The Washington State Democrat Party has a [potential] prize for all those who “chip in $5” and become a 2015 party member by the March 31 deadline. It’s a chance to see Minnesota Senator Al Franken and Senator Patty Murray together on April 9th in Seattle.
We’re not sure why “seeing” two Democrats who follow their party line like a pair of sheep is a prize. But, considering the shortage of interesting Democrat players out there, it’s no wonder Franken and Murray are considered “prizes”—sad as that reality is for Democrats.
Apparently, Senator Franken will be the keynote speaker at Murray’s annual event, the Golden Tennis Shoe Awards. The WA Democrats are attempting to use his presence in Seattle to benefit its 2015 membership drive. The party’s email to subscribers reads,
“By becoming a member, you’ll not only get special opportunities like this one — You’ll also be part of a team fighting to create a Washington that works for everyone.”
Of course, by “works for everyone,” Democrats really mean, “works for special interests.” After all, as Shift recently reported, state Democrat party leader Jay Inslee vetoed his own agency-sponsored legislation due to pressure from big labor last year. Inslee’s actions made it quite clear who is truly running Olympia – it’s his million-dollar campaign donors.
