Just when I thought the political season couldn’t get any stranger, I see this. You can click here to see the whole story in the Seattle Times. But here are what I see as the primary points.
- Dino Rossi, the Republican candidate for governor in the state of Washington, has his party affiliation listed as “GOP Party” on the ballot instead of “Republican”.
- State Democrats are suing Rossi, in order to make him put “Republican” after his name on the ballot instead of “GOP Party”.
- State Republicans, while calling the lawsuit “frivolous”, say they will step in and help Rossi in his efforts to not identify himself as a Republican.
Aw, you GOT to be pulling my leg, right? This cannot POSSIBLY be true.
UPDATE: "GOP Party"? As in, Grand Old Party... Party? This HAS to be a joke.
