At Dan Satterberg’s Rocking Party in Burien

posted by on November 6 at 20:54 PM

[Reported by Lindy and Megan.]

At Dan Satterberg’s party in Mick Kelly’s Irish Pub in Burien, Dan Satterberg’s 11-year-old daughter’s best friend just got into a BMW with vanity plates that say “SOLDOUT.” Before ducking out, the precocious girl (who’s almost 11) told Lindy that Dan Satterberg “is fair and will serve justice to King County.”

Lindy reports that everyone here is white and that half of them have a hearing aid. There is a band that may or may not be Dan Satterberg’s, but he hasn’t joined them on stage.

Tim Eyman arrived and soon mistook our intrepid reporter for “a waitress.” After declining to take his drink order, Megan asked Eyman if he voted for Dan Satterberg. “Sure!”, he said. “Really?” “No, actually I don’t live in King County.” He’s already declaring victory for I-960, but there is no 960 party, so he came to Dan Satterberg’s instead. He then apologizes for calling Megan a waitress.

The snacks are mediocre—not the best egg rolls, not the worst egg rolls.

Megan also interviewed Satterberg supporter Joel Harvey, who’s wearing a Mount St. Helen’s muscle tee and a US war veteran’s cap. Did you vote for Dan Satterberg? “Yes.” Why? “Because he makes things right.” Why did you come here tonight? “Like in a sexual way?” Awkward pause. “Why I came here tonight is the same reason I became a first captain in Vietnam.” So Dan Satterberg’s party is like Vietnam? “Yes.”

I was just at the Westin, poked my head in to see if there was a Prop 1 party going on, and the signs said it was a 960 party. I was a little confused.

This is why you shouldn't go to parties in Burien.

Guy at the end was probably just trying to hit on Megan and screwed up. Shouldn't hold his rambling against him, lol!
