Rossi’s Buddies

posted by on June 19 at 12:56 PM

Speaking of Dino Rossi: The Republican gubernatorial candidate is the speaker of honor at the Building Industry Association of Washington’s annual luncheon in Stevenson, Washington, today—an engagement that isn’t reflected on his public schedule. Guess he doesn’t want to be associated with a group that called his opponent a “power-hungry she-wolf who would eat her own young to get ahead.” But he’s happy to help them raise money.

Follow the money.

All of it.

The BIAW is a big plus for Rossi. The organizations that are going to kill him electorally are the religious kooks, not the businessy types. Voters like businessy types.

Pictures like that just remind me of the beautiful hair that Rossi went and buzzed off. Why did he cut it? Why, Rossi? Why?

Because he had lice, elenchos.

Check out the BIAW website, they are far right pit bulls.

Currently they are running anti-Gov Chris Gregoire ads under the Obama-like front name, ChangePAC to the tune of $300,000 so far.

Rossi must be judged by the company he keeps and the money he takes. This is a clear indication of how conservative Dino Rossi really is. He will try not to talk about his anti-gay, anti-abortion history. He will pose in carefully staged public events where he controls the dialogue. The Republican playbook these days does not allow for any event where they lose control of the message.

So it is up to the media to do a far better job of asking the tough questions of Trojan Horse Dino Rossi. The last time he ran they largely gave him a free pass, even the Stranger.
