Stapilus: Who Are Lefty Bloggers Against Johnson?

Randy Stapilus/Ridenbaugh Press: (State Controller Keith) Johnson’s web site includes several clever “enough said” videos. One of them says this: “2 out of 3 left wing, Idaho bloggers endorsed Robert Vasquez in the Republican primary for Congress. Because he would ensure the Democrats a win in November. The third endorsed Sheila Sorensen. Enough said.”

DFO: Could it be possible that Johnson believes this blog has made an endorsement, rather than The Spokesman-Review Editorial Board, as a whole? That he thinks HBO is a “left-wing blog”? You can see the video by following the link provided by Randy here. Johnson should have named names. On the other hand, his comment about 3 liberal bloggers in North Idaho show that he has no grasp of the blogosphere situation in the state. I figured he was out of touch when he said at that Post Falls forum that health insurance was a luxury. Mebbe to those who have always had it handed to them as part of an employee package.
