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.

Washington Government -- the movie

A friend in Seattle showed me this website today, which has a fun thing where you can upload a photo and it matches the person in the photo to a huge database of celebrities from many different occupations based on looks, facial structure, and stuff like that. It isn't foolproof, but there is something to it -- upon uploading a handful of celebrity photos from my hard drive, it matched Tony Blair and Vicente Fox with the #1 pick, and Sean Connery with the #2 pick -- and that gave me the idea to nerd it up and present the cast for a fake film about our state and local political figures. The best match: Graham Chapman as Patty Murray. No bullshit. State Sen. Mark Doumit was also pretty accurate.
