Goldy: "Dino Rossi: Careless or Carefree?"

There's been a lot of talk in recent weeks about some of Dino Rossi's more boneheaded flubs.

Like demonstrating to the Seattle Times editorial board his near total ignorance of "net neutrality," an issue they've editorialized in favor of on numerous occasions. Or maintaining his fierce opposition to Obama's stimulus package while touring a Whidbey Island shipyard that had added dozens of jobs thanks to $840,000 in federal stimulus money. Or inexplicably insisting that WTO findings of illegal Airbus subsidies should not be taken into account in awarding a $40 billion Air Force refueling tanker contract that could bring thousands of jobs to the Puget Sound region.

Some have chalked off Rossi's curious statements to strategy, others to a doctrinaire conservative ideology. But I have an alternate theory that I find at least as plausible: perhaps Dino Rossi just doesn't care? MORE...

Howie P.S.: This reflects the current liberal-progressive thinking that Rossi is toast. I have cited the following little bit of Yiddish wisdom in the past and it is pertinent again here: "From your lips to God's ears."
