Reminder: King County/City of Seattle primary election tomorrow

Riddle me this: why didn't someone competent run for mayor? I hate Greg Nickels - he's a sell-out to development interests and has attempted to treat the city like his personal fiefdom, like he aims to be a West Coast Daley. But when he's running against Richard "Kurt Cobain Was Murdered" Lee and Jeanne "I paid the fee but haven't bothered campaigning" Dixon, how is it supposed to be possible to oust him unless you REALLY want to see someone wearing a red rubber nose and giant shoes racing around City Hall in a VW bug filled with twelve of their best friends?

Otherwise, I'm generally speaking voting a Stranger ticket, but I do advise anyone who's registered to vote to very carefully consider the Port of Seattle positions. Those people have very little scrutiny once the election is over and they can (and do) tax the bejeesus out of us, so vote for someone you think will do it well.
