  •  I have sent money to Darcy (4+ / 0-)

    every time she has run and the first two times were heartbreakers.  As they say, maybe "third time's the charm."  I certainly hope so!  We need her in Congress.  We need her in WA to buck up our other Democrats and we need her kind of frank progressivism to challenge the conservative populism that dominates the 1st CD in WA.  Please listen to teacherken's request.  Darcy is the hard punching, razor sharp progressive we desperately need in Congress.  I'd personally love to see Alan Grayson and Darcy in Congress.  I suspect some of those old Republicans might just die of apoplexy!  So how much would you pay to see that happen?  Send it to Darcy, now.

    America needs a UNION NEWS channel. We (unions) have the money, we have the talent. Don't buy 30 second time slots on corporate media, union leaders; fund your own cable news channel and tell the real story 24/7/365

      AKA "Cathy McMorris Rogers - - What can I do to move the crazy further right, Land" who would love to see Darcy as part of our Congressional Delegation.

      CD-1 is Eastern WA - once solidly Democratic (Tom Foley) and is an elegant example of the diminution of unions.  Once a logging, mining, manufactoring hub, it is now the wealthy urban areas that vote Dem and lose to that set of former union, good pay, paid leave, pension. . . etc that now continually votes against itself.

      We need Darcy to balance the rest of the state out.

      "How can the United States be the Greatest Nation ever if it is the only modern nation where citizens hold bake sales to pay for life saving medical care?" Single payer is coming but how many people will die before it becomes the only solution?

        when I lived in Spokane in the mid 80s.  A really decent man, and a good Speaker of the House, replaced by a right wing nutter who never amounted to much.  Never could believe that  Spokane would throw away such an important position and decent guy for, well, what?  I felt the same way when Idaho replaced Church with, can't even remember who the Senators for Idaho are now.  If we don't get dark money out of politics we'll never get decent folks like Foley and Church and Darcy, and if we don't get Darcy in we'll never get dark money out.  Hell of a conundrum we're in.
