Hey, speaking of that, have you read the "oh no, measure 28 didn't pass! Boo hoo!" post in damnportlanders?

No, I avoided it because I knew there would be things there that would piss me off :)

Hehe
I was the only person in there who opposed it, and someone challenged me to find info on how money was being spent. I can't really look since I'm at work. Do you know of any offhand? :)

Ugh. I think I'd consider watching those, if not for the ovations. Instead, I read the text version this morning.

And I'll bet that took you 3 minutes! It probably would have taken him 3 minutes to read it out loud if you took all the clapping out!

I am still trying to figure out for what......

I read the test version of his speech today and all I could think was doom. DOOM!

[sigh]

I also noticed that not one news venue got a good picture of him making his speech.

Maybe they were so distracted from thunderous applause every other word. :)

Re:
I bet he paid everyone in the audience to clap really loudly that way it made everyone watching get distracted from exactly what he was saying :)
