Today’s fun video: GOP has ‘mountain to climb’

 

Washington state Republican prospects for capturing the governor's mansion apparently are so bleak that state Chairwoman Sheryl Hutchison has taken to YouTube and likened it to climbing a mountain.

The analogy is somewhat strained, particularly where Hutchison talks about how both mountain climbers and political activists need tools, and for activists it's apparently a smart phone. Later on, there's sort of an uncomfortable moment when Hutchison says "I want to be roped up with you."

But there hasn't been a Republican in the governor's mansion since January 1985, so maybe they need something like this to get the juices flowing.
