שקט בבקשה

posted by on December 7 at 13:59 PM

This week’s Sheket Bavakasha! (that’s STFU when spat out by an angry Hebrew school teacher) goes to State Senator Margarita Prentice. Prentice is still pushing for a subsidy for the Sonics even though the idea was already killed by the legislature in 2005 and 2006.

Reporter Chris McGann has the story in yesterday’s PI.

The story ends with this bit of wisdom from the incorrigible Prentice:

For those who complain that millionaires would end up the being recipients of public dollars:

“Poor people don’t buy teams,” she said.

And poor people can’t afford to go see the teams play either. Sheeesh. !שקט בבקשה

Another choice quote from the article:

As for the state subsidy Nickels is demanding: "I'm not going to rule out any kind of extortion because it could be that we have to do it," Prentice said.

Oh yeah. It’s not extortion if the Sonics want it. Who does she think she is, Paul Allen?

I agree, why haven't they left already?

When three-quarters of us vote one way, we're NOT joking.

More importantly, why hasn't Margarita left already? On almost every issue she advocates against progressive interests.

...if ever an issue could get a Democratic incumbent unelected in a Seattle district, blind support for stadia is it.

Amen Time to go, amen. This is the lady that defends predatory lenders by saying that they( the loan sharks) also hire a lot of folks from the community. Yeah, but they take a lot and help the poor become more impoverished. Too bad she is in a safe district in a small race that nobody pays attention to.

Margarita Prentice will piss on all your graves. Who, exactly, is going to render her "toast?" Let's hear it.

No one, Ivan, no one. But they should. Margarita may have been a fine legislator at a one time, but now she is half bought and paid for, half crazy, mixed with a ton of power. Time to go.
