Greg vs. Gregoire

Outrage and lies: Now we're talking!

Get out the popcorn, the show has begun: Mayor Greg Nickels says he's "outraged" at the state for its "flimsy" work studying his tunnel-replacement plan for the Alaskan Way Viaduct. Yesterday the governor returned fire, when her spokesperson, Holly Armstrong, called Nickels' spokesperson, Marianne Bichsel, a liar. Deep in its story, the P-I reports: 

...Armstrong...said the [tunnel] documents the city disclosed are not a full-blown study with any definitive conclusions. She called Bichsel's claim the state had hidden the information "ridiculous and a lie."

It's a refreshing breath of foul air - and while we don't expect it to degenerate to the level of "Greg, you tunneling whore!" or "Chris, you ignorant slut!" they've at least got everyone's delighted attention.
