No presidential primary ballot, time to caucus

February 7, 2012

Washingtonians will not be able to take part in the Presidential Primary frenzy this spring because of a 2011 legislative decision to axe the annual rite to save a purported $10 million in the state budget.

Let me write this…very…slowly…for…you…Punxsutawney Phil has absolutely no credibility—shadow or no shadow. It’s kind of like the Three Stooges (maybe four) who are running for the Republican nomination for President.
