Those nutty Republicans. In a related survey, 82% of left-tilting bloggers believe that CO2 is a pollutant, 98% believe that Social Security is not bankrupt, and 100% believe that they are smarter than everyone else. Just ask them!
I sincerely hope this is not a harbinger of infighting and factionalizing within the GOP. The stakes are too high for us to be sabotaging good candidates simply because they aren´t YOUR good candidate. Here´s what I know about Mike Baumgartner: 1) He´s a genuinely nice guy. 2) He is enthusiastic about the task ahead. 3) He´s an Eastern Washington guy, from the halls of G-Prep to the libraries of WSU. 4) He knows a thing or two about implementing economic policy that actually WORKS. His experience, in helping to set economic policy in a Third World country emerging from the shackles of a dictatorship, is what we need, because based on the unemployment numbers and shuttered businesses in Spokane, we might just be the Third World economy that needs saving.
I´d vote for a ham sandwich before I´d vote to reelect Chris Marr. Thankfully, no one will have to write in "Ham Sandwich." There IS a great candidate who has stepped up, and his name is Mike Baumgartner.
