revolution in the air

Spotted these stickers at Vivace this morning, wonder how many will be left by tonight. If I were a better internet correspondent I would provide some examples of how these are factually incorrect, but it almost seems too obvious to check the wikipedia.

    Ah, yes. The people who live in liberal Seattle and hate the fact that liberal Seattlites elected a liberal mayor. Not to borrow a page from the conservative playbook, but why don’t the haters move to one of those red states we have so many of?

    I admit Nickels is the only mayor Seattle has had in my short tenure here (the risk in a highly mobile culture, I’m afraid), but what’s he done that’s made people so mad at him?

    One reason a lot of people hate Nickels is for his attack on nightlife. Sadly, Seattle nightlife has traditionally always had a lot of enemies, from former city attorney Mark Sidran to the Washington State Liquor Board to certain segments of the SPD, Belltown condo owners, and many, many more, but Nickels makes a convenient target for the focusing of rage because of his actions in office.

    He’s pissed a lot of people off in a lot of other ways, but I’ll leave any further explanation to those who are better qualified to talk about local politics than I am, but do some reading up on the night life issue (The Stranger have done an excellent job of covering this over the years, so they’re a good place to start) and you’ll start to understand the anger.

    I should add, however, that I don’t think he’s actually our worst mayor ever. I’d have to think about who it is, there are a number of solid candidates for the title.
