RSS icon Comments on GOP Ally: The Seattle Times


I applaud the Times for their willingness to allow student papers to share the mantle of wussy, establishmentarian journalism.

Luke should first quit his full time in Rob Mckenna's office since he is taking his $84,000/year in state pay while running the State GOP which is a full time $85,000 position.

With a background as both a student journalist and an AP stringer, let's hope Esser's view dissents from those of the mealy-mouthed Republican cocksuckers on the House Judiciary committe (Rep. Rodne's thanking of Upthegrove for the "important" bill, shortly before trying to tear it apart).

With their editorial, The Seattle Times joined a club populated by only one other newspaper in the state (Aberdeen World? Longview News? Can't remember). And who says snobby urbanites look down on the values of rural America?

I'm on Josh's side in this one. Good work. Did you see the last line in the Times editorial? Students should work with their "superiors." Sheesh!

The deadender Reds were against freedom of the press before they were for it.

The real GOP ally is the majority of Democratic politicians who are bungling fixing the Viaduct. If Gregoire loses in '08 -- and drangs down the national election -- she will have only her own mis-steps to blame.

"Mealy-mouthed Republican cocksuckers?" Thanks for putting that stereotype that AP reporters are leftwing hacks to bed, dude.
