Democrats Admit McKenna Is Who He Says He Is
As I mentioned in a previous post, there's some Democrats out there attacking McKenna, saying he is "not who he says he is." In the first two ads, they just told a bunch of lies about him.
But they've given up on that line: in their latest ad (I saw it tonight, and can't find it online yet) they start out like the rest, saying "he says he's a moderate, but the national Republican agenda would [insert boring lies about a so-called 'war on women']." But, of course, even if it were true, it wouldn't apply to McKenna.
Maybe that's their game here: they hope ignorant voters on the left will believe the lie that a. those things are true and b. McKenna is somehow tied to them, while hoping informed voters on the right will say "actually, he *is* moderate, and I don't like that, so I won't vote for him!"
If so, maybe they're actually clever. But it's still lies, and they are still admitting they are lying, which makes them horrible people.

"...ignorant voters on the left..."
I'm sure the usual suspects over at HA would have something to say about that! They don't think so highly of you righties either!
2. Shrug. I never said leftists are ignorant; I said the only voters on the left (and in the middle, too) who could be swayed against McKenna by this ad, are ignorant ones, because the criticisms in the ad have nothing to do with McKenna. That's just a fact.
I agree. He is who he says he is. Which is all the reason I need to not vote for either of these clowns, because who he says he is is Inslee-light... and there's no need to vote for the fake democrat when you can vote for the real deal.
With little to no difference between them on the issues that matter... and that same King County GOP incompetence... The 4 votes in this house will be sitting this one out.
And that's too bad. If only a Republican were running for governor in this state...
4. Hinton, your valid disagreement with McKenna on the issues is no reason to lie about him not being a Republican.
