I’m a student at the UW and I thought you might want to see these piece-of-shit endorsements for Dino Rossi and against I-1000 made by our piece-of-shit student newspaper, The Daily. Normally this would be irrelevant, but the Daily has a potential (idiot) readership of 20,000 and the gubernatorial race is close enough that something like this could actually tip it one way or another.
The Daily’s reasoning on Rossi:
In tough economic times, we need a candidate who can balance the budget and Dino is our guy. He’s smart, he’s savvy and he had the know-how to help Gary Locke get out of economic anguish in 2003.
For four years under Christine Gregoire, the budget was balanced. But the viaduct has remained in its status quo and the Sonics are gone.
And on I-1000:
Instead of focusing on ending life prematurely, the focus should be on providing care that increases the quality of life during those last months.
I’m guessing there are more than a few dissenting UW students and alumni in the Slog mob, so I’ll save you all the trouble of digging this up yourself: here’s the email address for Daily editor Sarah Jeglum.
