Attention Mom and Dad and other human beings.

What would you do if your kiddo brought home straight Fs for the last two or 12+ years running? Would you hire a potential employee who scored perfect nine or four percents on every test? What about the job applicant who racked up nothing but zeroes in every performance eval?

Uh, yeah. Me, too.

So Grays Harbor, why do you keep sending reps like Derek Kilmer, Patty Moron and Maria CANTdoanythingWell back to D.C.? Cuz that’s how they score on the Conservative Review scorecard. Like this:

·        Rep. Derek Kilmer, Washington (D)

According to BallotPedia (this is funny):

Based on analysis of multiple outside rankings, Kilmer is a more moderate left of center Democratic Party vote. As a result, he may break with the Democratic Party line more than his fellow members.

·        Sen. Maria Cantwell, Washington (D)

Don’t toss your cookies or anything, but I don’t necessarily agree with everything CR generates. When it comes to the Three Amigos, however, them folks are on to something!

The good news: Some of these sweethearts are up for re-election in ’16. Hope springs eternal…

“The Liberty Score® grades members of Congress on the top 50 votes over the past six years. The rolling six-year window shows a more accurate picture of a lawmaker’s performance than traditional one or two-year scoring methods. The Liberty Score® empowers conservatives to quickly determine if a politician is supporting conservative principles separating their rhetoric from reality.”

Or, in Murray’s case, think Disneyland.
