Looking around, it seems we're stuck with a shortage of candidates. Wonder why?
Maybe it's the filth the local rag doles out to those wise enough to oppose their agenda.
Maybe it's the establishment ignoring the primary process and endorsing candidates months, if not years, in advance of the election... and candidates buying endorsements with promises of a job (Right, Ryan?)
But we're closing in on the end of January, and there is yet to be any announced candidates for the seats in the 49th (Who's running for Pridemore's seat?) on either side; same in the 17th, same in the 18th, save for Liz Pike announcing for Orcutt's vacant seat.
What the hell is up with that?
Remember last cycle?
There were something like 3,000 candidates announced for the vacant 18th seat, thankfully evacuated by Ridgefield Barbie. Why is there only one announced candidate now?
And no one has announced against either Boldt or Mielke.
At the US Senate level, there's one guy no one's ever heard of running against Cantwell, a colossal waste of political skin who has accomplished dick during her wasted tenure... much like the state cow, her seat mate.
For the governor's seat, there's two leftists and one conservative running.
For the AG, there's three leftists and an uber-conservative.
What's the hold up? Is everyone afraid of the Bellevue Mafia, Identity Vancouver, CRUDEC, Chamber of Horrors types infesting us?
Times-a-wastin', boys and girls.
SOMEbody needs to run against Boldt... even if it's me.
Let's get the show on the road.
