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.

I like to think that I'm a rarity in blogging, in that I'm a political nerd who doesn't have a partisan axe to grind in everything they write. I considered myself a Republican up until 2004 when I finally had enough of their bible-based politics, yet still harbour a deep dislike of the Democratic Party because of their ties to labour groups as well as their tendency to bloat budgets. Ideologically I'm somewhere between centrist and libertarian. On economics I fit neatly in the centre-right, while on social issues I can be fairly radical. And no, I'm not British. It's just that I can respect that they created our language and know how to write it properly.
