"...the most condescending, sexist TV ad..."

...that Joel Connelly's ever seen would have to be a doozy, indeed, but that's his take on Dave Reichert's latest slam on Darcy Burner. I haven't seen it, and given Joel's description, I don't think I want to…
It shows a ditzy blonde showing up for a job interview. She is unable to list any qualifications or give coherent answers and is sent away.

Waiting in the wings, as she leaves, is Dave Reichert with a sly look on his face.
It's unclear to me how that applies to the Harvard educated former CAP wing commander who went on to a successful career in a highly demanding business environment, but I guess I'm just not part of the club. You know the club…

Sadly, Joel succumbs to the "on the other hand" school of journalism in his piece, with a dig at Maria (I like Joel, but I really don't get the man-crush he seems to have on Mike McGavick)…
Democratic groups, acting for Sen. Maria Cantwell, immediately attacked him for laying off Safeco employees and taking a handsome "golden parachute" on leaving to run for the Senate.

McGavick is still defending himself and trying to turn the Safeco issue to his advantage. With surrogates doing her dirty work, Cantwell has spoken sparingly on the subject.
McGavick, of course, did lay of thousands of Safeco employees (he's confessed that a late round of layoffs is one of his greatest regrets, along with his divorce and his drunk-driving bust) after making the transition from Slade Gorton's hatchet man to Safeco's axe man. He did take a "handsome" (some would say "obscene." Me, for instance.) golden parachute. Saying so is hardly "dirty work," regardless of who says so.
