The difference in media coverage of Joe Biden... and Marc Boldt?

(FULL DISCLOSURE: I freely admit that I am totally opposed to Marc Boldt's election this time, just as I was last time, since he's completely sold out to the left; forgotten/ignored GOP principles, supports the CRC scam in it's entirety and wants to hang tolls around our neck for the next several decades that would destroy a great deal of small business in Clark County as a result.

NO candidate or campaign or anyone involved or in any way concerned with any candidate or campaign was aware of or approved or had input into this post.

Further, Marc Boldt is my brother-in-law, and I worked for him as his legislative assistant for 6 years while he was in the state house, 1994 - 2000.)

I've been wondering all along if the reason Biden dropped out of the presidential race back in 87 or 88 because, lacking the ability of original thought, he began to plagiarize others... most noticeably, Neal Kinnock and Robert Kennedy.

(Kinnock was the British Labor Party Leader around that time and, well, RFK was RFK)

And... he got caught.  The subsequent media fire storm effectively ended any chance for his presidential aspirations then... and he bailed out.

That same issue should be problematic for him even now, and if the media were doing their job instead of acting like the DNC paid them, the very idea of Biden running would be prefaced with his plagiarism.

You know, like the democratian prefaces any mention of my name with the letters to the editor issue of some 15 years ago they keep bringing up?

The media isn't talking all that much about Biden's lack of originality.  And that, of course, is because he's a leftist.

The local rag beats me up because I used a fake name to continue communicating via letter to the editor to protect my then boss, Marc Boldt, who would have been held accountable for my words had the connection been made.  Marc and every other GOP politician in Olympia knew who I was and what I was doing, but never once suggested or demanded that I stop doing it since they, like me, felt the message was more important than the messenger.

The rag, of course, hated my message so they continue to ignore them, instead, focusing on who I am while forgetting the contents of the messages... which is far easier since my letters were typically beating the hell out of their "screw democracy" and "screw what the people want" positions.

That hasn't changed a lick, but those down there who act so outraged over the episode also know it to be the truth.

And that dovetails nicely with this observation: like any other leftist politician these days, the rag gives Boldt a complete pass.

They don't write about the issues that can damage him.  When they write about my PDC complaints against Boldt, for example, they bury it in another part of the rag designed to allow their fringe-left reporters to savage those they hate... an obvious violation of journalistic tenets and an obvious conflict of interest for those who's primary function is to report what happened without running it through their fringe-left hatred filter... a part most folks outside the political realm don't bother to read.

That a candidate's brother-in-law and former staffer now strongly opposes his election to anything for purely political reasons would be frequent, above the fold, front page headlines.

Even now, they've failed to mention my PDC complaint against Sen. Ann "Gas Tax" Rivers, my former business partner, because her PDC's show an impossibly large amount of money in her campaign account.

But then, her and Brancaccio are really buds.  Lou breaks out another can of industrial strength Just-For-Men every time he sees her.

Family member opposition to an election is as rare as hen's lips.  But the fact here is that these clowns like Boldt because he's carried their water at the expense of ours for all the years he was a commissioner.  The problem here is who is doing the opposition, because you also don't read that I was a former executive director of the state GOP.

They didn't endorse him in the primary because like so many others, they knew he was a mile wide and an inch deep and felt that he had no chance... so, when they talk about it at all, it's in a whisper.

Now, they're caught in a quandary.  They want Boldt, but had already endorsed that fringe-left whack job Dalesandro.

What to do... what to do.

Meanwhile, I have written about Boldt's issues: his rabid support of the CRC and Loot Rail, his consecutive years of tax increases... his voting to give money to a vendor so his wife could get paid... his voting for a county ordinance that would have had the effect of disarming us during a county or state-declared emergency as his knee-jerk to Hurricane Katrina... and most recently, his penchant for texting while driving... a recent hobby that can and does get people killed.

You see much of any of that in any of the stories the rag's doing about him?


Why not?

And that's the difference.

Had I not called the rag out on the PDC complaint, you wouldn't have heard a thing about it outside this blog.

Meanwhile, these other aspect of Marc's governance and irresponsibility are here.  The rag reads my blog roughly 5 times a day or so.  It's not like they don't know about this stuff.  It's that they don't want their readers to know.

And that's why they do their best to bury these things... unlike the media back in the day of Biden's last presidential run.
