So while Republicans will argue that most of the felons voted in the heavily Democratic King County, and therefore should be deducted proportionally from Ms. Gregoire's total, the Democrats will counter with their own experts who say that felons in the state tend to vote Republican.

The Republican base has always been nonunion, white, blue-collar males, and that's who the felons are in the state of Washington, said Paul Berendt, chairman of the state's Democratic Party.

Note he didn't say that felons are who the Republicans are in the state of Washington.

That would've been rude.
