Politics Elliott, We Endorsed You Already!
Seattle Times reporter David Postman blogs about Republican contributor Mistress Madison who donated $1000 to Mike McGavick’s campaign. (The check, from dominatrix Mistress Madison’s Madison Communications, bounced).
McGavick spokesperson Elliott Bundy told Postman:
Apparently business is slow at “Madison Communications,” the check came into us non-sufficient funds. Too bad though, for a second I thought we had a chance to get the endorsement of the Stranger.
Elliott, we endorsed Mike! already… at least in the primary. Anyone who can hit 0.17 BAC! is going to get the Stranger Election Control Board endorsement.
Here’s that endorsement—published last week.
U.S. SENATOR (REPUBLICAN) VOTE FOR MIKE McGAVICK
Okay, only good Democrats read our endorsements and like all good Democrats you’re occasionally tempted to cross party lines and indulge in a bit of anti-GOP monkey wrenching—you know, go vote for the right-wing nut to up his or her numbers and make the GOP look bad. To that end we were about to recommend one of the fuckwits in this race—someone like William Chovil, who pledges to take on national and global socialism and communism, or Brad Klippert, who describes himself as a “Ten Commandment—honoring evangelical.”
However, that was before the GOP frontrunner—ex-Safeco CEO Mike McGavick—came out about his 0.17 drunk-driving arrest and issued a mea culpa about his divorce. It wasn’t McGavick’s heavy drinking and broken vows that won him our endorsement (we are thinking of having a 0.17 party though), but the expectation that more evidence of McGavick’s self-destructive streak will emerge during the campaign. Drunk driving? Divorce? If those are the skeletons McGavick has shoved out of his closet, we wonder what skeletons are still in there somewhere.
