    Or -- erm -- words to that effect, seem to be the thought of the day here in Southeast Idaho.

    I'm not convinced it was anyone in the state Rethug Party pulling out the long knives again ol' Wide Stance. I think it's just as likely some former Idahoan working at the courthouse in Minnesota was filing the paperwork, saw the name and said, in their best Keanu Reeves voice, "Whoa!

    I read an interesting conjecture a few minutes ago -- Craig resigns, Otter decides he'd rather be a lousy Senator than a lousy Governor, works it out with Risch to give the job to him and have Risch appoint Otter to the Senate.

    Is it possible? I suppose. Probable? Probably, um, not. But hell, it sounds as good as any other theory right now.

    I'd rather Craig went through the trap door because of his love of torture or hate of science of any of a thousand other bad decisions he's made in his political career. But, hey, never look a gift undercover cop in the mouth.


    Tilting at windmills, with the proper armor and enough firepower, can be a productive effort.

    •  I can't see Otter going back to DC (0+ / 0-)

      Course I didn't think Kempthorne would go back, either.

      I agree--there are plenty of reasons much better than his personal life that should have sunk the old bastard. But it doesn't work that way, usually, does it.

      But I keep coming back to "why Roll Call?"
