Sherman’s Subdued Party

posted by on November 6 at 21:03 PM

[Reported by Brendan Kiley.]

It’s sort of subdued here at the Mainstage Comedy Club, where Sherman (our man for King County Prosecutor) just announced the percentages for the first drop: 46% for him, 54% for his opponent (who’s having his party out in Burien).

Everyone is shrugging-sad and heads back to the bar for another drink, while Kevin of the band Dave Hates Chico, who will be playing later, warms up in the lobby of the club. “What do you think about the numbers, Kevin?” “Pretty close, dude. But seems like he’s got to get some more votes, man.”

Everyone’s talking about RTID.

I ask several people why the prosecutor’s seat has been Republican for so long. Sherman supporter Brendan Donckers said, “I don’t want to say anything unpleasant or disrespectful of Norm Maleng. His drug court has been a successful enterprise. I don’t want to say anything disrespectful.”

That’s the most cogent answer I got.

My ballot is going to be counted late. I made a mistake on my ballot that I had to cross out. (Nooooo! I'm an idiot that votes!) Anyway, add 1 to Bill's count.

the public neither wins or looses - this slot could have been done by coin toss - they were both top drawer candidates

oh, hey, Brendan, nice interviewing technique, I liked your laid back approach and how you asked people from all walks of life, instead of just the sound bite people. Good work!
