  •  give it right back to 'em (4.00)
    I don't live in Washington, so I don't know if this is possible.  But is it feasible to find a big list of Republicans and challenge every single one of them?  

    It should be done publically, and with the expressed purpose of calling attention to the GOP's dirty tricks.  And it should be made clear:  whatever dirty tricks they pull will now be given back to them, ten-fold.  

    Bullies must get the shit beat out them. That's the only way they stop.  

    •  No. (4.00)
      The challenges have to be signed under penalty of perjury.

      With both this and the Libby indictment, I think we can now promote the theme that the Republicans are the Perjury Party

      Maybe GOP really stands for "Grungy Old Perjurers."

      •  Easier than that (none)
        The GOP is a criminal party willing to break any law to gain/retain power.  Criminals on both a local and national level.  What kind of so-called political party considers itself better off if less people vote?
      •  you're probably right (none)
        And I have no doubt that you're right about the law, about which I have shamefully little knowledge.

        But:  in addition to all the good ideas presented by posters here in this excellent diary (thank you, nwprogressive), I think Washington state Democrats need to band together for a public statement.  (It would be great if some national Dems joined in, too...)  

        And they have to make it clear that this criminal behavior won't fly anymore, and SPECIFICALLY in this case, we will not tolerate this criminal, anti-American behavior being rewarded.

        So Dems can PUBLICALLY offer a choice:  this must be prosecuted, immediately, before the election, before the Republicans can benefit from their crimes, and appropriate remedies made at the Washington GOP's expense.  

        Give a deadline:  tomorrow.  

        And if nothing happens, expect thousands and thousands of challenges to Republican voters, in response.  Because if the law means nothing, then it means nothing.  

        We need to guarantee the GOP -- local and national -- that we will expose their filthy, undemocratic ways wherever and whenever these goddamned lying rats scheme like this.   And where we don't get legal remedy, we will not only adopt their practices, but take them to a new level.  

        And will make clear every step of the way just why we're doing it:  because the Republicans have broken the system with their crimes, dirty tricks, perjury, and treason.

        So it's their choice:  they can cease their criminal endeavors, or be on the business end of them for a while.  They can choose to be beaten up badly with the club they've brought into this fight.

      •  How about... (none)
        Graft Obsessed Perjurers?
    •  Not feasible in Washington.... (none)
      We don't register by party. That's why a few Republicans also got challenged, no way to tell who is who or what is what. And I like it that way, makes it harder to target specific voters.

      Bush lied, people New Orleans.
