Thoughts on politics, faith, sports and other random topics from a red state sympathizer in indigo-blue Portland, Oregon.

Let me think...what party is he from?

Today's Oregonian announces that a minimum sentencing measure has qualified for the November ballot, and it only takes four paragraphs for reporter Tony Green to point out that it was sponsored by "Republican Kevin Mannix."

(In the Breaking News blog last night, it was actually in the second paragraph.)

Not former legislator Kevin Mannix. Not former gubernatorial candidate Kevin Mannix. Not even Salem attorney Kevin Mannix. But Republican Kevin Mannix. Because, you know, his party is entirely relevant to this ballot measure.

So if and when Initiative No. 109 is certified for the November ballot, I look forward to reading that it was sponsored by "Democrat Phil Keisling."

Think it will happen?
