Trick or Treat

trickorvote2009-1

As usual, I’ll be dressed up in my scary Tim Eyman costume, trick or treating with my daughter, and frightening the neighborhood kids, but if you don’t have plans and are looking for a fun and productive way to celebrate the holiday, I suggest you check out this year’s Trick or Treat canvassing party thrown by the Washington Bus:

This year, we’re partnering with the Approve Referendum 71 campaign and the No on 1033 campaign to present Trick or Vote in both Seattle and Spokane. For the Seattle event, Trick or Voters are meeting up at the Old Rainier Cold Storage in Georgetown (5840 Airport Way S) at 2:00 for a brief training before heading out to all corners of the city to talk to voters about turning in their ballots, voting yes on Referendum 71 and against Initiative 1033. In Spokane, attendees will gather at the Community Building Warehouse (17 W Main Avenue) before fanning out across town.

And of course, there’s an afterparty. It’s going down at Old Rainier Cold Storage, with free food, drink (for those of age), music by Selector Tang, and dancing by everyone. All free, all ages, all good.

Have fun!

    Goldy–
    I hate to spoil your Secular “Holiday” but:

    Saturday, October 31, 2009

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 29% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -10. The Approval Index has been in negative double digits for 14 of the last 16 days.

    Election Day is Tuesday and Republicans are likely to win back the Governor’s mansion in Virginia.

    I imagine all the costume stores in Seattle/King Kounty are sold out of KLOWN costumes.

    Oh and yet another nightmare for Halloween–
    Friday, October 23, 2009

    For the first time in recent years, voters trust Republicans more than Democrats on all 10 key electoral issues regularly tracked by Rasmussen Reports. The GOP holds double-digit advantages on five of them.

    Republicans have nearly doubled their lead over Democrats on economic issues to 49% to 35%, after leading by eight points in September. The GOP also holds a 54% to 31% advantage on national security issues and a 50% to 31% lead on the handling of the war in Iraq.

    And the Lefty Republican drops out of the NY Congressional Race

    In NJ–

    A Fairleigh Dickinson University survey shows that 41 percent of likely New Jersey voters back Republican Chris Christie, a former federal prosecutor, while 39 percent favor Jon Corzine, the state’s incumbent governor who is seeking a second term. Fourteen percent of respondents support independent candidate Chris Daggett. The telephone poll of 694 likely voters was taken Oct. 22-28 and has a sampling error margin of plus or minus 4 percentage points.

    Christie leads Corzine 42 percent to 35 percent on the question of “which candidate better understands the concerns of the average person,”

    Democrats OUT OF TOUCH

    Hey Goldy, if Dow shows up does he have to tell everyone he is a sex offender?

    Nope, just wear an “I’M A PERVERT” sign around his neck.

    Mao Constantine spews:

    Very cute. When you’re getting your ass kicked (see, e.g., recent polls), pull out the old “commie” label.

    Word on the street is that the poll to which you refer is an outlier. Best guess is that the contest is too close to call.

    I fail to see the connection between the fact Constantine’s first name is “Dow” and a chemical company founded by a guy whose last name was “Dupont.” Running scared now, are you? (See, e.g., recent polls.)

    No connection. Just twisting your cute little pink tail.

    … you wingnuts will be kicked to the curb again just 4 days from now.

    Only if Dow admits that he did it, goddammit, and he’s glad. That way he not only gets you HA pervs, but he might get some crossovers from people like me who didn’t think he had any testosterone in him.

    Or perhaps you’re just pulling fiction out of your ass. Is there some substance to this, or did you just make it up?

    Dow only knows. And the Babe. And the judge. And the Seattle Times. It’s either/or. Just sayin’ that Dow can save all a lot of trouble by telling us — before Tuesday — what he did or is alleged to have done.

    Notwithstanding your belief, stated above, that we have no such right to see the charges and get a grip on the truth about Suzie’s lack of employment references …

    Did not say that. Did not write it. Did not type it. Stated only that bottom feeders like you got more transparancy from Suzie Huckabee than you deserved.

    We deserve transparancy from Dow about what he did or is alleged to have done on KC time and on our dime.

    But none of this matters because Rabbit already voted, early and often, for the Dowager. Perhaps that’s a defect of our mail-in mania: it innoculates bad boys from late October surprises because their dittoheads didn’t wait for full disclosure before mailing in.

    And note, despite what some of you Goldycrats say, how careful Griswold at Shark’s Place has been about this. No rushing to judgement. No jumping to conclusions. No attempt to overstate or misrepresent the facts we have now.

    In other words, Dow is being treated with infinitely more fairness and balance than any mere Republican would be treated.

    Some things are clearer now than they were before. Now we know that Dow was indeed the object of Jane Doe’s complaint, not the other way around. Way past time for the Dowager to tell us the rest of the story.

    Well Cynical, if your Republican douchebags win, it will serve as an example of who NOT to vote for in the subsequent elections.

    What’s a Republican governor going to do? Tell you how much he’s NOT going to do ?

    I wonder if Tim Eyman is dressing up as Goldy?

    One year after the 2008 presidential election Fox News polled people and asked:

    How would you have voted in the 2008 presidential election, if you knew what you know now – for Barack Obama or John McCain?

    48% Obama, 41% McCain

    The survey of 900 registered voters was taken Oct. 27-28 and has a margin of error of 3 percent.

    Via the PI and Fair Use yada yada

    So FOX NEWS pisses all over Asshole Cynical….Hmmmmm…..

    That’s exactly the reason the “republican douchebag” will be elected. The democrat that held the office was an example of which party NOT to vote for.

    Mr. Cynical spews:

    X’ad–
    You conveniently forgot this part–

    48 percent — say President Obama is meeting or exceeding expectations, down from 66 percent who thought so in March. At the same time, nearly half — 47 percent — say he is falling below their expectations — twice the number (23 percent) who thought his performance was sub par when polled in March 2009.

    Also, this is NOT a poll of likely voters.
    Who cares what non-voters think.

    Correct they like free “shit”.

    @4 When you show up, you don’t have to tell people you’re an idiot, because it’s obvious.

    Roger Rabbit spews:

    “Best guess is that the contest is too close to call.”

    Wishful thinking you mean.

    “Just twisting your cute little pink tail.”

    I do have a cute tail, but it’s white, like the rest of my fur.

    “Only if Dow admits that he did it, goddammit, and he’s glad.”

    He’s innocent until proven guilty.

    “Dow only knows. And the Babe. And the judge. And the Seattle Times. It’s either/or. Just sayin’ that Dow can save all a lot of trouble by telling us — before Tuesday — what he did or is alleged to have done.”

    At this point, neither the judge, the Seattle Times, nor Mark Griswold know anything at all. Dow and the babe aren’t talking, so you’ll just have to wait.

    “Did not say that. Did not write it. Did not type it.”

    What exactly did you write/type, then?

    “We deserve transparancy from Dow about what he did or is alleged to have done on KC time and on our dime.”

    If this is the latest wingnut sound bite, all I’ll say is, practice what you preach.

    “But none of this matters because Rabbit already voted, early and often, for the Dowager.”

    I voted a couple days ago. I didn’t vote for Suzie. She’s unqualified. In addition, she’s a liar. And a Republican. That’s at least 3 reasons not to vote for her. There’s more, but I won’t take the time to list them all.
