    the way of "running" in 2010... by the time Baird announced his retirement it was nearly too late for anyone without the state Party apparatus behind them...

    and for whatever cockeyed reason, they choose Denny Heck and his 20something year old campaign slogan of "give congress heck" - which failed to elect him way back in the, what, late 80's or early 90s, and again in 2010.

    Pridemore staff said as much, that he simply didn't have time to garner enough dough for the race, what with the late start.

    I am surprised that he didn't have another go at it.

    I won't write my district off just yet, she's had plenty of lack of support from the local paper (the Columbian), and that to me was surprising, as they've been pretty rightwing since I was a kid.

    Anyway, with the economy and Occupy and the fucking crazy on the Right side of the presidential election, perhaps enough of the Republicans in WA State's 3rd CD will sit 2012 out... and turn our little corner of the world back to calm and steady blue.
