Comments

Spudley

Humm-de-dum-dum

HP

Can't wait to see how KS, Chucks and Puget Sound defend Reichert.

Andrew

They never do. They expect liberals to go to bat for Obama, yet they never defend their own choices.

sparky

The first Chilean miner is about to reach the top!

sparky

The Seattle Times has endorsed his opponent. Interesting.

Chucks

Why would we need to re-defend our best western Washington congressman. Been there, done that. We won then and we will win again this time.
He beat the Darcy person last time and he will beat whats her name this time. I am more interested in what is going to happen in Sparky's district.

Erik the Red Sovine

Sheriff Dave is a typical republican who rolls around in dead matter like a dog does and thinks it's great. The killer took advantage of Dave's incompetence and a lot more women died as a result. Bob Keppel did a better job than that white haired old fool.

LucasFoxx

Thanks. I'm not from around here, so this is all new to me. Having seen this guy in action (or in in-action) in DC, none of it suprises me.

wally

Agreed, no need to defend Reichert against Dem lightweights like Burner and Del Bene. I am a member of the same Lutheran denomination that Reichert belongs to. Ridgeway may be a "born-again" type, but Lutherans are DEFINTELY NOT born again. Rather pathetic how the 90% of the left wing uninformed in the media can never get simple things like this right.

sparky

So, wally, you have no problem with Sheriff Big Hair taking credit for solving a case that in reality was solved in spite of him?
I am also a Lutheran, and we tend to to take a dim view of people who do that.

wally

Reichert has a long and successful career as a public servant. That kind of service is just as impressive if not more so than someone with a middle management career at a over-bloated monopolistic software company. By working for local government Reichert certainly wasn't after the big bucks like the women on the other side of the aisle. Sounds to me like Reichert has found his "vocation." If you are Lutheran then you already know all about that, right?

The bs in this article was so thick I had to use a shovel to get to the bottom. Most Dems don't understand the appeal of a guy like Reichert. No attempt at objectivity or balance on this blog.

Puget Sound

LMAO, when Sparkles tries to cloak a feeling of outrage in the mantle of her religous status. As 'IF' being a Lutheran gave you an extra edge in the outrage department. Too funny.

By the way, if you have some special knowledge of how this case was solved why don't you take it to the newspapers. It would be a great story.
'So-Called Hero a Zero' would be a headline and one of the local Dems could beat his pants off.

Hasn't happened now has it...facts, are damn inconvenient things. Always getting in the way of a good story.

HP

Sparky wasn't the one who brought up Lutheranism first. Puget Sound, do you ever have anything of substance to add here or is your paid position just to act superior to everyone? Apparently you AND "wally" think it's fine for him to take all the credit. Thanks for clearing that up.

HP

Speaking of idiots, Puget Sound did you happen to read this?

"Glenn Beck went into new territory this morning, telling his audience that he felt that possible "toxins" and "poisons" affecting his health could be traced to his studies of progressives. After detailing several recent health ailments he has been experiencing, he suggested that the "poisons" his doctors are looking for are linked to his attempts to "understand the minds of" progressives, which he termed "drinking that poison which others may not find poison but I do because it is exact opposite of me."

Brilliant man!

HP

If he's having numbness in his hands and feet, given his years of alcohol and drug abuse, it's probably alcoholic polyneuropathy.
That, and rubbing Vick's Vapo-rub into his eyes so he can cry on camera.

The poisons were self-induced.

HP

A tad defensive, eh Spar..oooops, I mean "HP" LMAO
Usually it's Coils who is dragged out from whatever rock he resides who does the "scut work" to shore up Sparkles miscues.
Funny to see the "handles" spread around a bit. Nice touch.

Puget Sound

no real comment on Glen Beck. I don't quote him or listen to his show.

Andrew

If liberals have to answer for Obama then you have to answer for Beck. Explain him. And explain yourself.

KS

Liberals don't have to answer for Obama. Obama has to answer for Obama, which he can't seem to grasp. He is not used to not getting his way and it shows in his recent bloviating.

As for Beck, he is an entertainer that bloviates with a flair for drama, but it seems like the best way an issue can be made of him is to quote him out of context, per the Alinsky handbook.

KS

Beck has a conspiracy theorist side, which he displayed in the quote about the toxins, or maybe he was creating a way to diss progressives and was trying to pull the chains of the left, which he seems to be succeeding at. He may come across as a rodeo clown, but he is not nearly as clueless as the left would like to hope that he is - bwahahahaha

I noticed that it was sprinkled with a dose of irony and seasoned with sarcasm, but I am not that enamered by Reichert. This blog posts are not known for their balance and it is up to the commenters to balance it with their comments, within the realm of civility.

Puget Sound 'splaining' things to Andrew

If liberals have to answer for Obama then you have to answer for Beck. Explain him. And explain yourself.

Posted by: Andrew | October 16, 2010 at 05:36 PM

KS is correct. Beck is an entertainer, just like Limbaugh.
Neither of whom I listen to for news or cite as a source.

As far as explaining myself, imagine that you were more educated, more traveled, and more able to look at both sides of an issue.
Does that help, Andrew?

KS

PS - I am dubious that it will help any... LOL

Puget Sound

Andrew has shown himself to be Less Educated, Less Traveled, and Less able to look at both sides of an issue.

No wonder Duff refused to hire him as an intern.

Erik the Red Sovine

Why concern yourself with other posters, you seem obsessed. Does your man know you spend quality time in here?

KS

FYI - you are missing the history and the context here.

Erik the Red Sovine

You have no history, just aimless distraction.

KS

Smart one - I see that you are full of bovine squeeze.

BlackRhino

Jeebus on a cracker KS, are you at it again? Do I need to spank you and Putz again?

BlackRhino

Reichert is a creepy son of a bitch. His hair alone should warn anyone of his intents.

Andrew

It's not my fault that conservatives have chosen media clowns to be their leaders. Sarah Palin is cited as the reason many tea party candidates won primaries.

Hey Andrew, after Pres Obama name some of the national leaders of substance that the Liberals have that you follow?

Puget Sound

I guess you are more comfortable with the Senator Carl 'combing it over' Levin route? Or do you favor VP Joe 'Plugs' Biden?


Puget Sound

It's funny how people can only quibble around the edges on Reichart.
'Took too much credit' or 'creepy hair' yet can't offer a viable alternative to his candidacy.

Ross failed with greater name recognition, Burner failed (twice during a time of strong Dem showings), and now people are pining their hopes that a relative unknown will unseat Reichart in a Republican year?

Geez, if you can't bring some substance to the people of his district it's unlikely you'll see unseat the man.
His voting record has been moderate enough to keep the center.

Anyone want to take the other side of that argument?

Andrew, BR, Coils (if we can tear you away from that 4th box of ho-ho's), Sparkles the farting dog, ph(J)oanie? et al

joanie

One brief shining moment of intelligent talk and then he's back to his stupid fantasies and begging someone to talk to him again. Face it, sputs, you've got chuckles and klueless. Everybody else outclasses you.

HP

You think I'm Miss Sparky???

Brilliant! It makes my words here that much more fun, watching you fall all over yourself being an ass.

Puget Sound

Joanie and HP, now if only we had Coiler posting the methane count (aka usual suspect count) would be at record levels.

Still waiting for Andrew to answer up but he'll no doubt be a no show on that account.

sparky

There's no convincing a fool, HP.
Putzie is "never wrong."
He will tell you so himself. (Usually by cut and paste.)
