Jay Inslee drops out of the 2020 presidential race

Although I had seen him many times before, I still didn’t recognize him in the still picture from Maddow’s show. If I had seen just the picture, I would not have been able to come up with a name to match it! He’s the ultimate generic stock-photo, middle-aged white guy. If that whole governor thing doesn’t work out for him, he will have a lucrative career in Cialis commercials.

Although I should have used a mnemonic device to remember him, because he looks exactly like my Uncle Dick.

And quite a bit like Dave Garroway.

In you’re in the same boat, he’s the climate change guy.

I think he’s against it. Or for it. I forget which. Either way, he doesn’t think we’re doing enough about it, so he either wants us to stop using fossil fuels or use more of them.

Anyway, no need to memorize his face now.

The Onion had a funny take on this one:

‘Don’t Worry, I’ll Always Be Here To Fight Climate Change,’ Says Jay Inslee Before Ethereally Turning Into Majestic Oak

And Inslee had a witty response:

  1. He’s leading by example. More low-pollers need to get out, the sooner the better. Then make like the Loopinator and flip some Senate seats.

  2. I don’t understand the snark of this post. He did a pretty good job bringing attention to the issue of climate change, and we’re talking about it now even as he is dropping out. I don’t think he really expected to be nominated, but I do think that we could very likely see him again on the national level if a Democrat wins – I think it’s very likely a Democratic president would offer Jay Inslee a cabinet-level position to work on environmental protection.

  3. Inslee’s the “climate change” candidate and didn’t get invited to CNN’s climate change debate. Even Andrew Yang got invited to that one!
