Speaking of semaphores
The local "election" yesterday
showed a turnaround of opinion. Current mayor Carpetbagger Copkiller Condon was termlimited, so his Sorosian buddy Stuckart ran as the incumbent party. Soros Stuckart was easily defeated by Nadine Woodward, a well-known TV newsreader. Woodward has always made it clear that she was closer to normal Spokane views than NYC views, and her clarity paid off this time. Another Sorosian Condon buddy ran for council president, and was also defeated by a well-known member of a big business family.
Nothing will change, but at least a signal
calling for change has been given.
(The election also included the standard load of several dozen Tim Eyman ZERO TAX referenda. All were approved statewide, none will make any difference.)
