Utilizing the typical insufferable rhetoric which plagues both extremes of the political spectrum to squirm and pivot through a ICBM nuclear firestorm of tough questions, Washington state governor Jay Inslee is no different than his fellow elected officials, or those joining him on the heat of the campaign trail. However, one must choose the basic directive for their candidacy wisely, or the momentum of the expansive locomotive of political intrigue can be derailed in an instant.
As one of the underwhelming and virtual unknown candidates vying for the Democratic Presidential nomination, Inslee furtively positioned himself on the nation’s collective radar screen and qualified for the first two prime time televised Democratic debates. Suddenly, sporadic praise for the the incumbent governor came through mentions and knee-jerk reactions of the talking heads and social media as to this mystery man hailing from the Pacific Northwest espousing a sole platform based on extremist climate alarmist dogma and cumbersome propaganda. While a barely perceptible ripple crested over the continental divide of the nation and continues to murmur with the countenance and fleeting depth mentality marking a teenage infatuation, the voters of Washington know all too well the insidious intentions of a lame duck bureaucrat, with no offense to the endemic waterfowl of the state.
As the numbers just don’t lie, the Inslee campaign from March through June of this year has racked up a bar tab costing state tax payers nearly $600 thousand in security detail and travel, reports The Seattle Times, the audacity of the career politician to conflict with his aggressive climate change platform in earning jet fume induced frequent flier miles is beyond reproach. “Toot, Toot. Crash!” The incessant rhetoric of “carbon this” and “climate change mother earth punched that” is worse than listening to the repeated circuitous tantrum of a child hopped up on sugar and smartphone gaming. It’s just noise and lacks a conscience.
While the preponderance of hypocrisy is notable, the fact that he as no chance in hell to win displays a complete absence in understanding baseline physics, after all, the devil’s realm is based on exothermic reactions, much less an unskilled approach to how the environment actually works. Curiously, the Seattle Times fails to mention the frequency of jet travel, even though the news organization continues to publish biased content that supports the green movement. The obvious wasteful nature of the ceremony honoring self-aggrandizing entitlement in being whisked around the country in grand fashion surrounded by security team of snazzily dressed state patrol officers goes far beyond fiscal concerns and borders on the pathological. In formulating an algorithm modeling the empty quest by Inslee, the latest polls showing less than 1% of a nationwide impression, should be compared to the net energy required for high altitude transportation and ground logistics, and with the results more disturbing than compelling.
For the period between May and July, the campaign played a major league baseball like grueling schedule of 70 dates outside of Washington state, while during that same time frame the Seattle Mariners sleepwalked through 108 games. Criticized from all sides for burdening voters with the expenses, Inslee did the classy thing and quoted state law to justify not taking care of the extensive bill through donors, as the governor’s travel is covered by the tax infrastructure. Subsequently, Montana governor and fellow Democratic primary candidate Steve Bullock opted to pay for travel through his own campaign, as a reaction to heavy scrutiny. Inslee, seemingly lacks any professional accountability in grinding through an inefficient and unfeasible campaign that is inexplicable on all levels except for the munificent presence of pride. To qualify for the next round of debates in September, he will have to make a miraculous and logarithmic jump in public relations performance and average at least 1% in four of the major polls, a likelihood that rivals the impossible scenario of Roseanne every appearing on network television again.
When not lobbying for an uptick in the approval ratings and fundraising, Washington’s governor has unleashed the full power of his authority to sign anti-firearms legislation into law, mismanage a failing mental health care system and appointing liberal state supreme court justices practicing unscrupulously and with an aversion to the concept of being disinterested. It may be a blessing for reasonable voters that the megalomaniac is prioritizing a personal agenda to be a snippet following an asterisk in the annals of history, and not his duties as a chief legislator.
Quire possibly, the legacy of Inslee revolves around the idea of political reform in the facets of campaign financing and latitudes towards active elected officials who are running for a higher office. Though the American dream has no room for a bumbling and stumbling ideological dolt playing presidential dress up while traveling in costly style at 500 mph in the friendly skies six miles high, the individuals and PAC’s continuously donating fiscally to the train wreck of a failure, are just as responsible for a breach in democracy as the overzealous candidate. But the new trendiness of the hipster revolves around the vibe of do it because it simply feels good, and everyone hoping for a vain transcendence can sardonically smile as a result.
