Comment of the Day: McKenna May Be a Nerd, but Inslee is Shallow

On Wednesday Seattle Weekly's Rick Anderson posted to The Daily Weekly about this week's primary election, and how Rob McKenna, while more enthusiastic than his rival Jay Inslee, comes off like and "irritating bright-eyed nerd who sat behind you in junior high, raising his hand again."

As the post notes:

Inslee bested McKenna by roughly 32,000 votes in a gubernatorial primary whose main purpose was to weed out the seven also-rans. But watching the top two discuss the vote afterwards, you saw Democrat Inslee still trying to explain how he would provide a bigger state education budget by somehow pumping up the economy rather than raising taxes, while McKenna made fun of him for trying to do it - much to the delight of his Republican hangers-on.

It was a preview of what to expect between now and November - the warm, likeable-but-is-he-capable Inslee and the didactic, I-have-all-the-answers McKenna.

As politics tends to, the post inspired some discussion. Some, like commenter Joey, weren't buying what Inslee is selling.

As Joey writes:

So what will you say when Inslee loses to the junior high student, as he will in November after the debates. I figure him for one of those snobby school jocks we all detested. I'll bet someone wrote in his yearbook, "Good luck to a shallow guy. You'd make a great Democrat."
