  1. The Gregoire/Rossi contest has been playing out almost like the presidential campaigns. Rossi’s television spots blame the incumbent for the national economy, all crime ever, and specifically, the price of gasoline. A public referendum, promoted heavily by Republicans at the time, and NOT a governmental decree is why gasoline here has a targeted sales tax, adding considerably to its cost. He has no platform, his ads are purely accusation and fear-mongering. The smarmy delivery and refusal to look directly at the camera in his first person ads has been so badly received, that they have been pulled. His latest last-minute attack ad shows a baby with a full diaper. While excretory saxophone sound effects play, adults wrinkle up their noses in disgust. A narrator helpfully clues us in that if we don’t want our state to smell bad, we must not vote for the incumbent.
    Gregoire has been helped by the ineptness of her opposition.
