    Why does Tacoma like Norm Dicks so much?

    Hope you enjoyed it, Sarah, 'cause we just kicked your silly winking folksy lipsticked ass back to Alaska. For good. Also.

      You got Ft. Lewis, McChord AFB, the Puget Sound Naval Shipyards and I do believe the Bangor Sub Base is in his district. Norm is a closted Republican who likes free trade because you are not going outsource the C-17, Strykers, or Aircraft carriers. The 6th district is the military industrial complex personified, and anyone who campaigns as a peace activist might as well campaign in Omak, you would get the same result.

    •  he's been there forever (0+ / 0-)

      graduated from tacoma's own UPS back in the day, brings back pork for the district, and as stagger lee says above, he is a good fit for the MIC + free trade economy of mcchord AFB, ft. lewis, bremerton and the port of tacoma.

      it might be possible to primary him if there was enough of an organized antiwar or anti-free trade union base from tacoma, but right now i don't know that such a thing exists, or if it would be sufficient to balance all the military votes.
