I just found this quote from Friday’s Seattle P-I so amusing — and revealing — that I just had to share it before I headed off to bed:
Rick Schroeder said his support for Irons had nothing to do with policy issues relating to road building or construction.
“He’s a property-rights guy,” Schroeder said of Irons. “He doesn’t ramrod trails right through the back yard of people’s properties as Ron Sims does.”
Schroeder lives in Sammamish but is not, he said, one of the homeowners along the East Lake Sammamish Trail who protested the Sims-backed plan to reclaim the public right of way for the trail that they had encroached on.
Um… so by “a property-rights guy” Schroeder means supporting private landowners’ rights to public property.
What a putz.
