Update: Eyman’s “Invisible Schrammie” sells for 1,100 very visible bucks

Is is a long story that is recited in this earlier Poli Buzz post.

Let’s just say that when Tim Eyman received his second Schrammie from KOMO commentator Ken Schram he was hoping to sell it for as much as he sold his first Schrammie. But Schram, not wanting to give Eyman something of value that could be used to fund his initiative campaigns, didn’t send one of the bobblehead dolls symbolic of the anti-award.

So Eyman decided to auction off the non-existent doll. Thus was born the Invisible Schrammie. And the winner is…West Seattle’s Jim Coombes who bid $1,100. That’s a c-note more than the $1,000 the actual bobblehead went for in that earlier auction.

    Proof again that ‘a sucker is born every minute’….Tim Eyman has them lined up with their ink pens, checkbooks, and fat cat bank accounts.

    It’s sad but true, but there’s no end in sight to the antics from this idiot and his ilk or the moronic ideas they profess until fools like Jim Coombes waste all their money on political schysters (who don’t really give a sh#t) and evangelical preachers on cable tv.

    Eyman is so self center and egotistical that even Rush Limbaugh would have to fire down half a dozen oxycotin with a couple of vodka chasers after five minutes with this bozo. Maybe the good reverend Ted Haggard will be able to help.
