My husband grew up in Pennsylvania, and I was raised in California. When we first met, he said some pretty funny things – he called hamburger buns, “hamburger rolls”, he asked for Hellman’s mayonnaise instead of Best Foods. He also referred to the East coast of the country as ‘the right coast’, meaning right-hand side of the map, of course, but also a subtle dig as to the “incorrect” way we did things out West.
Now we live in Washington state – on the east side of the Cascades, and I find myself making jokes about being right! It works here because the majority of eastern Washingtonians are registered Republicans, or at least lean to the conservative side of the spectrum.
I have been giggling for the past couple months every time I pass one of these signs –
I don’t actually think the west side out-and-out stole the election, but they sure as heck didn’t win it hands down, either.
This piece from the AP, by way of KEPR does a nice job of stating the case about how some of us feel about our current Governor and potential Governor.
