    committed by both parties.  The medical community is publicly silent, but there are rumors that she performs surgery that other docs think is unnecessary.  She has the backing of Loren Parks, who moved to Idaho to avoid paying taxes, but still meddles in Oregon politics on behalf of extreme conservatism.  If she takes the primary I suspect there will be more revelations.

    Art Robinson is a nutball - he has mailed hundreds of letters requesting people to mail him their urine for one of his theories (he runs a scientific institute) and thinks radioactive waste should be spread evenly over the world to encourage mutations adapted to a nuclear world.  He was thumped by Peter DeFazio in the last two elections, and had his son run as a Democrat in the primary in an attempt to weaken DeFazio.

    Tootie Smith is a true tea bagger - she and John Ludlow are wreaking havoc in Clackamas County (which is basically our own little suburban Appalachia.)

    Anything is possible, but right now I don't think our record of not electing Republicans to statewide office is at risk.

        I worked out there for 20 years.  The insularity and resistance to change is deep.

          You may think it is insular and resistant to change, but that doesn't make it Appalachia.
