Sign that says ALEC, A Legislator for Every Corporation
Goal ThermometerGood candidates don't do this:
Angel's spokesman said she wasn't giving any more media interviews between now and next month's election.
That's Jan Angel, the Republican running in the Washington Senate special election against Democrat Nathan Schlicher.

Schlicker is a smart kid—graduated from college at 18, has a law degree and is an emergency room doctor. Angel? The Washington ALEC co-chair has "gaps in her knowledge", which is a super nice way to say that she's your typical idiot Republican.

Now, Republicans are hiding her from the media, afraid of putting more of those knowledge gaps on full display this close to Election Day. Or maybe they need her spending 100 percent of time begging corporate polluters for more money? (Enviro issues are playing large in the campaign.)

Let's help our Washington friends keep this seat blue, just as we're helping our Virginia friends claw back seats in their House of Delegates. This is how we roll back conservatism from around the country: from the ground up.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
