BlatherWatch questions Susan Hutchison’s temperament for public office. It’s a must-read for King County residents. Money quote:
Hutchison, 55, looks good on paper and great in front of a mirror or a teevee camera, but substantively, and temperamentally, we found her, er, wanting. She couldn’t answer policy questions, and wouldn’t answer fundamental political questions, like “where do you stand on a woman’s right to choose,” or “who did you vote for president in 2008?”
She got visibly angry with some of our questions during the interview (the aforementioned on abortion being one) and called us at home later to clarify and reframe answers. She could be bat-her-big-eyes charming but also bristly, brittle, and defensive.
Because it was for a magazine, not a newspaper, she scolded us like an ex-girlfriend. “I thought you were going to be different!” she cried.
If she wins the election, she’ll be as good for King County as George W. Bush was for America.
