State voters displayed a puzzling inconsistency
I never cease to be amazed by the state of Washington.
How can the same voters who shrewdly recognized Initiative 1098 as a cynical attempt to impose a state income tax then turn around and also re-elect Patty Murray, whose support for every conceivable tax-and-spend program is unrivaled in Congress?
How can an electorate that once again felt the need to encumber its representatives with a ballot measure requiring a two-thirds vote to raise taxes by and large re-elect the same group of worthless scoundrels who overturned a previous state law that imposed the very same restrictions?
Is it possible to test voters for schizophrenia before mailing them a ballot?
