Daily Kos Founder Wows Idaho D’s

Item: Kos’ wears plaid to enliven Democrats: Web blogger Markos Moulitsas pays $1,200 for a cheap suit to help Ada County’s other party keep rebuilding/Anna Webb, Idaho Statesman.

More Info: Moulitsas, who had clearly done his Idaho political history homework, paid homage to Idaho Democrats, in particular, the late Sen. Frank Church, whose early concerns about the preservation of the privacy rights of citizens were ahead of his time, and relevant now, he said, when the Bush administration is trying to erode citizens’ privacy. Moulitsas praised the overflow crowds that showed up to see Barack Obama and to caucus at Taco Bell Arena. Saturday brought an overflow crowd, too. Oxley said 650 people bought tickets, and the party didn’t give away seats away for free as it has in the past.
