    I grew up in Washington and lived there most of my life, up until a few years ago. The Republicans have become far more polarizing than they used to be, starting around - guess who - Ronnie Raygun's time. I think Dixy Lee Ray really started the race to the bottom for the state.

    Dan Evans was the last R governor who had the respect of everyone, enough so that he had three terms ('65 to '77). No one since has lasted as long or commanded the respect that he did. Of course, he would never make it in the party now, and wouldn't last past a primary were he just getting started.

    McKenna is a twit of the highest order, but he still can't compare to the Republicans here in Arizona. Unfortunately, you all know what they're like, so I don't need to repeat anything - sigh.
