    The strangest thing happened to me last night. I went out for dinner and a few drinks with some friends at the Mall here in Redmond. First, there was no place to park, we just thought there was a concert going on or some event. The crossroads that go through the Mall were all blocked off with heavy trucks, cement trucks and there were police cars from all over King County. We finally found a place to park and walked to the Restaurant. After dinner and several drinks we decided to go catch a movie. The theatre is at the center of the Mall. When we got there, we found several hundred people and police standing around the entrance to the Hotel across the street. Many people had Kerry/Edwards signs. Then there were the authorities, police and suit wearing dudes with earpieces everywhere. I went out over to one of the cops and asked what’s going on? We said they weren’t allowed to say. Then we noticed snipers up on the roof of the hotel. I finally asked some of the folks standing around, and they all said Dubya was here!
    So it was, Dubya, indeed. I didn’t even know Dubya was in Seattle. But here he was, bringing shame to my town by spending the night here. There was a very sickly feeling in the air. Protestors started accumulating around the perimeter with all kinds of nasty signs. Impeach Bush! Murderer! Lot’s of people wearing “W” stickers with the “W” crossed out. One young lady sat cross legged in front of the hotel with lit candles and quarts of oil spilled around her to give the effect of blood running on the street. I think she was determined to stake out the hotel in hopes that Dubya might catch a glipse of her protest. Come to find out, all this was just because Dubya was going to walk into the hotel, nothing more. My three friends and I waited for Dubya to come. One of them loves Dubya and wanted to see him. And I wanted to see him too. Finally the motorcade came around the corner. Police bikes, police cars, lights flashing Blazer after Blazer, the line in the motorcade kept going and going and a big black flagged Limo passed by and Dubya that little chicken went through the back door of the hotel. There couldn’t have been more then a couple hundred people there to boo him and several hundred more just curious to see him and he couldn’t even come through the front door.
    So Dubya blighted my town by spending the night here last night. Why did he have to stay in Redmond? He stayed at the hotel Gates uses for interviewees. Was he interviewing for a job at Microsoft? No, he wouldn’t have a chance. No, I realized he couldn’t stay in Seattle, because if he stayed downtown, people would find out and the Hotel would be mobbed by thousands of angry protestors. Dubya is violently hated in Seattle. So he stayed in Redmond. Even Redmond though is very multicultural, well educated and definitely Kerry territory. Then it dawned on me why this guy doesn’t travel often out of his home states. He is such a polarizing figure, everywhere he goes brings thousands of angry people to him. When we drove home that night, there were protestors all along the main street. I took some comfort in knowing that while here Dubya didn’t get to appreciate the beauty of this place, he had to see all the people with signs calling him a murderer and a traitor and a corporate puppet.

    I am just thankful that when they passed out brains, I was in line in front of you for a double dose.

    I don't like Dubya slithering out of the South, especially not to my home town. This place stands in stark contrast to the polluted wasteland that sprouted Dubya. He can stay down in Texas where they are appropriately brainwashed to love him. But if he comes up here, he has to face people who know what he really is. That's why he rarely ventures up to these parts. Washington will go to Kerry anyways, I don't see why he needs to dishonor us with his presence here. Its a harsh political reality, but that's the way it is.

    She polluted mother earth and you did nothing to stop it! No wonder why we need so much oil and the earth is polluted. It is people like you and your politcal allies destroying the planet to get attention!

    I hope next time I'm driving my Hugh SUV I don't slip on the oil.

    Actually we are very mature up here. There is talk in the local weeklies about what to do if Dubya wins a second term. People think that if Dubya wins fair and square, we will have to accept it with dignity and live with it for four more years. The scary question people have been raising is what do we do if they steal the Presidency. Many people honestly believe if the election isn't going well for Bush, & Co, they will find another way to hold onto power.
    I read an interesting article about the West Coast practicing pseudo-secessionism until Bush is gone. Some people have even asked what the obligation of the Military is in such a situation. Basically, how do we go about forceably removing him from power if the need arises. These are the kinds of debates that are going on outside of Bush Territory. Scary isn't it? Scary what this guy means for many of us.

    It would take a hell of a lot more than some retarded woman spilling oil on a street to scare me. It would also take a lot more than the threat of losing a state to scare me too. The only thing the state of Washington ever contributed to our union is grunge music. Thankfully, that too is just a memory.

    Oh, wait. Starbucks. Caffeine. Now I know why ya'll are so irrational...too much caffeine.

    Smirkin' evidently you just caught the tail end of Bush's trip to WA.

    http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2002005265_bushvisit14m.html

    You say that you liberals are "very mature" in Seattle. Here is an example of the liberal "maturity" in Seattle: http://www.stopbushseattle.com/

    Just in case you didn't know it Smirkin', Washington State is a swing state. Seattle itself is very liberal but the rest of the state is conservative. Republicans have been gaining ground and there is hope that WA will swing for Bush this time around.
