Hot Air (Blows Hard)

I believe I've told the story here before about being at a meeting that Jim McEntire was also attending, and how I wound up sitting next to him. At one point, Pat Downie, nature's great ditherer, was holding forth as he likes to do, and McEntire, unbidden, turned to me and said: "Pat and I are in the same business - hot air."

It was perhaps the only true and honest thing I ever heard come out of his mouth. I thought of that hot air as I read the praise-filled, new-deficient and entirely unnecessary article about McEntire's "retirement" today. Good lord. He's leaving office, people - you don't need to keep kissing his ass.

Cookies are still delicious - especially the ones
that someone else pays for! And there are still
cookies in the world, yes indeed.
 
Anyway, as Dim King Jim relinquishes his crown, I wanted to take one last moment to say what a monstrous, corrupt and cretinous bully he was, and doubtlessly still is. His greed hasn't just gone away. His sleazy nature hasn't suddenly self-corrected. I haven't seen him apologize for being a thug and a bully. So, yeah, it does seem likely that he won't stay "retired" for long. Especially not in Clallam County, the land where scams are plentiful, and oversight is rare.

Dim King Jim may be leaving, but we still have Nelson Muntz
and Donald Trump to model bad behavior.

  1. McEntire or no McEntire, Mark Ozias is still going to be walking into a den of snakes when he goes into the courthouse. This will force Chapman to show his true colors, whatever they may be this year, and it will be interesting to see if Jim Jones attacks, or just sees this as an opportune time to retire.

  2. Good riddance!

    Now to turn our attention to getting those 4 losers off the PA city council. With a representative City Council and decent board of County Commissioners, there might be some hope of actually addressing the problems around here, instead of fending off those that keep working to make more problems.

  3. After I read the PDN article, I wondered who would be the next organization(victim) that he attempts to poison and bully in retirement - perhaps the local Clallam County Republican Party? But I realized quickly, they already have Dick Pilling. Time to move on and find a group that has narrowly defined ideology and purpose. And one that won't vote him out!!!!!!

  4. Behind the scenes update: Not one person - not a single soul - wound up at this blog today by searching for "Jim McEntire."

  5. You'd think he invented penicillin. I have never read such a fawning political obituary. Come on Rob, how much did dim jim pay for that one? Here is a man who has been feeding at the public trough for 40 years and nothing good to show for it excepted an expanded waistline. Good Grief. Maybe he will start selling advertising for the PDN...

  6. Are your earthquake preparations in place?

    1. The Lincoln Theatre is still standing which should put to rest the talking point you Negative Nellies recite about the Lincoln Theatre not being earthquake proof.

      It's still standing!

    2. What we experienced out here could hardly be considered an earthquake. I wouldn't want to be in that building if a real one struck.

    3. The Nippon Mill is still standing, too. But that doesn't mean that it isn't built in a hazard zone or that it isn't a blight on the community.

  7. So there's this Sequim facebook group that seems pretty friendly and positive. But after last night's earthquake I noticed this morning that John Brewer is a memebr and posted at least four times with status updates on the earthquake, like he's some authority. We're all capable of going to the seismologic site or the news and finding out the answer. I may have to leave that group if he insists on continuing to try to spoonfeed us all information.

    1. It is not really NEWS until it has been officially sanctioned as NEWS by John Brewer, Publisher Emeritus. Until it has received the Official Sanction, it must remain a rumor, vague speculation or, perhaps, never happened at all.

      Fortunately, last night's earthquake has received the Official Sanction of John Brewer, Publisher Emeritus, and can therefore be considered to have happened and to be NEWS.

    2. How does the Great and Mighty Brewer differentiate between, say, an earthquake, and a fart rumbling out of his fat, lazy ass?

  8. There they go again, Jim Casey this time, acting like Ken O did something worthwhile while in town. Well he did, he and McEntire set in motion the chain of events which will culminate in a few years it the biggest and most expensive clean up in history of Port Angeles. Even bigger than the eventual 100 million dollar clean up of the harbor which was polluted by Port lease-holders all those years. Wait until they start cleaning up after this composites recycling scam. Here's the headline in the not too distant future,
    "Hexavalent Chromium fouls water supply--residents forced to move"
    Clallam County is slowly becoming the new "Love Canal" of the west and the PDN eggs it on with these adoring puff pieces about the ones who caused it. Soon the militarization of the peninsula will be much easier without all those "civilians" around.

    1. And imagine all that taking shape under a, say, Rubio administration. It could happen, and it would be devastating for Clallam County.

  9. I'm thinking of making a big placard to put in the side windows of my car that say something to the effect of " Shame on you, Cherie Kidd" on one side, and " Shame on you, Pat Downie" on the other. Probably will make similar ones for Gase and Collins.

    I would encourage others to do this, too. These losers need to see public shaming of them, everywhere they go in town.

    Campaign style yard signs, too. Little posters stuck in every public space.

    Maybe someone can get a hold of a couple of those really big helium balloons like the car dealerships fly their signs on, and hoist up " Shame on Cherie Kidd" signs around town.

    This last things with Cherie Kidd saying people who didn't return ballots count more than those who did, was the last straw. We will ramp it up, throughout town, until they step down.

    As 2016 approaches, what better way could there be to organise the New Year than with a calendar featuring a dozen images of abandoned mattresses?

    The bizarre wall calendar is the creation of a writer and social media manager known only as Warpdog, who lives in the London borough of Walthamstow - where all the featured lost bedding was found.

    It has been dubbed the Abandoned Mattresses Unoffiical Calendar 2016, and is the latest in a series which has been going since 2011.

  11. Speaking of the motels in Port Angeles, have you noticed the OTHER motel on the way into town with burned out sign lights?

    Now it's "The Sportsmans el".

    Yeah, Port Angeles is el for most of us that are stuck in this el hole.

    1. Unlike other motels around town, the owners of the Sportsmans Motel will get it fixed pretty quickly. It gets good online reviews and the owners seem to care about the appearance of their property and their reputation.
