Re: “Smallish but rowdy crowd for Democrats” (TNT, 6-3).

Gubernatorial candidate Jay Inslee said he will protect Washington state from the “virus from Wisconsin” – a condescending and derogatory term he used to describe the efforts of Wisconsin citizens to bring their state spending under control.

Just how does Inslee propose to protect us from this so-called “virus”? By pandering to the state employee unions at the expense of other citizens in the state?
