Governor Jay Inslee, Alleged Lying Whore

There’s outrage over in Washington, the other Washington, because Governor Jay Inslee, who serves as Governor of Washington, was dubbed a “Lying Whore” by opponents of his tax hikes.

Most of the outrage is localized in the media which is busy calling for more civility after a letter sent out by Voters Want More Choices described the Democrat as a “Lying Whore”.

“Candidate Inslee repeatedly promised to veto any tax increase,” the Voters Want More Choices letter said. “He said no way to higher transportation taxes in 2013. Inslee said he’d grow jobs to generate more tax revenue. What a lying whore he turned out to be.”

In his defense Inslee has argued that he only opposes extending old taxes that are due to expires, but he also apparently supports new transportation taxes, making him a liar, if not necessarily a whore.

During the campaign, Inslee said, “I would veto anything that heads the wrong direction and the wrong direction is new taxes in the state of Washington.” That statement was just ambiguous enough for Inslee’s defenders to claim that he isn’t technically a lying whore.

The Washington GOP Chairman has called on the man behind the letter to apologize for labeling Inslee a “Lying Whore”. While the GOP Chairman does support calling Governor Inslee a liar, he does not support calling him a whore.

Governor Inslee’s spokesman has refused to respond to allegations that the governor is a lying whore. Tim Eyman, one of the men behind the letter, has refused to apologize for describing the lying governor as a “Lying Whore.”

“(Inslee) doesn’t deserve an apology,” Eyman said. “He deserves to keep his word and as promised to not raise taxes, to veto any taxes, and if there are going to be any taxes they should go on the ballot.”

Mike Fagan, another of the men behind the letter, defended the description of Inslee as a lying whore by pointing that the dictionary definition of whore accommodates anyone who is “considered as having compromised principles for personal gain.”

The Seattles Times and the Spokesman Review have been working themselves into a fit, calling for more civility and denouncing the denunciation of Inslee as a “Lying Whore” as childish, vulgar and juvenile. They have not however responded with a factual argument proving that Governor Inslee is not in fact a lying whore.

The same media that has no problem with civility when going after Republicans, discovers a hidden civility gene when one of their own lying liars is dubbed a lying whore for being a liar. But that civility is never reciprocated.

When Eyman was asked in a phone interview why Jay Inslee was labeled a “Lying Whore”, he replied: “For the same reason that the little boy said the emperor has no clothes, because it’s true.”

    "There’s outrage over in Washington, the other Washington, because Governor Jay Inslee, who serves as Governor of Wisconsin…" Considering there's outrage in Washington, he's probably the governor of Washington, not Wisconsin. Everybody who's anybody knows Wisconsin has Walker.

    • Arlie

      That's what confused me. I know Scott Walker is Governor of Wisconsin. Who is this Inslee? A Progressive lying pos…..probably TRUE. Must be the State of Washington.

      • Mary Sue

        Yup. He used to be a congressman.

    • Jennifer Call

      Exactly. Scott Walker. And if Inslee is a Democrat then he is more than likely a lying whore, as is Obama, he has it down to a fine art. And he is concerned about climate change, which means he'll tax you all the more, because of the fictitious "global warming." I miss Washington, but not since Spellman have you elected anyone with any sense. It's all the fault of the Californian ex-pats who have taken over the Seattle area…Rural Washingtonians are still pretty savvy, and still like their guns and their Bibles. I would move back but unlike the 80s when I lived there, it's way too expensive now. I cannot afford it.

  • Arlie

    LOL ! I believe you only missed using the "colorful descriptive phrase" in one paragraph. That has "flamed out" the "descriptive phrase" DNC (they are all that and more). So funny, I couldn't stop laughing.

      One is hard pressed not to label the media anything but liars, and it is hysterical to see their hackles up when Demsters are caught in the same lying act.
      Guess what? All is not lost. The lying media had their shorts in a knot just last weekend. Their lack of access to The One left them spitting mad, yet they still ! failed to ask the "right" questions – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/21/the-continued

        Media Have Become An "Enemy Of The American People" http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2012/09/29

        Former network producer: 'I'm done' denying liberal bias in the media http://exm.nr/MrmPE0
        "…After NBC's Andrea Mitchell was caught using edited video to make Mitt Romney look out of touch, Kandra decided he was finished defending what we call the "Democrat-media complex." "Forget it. I’m done," he wrote, adding: You deserve what they’re saying about you. It’s earned. You have worked long and hard to merit the suspicion, acrimony, mistrust and revulsion that the media-buying public increasingly heaps upon you. You have successfully eroded any confidence, dispelled any trust, and driven your audience into the arms of the Internet and the blogosphere, where biases are affirmed and like-minded people can tell each other what they hold to be true, since nobody believes in objective reality any more. You have done a superlative job of diminishing what was once a great profession and undermining one of the vital underpinnings of democracy, a free press."
        He concluded by asking NBC: "What the h**l is wrong with you guys?"

    Proud to be from Spokane, the right side of the state. Those pukes on the coast ruin the whole state, too many people moved up here from California.

    • Mary Sue

      …and brought with them the same failed ideas and policies that are currently ruining Cali.

      Though I think maybe you also have some NDP British Columbians screwing up stuff for you too there, as well…

  • FPF

    He is getting paid for what he is doing right? So are the people in the media, the WH and the Capital Hills.

  • wwotp

    Governor = politician = lying whore

    And when I see apologies to Sarah Palin's family from the Democrats, I'll support civility in public discourse.

  • objectivefactsmatter

    "The Washington GOP Chairman has called on the man behind the letter to apologize for labeling Inslee a “Lying Whore”. While the GOP Chairman does support calling Governor Inslee a liar, he does not support calling him a whore."

    It's important to distinguish between lying politicians the many honest prostitutes. Not all whores are liars. Then again, simply calling him a liar is pointless too, since it's redundant. Nobody actually expects politicians to tell the truth.

    What to do these days?

  • slider 96

    "getting paid " ? ….hmmmm . Compromising "principle " for money , makes on a wh**e . Now if one LIES , that is compromising principle ! So if one is a LIAR , then one is also a wh**e !

    Oh Yea ! LOLOLOLOLOL

    The feigned calls for civility are only heard when the focus isn't on the Socialsts.

    Libelous and Slanderous Insults Help Democrats Sway Ignorant Opinion http://www.americanthinker.com/2012/05/insults_he
    "Republicans may bridle at these insults, or we may laugh. But we are chumps when we don't take insults seriously. Slander provides the Democrats with a huge electoral advantage. Many centrist voters, though not radical or loony themselves, have come to believe these libels against Republicans as commonsense, evident truths…"

    So now that President Obama is beginning to bite, not nibble, fairly substantially around the edges of yet another tax increase, this time one on the middle class he said so often he intended to protect, what is President Obama if Governor Inslee is a "lying whore?"

    Personally, I think calling a person a "whore" in public is pretty low class and should be avoided.

  • ron

    His smile tells it all if there ever was a look of destrust it is in his smile the same as the look of OBAMA the look of a Dictator not a president of America. Lie is in their KORAN. They lie to gain their agenda it is natural for the MUSLIM, and OBAMA is one. Look America He is giving the Muslin Brotherhood Planes and Tanks and you are paying for them and they will be used to Kill your sons and daughters in the future. They want your guns so that you can not defend your self against them when they come to take your wealth. When they come be sure to give them all your BULLETS first.

  • MacBeth51

    I agree with Eyman about Inslee, but I’ve got to say it’s a case of the pot calling the kettle black. You could even say it takes one to know one

  • jpattitude

    LOL. Love the way you worked the phrase "lying whore" into the article a million times. Maybe if we repeat things liberals will finally get the message.
