I imagine the film version of this Tacomic to be like the end of Fargo... The Cohen Brothers remake of the classic A Christmas Story where our favorite Richard Dale Washam tool (aka Alberto Ugas) is forsaken to wonder arctic oblivion... Can't you almost here is voice?  A faint whisper on the wind: "Dale?  Dale? What do I do now?  Dale? Dale? Where did you go? Dale?" 

My favorite comment comes from one TNT reader self identified as "lefty_coast"  I admire the stark brutality: 
Mr. Ugas. You are going to get some more legal advice from the stellar legal mind who, for at least the time being, heads the Pierce County Assessor/Treasurer's Office. You would do well to not take that advice.

Dale Washam has played you like a violin. He will tell you that you will win on appeal. The question you need to ask yourself now is, 'How often has Dale Washam been right on legal matters?'.

Of course Dale is going to tell you to appeal. He has nothing to lose; you have much to lose.

Your biggest problem now is you are dealing with Real litigators, not some guy who believes his own hysteria.

After reading your rambling, nonsensical, responses, I am more convinced than ever you filed the petition at the behest of Dale Washam. The question is, will Dale help you pay your legal bills?

I would suggest resigning, as of NOW, then calling Mr. Lindquist, apologizing, and beg him not to financially ruin you.

After reading this story, I am actually feeling sorry for you (just a little). So I will worn you for the third time: Dale Washam, once the wheels come off his wagon, will throw you under that wagon. He will not take your calls, he will not help you pay legal bills which you have incurred through his encouragement, and he will forget your name.

Dale Washam will become more and more desperate. And desperate men, like Dale Washam, will do anything, and everything, to save themselves.

Maybe you don't realize it, but it is time to go. Cut your losses, because Dale Washam, as sure as the sun comes up, will cut you loose.

It seems the sequel to Fargo is Tagro.

Sad I wasn't able to do a Drunk driving TPD Julie Anderson's ex-husband Tacomic in 2010... but there is still time?

Has anyone seen the new TRUE GRIT?

by The Jinxmedic on 12/28/2010 @ 8:00am
Not yet. Want to.

how many tacomics can you find?

RR, I wonder if you are aware of the parallels between your life and that of Mr. Washam:

Both were considered gadflys vying for public office
Both have little sidekicks, Washam has Ugas and you have Max
Both wear unusual articles of clothing, Washam a little glove, you a fez.
Washam brandished hand-made campaign signs, you brandished hand-made cartoons

There may be some less obvious parallels. but that's all i have for now.

we both are devilishly handsome and love to DANC3 !

by NineInchNachos on 12/28/2010 @ 9:27am
but unlike washam i'm devoted to my wife.

by NineInchNachos on 12/28/2010 @ 9:30am
Washam has no INT3GR1TY!

by Crenshaw Sepulveda on 12/28/2010 @ 9:47am
I suggest you Copyright INT3GR1TY right away or Washam will and then he'll sue you in court.

by The Jinxmedic on 12/28/2010 @ 10:25am
Copyright "T3ST1NG H@ND", too.

we saw true grit last friday...way better than the tourist, not quite as good as tron, but my wife loved true grit too?? which is bonus.
dale emailed and inquired if anyone here was going to run against ml and pat...he said he'd pay for the whole thing if we have people to run against them...

by NineInchNachos on 12/28/2010 @ 12:07pm
HA! Dale is a scoundrel, how does he have money to pay for anything? Doesn't he owe all kinds of legal fees and settlements?

I saw True Grit at the Grand Cinema.

The dialog is sharp with some scenes rivaling "The Social Network", my pick for best screenplay of the year. The cinematography is has a lot of attention to detail and is as good as other Cohen Brothers films. I had a few issues with some continuity mistakes and what seems to be a scene left on the cutting room floor.

Overall, the the film is very good and I recommend it.

If it is sold out, I also suggest seeing "The Black Swan" or "The Kings Speech."

RR, in my opinion, this is your best work in months. I'd share my reasons, but they're all technical and uninteresting. It pinched my chest the way Russian novels do.

by NineInchNachos on 12/29/2010 @ 11:59pm
thanks man. maybe I will give your wife a discount on the captiveyak true grit spirit-capture™ portrait after all

by Erik on 12/30/2010 @ 12:35am
A "spirit capture" Tacomic could have legs RR.

hey do you know what the supreme court just said was NOT a frivolous recall?

by NineInchNachos on 7/21/2011 @ 10:59am
ouch my eye !

"The court's ruling also stated that Ugas and his co-petitioner, Dan Fishburn, acted in bad faith by repeatedly refusing to attend court hearings and questioning a judge's authority to make scheduling decisions.

The high court added a final stinger, backing a lower court's decision that Ugas must pay Lindquist $50,000 in attorney fees."

is going to be so freaking sad when there are no more dale washam stories. 

O my god, now come I never get invited to secret campaign meetings with crossed out mark lindquist cartoons?   these people are freaks

by NineInchNachos on 11/28/2012 @ 7:47pm
this is AWESOME!

by NineInchNachos on 11/28/2012 @ 7:59pm
yikes, my number is way off now

"Supreme Court later upheld that ruling, and tacked on an award of attorney fees to Lindquist: $95,709."
