Election Night Why Can’t We Be Friends?

The SECB ran into Jason Osgood, the barcode-obsessed Democratic candidate for WA Secretary of State, at Gerry Pollet’s party at Mr. Villa’s in Lake City.
Right now Sam Reed, the Stranger-endorsed Republican candidate for Secretary of State (the only Stranger-endorsed Republican candidate), is thumping Osgood. Reed’s got 54% of the vote so far, Osgood’s got 39%.
Asked about the numbers, Osgood replied: “I’ll get back to you.”
Then Osgood informed the SECB that he wasn’t pleased about the Stranger endorsement interview process. He felt it was set up in such a way to ensure the interviews turned into a “cockfights.” Then Osgood informed the SECB that he was on the debate team. He didn’t specify if he was on a college debate team or a high school debate team. Then he told the SECB that we could be friends and proceeded to share his recipe for couscous salad with the SECB.
We are not making this up.
