Goldstein stumbled into politics in 2003 with a satirical statewide initiative to officially proclaim Washington’s serial anti-tax-initiative sponsor Tim Eyman “a horse’s ass.” A year later, Goldstein transformed his campaign website,, into a national political blog.

Goldstein hosted “The David Goldstein Show” on 710 AM-KIRO from 2006 through 2008 and is currently a staff writer for The Stranger. His writing has also appeared on the Huffington Post and in The Nation.
