Clueless Blue Donkey’s In Clark County

by lewwaters


I am always amazed at just how clueless and spiteful Democrats can be. Maybe because for the first half of my life, I was a Democrat, born and raised into a staunchly Democrat household in South Florida.

I’ve watched as they high jacked the Civil Rights movement they so strongly fought against and filibustered in the 1960’s and even how they coerce a Republican President into how necessary tax increases are only to use that tax increase they pushed for as a campaign gimmick against that same Republican President.

I guess it should have come as no surprise to see that same level of cluelessness coming out of the chair of the Clark County Democrat Party, Dena Horton into today’s Columbian.

While Ms. Horton may have a short leg to stand on in complaining about Ann Donnelly’s description of the Blue Jackasses convention (I wasn’t there so I don’t know), her other vitriolic ramblings are remarkably clueless.

Horton brays, “The Columbian is often accused of being a ‘liberal rag’ by the conservatives, which the Clark County Democrats find baffling when The Columbian continues to print columns by conservative columnist Ann Donnelly while offering no alternative view as a counterpoint.

I am left wondering just how many John Laird’s, Lou Brancaccio’s, Tom Koenninger’s and Kathie Durbin’s must the Columbian publish to equate one Ann Donnelly column every other week in Horton’s world?

Laird runs a weekly column that I have yet to see any pro-conservative stance ever taken. Brancaccio is more even handed, but definitely leans left. Koenninger leans further left and I doubt Kathie Durbin has a kind thought ever towards anything conservative. If so, I can never tell by her writing, especially as she trumped up a controversy last September, Podunk Reporter Creates Issue, Boasts of Resolution.

I saw no “counterpoint” printed in regards to that manufactured controversy and even just last week, John Laird copied it with his vitriol masked as humor, Confessions of a new Republican.

Dena has the audacity to actually state, “We have important elections coming up in 2010 and it does not serve The Columbian’s readership, the general public, or the integrity of the elections process to cause mass confusion about the process by printing inaccurate information.”

Does she really want to go there? Outright lies against President Bush and 8 years of vitriol and demeaning hatred thrown at the man by her party? Does she forget the fraud of the 2004 Washington State Governor’s election?

As far as that “important elections” goes, yes, we are watching Massachusetts very closely too and it isn’t looking all that good for their State jackasses back there right now.

Unbelievably, Horton cries, “Unfortunately, it seems as though not much has changed and our pleas for truth and fairness have fallen on deaf ears.”

Dena dear, you Democrats wouldn’t know “truth and fairness” if your donkey’s tail was bitten. We sat and watched as every sort of hatred and mean-spirited message was sent out against the GOP and President Bush.

We saw as you used the Troops and the very war your party voted to authorize as a campaign tool for political gain.

We watched as your party seized control of Congress with lies, innuendoes, subterfuge and dishonesty straight out of Saul Alinsky’s ‘Rules for Radicals.’

We watched as despicable conduct by a President from your party was excused, just to have you come back later and point fingers at others over similar “immoral” conduct.

I was at the Hilton the evening in November 2008 when a junior senator was propelled into the Presidency by playing the race card and one of your number placed the sign outside the ballroom, “The night America came together.”

None of you have yet to explain why America cannot “come together” unless a group of jackasses controls the country and continues to bankrupt us.

The whiny column written by Blue Donkeys Chair Dena Horton is indicative of spoiled little children who don’t always get their way and throws a tantrum.

If Clark GOP Chair, Ryan Hart, wrote such a column every time a leftist column appeared in the Columbian, he’d have to be on full time employ.

Americans are waking up to the ploy, Dena. I suggest you get used to not having “fair and balanced” being your point of view only!

As a famous Democrat once said, “If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.”

I guess that was back when Democrats cared about more than remaking America into a socialist mecca and carbon copy of the failed Soviet Union.

Congratulations Clark County Democrats

by lewwaters

repub-demFollowing suit behind the Republican party of Clark County, Washington, the local Democrat Party has announced they too will host the 2010 mid-term convention for their party here in Vancouver.

This can only be good for Clark County who remains the county with the highest unemployment within our Democrat Party dominated state.

Both conventions will be held in the Hilton Hotel in Vancouver in June 2010.

Clark County GOP Chairman Ryan Hart said at the June announcementof the GOP convention,

“We are thrilled. This is really big, not just for the local Republican Party, but for all of Clark County.”

Dena Horton, chairwoman of the Clark County Democratic Central Committee says of their announcement,

“We are proud and honored to host our fellow Washington state Democrats for the convention and look forward to organizing fun and exciting events to welcome them and show off our community.”

I congratulate both Ryan Hart and Dena Horton for their tireless work in bringing both conventions to economically repressed Clark County.

The conventions are scheduled for June 10 through 12 for the Republicans and June 25 and 26 for the Democrats.

The Clark County GOP has confirmed and announced conservative columnist Michelle Malkin and former governor of Massachusetts, Mitt Romney so far as speakers.

The Democrat Party has not yet announced who their speakers will be.

Both conventions are expected to bring around $1 Million each for local businesses and attendees of approximately 2,000 are expected of each.

Both won against stiff competition from other cities around Washington State.

The community owes a big vote of thanks to both Ryan hart and Dena Horton for their tireless efforts in securing two such events for our area.

Clark GOP to Dems, No You Don’t

Sunday, August 23, 2009. Clark County residents were treated to an unusual softball game today as the Clark County Democrats squared off against the Clark County Republicans in a charity softball game to benefit Share, a local charity.

About 100 spectators gathered at Memory Field to watch as politicians, candidates and party activists from both parties took to the field to battle in the game.

A sunny day, it was a good game for all to watch as young and aging players batted the ball, ran and dropped it too.

The Republicans took an early lead with a score of 16 to 9 mid-way.

The Democrats, showing some spunk fought back hard and tied the score going in to the ninth inning.

But, the Republicans pulled it off with a final run to best the Democrats with a score of 17 to 16.

There was no call for recounts.

It was hoped attendance would be better, but having what was there is nothing to complain about.

David Castillo, candidate against Brian Baird for the 3rd Congressional District and his campaign manager, William Lohr came down from Olympia to play in the game. It’s too bad that congressman Baird didn’t announce attendance as it was felt by many that his attending would have drawn even more spectators who would then donate to Share.

Perhaps Mr. Baird felt that a softball game benefiting charity is more dangerous than town halls.

Jon Russell, also challenging Baird was unable to attend as well.

Clark GOP Chair, Ryan Hart, initially approached Democrat Chair Dena Horton with the idea of a charity game to benefit a mutually chosen charity. He was somewhat surprised to hear that the Democrat Party was thinking of approaching the Republicans with a similar idea.

The Democrats had Senator Craig Pridemore, Representative Jim Jacks, County Commissioner Steve Stuart, City Council member Jeanne Harris, former candidate Pam Brokaw and party chair, Dena Horton, amongst others on their team.

Along with Castillo, for the Republicans, Senator Joe Zarelli, Representative Ed Orcutt, former candidate Tom Langston, County Assessor candidate Peter Van Nortwick, candidate for state Representative 17th District Brian Peck and Party Chair Ryan Hart added to the GOP line-up, along with PCO’s and party activists.

KPTV 12 out of Portland had one of their cameramen in attendance that conducted interviews with candidates and spectators.

There really was no loser in this game as Share was handed over $2800, raised by both parties.

In all it was enjoyable afternoon and an escape from the hardball politics usually played for some softball.

But in the end, the GOP changed the Democrats ‘Yes We Can” to a “No, You Don’t,” at least for the game.

Thanks to all who played and all who attended for a well disciplined game with no partisanship.

Good game, Democrats.
