I swear, the governor's race is going to make me lose what's left of my already-addled, almost-half-a-century-old brain. Please, make them stop. Or start, as the case may be. Just do something. I know I've already vented about this.
But today, I saw this headline in the P-I:
Democrats aim to link Rossi to child-health veto
That, of course, refers to the Republican who is not a candidate for governor and the health-care bill Gov. Christine Gregoire -- who is not yet running for re-election -- says is a non-partisan issue.
And at the Spokesman, Rich Roesler writes on his blog that a Republican dinner tonight has been closed to the press. Roesler talked to GOP Chairman Luke Esser and reports:
He said he didn't want to risk giving any fodder to the "frivolous" complaint by state Democrats that Rossi is already a de facto candidate whose appearances around the state amount to a stealth campaign.
Secrecy is clearly the best way to deal with questions about a stealth effort. Well played gentlemen.
