In the not too distant past, BlogSunnyside was mentioned alongside another political blog on the Yakima Herald-Republic website. The YHR is a great paper, and maintains its own blogs on-line. One is oriented towards politics, and is called “Checks and Balances”. It is a good blog, and naturally much of the posts are about Yakima.
The other political blog they mentioned on that occasion is The Other Side Online, which is maintained by the Yakima County Democrats. It is a good blog, even if much of it does not make sense, and I encourage everyone to check it out.
Recently, in the Yakima Herald-Republic, they published an article about how the Mayor of Yakima got his undies all in a bunch over “Republican” partisanship in the city politics there. It seems those evil Republicans did not endorse his proposed increase in taxes earlier in the year, so he is blaming them for his inability to get it approved by voters.
As The Other Side Online said:
Now is the time for republicans to muster the courage to speak out against these two faced, lying hippocrites.
As far as I know, there was no discussion among the Republicans of endorsing City Council candidates before this meeting between Mayor Elder and the Yakima County Republicans took place.
Mayor Edler should get over the fact that political conservatives did not approve of his failed EMS levy. Trying to blame it on “partisanship” is barking up the wrong tree.
If Mayor Edler is a Republican, he should examine why he chose to become one. He has, in the past, told people, that he is a Republican. As an outside observer, however, I am left wondering that if all of his policies seem to lead to bigger government, and higher taxes, perhaps he is the “two faced, lying hypocrite” the Yakima County Democrats are speaking of.
