With the first presidential debate in the can — Obama was only rope-a-doping him, right? — and the November election a month away, it’s time to turn to the poles on Capitol Hill to find out what people are thinking. Let us know if you’ve seen any thought-providing political posturing via postering that we’ve missed.
- The Stranger’s Eli Sanders dug in on this picture from the Washington Bus group’s Toby Crittenden of an intriguing political statement that’s popped-up on Capitol Hill. Here’s how Seattle club king Marcus Charles explains the “Progressive Conservative Coalition PAC” –
Let me start off by saying that I hope you don’t miss the fact that I also support Obama and R-74. I think ideological purity is not possible no matter what party you are associated with and that ideological purity at all costs is what is hurting our democracy, and is what ultimately could destroy the Republic. All of us need make decisions on issues and candidates based on much more than party affiliation and that is what my effort is all about.
There’s a lot more here.
- CHS found these flyers posted along 15th Ave E. A search of the Web and Facebook turned up no additional information regarding Queers Against Capitalist Crap but, if nothing else, the effort goes to show that, even on a topic like R74, there’s a diversity of opinion in the neighborhood. And a healthy sense of humor.
- Winner of the 2012 election in terms of total utility pole saturation is socialist candidate Kshama Sawant. The SCCC prof is running a campaign against 43rd District incumbent Frank Chopp. We haven’t seen any pole flyers for him.
- Meanwhile, the Seattle Grrrl Army isn’t only about sexual politics as this 12th Ave anti-gentrification message found across the street from the be-pinked and shuttered Capitol Hill Market attests. No direct election implications here, though, right?
