War of the Blogs

Apparently you don't have to be "vast" to be part of the "right-wing conspiracy." Our Seattle event at the Downtown Republican Club earned mention on a blog run by the Initiative 884 campaign:

There's nothing like a whiff of the opposition to get a campaign and its supporters jazzed up. After Natalie convened the whole staff for a planning session, we all got to the phones and began calling people we know in the area to stand outside and wave signs as well as sit inside and ask pointed questions to the forum's right-wing panelists (people from the Evergreen Freedom Foundation and conservative Washington Policy Center, among others).

The "others" they don't mention included Charles Hoff, former assistant school superintendent and teacher, and current member of the Federal Way School Board. He wasn't speaking for the Board, but it must scare them to admit that someone with firsthand knowledge of our state's schools agrees mo' money ain't the answer.

Their blog continued into absurdity . . .

It's really quite remarkable the gall these people have, to come to a community that values education as much as Seattle does and tell us how to spend our money.

Think about that for a minute. These people are trying to raise your taxes and my taxes by $1 billion a year, and when we say "hey, wait just a minute," they're outraged and affronted.

I'm not sure I can comprehend it.

If the conspiracy is no longer vast, it's because you've stopped enforcing the doughnut rule. Now go to Ralph's and make amends.
