If the preachers are correct they can expect their hurricane at any moment.

Was there threat of a ban on bicycling or something?

Seattle is doomed now.  Soon, all the High Achievers will leave that crumbling communist craphole for the lower taxes and friendly business environment of Topeka.

Is this the Comcast candidate?

Poor Seattle.

So do we call discrimination now because they didn't elect the stright guy? Or would that be homophobic to say that.

That's what you think.  Because with our new gay mayor, we will turn all of the job creators in the city gay, and then we will keep them with 5 days of beefcake night at the Pony and publicly funded window treatment clinics.

We had a similar situation in Bellingham last year. With Washington's top two primaries, if there aren't enough Republicans you get two Democrats running against each other. I can't even remember anymore what made me vote for the winning Democrat over the losing Democrat.

Now the new guy will have to worry about the emergence of a candidate who's all that plus a deaf, wheelchair bound, illegal alien female.

We didn't really need double bike lanes downtown, McGinn.

And wtf have you done to Bell Street?

Actually, the only reason they voted out the first guy is because he was an asshole.

I'd actually seen it up here previously, including that despite being a member of the Sierra Club, he's pushed for some seriously environmentally damaging things, they just don't want to kick him out.

I like Ed Murray well enough. He's been a reasonably effective legislator, and of course he earned most of the credit for making marriage equality happen here in Seattle. He's a legislator at heart, though, born to compromise and to "reach across the aisle," which is exactly how we got to where we are today. Seattle needs a mayor who will tirelessly remind the rest of the state that we run the show. McMumbles, for all his faults, treated the rest of the state with the contempt it deserves.

Oh, you understand all right, you just don't like it, because you think your hatred should be OK.

okay. What rights should gays have that non-gays don't? also What rights should non-gays have that gays don't?

Yes, Renton, Everett, Bellingham and the Waste.

Just out of curiosity, why did you distinguish between Renton and the Waste?

None and none. Everyone is equal. That includes marrying whoever you want, and not being fired because your employer doesn't like your sexual preference.

You're right - that's not fair.

Some of that contempt should be reserved for the City Council.

Considering the speed Seattle's freeways tend to move at during rush hour, I wouldn't be surprised if drivers wanted to ban bikes out of jealousy.

AFAIK, Murray waffled when asked if he supported the $15 dollar minimum wage, saying that he supported raising the minimum wage but not going so far as to assent to that specific value.
