Failed Candidate Jon Russell puts his hypocrisy aside: now says he'll support Briggs on Washougal Planning Commission.

Was it just a week ago that I nailed Russell by the shwantz for his rank hypocrisy in publicly attacking Mike Briggs?

Russell set new boundaries of hypocrisy by claiming that Briggs had "...made 'disparaging remarks' toward the mayor, City Council and developers in local blogs and media."

Russell's horrific state representative campaign, which followed his equally horrific congressional campaign, clearly showing that he would take ANY political job to get out of Washougal, was replete with lies, exaggerations, insults and everything sleazy about politics.

How HE could accuse anyone ELSE of something he, himself was so over-the-top guilty of is simply beyond belief.

And this is one of Russell's MANY problems: he refuses to hold himself to the same standard he applies to everyone else. And it's this kind of megalomaniacal narcissism that makes him unsuitable for any elected position, anywhere.

So, imagine my surprise when I read the following:
Washougal councilman changes opposition to potential planning commission appointee

Council decision is expected during Monday meeting

By Dawn Feldhaus

One has to wonder.

If Russell is such a "person of faith," then why did he feel the need to trash Briggs last week? Why was it OK then... but not so OK now?

His fake "person of faith" shtick is just one of the reasons why he's so objectionable to me as a politico.

There's much more in the article, but you get the gist of it: this brouhaha was Russell being Russell.

And that's not a great place to be.

Failed congressional/state representative candidate Jon Russell reinforces his rank hypocrisy.

Haven't heard much about Russell lately since his utterly abysmal twin jokes of a failed-from-the-start congressional campaign and an equally and embarrassingly inept state representative campaign replete with his typical lies, exaggerations and false claims concerning his education and his wife's status as a "doctor."

So, in response to those who keep asking me about this twit, I stumbled across this tidbit, where some of the most rank hypocrisy I've ever seen in politics was presented with this twit's usual failure to apply the same standards to himself.

Washougal Council delays appointment of planning commissioner

Interview panel had recommended Mike Briggs

The appointment of a new Washougal Planning Commissioner was anything but routine during a recent City Council meeting.

Council member Jon Russell made a motion on Nov. 15 that the appointment of Mike Briggs be tabled.

Russell said Briggs had made “disparaging remarks” toward the mayor, City Council and developers in local blogs and media.

“There have been personal attacks,” Russell said.

Councilman Dave Shoemaker said planning commissioners have varying opinions. He said he enjoyed talking with Larry Wagoner when they served on the planning commission.

“Those were valuable, civil discussions,” Shoemaker said.

However, he would not be able to support Briggs’ appointment to the Planning Commission due to “personal attacks.”

Councilman Rod Morris spoke in favor of talking about concerns during the next council workshop.

“This should be out in the open Monday, and have Briggs hear it,” Morris said.


Now, it takes a special kind of snake like Russell to attack one of his myriad of political opponents for the exact same conduct that was the hallmark of his campaign.

Russell is lying scum. His campaign showed that he was, beyond any doubt, the absolute worst that politics has to offer. "Disparaging remarks" is the least of the despicable conduct this clown engaged in on a regular basis, conduct that included making up fake facebook and Columbian identities (Teacher Judy Banks) so they could post to each other about how badly I was smacking the crap out of the little creep.

He lied about his education. Lied about his wife's status as a doctor. Lied about opening up a second clinic. Assisted Keath Huff and others in their character assassination of myself and others.

Used fake identities on the Columbian web sites and other locations to attack me and others he's opposed, including on the ubiquitous CW Watch, where, using his punk identity of "The Black Hand, he would attack anyone and everyone wise enough to oppose him or his agenda.

The rank hypocrisy of his complaints over Mike Briggs making "disparaging remarks" about a scum bag like Russell, when Russell has done the exact same thing to Briggs cannot be overstated.

That someone like Russell hasn't been forced off the city council for repeatedly lying about his education is an absolute mystery to me. In fact, had he been a city councilor in Oregon, he likely would have faced arrest for his lies.

For Russell to object to Briggs is unspeakable arrogance and hypocrisy. And if the people of Washougal don't act to get rid of that punk, then they truly do deserve the government they elect.

Yes, it takes a genuine scummy little worm like Russell to do something like this. Why am I not surprised?

Impressions on an election night.

First some awards.

Slimiest creatures to show up at the GOP Victory Party?

1. Keath Huff.

Huff was the gutless scumbag behind my namesake blog. In coming after me because I was constantly bitch-slapping Ridgefield Barbie for being a complete waste of political skin, that little worm decided he could attack and repeatedly trash Ann Rivers.

Huff is scum.

And then after all that, what does that slimeball do? He leaves this on Ann's FaceBook page:

It takes a genuine asshole to try and make nice after doing so much deliberate damage and engaging in an effort to politically destroy someone, particularly when that someone wasn't even in your district.

A grade A, number one anal orifice.


I understand your attraction to a complete empty suit like Barbie. But I will never forget the playground bullshit you ran in a genuine effort to destroy Ann's candidacy as if that would somehow shut me up about that clown in your picture... when all it did was to make me even more determined to see her out of politics, an effort I will literally spend the rest of my life engaged in thanks in large part to your work.

I can't speak for Ann. But she ought to kick you in what's left of your miniature testicles until you can't see straight.

2. Jon Russell.

Russell's lies and support of the Huffer's blogging efforts are well known. His support and work with the democrat Rivers destroyed in the election are even better known.

The political Russell's of the world are what give politics a bad name. Lying about his education to everyone, how much money he raised to the PCO's, and his wife being a doctor should have made him ashamed to show his face.

3. Nansen Malin.

Malin is the elected chair of the Pacific County GOP, a county something on the order of 100 miles from the victory party in Clark County. I wondered what the hell she would be doing HERE instead of her OWN county on an election night, until I remembered that because of her stellar efforts as a county GOP Chair, not a single Republican ran for anything anywhere in her entire county for this election.

Not one candidate.


For any position.

In all of Pacific County.

Best known for sending out a lying, scum-filled, vitriolic letter filled with false accusations and lies against a sitting state senator, Nan is all about using her position to be THE GOP social butterfly, working SO hard, EVERYWHERE in Washington State, except where she NEEDS to work: Pacific County.

Don't need to work there if, after all, you're such a failure that you can't even find someone to run for ANYTHING.

So, of course, if you're an abysmal, colossal, utter failure as a GOP County Chair and you're applying for the full time position of toady to an empty suit, why would you actually spend time in the county you were elected to run on an election night?

Silly me.

2. Biggest surprise.

a. I am surprised that Allen Svehaug appears to be the winner for the county commission seat. While the campaign wasn't anything to brag about, Alan only has to make up 2.1% plus one vote to take out Steve Stuart. With hard-right breaking votes to be counted in the next 31,000, I think he may just get it done. We'll sure know more by COB tomorrow.

Considering that alleged Republican Marc Boldt ENDORSED Steve "Easy Money" Stuart for re-election (Getting that quid pro quo thing all lined out) it could be just the tiniest bit awkward in the county commission chamber should Svehaug get this done.

b. That Peck didn't do better.

I thought it was going to be close, but I was reasonably sure that Peck would win. After all, the fact is that electing any democrat in the legislature for anything is yet another vote for the fringe left leadership that led to the horrific $800,000,000 tax increase on all of us from the last session, and Candy Man Moeller's moronic "is it candy or ain't it?" tax that the people slaughtered in the guise of I-1107.

c. That I-1100 didn't win overwhelmingly.

The slimy, nonsensical and moronic ad campaign the unions ran were a crock, start to finish. I was surprised that the people would actually buy into their lies and nonsense and overlook the obvious advantages of getting the state out of any retail liquor sales... or any other retail sales.

I-1100, which I supported, may still win. But I was sure it would be stronger.

3. Biggest disappointment.

That the people elected a worthless nit to a position of importance when she lacked the education, experience and integrity of a picket fence.

Never forget: Without Cathy McMorris-Rogers interfering in our local politics and making a deal with alleged Republican Marc Boldt, there is no way this scarecrow would have been appointed to anything, given the fact that she'd been gone for the ten prior years before McMorris hand-fed her the appointment because of her connection to Boldt.

Herrera accomplished absolutely nothing in the legislature, and she will accomplish absolutely nothing in DC that CMR doesn't order her to do, providing CMR's 5th District with a defacto second member of Congress.... except once again become a legend on the DC party circuit while we're paying her $175K to boogie.

Clearly, people like Huff and Barnett lost their minds about Babbling Barbie. And now we all have to suffer as a result.

Other thoughts as they occur.
