Quote of the Day

He still hasn’t gotten over 2000.
- State Senator Mark Schoesler (R- Ritzville) on State Senator Eric Oemig (D- Kirkland). Oemig proposed awarding Washington's 11 Electoral College votes to the winner of the popular vote nationwide, versus the winner of the popular vote statewide. The proposal passed in the Senate and is on the way to the House for a vote.

Now that bill is Grade "A" B.S. It is like going out with friends and one of them says, "whatever you guys want is fine with me." I will not allow Washington to become "whatever you guys want" state with my electoral votes.
Sounds like the 'Rats are fearing a conservative backlash here in Washington.
