Writings and observations

“We can just stay angry …”

Now this one is remarkable – one of the more remarkable political spots of the season, and it doesn’t even mention the opposing campaign. It is – dare we say it? – intelligently motivational.

The spot, by Denny Heck – the Democrat running for the House in Washington’s 3rd, against Republican Jaime Herrera – is about the economy and jobs, and takes full note of the public anger about those subjects. But it provides some appropriate direction for it: To those people who created the mess, as opposed to those who are trying (at least) to solve it.

One of the best Northwest spots of the season.
