So is Dino saying, "Fuck you" to those people [who supported Didier]? "Fuck you, I don’t need your votes? I can win with 33 percent"This was the second incident of F-bombing by the Didier campaign in the last few weeks. During the botched Didier-Akers joint webcast, staffers could be heard on-air referring to a "clusterfuck."
Rossi, of course, said no such thing. He is simply refusing to submit to a laundry list of demands that Didier says Rossi must meet before Didier will endorse him. Rossi understandably rejected those demands. Can you think of any other candidate that polled just 12% of the vote that successfully made any demands on a victorious candidate? This is not Czechoslovakia and Rossi isn't Neville Chamberlain.
And by the way Ms. Potty Mouth, Dino doesn't have just 33%:
The first KING 5 Senate poll for the 2010 general election shows Republican Dino Rossi is actually ahead of Democratic incumbent Patty Murray, 52% to 45%.Oops.
In most polls leading up to this week’s primary election and on primary night, Murray was in the lead. Primary election results placed Murray 13 points ahead of Rossi, but Rossi splitting the Republican vote with Clint Didier who got 12%, and Paul Akers, with 3%.
I agree with Caleb Hannan at the Daily Weekly. Rossi is better off ignoring Didier's demands. In any case, this cannot end well for Didier and his Super Bowl ring-sized ego. And if Rossi loses a very winnable election with the U.S. Senate at stake, Didier may want to consider growing alfalfa in Uzbekistan.
Finally, here's some advice to the Washington Campaign for Liberty, whose supporters campaigned so vociferously for Didier. I generally respect the membership of the C4L, who other than a few crazies, are very thoughtful and intelligent. They realize, no doubt, that they can only advance their causes by forming coalitions with other groups.
Didier's high school jock testosteroning, as echoed by cheerleader Jerkes, is making him radioactive. Take care you don't get contaminated yourself.
