, since Republicans bobbled the federal disaster relief, I would guess that Louisiana voters are going to have their revenge on Republican candidates for federal offices, as well.

    @11 Man, you ARE desperate, aren’t you? Is Jindal the New South’s* answer to Barack Obama? We’ll see.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    Of course, if I were a Republican, I’d be looking at my party’s first-tier candidates and then looking at the second-, third-, fourth-tier and entry-level candidates, too. In fact, an entry-level candidate might be their best bet right now — how about a housewife from Yonkers, or a waitress from Lubbock? Either would have more credibility than any of the GOPers on that stage right now.

    @13 Speaking of Darfur, whooooo is in charge of the U.S. government right now, and whooooo is doing nothing? You know who I mean, the commander guy, whatzisname.

    Your total lack of response and attemps at personal attatcks tell me all I need to know about how true my assertions are.

    You’re as disturbed as your airport stall-buddy Piper. You DO make an attractive pair of somewhat pathetic loons. Your premise establishes your credibility. sicko.

    Right Stuff spews:

    My premise is that the FAILED attempt by congressional democrats to undermine, alienate, and discredit a key ally in the global war on terror proves the investment democrats have in US failure in the middle east.

    Your premise is name calling.

    Interesting that the congressional democrats attempt this as reports out of Iraq are that Al Qaeda is certainly fatally wounded.

    Once again. Good news for USA in Iraq = Bad news for democrats.
