Eye On Boise

What says ‘serious message’ more than giant dinosaur?

GOP gubernatorial challenger Rex Rammell, who’s campaigned for office in the past by driving a giant, decorated RV around the state that doubles as a rolling campaign billboard, plans to unveil a new gimmick tomorrow: A giant model of a 16-foot tyrannosaurus rex dinosaur, “which will be pulled behind the Rammell for Governor RV throughout Idaho,” the Rammell campaign said in an announcement. The large model will “be used to communicate his states’ rights message about stopping the federal government from usurping state authority,” according to an announcement of tomorrow’s press conference/dinosaur unveiling.

It added, “Pulling a 16-foot green Tyrannosaurus Rex will surely be criticized by the Otter camp and others, but the Rammell campaign thinks the move will draw attention to Dr. Rammell’s serious states’ rights message.”
