I will say this: Christine Gregoire has been an absolute disaster for the state of Washington, and I wouldn’t be sad at all to see her go. I’d actually be quite elated. Especially if she left before October 3rd, so we could have a free-for-all governor’s race where a Republican could emerge victorious. Who that Republican would be, I have no idea.
Anyway, back to Gregoire. Her approval rating’s been in the been in the mid-30’s for months now, and she just signed off signed off on a state budget that the Seattle Times called “utterly unsustainable.”
What better time for her to pack her bags and head to D.C.?
