Hey SP,

How's the WA State Governor's race going. I understand it's close.

Surely the state won't go Tea-Bag.


Looks like the teabagger candidate is going to concede.

I gotta say, the WA Republicans craziest candidates for governor imaginable. Just going back a few years, they ran a nutball who wanted to charge tuition to public schools and abolish the department of transpiration, a talk show radio host, a slimy real estate agent (twice!), and a teabagger who also happens to be the attorney general who has an intense hatred of gays and sued the federal government over health care reform. He lost.

To his credit, I've heard several interviews with the teabagger in question. I think he's a formidable lawyer, and I think he won the debates against his Democratic challenger. But while he is not nearly as crazy as previous Republican candidates, he is still an apologetic teabagger. If the Republicans ever decided to run a non-radical/non-crazy they'd have the thing sewn up.
