TNT: Shocked by editorial supporting senators

I had a super shocker early this morning – an incident that made me think we may be close to the end of the world as the Mayans predicted.

While reading the headline story about state senators Rodney Tom and Tim Sheldon, I decided to check out the editorial page for the editorial board’s take on this turn of events. It was at that point that I thought I might still be asleep and experiencing of some kind of strange “end of the world” dream!

The News Tribune editorial board was actually admitting that Democratic control of all three branches of government in Olympia had turned into a fiasco of sorts. It was actually applauding the efforts of two rogue Democrat senators for switching caucuses and giving Republicans a new advantage.

Whoa! Wait a minute here! Don’t you see the irony in this? Aren’t you the very same editorial board that recommended people vote Democrat in about 95 percent of the races in the last election? Didn’t you recommend Democratic candidates about 45 to one? Run for your lives, Tacomans! The end of the world must be coming!
