We all know the PI is circling the drain at a faster and faster rate, but today, they tried to speed up the process of becoming a journalistic footnote by writing like the demented leftist morons they are, that Rep. Dave Reichert's vote against the "Generational Indebtedness Act" was "partisan."
These fringe-left shills conveniently forgot about the 11 DEMOCRAT House Members who voted against the GIA, including Rep. Jim Cooper, (D-TN) who said the following about his vote:
"Well, I probably shouldn't tell you this, but I actually got some quiet encouragement from the Obama folks for what I'm doing," said Cooper, one of only 11 Democrats to vote against the economic stimulus plan that passed the House last week.For the Pravda Izvestia to blast a Republican Congressman for doing WHAT IT APPEARS THAT OUR DEMOCRAT PRESIDENT'S ADMINISTRATION WANTED HIM TO DO is the height of symptomology as to why this rag is going down..
"They know it's a messy bill and they wanted a clean bill," he said. "Now, I got in terrible trouble with our leadership because they don't care what's in the bill, they just want it to pass and they want it to be unanimous."
If their WERE any partisan votes; votes based only on party affiliation, it was the DEMOCRATS who locked up on another in a series of terrible bills design to strip us of our money for decades to come... for generations to come.
The fumes of the reeking hypocrisy of the PI announce it's downfall. In a few years, quizzes about Seattle's history will include the question: "Name the leftist version of Pravda, the newspaper of the Soviet Union, now out of business in Seattle."
With this kind of disgraceful "journalism," the only wonder is that they lasted this long before the public wised up to kick them to the curb.

Loyal opposition: Still out of touch
SEATTLE POST-INTELLIGENCER EDITORIAL BOARD
Ten days ago Republicans in Congress talked about how important it was to work with the new Obama administration. Ten days? A fading distant memory.
One group of moderates -- the Republican Main Street Partnership -- put it this way: "We need a real bipartisan commitment from members of the House, the Senate and the new administration."
That was then. When the House votes were tallied for the $819 billion stimulus bill, not one Republican, moderate or conservative, could find a way to vote yes. Sure, it's not a perfect bill. It probably doesn't go far enough because it's clear that more will be needed to right this economy. That's the reason this stimulus package had broad support from economists and businesses, as well as state and local governments. Doing something -- even if not enough -- was better than Congress stuck in a partisan bog.
Elections matter -- and the country voted to give President Barack Obama the job because we're tired of hearing "tax cuts" as the solution to every economic problem. Yet there they go again. Moderates (including our region's Rep. Dave Reichert) were 100 percent in line with an out-of-touch party leadership.
