Excerpts from his blog, Postman on Politics
The state Democratic Party said it would change a video about Republican Dino Rossi after the Italian Club of Seattle complained Wednesday that the ad is "racist" and "beyond offensive."
In a letter to Gov. Christine Gregoire, the group said the video, which criticizes Rossi's connections to the Building Industry Association of Washington, "aims to link Italian-American gubernatorial candidate Dino Rossi to Italian-American criminals through the use of the theme song to 'The Sopranos.'

What idiots!! You know, I am SO glad that I don't belong to a political party. I like being unaffiliated with lunkheads.
