Pacific County Democrats annual crab feed, South Bend, Wa.
You can't have a political gathering without saying the pledge of allegiance. And you can't say the pledge without a flag. But what happens when the venue you're holding your event has misplaced its flag? You grab the nearest cop and pledge to the flag on his shoulder.
Tonight's Dems crab feed featured a number of local, state and federal politicians and candidates including US Congressman Jay Inslee, the Democratic candidate for governor, and US Senator Maria Cantwell (who is saying hello to my favorite Ilwaco city councilor).
