Washington State Lieutenant Governor

Only five candidates this time:

  • Brad Owen (Prefers Democratic Party): No website. You suck. And you are the incumbent. Therefore you suck more. How can you be the incumbent Lieutenant Governor and not have a campaign website? Have I mentioned that you suck? “As president of Strategies of Youth, he travels throughout the state with his musical, multi media program to deliver positive messages about substance abuse and bullying awareness to youth.” Really? You’re actually in office, and the kind of thing you can come up with? WTF? And he has been Lieutenant Governor for 11 years? Wow.
  • Marcia McCraw (Prefers Republican Party): She wants to increase volunteerism and transparency in government. OK stuff I guess.
  • Arlene Peck (Prefers Constitution Party): “All decisions made while in office will be based on these documents and Biblically prescribed moral values designed to protect the fabric of our society. Though some may bristle at the thought of bringing together Christian belief and affairs of civil government, I firmly believe, as did the Rev. Charles G. Finney, that ‘God will bless or curse this nation (and our state) according to the course Christians take in politics.'” Next…
  • Jim Wiest (Prefers G.O.P. Party): His website is broken. “Warning! The specified site was not found”. And this is apparently the guy who was the Republican candidate in 2004. He says this election he is the only candidate with a plan to end homelessness. But there is no additional information. (Maybe there would be if his website wasn’t broken, but…) He says he got 1.1 million votes in 2004, so it seems he actually isn’t one of the stupid fringe candidates, but that seems hard to believe.
  • Randel Bell (Supports Democratic Party): He submitted no information at all for the ballot. No picture. No statement. No URL for a website. Nothing. Absolute total fail.

All five of these people seem to suck beyond belief. I can’t bring myself to pick any of them. Therefore, I’m going to do a write-in vote.

My vote:

Samuel Minter
