Another Brick Through Irons' Window

Intrepid blogger David "Goldy" Goldstein continues his pleasing habit of piling on David Irons, who clearly not only has an anger management problem, but a basic problem with telling the truth about his rather pathetic career history.  In this most recent installment, Goldy puts Irons' claim of "25 years of executive experience" under the microscope and finds that it's more like 2.5 years, and padded with daddy's money.

This isn't the kind of leadership our county needs. 

The good news is that Goldy's efforts to connect the dots that the mainstream media can't or won't bother to is having an effect.  As Darryl at Hominid Views reports, one week ago, the race was statistically tied. Now, according to King 5, Ron Sims is ahead 48-41, which is just outside the margin of error.  And that doesn't even take into account Goldy's latest bombshell.

The same King5 poll shows that Green Party Candidate Gentry Lange is polling 8 points.  Given how close this race still is, and how volatile the final days of an election can be, the right thing for him to do right now would be to drop out and throw his support to Sims, perhaps in return for a specific policy concession or two.  The last thing King County needs is its own mini Ralph Nader.

Greens voting against Sims, while that is their right, should it put "Iron Fist" Dave in office, would be neglecting Sims strong environmental record.
