Govs bet on Seahawks-Saints

OLYMPIA — Add one more politicians' bet to the list of wagers over today's Seahawks-Saints game.

Gov. Jay Inslee's office said today he has bet Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal that if the 'Hawks win, Jindal will donate 100 pounds of Louisiana seafood to a food bank of his choice. If the Saints win, Inslee, via Ivar's, will donate 500 cups of chowder to a Louisiana food bank.

Ivars freezes chowder and ships it around the country, in case you were wondering what shape it would be so many miles away from “Acres of Clams.”

About 250 attend Jindal event for McKenna

More than 250 people attended a fundraiser for Republican candidate for governer Rob McKenna in Spokane County Wednesday evening.

The event featured Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal and was held at the home of Mike and Pam Senske, who live southeast of the city of Spokane, according to an invitation for the event. Mike Senske has long been active in Spokane-area politics and their son, Mike A. Senske is the chief executive officer of Pearson Packaging and was a member of the transition team for Spokane Mayor David Condon. (An earlier version of this post incorrectly listed the younger Senske as the host of the fund-raiser.)

McKenna's campaign had declined on Wednesday to say where the fundraiser would be held.

Attendees were charged $125 per person to attend a “pre-reception and photo opportunity” and $40 to attend an “outdoor dinner.”

Republican star stumps for McKenna in Spokane

The frontrunner to be the Republican nominee for Washington governor brought a GOP star to Spokane on Wednesday to help raise money for his campaign.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal – often listed as a potential vice presidential nominee this year as well as in 2008 – joined Washington Attorney General Rob McKenna soon after disembarking from a private jet at the Spokane International Airport about 5:15 p.m.

After speaking briefly to reporters at a podium not far from the parked plane at the XN Air terminal, Jindal and McKenna were headed to a fundraiser at an undisclosed private residence in Spokane. McKenna spokesman Charles McCray said he didn’t have details immediately available about how many people were expected or how high of a contribution was required to attend. He declined to say who was hosting the event.

Today’s fun video: Jindal voice-overs

The worst thing for Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal after his response to the president’s speech Tuesday night might be being compared to someone else.

Someone who doesn’t actually exist, except as a character on a sitcom: Kenneth the page on “30 Rock.”

The Web is full of such comparisons, including this one that intersperses Jindal quotes with clips of Kenneth-isms from the show.
