Did I Say You Could Read This?
Wouldn't want you to leave on an empty mind...

According to this study: 

14% of voters are mentally handicapped. (I'll let you, kind reader, look at the poll and figure out why I think they must be mentally handicapped)

Yeah, I said it. Someone had to.

Holy Crap! Sony Makes Breakthrough! 

Apparently they've built the world's first television for men and women™.

It will be an amazing new world where I'll be able to sit down and watch the same television with my wife (instead of her having to watch tv in the bedroom on our "women's tv", while I watch football on my "H3 TV")! So happy this new frontier of inter-sex television watching has hit in my lifetime! My world may never be the same! (does this mean that I'll have to start allowing my Tivo to record Buffy the Vampire Slayer?)

Drunk! McGavick 

So we all know that Mike! was drunk once back in 1993 and blew a .17 after running a red light. New revelations came out today, once again proving what a drunk this man is:

"A Maryland police report obtained Thursday offers four pages of details that include McGavick's alleged failing of roadside sobriety tests, falling asleep during processing and registering a 0.17 blood alcohol level 90 minutes after being stopped."

So he must've been truly trashed if he managed to blow a .17 an hour and a half afterwards, but that isn't the biggest revelation - what frightened me the most was that he drove a Miata. Shouldn't that disqualify him for public office right off the bat? I mean seriously, a 200 pound man driving a Miata?!? That just ain't right.

Oh, and I found these on cafepress - they make me giggle, and will probably adorn the Willismobile between now and election night:

UPDATE: After actually reading the Everett Herald story that Postman was pointing to, I came across this gem:
When McGavick rolled the window down on his white Mazda Miata, a strong odor of alcohol greeted the officer, according to the report. McGavick told the officer he had "two, maybe three beers" during the previous five hours.

Ok, so now we know for a fact that (at least when he's drunk) Mike! is a big fat liar. No way do you put down "two, maybe three beers" over a 5 hour period, and still blow a .17 90 minutes later! I'm no blood alchohol content expert, but according to this website, if he had had 3 regular beers over three hours, the highest his BAC would've been would be .04. According to that Ohio State BAC calculator, Mike! would've had to have put down more than 8 drinks in a 3 hour period just to get to .18, and we all know that he must've been more drunk than that when he was pulled over - cuz he blew .17 an hour and a half later. So not only is he a stinking drunk, but he's a stinking liar to boot!

"Look at me! Look at me!?! Please.... 

....someone, pay attention to ME! I'm still relevant, right?"

As far as I can tell, that's what Tim Eyman's trying to say by getting involved campaigning against Seattle Mayor Greg Nickels' transportation transit measure, which will be on this fall's ballot.

First off, Tim Eyman is not a Seattle resident - he lives in Mukilteo. This tax will not affect him in any way, shape, or form. This is not the first time he has tried to change policies in jurisdictions not his own - he tried to get voters state-wide to nullify Sound Transit funding through I-776, but fortunately for us it was thrown out in court.

So now he's desperate to somehow keep the spotlight on himself - I-917 is facing a signature verification process, which will likely fail and leave no Eyman measures on the ballot this year (R-65, Eyman's "I'm not just against taxes, but also against gay people" referendum, failed miserably to even collect the signatures needed to overturn the gay civil rights act passed by last year's legislature).

Frankly, I agree with Seattle Deputy Mayor Tim Ceis who said ""I don't think people in Seattle want a watch dealer in Mukilteo telling them what to do... He comes out against things in order to make money. He's a mercenary and I don't think Seattle voters like ... him at all."

Eyman did allow one bit of truthiness to come out in the news story when he admitted that "It's a very smart electorate in Seattle...". Seattle voters are so smart, in fact, that they've rejected every single one of Eyman's hair-brained schemes (with the exception of the I-900 last year - the additional money/power for the State Auditor).

Personally, I wasn't sure what I thought of the Mayor's plan - the taxes are kind of wacky, and there's also the fact that there's no hard end date to the taxes - but now that Eyman's come out against it, the Mayor has my vote!

Seen at the Fremont Fair 

Like any good Seattle liberal, I went down and hung out at the Fremont Fair this past weekend.

I saw some really neat stuff, then I saw this:
In case you can't read it, the sign reads "HELP US Get SEATTLE CITY COUNCIL To Adopt IRAQ EXIT STRATEGY".

Now, I understand the want for an Iraq exit strategy - I think most of us can agree that we need to get out - but don't the fine members of SNOW (sponsoring this particular tent) realize that Seattle City Council has NO sway on how or when we get out of Iraq? Did the fine members of SNOW fail their high school civics class? Do the fine members of SNOW have nothing better to do with their time than waste it like this for an entire weekend?

They might as well lobby the Bellevue City Council to increase the age of consent in Alabama.

And now I have no question why people sometimes think us on the left are nuts...

More video of Westboro Baptist Church Lady 

Jeebus - she's so crazy that she makes Sean Hannity say sane things!

I love how she keeps her shit-eating grin while Sean calls her "as mean, as sick, and as cruel as anybody that I've ever had on this program". That's really saying something - cuz Hannnity's had some real sickos on in the past!

Wow. That's all I can say.... 

You neeeeeed to watch this video:

I never thought I'd see that kind of spine from a Fox News reporter! Is it just me, or does the Westboro Baptist lady look just a tad bit in-bred?

Metro Trip Planner CRAZINESS 

So, I was mapping out a route on Metro's Trip Planner (from North Aurora to 5th and Pike - arriving Downtown at 7:00am on a Saturday). Below is the third itinerary it suggested (the first two itineraries were very straight-forward and sensible - this last one, not so much - I posted the picture cuz it's just that unbelievable).

That's right - it wants me to leave 7 hours before I need to be Downtown in the middle of the night - go Downtown, catch a bus back to UW, then go back Downtown, and at the very end take a bus two blocks (after an hour layover) to finish off the trip. Phenomenal.
