There is a funny side of this. The editors of the paper where he wrote that article, had this to say about supresser's madness:
Editor's note: Mr. Esser's opinions do not necessarily reflect those tof the editors and staff of the Daily. In fact, they don't even come close.

I suggest that precinct walkers in Washington state pass this out door to door and arouse the righteous anger of every "shiftless deadbeat" to vote these bigoted hatemongers out of office.
If I were there, I would organize a march to the polls by Democrats with signs proclaiming "The only shiftless deadbeat is running the GOP!"

God...this is the kind of guy that gives Republicans such a bad name, as if Bush hadn't done enough to it. When the hell are they going to realize that by rigging elections and ignoring their members, trying to run from the top down as a dictatorship is the whole reason Democrats are coming out with far superior numbers?
They are telling the people in their party that we don't matter, and then they expect us to rally behind whoever they choose. NOT THIS TIME. Most of us Ron Paul people will make sure that they lose the general election after how we've been treated. The Republican party needs to be destroyed and reubuilt from the base up.

Wow. Keeping leftist loudmouths and shiftless deadbeats away from the polls ... is that part of his job description? Will he put that on his resume under "Professional Accomplishments" or "Career Goals?"
Me thinks he's been taking Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly's style too seriously.
I had always thought that our current Repub president was a shiftless deadbeat...

Sadly,Democrats have their quota of people of the same persuasion of Mr. Esser. Most of them are smart enough not to be a walking billboard for their viewpoint. They prefer to do their dirty work in the shadows.
These Democrats have also been taken to school by the Bush neocon crowd who have shown them that this approach can be very successful and profitable if handled correctly. I am sure that there are prominent insiders amongst the Democrats who are eager to begin practicing their new found skills at the earliest opportunity.

What's the big deal?
Is Mike Huckabee going to pull a miracle win out of nowhere and get the GOP nomination?
If he won't... why does it matter?

I respect your take and think it is accurate in large measure. But this guy would give anyone a bad name.
It is not democrats that are coming out in record numbers ... no ... I think the people who are voting in record numbers "on the dem side" are independents and switch-over republicans as well as others.
The democrats cannot take credit alone for these double and triple turnout numbers. Only the voters themselves deserve the accolades.
This is a REJECTION election and vote.
If the candidates and pundits think it is about them, they will be making mistake after mistake, wrong prediction after wrong prediction.
NO. It is not about them.
It is about the wrath of the people ... whether democrat, independent, republican, or other, who have a mind and heart of their own to express.
It is the people who are rejecting the establishment status quo Amurkan madness.
Can we say RADICAL? This election cycle is a radical departure. Only those paralyzed with fear, which this time hits republicans hardest, are staying with the status quo neoCon agenda.
It is RADICAL that Barack is seemingly kicking ass. And radical in these premises is very, very good!!!
But the truth is that he is just more out of the way of the people's wrath than the others are, and that makes him more one of the people than the others in that sense.
He doesn't like slaughtering nations, taking American money and wasting it slaughtering nations, or hatred of the Esser type.
VOTE RADICAL!!!! The machines can't handle it!!!!

That is bullshit without at least an example.
I have a thousand points of darkness in the preznit blush regime as evidence, and you must first point out an equal number of democrats currently in power before we compare notes.

The "it" you are referring to is decent, honest, fair, reputable, humane, kind, american, behavior and thinking.
It matters and if you need that to be explained, all I can say is that you are Esserteric.
Somehow, I suspect that you are being sarcastic, which is fine and I get your drift.
Huck deserves all the votes that people cast for him. And each and every voter must have their vote count and apply to the candidate of their choice.
Dorks like Esser have absolutely zero say in this matter. He negated what the troops claim they are fighting to preserve.

Kay in Maine aka WhiteNoiseInsanity is no friend to Barack Obama.
On her blog on January 24 she called him "republican-lite."
"(Hillary, Obama, Edwards) are nothing but republican-lite."
On January 26 she called Obama a "warmonger."
"...warmongers such as Stallone, McCrazy, Edwards, Hillary, Romney, George Bush, Dick Cheney, Paul Wolfowitz, Obama, Guiliani, and others who keep wars going and continue to fund them even though they know the “war” is now an illegal occupation of a sovereign nation?"
It is quite possible she will remove the above posts because of her unflattering assessment of Obama, but the proof and original postings have been documented here: "http://whitenoiseinsanitywatch.blogspot.com/2008/02/kkkay-calls-barack-obama-warmonger-and.html"/
Make no mistake, Kay is no friend to any Obama supporter or anyone else, for that matter.

Yes, Brad, in that Seattle Times article you linked, it shows the Republicans ran headlong into something they couldn't handle when they challenged the 2004 election of Democratic Gov. Christine Gregoire: They ran into "The Rule of Law." And the rule of law says the challenger has to prove to the satisfaction of the court that the official election result is wrong and should be nullified by the court, which I suspect Esser is still bitter about.
That article, and one in the Seattle Post Intelligencer, http://seattlepi.nwsourc...7307_judgerules06ww.html , show the Republicans complained about illegal voting, deficiencies in "ballot security," "irregularities," and "errors and mismanagement by election workers and their supervisors."
But the judge "said Republicans did not meet the burden of proof for nullifying an election."
The judge said, yes, "there was evidence of irregularities, 'as there appears to be in every election,' but there was " 'not clear and convincing evidence that improper conduct or irregularities procured Ms. Gregoire's election to the office of governor.' "
The judge said, yes, there were "errors and mismanagement by election workers and their supervisors" but " there is no evidence that the significant errors that occurred resulted from intentional misconduct or someone's desire to manipulate the election." The judge said, "This court is not in a position to fix the deficiencies in the elections process that we heard about in the courtroom," he said.
Yes, the judge "did accept the claim that some people voted illegally in the election, but said their was little proof of which candidate benefited from those votes," so he did not nullify the election.
" 'There is no evidence before the court to question ballot security as to those ballots actually counted," Bridges said, knocking down another Republican claim about King County."
"The judge repeated the fact that there was no official fraud claim in the case, but then said that in any case, he saw no evidence of fraud."
The Republicans, of course, were not happy with the judge's ruling, saying, "We believe he has established a bar so high, it's virtually impossible to contest an election in this state." Yes, the Republicans learned it is very high bar you must clear to nullify an election.

Yeah I hear you. Like what neoCon Specter is saying in the Senate as we blog this very moment ...
He wants the preznit blush regime, Muckassy at the lead, to be substituted for the telecoms in the 40 some odd pending lawsuits, instead of them defending their own crimes.
It is a "compromise" they say. It is bullshit I say.
When I tap your phone and invade your privacy that is not the government doing it. I should have to pay to defend, not the taxpayers.
These fascists want US to pay for the fascist NAZI activity of the criminals who can afford their own lawyers.
Amurka is one sicko MFer bro.

#16 I like kayinmaine and have felt the same way that she did about warmongers. There have been some things that have come out. Like Obama voted to ban cluster bombs. Clinton wanted to keep them. She was for the Iraq war and Obama was against it. In the run up the black community were the most outspoken opponents. When you change your mind..it shows you are still using it.

The issue(s) relating back to Bush v. Gore (2000) still remain unsettled. Voters have no rights to elect the President of the United States (POTUS).
Attorney Gary Michael Coutin is filing a lawsuit to address this matter by challenging the constitutionality of the Electoral College. One "man", one vote doesn't apply to the POTUS election.
Who ever voted for an Elector? California has 55. Nobody I talked to could name one.
Until we abolish the Electoral College, history will most certainly repeat itself. Don't buy into this delegate and "super delegate" BS. Take back the power we deserve.

"Don't buy into this delegate 'super delegate' BS."
Absolutely right. I never knew of this super delegate stuff until today and it's just wrong. Under that system, it doesn't matter if either Hillary or Barack got the majority Dem votes because the superdelegates, chosen by the party, not by you and me, can select whoever they want at the nominating convention. "Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama will need 2,025 delegates to win the Democratic nomination. That means the 796 super delegates make up nearly 40 percent of the number of votes needed to wrap up the nomination. Republicans do not have super delegates."
Why did I even vote if my vote is counted and then ignored by the super delegates and the Democratic Party?
What is a super delegate? see here:

I like Obama now. Get over it! LOL And guess what? My vote for him in Maine yesterday counted. How about your vote in your caucus? Oh that's right! You're just like the Romney boys who are saving the world by riding around in a tour bus and blogging!

wow, is this a new definition for Deadbeat? I'm used to hearing Fathers that are stripped of their children when they are convicted of divorce being called deadbeats.
I've yet to see one presidential candidate mention restoring faith in families, so young men will actually begin getting married again, so if the do get divorced, they will at least be given the right to have access to their children.
Both uses of the term Deadbeat are unacceptable, and just as politically charge. Esser, the new Deadbeat Aggressor.
