You’re on Notice! — Headline: Adam Smith

June 8th, 2007 by Steven Gardner

Steven Gardner writes:

It’s time for the first edition of “Kitsap Caucus: You’re on Notice,” a weekly ripoff of Stephen Colbert.

Today’s edition starts with Colbert, specifically his interview with Tacoma Democratic Congressman Adam Smith, who brazenly gave up national security secrets in his interview with the host. Don’t believe me? Watch the video.

Second on this week’s list is Port Commissioner Mary Ann Huntington. If other voters feel as frequent blog commenter Bob Meadows does, “I would vote for a worthless egg-sucking yellow dog, if that were the only other choice on the ballot,” it could be a rough election season for Huntington.

Fourth placer could be revealed June 18, when Democratic precinct officers make their top three choices to replace County Commissioner Chris Endresen. If the party doesn’t reveal the placement of the runners up, then all eight will be left to ponder how they managed to end up just out of range.

2008 is on the board, because it was clear to me Thursday it’s already a major issue for Kitsap County Democrats in the commissioner decision. There’s a presidential election, too? Wow. What a coincidence.

We’re having trouble with a couple brands of diapers. Apparently the makers assumed our son’s clothes were designed to act in teamwork with the diaper, so we’d be fine if the diaper caught some of the deposit and left the rest to his “My daddy loves me,” onesie. That wasn’t our understanding.

An Alabama senator punched another one recently. I’m not mad they fought, I just want better camera angles.

Diamond Parking is on notice because when the company tickets you in Bremerton, it provides you with a plastic envelope that seems perfectly suitable for a single stamp. But if you mail it with one stamp, you’ll get it back. The postal service wants 17 cents more, because it can’t run the envelopes through a machine. Expect a story.

Finally, Superior Court Judge Michael T. Sauer is on notice for sending Paris Hilton back to jail. Ask yourselves America, if Paris Hilton can be jailed, are any of us really free?

Remember, “You’re on notice” means “I’m watching you,” not “You’re dead to me,” which is a different Colbert subject. Send me your nominations for things or people you’re getting a little suspicious of, or getting a little tired of, or you think are not getting the attention they should. Feel free to duplicate other peoples’ nominations. If something gets nominated a lot, it’s more likely to get on the board.

Then again, this isn’t scientific and is subject to the blogmaster’s personal bias and sense of what’s relevant and/or funny. The board will be updated as frequently as once a week.

    I have to wonder how many rhubarb pies will be offered to Congressman Smith when he runs again in 2008.

    There also have been several fist fights in the Taiwanese Parliament over the years.

  2. A Sailor Says:

    The Judge who sent that person (I can’t really say her name, she’s a loser…*&#&$^, that will never amount to much in life anyways) back to jail should be given a raise for finally putting a stop the coddling these spoiled brats get.

  3. Charlie Burrow Says:

    Besides the tax increase issue, Mary Ann Huntington was one of about two dozen port and county officials/employees to sign confidentiality agreements, in 2003, promising not to disclose information relating to the NASCAR racetrack proposal. See:

  4. D. Keating Says:

    What was the result of the State’s investigation regarding this matter?

  5. John Says:

    If you are going to have public/private ventures, you need to allow the private companies to have some control over information that is propriatary to their particual business. If you do not allow for some confidentiality, programs like SEED will also die. SEED is also keeping companies they are negotiating with confidential and there are probably good reasons for that.

  6. Charlie Burrow Says:

    Ms. Keating, the Attorney General office’s 2005 investigation, into potential concealing of public records relating to the racetrack proposal, was a whitewash, as evidenced, for example, by the failure to pursue evidence of the Port’s involvement.

    I’m currently out of the country thus don’t have access to my records, which include a copy of the AG’s final investigation report. However, it’s my recollection that, despite the fact that six officials at the Port of Bremerton, including all three commissioners, signed confidentiality agreements with the KEDC regarding the racetrack negotiations, the investigators apparently did not interview anyone there during the concealed-records investigation.

    I will be back around the end of the month and able then to confirm the accuracy of my recollections.

If someone employed by an elected official then runs against that elected official, should the employee be fired?
