  •  My resume (5+ / 0-)

    Thanks for checking me out.  I have been in and out of public service for many years.  I have chosen to return to public service because it is a key component of my DNA.  Please continue to share the word about Idaho through different media so that others can focus on a US Senate race that will change the political landscape in a tough state and impact our nation in a positive way.

      in our modern society, curmudgeons don't fare well on ye olde publick stage. Tried running for local office, lost by 14 votes against the incumbent, much prefer reading HL Mencken, Swift, Twain, and other professional curmudgeons, and take lessons from them.

      Are there any radio or newspaper debates scheduled?

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

      •  Live Debates - Risch would rather eat barbed wire (5+ / 0-)

        We're trying to get a commitment from Risch to participate in the statewide League of Women Voters debate that is carried by Idaho Public TV and moderated by the Idaho Press Club.  Interestingly, Risch has ducked the '08 GOP Primary Debate and the '06 General Election Debate sponsored by those groups in a traditional format.  Editorial writers around the state have roundly criticized Risch for ducking this public forum. His arrogance is on full display by his avoidance. I will continue to try and get an early commitment from him.  The AARP and Lewis-Clark State College in conjuction with the Lewiston Tribune are trying to schedule something.  Channel 7 - KTVB - in Boise has sponsored some debates in the past but they are not live, don't allow the media to cover the forum and aren't statewide.  I favor "live" debates so that they are covered and in real time.
