Location: Kent, Washington, United States

I was born in San Francisco and grew up in Anaheim. I really didn't have much interest in politics in those days.Other than Pres Reagan anyway.My wife turned me on to rush limbaugh and the rest as they say is history.Some Consider me a hard core conservative.I don't,yes I am a conseravtive but I'm more open minded than the hard core ones.For 10 years we lived in skagit county during that time I was a pco Area chair and county yr chairman.Since my wife and I moved to Kent almost 3 years ago the fargo precinct in the 47th district where we make our home has sat empty.Its been actually 5-6 years since its been vacant. The King Gop doesn't like me so empty the fargo precinct sits.

So when did free speech become illegal in the King County GOP?

Many of you know I am not a big fan of the King County GOP.
When its needed I have been pretty outspoken about them.
Well here comes another one of those times.Let me say that
this is not a fun thing for me to talk about.

This all began back at the king county GOP convention
in June.Phil Fortunato became a surprise late opponent against
Pete von reichbauer.One of the things fortunato did was he had a
brochure detailing some of the differences between he and von reichbauer.
Sounds reasonable doesn't it I mean who wouldn't want to know that?

Well not to Michael Young it isnt.Thats right Michael young told fortunato
he couldn't distribute the brochure and if he did the delegates would not
be allowed to vote for him.Such an American thing do, my first thought
was you have got to be kidding me.I wondered what would happen next.
Soon enough I would find out.

This past weekend at the annual King County GOP picnic it happened again.
Edwina Johnston was handing out a flier she had put together detailing
what she believed had gone terribly wrong with the redistricting
of the king county council.Yes she did mention by name von reichbauer,
Reagan Dunn and that democrat Jane Hague who masquerades as a
republican on a daily basis.

Some of you may not agree with what Edwina said but she had a right to
say it. In Michael youngs world she doesn't .He told her she couldn't hand
it out and if she did he would have her arrested.So this is what its come to
trying to intimidate a 72 year old woman.Thats real class on the part of
are illustrious party chairman.Meanwhile Reagan Dunn stands near by thinking
how funny it is.Reagan you wouldn't think it was funny if it happened to you.
You have also demonstrated that if it was a brochure or one of your supporters
attacking Steve Hammond you could care less.

This is supposed to be the republican party of king county not
an outpost for Michael young to decide whose views he likes best.
Oh and before any of you say that what Edwina Johnston or Phil
fortunato did is against the county or state bylaws don't.Because its
not true.Now I know Michael young says he was doing this for
party unity.Sir you cannot have a united party when you try
and silence those that don't agree with you.

Let me give you an example of how you do it the right way.
Prior to moving here I lived in skagit county.It gave me the opportunity
to work with one of the best county chairman that I have ever known Mark
hulst.When mark took over skagit was much like king is now.
They were divided and had not won a whole lot of elections in a long

In a short period of time mark was able to unite them.He didn't do this
by trying to silence anyone.He let them all have there say and while he
didn't agree with everything they said.He respected there opinions and because
of that they respected him.The party members then worked together and
guess what they had a lot of success.

Mr young you should be ashamed of yourself and your goons for
trying to scare a 72 year old lady.The only thing you accomplished
was making yourself look foolish.If you had any honor at all you
would do the right thing and resign.At the very least you should
apologize to Edwina young for what you did to her.Oh and it doesn't
really look to good when you have John Wootress threaten others
with physical violence that don't agree with you.Its not very becoming
of a leader of political party to do that and certainly not something
that George W.Bush or Ronald Reagan would ever do.

If you want to turn king county around this kind of
behavior must stop at once.

Next Week The US Senate race Up close and personal.

finally up.Along with my email address.

Wow Wow Wow!!!

Good Afternoon,

Today I met Susan Hutchison for the first time.Now I went into this
meeting with high expectations.All I can say is Wow Wow Wow.
I was so blown away by her,Susan is just something special.
I sure hope she decides to run we really do need her.

Everything I thought about Susan Just exploded before my
very eyes.She was so much more than I ever imagined.
I hope all of you get to see and here what I just did.
People like Susan are rare, lets hope the state GOP realizes
that before its to late. I consider myself
very lucky to be able to know her.There just aren't many
people like her.

Let me finish by saying this again There is know better
person than Susan Hutchison.I don't think a person can be any
more convinced than I am about Susan.Its time we had a Senator
we can all be proud of.

This week:So when did free speech become illegal in the King county Gop

Susan Hutchison: The more I know The more I really like

Good Evening,

This afternoon I had the opportunity to speak with Susan Hutchison.
It was the first time I was able to do so.We talked for about 20 minutes
on the phone.All I can say is she is an amazing person.I can't remember
a time when I had such an enjoyable conversation.

After 20 minutes I was even more convinced that she is definitely
the right person for senate.Susan still hasn't decided what she's
going to do yet.Whatever she decides is ok with me because in my book
Susan is already a winner.I remember a good 7 or 8 years ago
I was watching kiro 7 news with a friend of mine I said to him
if that lady ever decides to run for public office she will win.

Now at the time I was still young in the world of politics so
I wasn't taken as seriously as I am now.My friend said to
me your crazy.How could you possibly know that?I said there's
something about her that right now I can't put my finger
on but I just know.

So when I heard Susan was considering running for the senate
I became very excited.Once again I started telling those I knew
that out of the three potential candidates Susan was the best
one.This time unlike before I knew why.Susan inspires those
around her and now more than ever the state GOP needs that.
Sometimes I think the state GOP needs Susan more than she needs them.

Now you would think that after 11 years those I told about
Susan would be more inclined to listen.At first I got some of
the same responses.Things like spackman your nuts and some
that I wont dignify by saying them here.However unlike 7 years ago
once I began to explain my reasoning.A lot of them started to
come around to my way of thinking.

I will use this analogy, some of you know I am a big BYU football fan.
The past three years it has not gone well for byu.So now they have
a new head coach he is a man by the name of bronco mendenhall.
Its important to note bronco was there third choice.He got the job
because byu's administration listened to there supporters.They made
enough noise to convince the powers that be that bronco was who
they wanted.

Now I love bronco,let me tell you what he has done so far.
when bronco took over the morale on the team and in the
community was way down.In 6 months bronco has united
and ignited these people.He gave over 500 speeches to various
organizations.Bronco has received standing ovation after
ovation every time he speaks.He has literally fired up the
town of provo and turned the state of Utah upside down.They
love and respect this man.

As for the team well he has got them to work together
and has pushed them to do more than they ever believed they
could do.I told you this story because there are
some interesting parallels between what happened
at byu and what is happening with the state GOP.

Because of what happened with Dino Rossi and Chris vance's
divide and conquer mentality, the republican party in this state
are a rather unhappy group of people.The morale is low and
they are not of one purpose.Right now the state Gop doesn't have a
leader.We need someone who can unite and ignite this party.

Neither mike mcgavick or diane tebilus can do that for a
number of reasons that I wont go into at this time.I am even more
convinced now that Susan Hutchison is that person.
I know some of you are saying spackman are you crazy?

Look I know it took a while for this blog to be taken
seriously.So I will answer it this wayI know this blog
and my political life could come to end because of
this.But you know what I don't care if I had to
do it over again I would do the same thing that I
am now. Because in my heart I did the right thing.
I know Susan Hutchison is the right person.

Dunn-Hammond revisited

Good Morning,

Lately I have been hearing a lot from Reagan Dunn supporters.
They seem to be in a near panic over this race with Steve
hammond.From the very beginning of this contest most of
these people have never been able to defend Reagan Dunn
with much of any substance.

Generally what happens when the Dunn supporters attempt
to debate me about the race.There is about 30 seconds of
actual substance and then they resort to name calling and
personal attacks on Steve Hammond and his supporters.

Usually it goes something like this :You should vote for
Reagan Dunn because he has the money and name recognition
to defeat the democrats.Then it starts well Hammond is
sleazy. He cheated at the convention to win.His supporters
are all far to the right.They back Steve Hammond because
of one issue.Steve Hammond is the biggest whiner.

It gets even worse I had one of Dunn supporters tell me Hammond
is actually a democrat masquerading as a republican.That
Hammond played dirty before the convention.He violated
the 11th eleventh commandment.Well I could on forever
with this.But I think you get the idea.

The one thing above anything else that mystifies me about
this is that Reagan Dunn hasn't condemned this behavior
one bit.It makes you wonder why?Could it be that he actually
likes this.Why not let someone else do the dirty work for
you.Then when its all said and done your off the hook.

What bothers me the most is Reagan Dunn and his supporters
have never been able to say specifically what Steve Hammond
said or did.Is it because they really don't know or is it because
Reagan Dunn needed a good excuse to stay in the race.

My solution to this is that Reagan Dunn and Steve Hammond
need to have a least one debate.Then all of this stuff can be
brought out in the open.I hope once and for all this will put
an end to this nonsense.

Now having said that The chance of a debate ever happening
is very slim.I don't believe Reagan Dunn will ever agree to because
that would put him in a position that he doesn't want to be in. Reagan would
have to answer some pretty tough questions from Hammond
backers.Maybe I'm wrong but I don't think Reagan wants to do that.
you never know though maybe there will be a debate.Will see.

The Republican Establishment Goes After Susan Hutchison

Good afternoon,

First let me start by saying Susan Hutchison is in east Africa
until Aug 15th don't blame Susan for this delay. She left on
July 29th this one's all mine.But have no fear the interview
will take place soon after she returns.

Anyway back on the 28th of July I believe the republican
establishment made there first attempt to derail Susan
Hutchison's campaign for US senate.While she hasn't
officially announced if she is going to run or not.Chris Vance
and company see her as the only viable threat to the anointed one

I believe this whole thing that went down thursday was an orchestrated
attempt by Vance To knock her out of the race as usual Vance missed
by a country mile.Once again Vance underestimated Susan's grass
roots support.I guess this bares repeating Susan Hutchison is the only
candidate that most of the party will rally around .

If Susan decides to run I know she will win it all.Be assured this will
not be the last attempt by Vance to take her out of the race.It just
shows you how out of touch the republican establishment is with
the grassroots.As long as they have the current leadership in place
nothing will change.
