The Moderate Washingtonian

Outlook on politics and elections in the state of Washington from an overall centrist viewpoint. My views tend to be libertarian in nature, but at the same time are largely nonpartisan.

New Rosencrantz ad riles opponents

Last Friday, the Seattle Times reported on the reactions of Seattle City Council candidates Dwight Pelz and Richard McIver towards Robert Rosencrantz's creative campaign ad homaging Bob Dylan's famous video for "Subterranean Homesick Blues." Both are bellyaching that the ad unfairly attacks them, most likely because they're both too bland, too patrician, and certainly too politician to come up with something as witty and inventive as Rosencrantz. Plus, after the Times researched the claims covered in the ad spot, they proved that they were true! No wonder Pelz and McIver are calling it "dirty campaigning," since truth runs contrary to career machine politicians like them. This is another example of Rosencrantz's creativity noted on this page, and i'd urge everybody to go to his website and click the "See the New TV Spot!" link to watch it.

Rosencrantz is so different than all the other Seattle City Council members. He will be a breath of fresh air. As with former Chief Justice of the Sumpreme Court, the changes start with one member.

Good luck Robert!

Agreed. Much like with Bob Ferguson, Rosencrantz is an independent-minded Democrat who knows how to be fiscally-responsible and when to break with the party. I still have a hard time seeing him win, but I wish him luck.
