      this, because if I were ever able to get close enough to speak the words, I'd be unable to resist the urge to slap them across the face and say "since you have no shame, I'll give you some".

      And I'm trying to stay out of jail.

      George Orwell is banging on the lid of his coffin and screaming, "1984 was a cautionary tale, you dolts, not a motivational speech!"

      Risch's US Senate disclosures peg his net worth betweeen $17 Million and $83 Million.  He granted property tax relief but failed to disclose to Idahoans his vast real estate holdings. He raised the sales tax 20% on food/groceries. He opposes any increase in the minimum wage.  He thinks George Bush is one of America's greatest presidents.  He has no plan for health care modernization/reform.  Any questions?  Larry LaRocco

        Why the hell would anyone vote for him?

        My dogs think I'm smart and pretty.

        •  Risch's post-Palin bounce - over and out (2+ / 0-)

          Risch got a bounce after Palin was nominated.  All of that is coming back down to earth.  Three polls pre-Palin had Risch in low 40's - he is now in that range due to heavy TV ads against him in ALL Idaho markets for raising the grocery tax 20% and opening the door to privatization of Social Security.  Additionally, I prevailed in each debate against him.  I was the clear winner.  The 3 candidates on the right fringe should take 70,000 - 80,000 votes from Risch.  The Demo ground game in Idaho in '08 is awesome.  Larry LaRocco
