Tune in tomorrow/Monday am to KUOW for a bloggers hour from 10-11, as part of the regular Weekday program. You can listen via radio, live online, or via MP3 at the Weekday webpage after the fact.
The line-up, as moderated by Steve Scher, will include myself (taking time off of work to carry the conservative banner), our friend David Goldstein of Horse's Ass, Tom Forbes at Palousitics, and Liz Burlingame of SeattlePoliticore.
After the show Goldy and I will engage in a sumo match wearing those fake suits you're familiar with if you're a fan of The Office. Loser donates $100 to the other guy's candidate for governor.
Tune in anyway, though. Suggestions for pithy comments to be made on the air are welcome in the comments, as are your calls to the show!
UPDATE: second paragraph fixed.
UPDATE II: Ugh, annoying typo fixed.

In the third paragraph, it should be "if you're a fan of The Office" (which I'm not - but I am a fan of correct grammar!
Have fun tomorrow!
2. Eric has a real job, Goldstein does not. No wonder Goldstein is a Progressive.
How about throwing the blame for high gas prices on the democrats/liberals- ala lack of refinery, no threat of drilling in ANWAR and offshore drilling. Then go for the kill shot and ask why they are still pushing ethanol subsidies when it is being shown it is not working and then go for the double body slam by asking when all these alternative fuels are going to start supplying energy.
And sorry, can't countenance anyone who calls Goldenstein a friend. Despicable human being showing no compassion to the plight of other humans.
From this poster you can relate that Sir Dino has no chance because he's portraying a DREAM. [Dino Rossi's Eternal Aspiring Mantra], continual anti-Gregoire rhetoric instead of offering detailed objective remedies for this State. Where's the beef, Dino?
For Goldstein: When will Darcy Burner quit wasting our time running in the 8th? Is he ever going to get a real job? Who's car was that in his Ex-wifes driveway all weekend?
For Burlingame: Does she know who Ron Sims is now? (In one of her Crosscut pieces she named him as a City Councilman). Does it bother her to ride on the Governors bus and write sychophantic articles without asking any questions about controversial subjects? Is she still getting college credits from the UW co-taught by Postman and her professor? And does she think her grade would be impacted if she wrote negative stories about the existing Democratic power structure?
6. How about throwing the blame for high gas prices on the democrats/liberals- ala lack of refinery, no threat of drilling in ANWAR and offshore drilling
Maybe you should blame NIMBY's for lack of refinery's. I wouldn't want one near me. How much oil would ANWAR produce? Likely not enough to make a serious dent on gas prices. Maybe the oil companies in Alaska should check for leaks.
Didn't Gov. Schwarzenegger and Gov. Bush repudiate the President Bush for trying to drill off the coats of California and Florida? Hard to blame actions of Republican Governors on the Dem's, nice try though
7. If the Dems just threatened drilling in ANWAR, the price of oil would decrease. The mess we are in is because we never got started. But, Cato, my comments were what Eric should ask and talk about on the show. Yours were ....? Hijack time?
My impression of the show: A non-event.
Goldy obviously had the most 'on-air presence' with his ease and talk show host experience. [Sounded like host 'cringed' and lowered his voice whenever he had to idendify Goldy with 'Horsesass.Com'] Eric came across as a typical academic, very articulate and University-versed. The other blogger (from Whitman County) and lady who was a recent UW grad were almost indescernible. I would suggest KUOW invest more of their coffers in audio enhancement for phone-line guests. Bottom-line: I should have remained on the Dave Ross Show. :)
9. If the Dems just threatened drilling in ANWAR, the price of oil would decrease
If President Bush sneezed wrong the price of oil would jump. it's a price bubble that will eventually collapse like everything else does.
Even if we drilled in ANWAR it would not affect gas prices because they'd still need to set up all the equipment, drill holes, make a pipeline, and the amount of oil drilled would likely be negligible compared to what's likely sitting off the large coastlines of California and Florida. Let's not even talk about how much oil Iraq is sitting on.
Yours were ....?
A response to your loaded and ill informed question. You clearly just want to play the partisan blame game rather than use the real facts.
