Wow! Ridgefield Barbie Lives! When it comes to fundraising, anyway.

Perhaps the most cowardly congresscritter in the United States is our very own Jamie Herrera.

Unfortunately, like most in Sodom-on-Potomac, her only concern has nothing to do with representing us: au contraire.

It does, however, have everything to do with using her sick child as a campaign prop and it certainly does have everything to do with getting re-elected.

Unfortunately for us, that's not what she's supposed to be there for.

Exclusive of any of her positions, she's too much off a coward to even hold open town hall meetings.


Because we don't care.

What are her positions on the issues confronting us?

Damned if I know: she won't tell us.

When we needed her to kill the federal dollars for the CRC scam, where was she?

No where.

Oh, that doesn't mean she didn't go through a few of the motions: write a letter here and there (She's really good in having her staff write a letter or two for her)  get slapped around by Tim "The Liar" Leavitt because of it... but what did SHE, PERSONALLY, ACCOMPLISH on killing the CRC rip off?

Not a damned thing.  That was left to the locals to clean up her mess.
She had time to waste on a nowhere bill to undo the Pearson Air Museum fiasco... a bill that had no chance of accomplishing spit...
But no time to drop a bill to save us from the biggest boondoggle in the history of the Northwestern United States.

Marc Boldt got her appointed to the open legislative seat back in '07 because Cathy McMorris, who Marc had had something of a crush on during his legislative days, asked him to get her gofer a gig... even though that simple idiot hadn't even lived here in something like 11 years, had no clue what was going on, and sounded like a blithering idiot during the already greased county commissioner fake interview up in Longview.
Several times during Thursday's interview, Herrera confessed ignorance of various issues, saying for example that she hadn't known that Cowlitz County is not subject to the state's Growth Management Act.
Eh.  What the hell.  She's got no idea what's going on... give her the job anyway.

The rag described her then as a "family values conservative" because that's the scam she ran to get appointed.

Now, of course, they call her a "Republican moderate."

She is, all in all, a self-aggrandizing liar who has accomplished virtually nothing since it's been our misfortune to have her in DC.

In everything from lying to us to get appointed:
“I was honest about who I was before I was elected. I have not changed … I stuck to the issues that the people elected me to work on and I beat every Republican I ran against in the primary,” Herrera Beutler said. “If I change that now, I think that would be dishonest.
(No.  You weren't.  You were lying your ass off to get elected, just like you lie now on those infrequent occasions when you say anything at all)

To being such a coward and so thin on the issues that she can't intelligibly articulate them while refusing to hold open town hall meetings, Jaime Herrera has been a complete and total waste of effort in DC who has done far more TOO us (Like vote "yes" on the recent RINO Ryan budget that funded everything most Republicans hate) then she has FOR us.

She does the absolute minimum to keep the job.  She's mailed it in for years and will mail it in until we wide up and get rid of her.

Ridgefield Barbie, the Camas Manikin.

That will be her legacy.

The Headline Game: headlines I'd like to see in 2016

More as I think of them, but these are a start.  In no particular order:

Clinton Indicted over email scandal, Faces 920 years confinement

Obama to resign in lieu of impeachment.

Jimmy Moeller clobbered in primary: political career thankfully over.

Democratian closes, Campbell apologizes: "We lost our way in this community and forgot our job was to report the news, not make it or try and shape it."

RTC announces I-5 Bridge replacement "to be put aside until 2 other bridges built in different locations, east of the 205 and west of the I-5 to Hillsboro."

East Bridge Construction begins.

West Bridge Bypass Construction begins

CRC contractors indicted

Tim "The Liar" Leavitt indicted for CRC conspiracy.

Rivers fails to file, will not run for reelection: "I apologize for lying to get elected on the gas tax and tab fee issue."

State Ethics recommendations to be written into law: first up, conflicts of interest require recusal when voting on legislation and judges/justices can no longer rule on cases involving campaign donors.

State Supreme Court reconsiders and throws our McCleary: acknowledges no legal grounds to order Legislature to act.

Boldt resigns over missing 2012 campaign funds: Gave himself $5000 in campaign funds while a county commissioner to repay a loan he never made to himself.

Crain destroyed in 49th District House primary: admits she was a leftist plant all along.

County Council to gut charter, go back to commissioner model and require county-wide votes for all: "Hatred is never a reason to legislate, and while legally, we can't get rid of this garbage, we can neuter it back into democracy."

County GOP sanctions Kimsey over his dishonesty on the Charter vote and use of the Voter Pamphlet as an anti-GOP position campaign piece. "That's what democrats do.  He needs to become one."

County GOP sanctions Scott Weber: "Lying to get elected is never acceptable."

County GOP sanctions Jaime Herrera: If you're going to claim to be in the GOP, you should at least, occasionally, vote like it.  Also, the idea that Herrera doesn't communicate with the people or hold open town hall meetings?  Who wants a coward representing them in Congress?"

GOP loses control over state senate: "Gee.  Maybe if we had voted like Republicans and engaged in a tad less corruption, we might have kept control over it."

Local fringe-leftist gadfly Jimmy Mains announces waves of fake Republicans running as "independents:"  "RINOs can't win any other way, so they're with me on this."

Boldt changes his mind: won't rip "In God We Trust" sign out of county council chamber.

Mariners break .500.

Vick acknowledges 2014 campaign lie: "Yeah, I claimed I was on 6 committees but that was merely eyewash to get you suckers to think I actually was working."

Boldt kicked out of PCO position:  Never showed up in 3 years he'd been a PCO.
