Politics David Blomstrom Probably Thinks You’re a Whore

Yesterday, I fell a little bit in love with school board candidate David Blomstrom, who seems to have some hefty anger management issues. Blomstrom refers to nearly all of his opponents as “whores,” and has all kinds of wild conspiracy theories. He’s basically the school board version of Stan Lippman.
I tried to get Blomstrom to come in for candidate interview (because I love crazy) but he emailed to let me know he doesn’t do interviews with “corporate media.”
I emailed back “Have you ever read our paper?”
This was his response:
Sure have. I loved the issue where your staff called me “the requisite loony” (apparently because I hate Bill Gates) and endorsed an ESTABLISHMENT heavyweight named Judith Billings, mostly because she has AIDS (“We love HIV!”)…*
They also noted that Billings was “racking up endorsements.” That’s kind of like endorsing candidates who are racking up money. I mean, we all know what kind of candidate gets all the money, corrupt endorsements and media publicity in this town.
Then there’s this page, where The Stranger endorsed four assholes in one fell swoop, Theresa Cardamone, Darlene Flynn, Brita Butler- Wall, and Irene Stewart…
Hello, does anyone at The Stranger do any RESEARCH? Irene Stewart is a member of Mayor Greg Nickels’ administration. That means she’s an INSIDER. She’s corrupt. Or, as I like to call ‘em, she’s a WHORE.
Of course, we’ve all seen how wonderful Darlene Flynn and Brita Butler-Wall turned out to be. Ah, Brita. For years, I tried to get her to join me in campaigning for an independent audit of the school district, but all she cared about was fighting Coca Cola - until she decided to run for office. Then she immediately transformed into Seattle’s premier fiscal hawk. Until after she got appointed…er, elected. Then she changed back to the Coca Cola Queen. I could go on and on, but I think you get my drift. All the evidence suggests The Stranger is indeed an establishment lap dog, no matter how passionately you and your cronies protest to the contrary.
Frankly, I think it would be most appropriate for The Stranger to endorse my opponent, “Whorium.” He apparently has no issues - just like The Stranger.
I can’t help but love this guy.
*By the way, we endorsed Billings—who wanted to kill the WASL—over Bergeson, the established incumbent.]
